Omega Watches

 

In the Greek alphabet the letter Omega has been synonymous with accomplishments and perfection for 2,500 years. In watch making, the Omega brand is at the forefront of know-how, design and human achievement. It has perpetuated the qualities of its Greek name for over 150 years.

Founded in 1848, Omega watches can be found today in space, at sea, in stadiums, on Formula 1 and CART circuits, on fashion runways, at evening galas, and wherever men and women venture. From the Speedmaster Professional, the only watch worn on the moon, to the elegant Constellation, Omegas have been the watch of choice of personalities like Cindy Crawford, Martina Hingis, Ernie Els, and 007, James Bond.

It was Omega in 1970 that introduced the first Quartz calibre Beta 21, launching the Quartz revolution in watch making. Omega's commitment to excellence has earned them the privilege of being the official timer of the Olympic Games 21 times and being designated the official watch of American astronauts and Russian cosmonauts.

In 1965 the mythical Speedmaster was chosen as the NASA official chronograph, and in 1969 it landed on the moon attached to the wrist of Neil Armstrong. It helped save the Apollo XIII mission crew, and for this received the Snoopy Award.
