The Omega company
The manufacturer of Swiss premium watches was founded in 1848, and its creator Louis Brandt handed over the company to his two sons Louis-Paul and César in 1879 after his death. In 1894, the brothers set completely new standards in the world of watchmaking with the invention of a new calibre. They called this achievement and subsequently their brand Omega.
