History of Omega and Speedmaster
Omega was founded in 1848 by Louis Brandt at the age of 23. The brand's reputation grew rapidly, and by 1895 the watches achieved a precision of 30 seconds a day.
By the turn of the 20th century, Omega was one of Switzerland's largest watch manufacturers, producing 240,000 watches annually and employing 800 people.
Omega made its sports debut in the Gordon Bennett international ballooning competition in 1917; since then, Omega has been the official timekeeper at 21 Olympic Games.
In 1936, Omega set an impressive world precision record of 97.8 points at the Kew-Teddington observatory in England.
In 1957, with motorsport in mind, Omega launched the Speedmaster, which was chosen as NASA's official chronometer in space in 1965. Four years later, the Moonwatch was the first watch to be worn on the moon when, on 21st July 1969, Neil Armstrong took his giant leap for mankind.
This Omega Speedmaster vintage watch not only resonates with history but is also an investment. With vintage sports watches, especially the Omega Speedmaster range, gaining popularity, now is the perfect opportunity to add or start your collection.
