Omega has been known as a popular watchmaker in almost all over the world and Switzerland is the home for this watchmaker. It has produced many products which are very famous for the beauty and for the great quality. In 1848, Omega was first established at La Chaux-de-Fonds, Switzerland and the founder was Louis Brandt. Today, this brand has been worn by people who are very famous and influential like presidents and actors.
Omega was founded in Switzerland in “La Chaux-de-Fonds” as early as in 1848. It was not his founder Louis Brandt but his sons have helped the watch company to start its journey to become one of the best-bought quality watches in the world. With their help, the company took over all ways of production and from then on all watches were made and assembled in the same place. Omega moved to Biel Bienne and started with the larger production of its watches, which first were pocket watches then wristwatches. Omega and the other famous watchmaker Tissot has worked together on several projects. Both companies are under the Swatch Group today. Omega first became popular when it released its first ever diver’s watch in 1932. Ever since, Omega is among the rare specialists of diving watches. This watch was the Omega Seamaster and ever since, several developed versions of Seamaster have come out. James Bond also wore Seamaster in the first series of the movie. Other great and unique achievement of Omega is, that it was the first watch brand that had become an official timekeeper.
This business began when Louis Brandt bought some parts from local craftsman to make his first precision pocket watches. His business was continued by his two sons, Louis-Paul and César. They developed this business and eventually would produce higher quality merchandise. That was the important time for Omega Watches to become a product of the most sought after by people.
After they died, Omega Company was leaved to four youth. Every year, they produced Omega Watches in large quantities which were 240,000 watches and they also had hired 800 employees. These young men continue to develop their production. However, between 1975 and 1980, the company was experiencing financial problems. In 1998, Omega was taken by Swatch Group after a prolonged struggle financially. Swatch Group is the company which has sold certain brand watches.
