Omega New partner
WorldTempus is happy to welcome Omega as a new partner.
A company created in 1848 by Louis Brandt and now owned by the Swatch Group, Omega is famous worldwide for its role as official timekeeper of the Olympic Games (since 1932), for its Speedmaster, the first watch ever worn on the moon, in 1969, and for his association with the world’s favourite spy. The company has also teamed up with humanitarian organizations and non-profit organisations to promote conservation and clean energy.
The name “Omega” came from a 19-ligne pocket watch movement that was produced from 1894 using industrial methods and replaceable parts. Ten years after the introduction of this movement, its name was adopted by the company.
In the early decades of the 20th century, Omega was a pioneer in the development of watch movements, winning numerous precision competitions. The brand has presented numerous innovations in sports timekeeping technology ever since and its Speedmaster has outlasted a number of its competitors in some of the most severe tests ever devised for a wristwatch.
Omega has also revolutionised the very heart of watchmaking with the launch of the Co-Axial Escapement in 1999, and more recently, its Master Chronometer certification, the highest level of testing in the watchmaking industry.
Its collection is based around four well-established watch families that are constantly being re-invented with the use of new materials and technology : Constellation, De Ville, Seamaster and Speedmaster.
