About Watch Company of "Omega": Each watch mark has the history. But it is far not everyone makes history as it has made Omega. The history of mark of Omega is rich with various achievements in the field of watch skill which at times amazed the world literally. In the Greek alphabet letter OMEGA is a synonym of total perfection. In watch industry OMEGA is, perhaps, one of the most known marks, a symbol of the absolute design and technology. Louis Brandt started researching and developing pocket watches in 1848 in La Chaux-de-Fonds, Switzerland. The quality of workmanship and attention to detail would foreshadow the watches that would later carry the Omega name. Brandt continued making watches there until 1877, when he formed Louis Brandt & Fils company with his oldest son, Louis Paul. Louis Paul and his brother Caesaer moved the company to Bienne two years later. It remains there to this day. Innovators in every way, the Brandt brothers were the first swiss watch makers to use the divided assembly line. Allowing quality watches to be mass-produced, this process also allowed the prices of the watches to be moderated as efficiency improved. The company went through several name changes through the years--Louis Brandt & Frere (1891), Louis Brandt and Frere-Omega Watch Co. (1903), Omega, Louis Brandt & Frere (1947), and Omega Ltd in 1982. Through all of this time and through all of the name changes, the pride in quality of workmanship remained in the Omega watch. While accessible to the general public, the Omega watch has an outstanding history. Omega first mass-produced the pocket watch in 1894. By 1902 Omega introduced the first wrist watch. Omega has been the proud official timer of no less than 21 Olympic Games. Omega watches were designated the official watch of American astronauts and Russian cosmonauts. On account of its precision and reliability, OMEGA's Speedmaster watch was chosen by NASA as its official chronometer in 1965 and 4 years later was the first watch to be worn on the moon, when, on 21 July 1969, Neil Armstrong made his giant leap for mankind. In more recent years, OMEGA has continued to build on its reputation for precision and innovation, presenting the world's first self-winding wristwatch with central tourbillon (launched in 1994) and the revolutionary coaxial escapement sur developed in conjunction with renowned English master watchmaker George Daniels first offered in limited series in 1999.
Please remember that vintage watches have survived for many decades by being treated well. Vintage watches are not for wearing while doing yard work, working out, or swimming. Vintage watches cannot keep time like their quartz cousins and will need altering on average between +-2 to +-5 mins per day. They are a little more destructible than modern watches. Vintage watches also require periodic service and cleaning. Every couple of years, they would like their 20,000 mile checkup, oil change, and general service. By taking care of your vintage watch, you will have years of great service, and a quality heirloom to pass to another generation.
