In 1848, the 23 year old Louis Brandt established the forerunner of Omega in La Chaux-de-Fonds in Switzerland. The headquarters of Omega is today located in Biel/Bienne in Switzerland, and Omega is wholly owned by Swatch Group.
The name Omega is derived from the last letter in the Greek alphabet called Omega (Ω). Since ancient times, Omega (Ω) has been a symbol of mysticism and spirituality.
Omega’s accomplishments are many and impressive
Omega is the nr 1 pioneering brand that has pushed the boundaries of both technology and human history. Omega has travelled to the Moon and to the bottom of the ocean! Omega has travelled farther and deeper than any luxury watch brand!
Omega is famous for its “Moon Watch” – the Omega Speedmaster, and its diverse and excellent divers watch collections – the Omega Seamaster.
Omega is also famous for its highly accurate and reliable movements that are fully comparable to those made by Rolex.
Omega is furthermore famous for using Co-Axial movements, and Omega has been the official timekeeper of James Bond 007 since Pierce Brosnan’s debut as James Bond in GoldenEye (1995). Even as we speak, Omega is still the official timekeeper of the James Bond franchise.
As far as ranking is concerned, Omega belongs to the top 10 luxury wristwatch manufacturers and brands in the world – without question. It’s successful worldwide and Omega is available at several retailers around the world. It’s said that Omega enjoys a 70% global brand recognition.
About Omega Seamaster Diver 300m:
Omega Seamaster Diver 300m/Omega Seamaster Professional 300m is the classic Seamaster which is Omega’s very first divers watch. Omega Seamaster Professional dates back to the 1950s. It’s the oldest of all the Seamaster collections.
Even though the Omega Seamaster Professional has undergone several aesthetic changes since the 1950s, the Seamaster Professional Collection can trace its origins back to the 1950s.
The Omega Seamaster made its debut in 1948 as a water resistant sports and dress watch, but it wasn’t until 1957, that Omega Seamaster became known to the world as Omega’s legendary divers watch.
The new 2018 version of the Omega Seamaster Diver 300m/Omega Seamaster Professional
The wave dial is back, the helium escape valve is still positioned at ten o’clock, the bracelet has screws instead of pins, Omega relies on a new in-house calibre called 8800, with a 55 hour power reserve, and beats at 25,200 vph.
Omega’s modern and updated movements are more accurate and precise than the previous generations and therefore more reliable. The new 8800 in-house Omega calibre is anti-magnetic to 15,000 gauss.
The chronograph version uses the 9900 in-house Omega calibre, which has a 60 hour power reserve, beats at 25,200 vph, and is also anti-magnetic to 15,000 gauss.
The main competitor of Rolex Submariner
Ever since 1957, the Omega Seamaster has been the official competitor of Rolex’s champion – the Rolex Submariner. Since that year, Omega and Rolex have been in fierce competition over who has got the best divers watch to offer the market.
Never in the history of watchmaking, have to brands and two specific watches been in such fierce competition as the Omega Seamaster Professional and the Rolex Submariner. The eternal question – Omega Seamaster Professional VS Rolex Submariner is perhaps the most saturated question in the history of watchmaking.
Omega Seamaster Professional is a hardy, robust, well built, versatile, elegant and reliable tool-, sports-, dress-, and divers watch all in one. You can never go wrong with an Omega Seamaster Professional.
The Famous Omega Helium Valve Positioned at Ten O’Clock:
A common question is what the safety valve/helium valve positioned at ten o’clock is used for. This helium valve is used for deep sea diving and prevents overpressure in the watch. The feature is fully functional but isn’t used for ordinary amateur diving down to a depth of 30 meters. You unscrew it to open it and screw it back to seal it. Only use it on dry land – never under water.
James Bond 007:
The Omega Seamaster Professional has been the official timekeeper of the suave, sophisticated and secret British agent James Bond 007, ever since Pierce Brosnan debuted as James Bond in GoldenEye in 1995. It has also been the official timekeeper of the present-day Bond actor Daniel Craig, even though it seems that Omega Planet Ocean and Omega Aqua Terra have quite recently taken over the role as being James Bond’s official timekeeper.
To all James Bond fans:
The old or original Omega Seamaster Professionals – the ones worn by Pierce Brosnan in the 1990s and the early 2000s – GoldenEye (1995), Tomorrow Never Dies (1997), The World Is Not Enough (1999), and Die Another Day (2002), and the Omega Seamaster 300M Co-Axial reference number 2220.80.00 – the particular Omega watch worn by Daniel Craig in Casino Royale (2006) – are no longer in production.
The modern Omega Seamaster Professionals currently offered, were never used in the Daniel Craig Bond movies, except for the Omega Seamaster Diver 300m ref. (reference number) 126.96.36.199.01.001. which was worn by Bond actor Daniel Craig in the latest Bond movie No Time To Die (2021).
