Omega George Clooney visits the manufacture
The American actor had a behind-the-scenes look at how Omega watches are produced, with Raynald Aeschlimann, President and CEO of Omega, as well as Nick Hayek, CEO of Swatch Group.
Swapping Hollywood for Bienne, Omega ambassador George Clooney recently dropped by the brand’s new factory in Switzerland to explore the state-of-the-art watchmaking inside.
The new facilities opened its doors in 2017 and this was the actor’s first chance to see how and where Omega completes its timepieces. On a special tour with Raynald Aeschlimann, President and CEO of Omega, as well as Nick Hayek, CEO of Swatch Group, George Clooney was able to discover the five floors of space used for all of the brand’s watch assembly, training and quality control.

There was also an up-close look at the METAS testing area for Master Chronometer certification. It is here that Omega certifies its watches at the industry’s highest standard for precision, performance and magnetic resistance.
George Clooney has been a true fan of Omega watches since childhood. The Speedmaster, especially, has been his choice for many years. It was therefore an opportunity to see how today’s modern collections are made.
A company of the Swatch Group, OMEGA has been behind major revolutions in watchmaking technology and the timekeeping of numerous Olympic Games. Its watches are worn by world-famous celebrities and have travelled to the moon, the depths of the ocean and everywhere in between.Find out more >
