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 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.
With a water resistance of 1,200 meters/3,940 feet, the Omega Seamaster Ploprof is the most extreme divers watch that Omega can offer you today.
In 1970, the legendary French naval officer, Commander, oceanographer, scientist, photographer and movie maker Jacques Cousteau requested a divers watch. Omega created the Seamaster 600 – Plongeur Professionnel (PLOPROF). That year, this watch won the record for deep-sea diving – another accomplishment of the Omega brand!
PLOPROF is derived from PLOngeur PROFessionnel. Plongeur Professionnel means Professional Diver in French.
Even though Omega Seamaster Ploprof uses the same 8500 Co-Axial Caliber as Omega Planet Ocean and Omega Aqua Terra, Ploprof isn’t an ideal watch for daily use.
Being an extreme divers watch, of quite massive proportions, built in stainless steel, this watch is primarily meant to be a tool watch or a professional divers watch, and not a watch meant for daily wear, even though there are undoubtedly people that do wear them anyway on a daily basis.
