The Founder
Omega Founder.jpg

Omega – the final letter in the Greek alphabet, epitomizes the ultimate. Founded as Le Generale Watch Co in La Chaux-de-Fonds by Louis Brandt in 1848, Omega has emerged as one of the most reliable, contemporary, and highly coveted brands over the last century.


In 1879, when Brandt passed away, his sons stepped in to continue what their father started and relocated the company’s headquarters to Biel, where the manufacture is currently still based. Omega has introduced a wealth of technical innovations over the course of its history, including the world’s first wristwatch with a minute repeater in 1892. It also pioneered the co-axial escapement, a significant horological advancement that paved the way for greater mechanical efficiency. It is a mechanism that remains widely implemented in watchmaking today.
