In 1848, Omega was born in La Chaux-de-Fonds in northwestern Switzerland. The founder, Louis Brandt, opened a small workshop for inserting pocket watches in the local area, and started Omega's early watchmaking business.
In 1894, the "Omega" 19-ream movement was produced. This movement was awarded with precision timekeeping certificates issued by several famous European observatories. The company decided to rename it with the Greek letter "Ω" as its logo. The name of Omega was born. .
Since its establishment, Omega has not only been committed to creating practical and reliable timepieces, it has also shown its skills in space and deep sea, providing accurate timekeeping in the field of sports timing, while constantly upgrading and developing timing technology and equipment. In recent years, OMEGA has upgraded the movement to a highly antimagnetic Master Observatory movement and announced that it has obtained the new Master Observatory certification (METAS) in cooperation with the Swiss Federal Institute of Metrology (METAS).
