In 1848, in a small Swiss village of La Chaux-de-Fonds, the young watchmaker Louis Brandt established his first little workshop that tailored the magical legacy of OMEGA watches. The passionate youngster poured his skills and excellence into crafting precision-specific timepieces of high quality that quickly caught the goodwill of watch connoisseurs outside of Switzerland across Europe. After the founder’s demise, the baton of watchmaking and ownership was soon transferred to his sons- Louis-Paul and César, in 1879.
The duo continued to grow large and expanded to the busy town of Biel/Bienne and then to 96 Rue Jakob-Stampfli in 1880, the ‘residential address’ of OMEGA. Soon, they introduced the first-series produced calibre called the ‘Labrador,’ which resulted from the technological genius and precision timing that revolutionised the watchmaking industry. With extraordinary feats like the minute-repeater, Omega caught on to the admiration and attention of many watch collectors and enthusiasts, especially men.
Soon, in 1894, Omega released a new calibre with new standard movements, releasing the first automatic movement watches in 1931. Omega was the first watchmaker to time the Olympic Games in Los Angeles in 1932.
