Few watch companies have managed to build themselves a name that is known the world over, to almost everyone. Actually only two have, Rolex and Omega. Established in 1848, Omega is one of the biggest boys of the Swiss watchmaking industry and of the Swiss economy. You see, Omega is much more then a watchmaker, it is a universal brand associated not only with movements or other horological stuff but also with much bigger concepts such as Swiss social movements, the Olympic games, James bond or even farther, space exploration: the greatest human adventure yet. Part of what made Omega as well known as it is today is their iconic model, the Speedmaster, happily picked by NASA to equip their astronauts. The legend was born, still told over and over again today, the first watch on the moon. But Omega is much more than the Speedmaster or the official Olympic chronometer, it is an incredible and almost infinite collection of watches, from sporty chronographs to elegant chronographs to tool watches to dive watches to dress watches to crazy watches, and on and on.
