Founded in 1983, the business continues to offer only the best service and values for its watches. Omega is a Swiss luxury watch manufacturer founded in 1848 in Bienne, Switzerland. The brand is well recognized around the globe and has achieved several notable achievements such as being Britain’s Royal Flying Corps choice as their official timekeepers in 1917. The American army also chose Omega as their official timekeepers in 1918. Omega has been the choice of NASA for years and has been the first watch on the moon. Omega has also been the official timekeeping device of the Olympic Games since 1932.
In 1999, Omega made history by introducing a watch with a co-axial escapement. The co-axial escapement functions with no lubrication, making it superior to the traditional lever escapement. The co-axial escapement increases the watch’s accuracy over time because the mechanism uses a radial friction instead of sliding friction. The first watch on the moon in 1969 was the Omega Speedmaster Professional Chronograph worn by Buzz Aldrin. Neil Armstrong was the first man on the moon, but he had left his Speedmaster inside the Lunar Module as a backup so he never wore it officially as he set foot outside his spacecraft.
