What does the brand stand for?
OMEGA – they shot for the moon and literally reached it. In 1966, Buzz Aldrin was wearing an OMEGA Speedmaster on the Apollo Mission to the moon. And it was not the last time an OMEGA watch has visited outer Space. Since then, OMEGA has proven again and again their status of being among the best watch brands on this planet. At the 1931 Geneva Observatory event, OMEGA received first prize in all six categories – yes you read it right, six out of six! A feat that noother brands has since managed to achieve. Today, OMEGA is again pushing the limits of watchmaking by introducing new technologies and materials to the world of watchmaking.
If you believe in permanent excellence and if you think being second was never an option: Congratulations! You have found your brand.
