The classics from Omega
The Omega Speedmaster - Moonwatch
The Omega Speedmaster Moonwatch: An icon of timekeeping, born in 1957 and a symbol of the pioneering spirit ever since. In 1965, it received the official NASA seal of approval, and on July 21, 1969, it made history as the first watch to set foot on the moon. Since then, the inscription "First Watch Worn on the Moon" has proudly been displayed on the back of the case, a tribute to its incomparable role in space history - also known as the Apollo 11 mission.
But the true test came in 1970, when the Omega Speedmaster faced the Apollo 13 mission. An oxygen tank explosion forced the astronauts to abort the mission. Here the Omega Speedmaster demonstrated its reliability under extreme conditions and ensured the astronauts the precise time measurement that is essential in crucial moments. A timepiece that not only writes history, but also stands on the side of explorers in the most critical moments. The Omega Speedmaster Moonwatch – more than just a watch, a connection to the eternity of space travel.
The Omega Seamaster
The Omega Seamaster, also affectionately known as the James Bond watch, is a timeless icon that traces its roots back to 1948. From the very beginning, this robust diving watch has been valued for its outstanding performance and reliability. A distinctive feature that sets the Seamaster apart from other watches is the elegant seahorse embossed on the back cover - a symbol of its connection to the world of the sea.
The '90s marked a pivotal moment in the history of the Omega Seamaster, as it burst onto the silver screen and became an integral part of the James Bond film series. In films such as "Goldeneye" (1995), "Tomorrow Never Dies" (1997), "The World Is Not Enough" (1999), "Die Another Day" (2002) and "Casino Royale" (2006). the legendary secret agent an OMEGA from the Seamaster collection. This cinematic connection highlights not only the elegance and sophistication of the watch, but also its functionality under extreme conditions.
The Omega Seamaster offers impressive waterproofing and withstands the challenges of the ocean depths. With its precise timekeeping and robust construction, the watch embodies the perfect symbiosis of style and substance.
The Omega De Ville
The Omega De Ville embodies the essence of timeless elegance and refined craftsmanship. This exquisitely designed watch is a masterpiece of watchmaking that has its origins in the early 1960s. Since then, the De Ville collection has captured the hearts of watch lovers worldwide.
With a sophisticated design that combines classic elements with modern flair, the Omega De Ville exudes a timeless beauty. The precisely crafted case, available in various materials such as stainless steel or gold, gives the watch an incomparable sophistication. The dial, with its clean lines and elegant hands, is a reflection of precision and style.
The De Ville collection offers a variety of models, from simple dress watches to complicated mechanisms. Whether you choose a model with an automatic movement or a quartz mechanism, every De Ville is an expression of the highest watchmaking art.
In 1999 the De Ville model with coaxial escapement was introduced for the first time. Advantages of this inhibition system are:
- lower friction - i.e. a more efficient transfer of energy from the barrel to the spring mechanism
- Higher accuracy - by reducing friction, the accuracy of the watch is improved
- Longer service intervals - due to the lower friction, the parts do not wear out as quickly and therefore have longer service intervals.
The Co-Axial escapement has become a distinctive feature of Omega movements, particularly in high-end models such as the Omega De Ville and Omega Seamaster. This technology helps maximize the performance and precision of the watches, making them particularly attractive to watch lovers and collectors.
The Omega Constellation
The Omega Constellation was first introduced as a standalone model series in 1952. From the very beginning, the watches in this collection were known for their outstanding precision and elegant aesthetics.
A significant step in the history of the Constellation was the decision to equip these models with chronometer certificates. These certificates confirmed the watch's exceptional precision and established the Constellation as one of the first collections to receive this highly respected certification.
The Constellation quickly became known for its distinctive design elements, including the "claws" on the bezel, which were not only decorative but also improved the watch's tightness.
In 1982, the Constellation underwent a reinterpretation with the so-called "Manhattan" design. The signature claws were reworked and the models received an eye-catching bracelet that became a Constellation trademark.
In 2007, Omega introduced the Co-Axial escapement to the Constellation collection. This innovative technology helps improve the accuracy and longevity of the watch.
The Omega Railmaster
This model series was launched in 1957 and stems from the long association between Omega and the railway. It is characterized by an antimagnetic double housing. This watch was intended for engineers and workers.
The Omega Railmaster is equipped with the latest anti-magnetic technology that protects it from the harmful effects of magnetic fields. This feature makes the watch particularly attractive to professionals who work in magnetically contaminated environments, while maintaining precise timekeeping.
Inspired by the classic Railmaster models of the 1950s, today's Railmaster combines vintage aesthetics with contemporary technology. The dial, often minimalist and easy to read, pays tribute to the heritage while giving the watch a modern touch.
From the moon to the ocean: Omega watches and their groundbreaking history
The history of Omega watches stretches back more than 170 years and is characterized by innovation, precision and outstanding design. The brand's origins date back to 1848 , when the watchmaker Louis Brandt opened a small workshop in La Chaux-de-Fonds, Switzerland. The quality of his work was already apparent back then and the brand quickly gained reputation.
Omega's breakthrough came in 1894 with the introduction of the famous 19-ligne caliber, which was characterized by outstanding precision and reliability. These qualities earned the brand several awards in chronometer competitions, and Omega established itself as one of the leading watch brands in the world.
A pivotal moment in Omega's history was its participation in the Olympic Games in 1932, when the brand became an official timekeeper for the first time. This laid the foundation for Omega's close association with the world of sports and timing at international events.
In the 1950s, Omega introduced the famous Speedmaster, which soon became known as the "Moonwatch" . This model accompanied the astronauts on the Apollo 11 mission in 1969 and became the first watch worn on the moon. This historic moment cemented Omega's reputation as a pioneer in space travel history.
The Seamaster collection , first introduced in the 1940s, also gained popularity and was particularly noted for its waterproofing and robust construction. The Seamaster watches became the official timepiece of the British Navy and remained a fixture in the world of diving.
Omega continues to set standards in the watch industry by introducing innovative technologies such as the Co-Axial escapement system, which improves the accuracy and longevity of watches.
Today, Omega remains synonymous with elegance, precision and technical innovation.
