When it comes to classic and timeless Swiss watches, Omega is definitely on the top rankings of that list. It originally operated as La Generale Watch Co before incorporating the name Omega in 1903. What makes it a brand worth keeping for generations is largely due to the part it plays in important historical moments, especially being the first watch to land on the moon alongside NASA in 1969. Omega also has a long-standing history with the Olympic Games, being its official watch partner since 1932.

And of course, who could forget about everyone’s favourite 007 donning an Omega watch in the past two decades? But enough of the history lesson — let’s get on with the mechanics behind the timepiece.

Omega is known for its co-axial movements, which makes it beneficial for its sporty chronographs as well as diving watches. Over the years, Omega has time and time again produced many timeless pieces, especially for its Speedmaster and Seamaster collections. Other notable collections from Omega includes the Constellation, De Ville, and Specialties.

What’s great about the Swiss watch legend is its ability to suit your every need. Each and every Omega collection is made for a specific occasion. If you’re looking for something sportier, the Speedmaster and Seamaster series is the right choice. For something with a touch of class and panache, opt for the Constellation or De Ville pieces.
