The history of Omega begins in a watch-making establishment set up by Louis Brandt in 1848. Its past, its chronometry, and its collections make it one of the best known brands in the world today. Owned by the Swatch Group since 1985, it is famous for the use of its own co-axial movement and innovative materials. It owes its glamour image to its legendary ambassadors.
