About Omega
Omega, the prestigious Swiss brand and member of Swatch Group Ltd., the world’s leading watch manufacturer, was founded in 1848. For more than 160 years the brand has been synonymous with excellence, innovation and precision, making it the only watch brand to be associated with the conquest of space, and the brand that since 1969 has produced the “Moonwatch” – the first watch worn on the Moon.

Faithful to its original pioneering spirit, Omega continues to make technical and watchmaking history with innovation in areas as diverse as sports timing, precision technology, and design – innovations that led to the conquest of ocean depths and space. Most recently Omega became a partner and a technical advisor of Solar Impulse, a project to circumnavigate the Earth with a solar-powered airplane.

The brand is also a major supporter of sports. OMEGA has served as the Official Timekeeper for 25 Olympic Games and will continue that role during the Sochi 2014 Olympic Winter Games and Rio de Janeiro 2016 Olympic Games. OMEGA is also proud of its brand ambassador program, which has partnered with world-class athletes and celebrities such as Michael Phelps, Nicole Kidman, Cindy Crawford, Daniel Craig and Greg Norman.

Since its creation Omega’s history has been dedicated to innovation, record precision, audacious design, pioneering spirit and a tradition of excellence in watchmaking. This tradition was further demonstrated in 1999 with the launch of the revolutionary Co-Axial movement, developed with the noted British watchmaker George Daniels and constituting one of the 20th century’s major innovations in watchmaking excellence.
