HISTORY: The History of a
Successful Company Omega was founded by Louis Brandt at La Chaux – de – Fonds, Switzerland in
1848 as an assembly workshop. In 1879, after his death, his two sons Louis Paul
and César started the in-house manufacturing so they started having total
production control. One year later, Omega moved into a small factory that
became a huge one when 12 months later they bought the entire building. In
1903, they both died leaving the company in 24 years old, Paul Emile Brandt’s
hands. Because of the crisis that the Second World War left, he had to work
really hard in order to face the economic difficulties. He merged Omega with
Tissot calling the new company SSIH. The SSIH group continued to grow and
multiply under his leadership and, by the seventies, it had become Switzerland’s
number one producer of finished watches and number three in the world. In
1985, the holding company was taken over by a group of private investors under
Nicolas Hayek leadership. It was immediately renamed SMH (Société suisse de
Microélectronique et d'Horlogerie). SMH had a rapid growth and success becoming
today's top watch producer in the world. Named Swatch Group in 1998, it now
includes Blancpain and Breguet.
