All About Omega: The 411 on Your Favourite (And Ours, Too!)

One of the most frustrating parts about the world of fashion? Some people erroneously believe that only women deserve to feel beautiful. We find that there is a certain amount of social stigma associated with a man who cares “too much” about his looks. We could not disagree more with this sentiment - when you look good, you feel good. This principle, in our opinions, is absolutely universal.

Skipping right over the wonderful world of engagement rings, cufflinks, and other types of fashion jewellery designed to make a man feel like a man, we find that the art of creating the perfect timepiece for work, play, and everything in between to be one of the most challenging endeavors a brand can take upon its back. This is where Omega Watches enters the scene. As a legacy nearly two hundred years in the making, we find ourselves enamoured with their wares time and time again.

From Humble Beginnings to Greatness

Founded in 1848, Omega Watches is a company that has withstood the test of time. Its founding father, Louis Brandt, was a simple watchmaker before bringing his vision to life. Crafting his products locally and artisanally, the quality he was able to achieve consistently was later bolstered by his two sons, Louis-Paul and Cesar, and their ingenuity in advancing the means by which the watches were made. Their newly-efficient production line enabled them to become the veritable powerhouse they are today. They had found their footing as a superpower in the industry by the turn of the century, where they staked their claim in history and officially began branding themselves as Omega.

After the death of Louis and Cesar themselves, the reins were passed down to four young and hungry successors. Following in the footsteps of the brothers who had revolutionized the watch industry as it existed at the time, Omega grew rapidly, eventually even surpassing Rolex, their most powerful rival, becoming the king of Swiss watchmaking. They had earned their reputation worldwide both in the areas of aesthetic excellence as well as mechanical superiority.

Romance is never hard to come by with Omega.
