The history of the brand
Omega is an unforgettable watch brand. It has marked time at key moments in history: it was used in Americans in World War I, became a chronograph for the 1932 Olympics in Los Angeles and is now, it was worn by astronauts on the Apollo 11 mission of the 1969 moon landing and is famous for being the watch that appeared on the film set in the 007 saga. All this was born in the mid-nineteenth century when Louis Brandt began to refine watches for third parties but it was his sons who expanded the company by starting their own production and controlling the manufacturing chain. The real breakthrough came in 1894 when they created the first 19-line caliber watch and called it Omega like the last letter of the alphabet. This was done because the movement was so technological and innovative that it wanted to symbolize the maximum achievement of watchmaking. From there they took inspiration to use it as the name of the watch company.
