Why We Love it

When you think of Omega, you probably picture the Speedmaster, Seamaster, or if you’re a bit more adventurous, the Railmaster. While these pieces played significant roles in forming the watch industry of today, many of Omega’s older, classic offerings provide an exceptional look into their era, speaking to the stories and history from years past. 

Take this vintage dress piece, for example. Dating to the 1960s, this piece is preserved in exceptional, near mint condition, serving as almost a witness to a bygone era. Considered a large watch at the time, the 35mm case is perfect in a modern context.

Fashioned from 18K rose gold with matching applied faceted markers, this piece features a set of curved lugs, a rose gold ‘dauphine’ handset and a signed rose gold crown.

Powered by a beautiful Omega’s Calibre 285 manually-wound movement with exposed click spring, this is the type of watch that you cannot wear without smiling, especially when you take that small moment to rotate and wind this piece. This vintage Omega has aged so evenly while maintaining its original character and form, puts a picture in your mind of the world back when this watch first was released. 

If you’re looking for a step outside the world of iconic Omega and into the world of classic vintage styling and timeless dress watch heritage, consider this beautifully-maintained piece in near time-capsule quality. 

Brand Story

+
The story of Omega is one that captivates generations of horological devotees. The second-largest watchmaker in the world in terms of annual turnover, the Bienne-based firm has been continuously producing watches since 1848, which it does today under the auspices of the Swatch Group.

Founded in La-Chaux-de-Fonds, Switzerland as La Generale Watch Co, Omega was well ahead of the horological curve from the beginning, developing the first minute-repeating wristwatch in 1892 as well as the eponymous “Omega” caliber in 1894. This 19-ligne movement was revolutionary in that its parts could be replaced by any watchmaker in the world without modification, while its winding and time-setting via the crown provided an industry standard.

Omega became the timepiece supplier of choice for the British Royal Flying Corps in 1917, while the Americans followed suit in 1918, choosing their watches for the U.S. Army. Awards for precision chronometry became almost commonplace, while 1932 saw them become the first watch brand to time an entire Olympic Games. Their Marine, which debuted the same year, is regarded as the first commercially available diver’s watch.

During the Second World War, Omega supplied well over 100,000 timepieces to British forces, making it the largest watch supplier to the British and her allies. These watches, from the unique 6B/159 to the famed “Dirty Dozen” W.W.W, remain highly collectible today.

1948 saw the launch of the original Seamaster: Built upon the tool watch legacy of the brand’s timepieces from the War, it’s since become a byword for reliability and legibility, both as a dress watch and, more recently, as a serious diver’s tool. The Speedmaster, released in 1957 and originally marketed for the auto-racing market, first rocketed to space on the wrist of American astronaut Wally Schirra in 1962. However, it became a household name when, in 1969, it accompanied Buzz Aldrin on the Moon, and later helped save the space-stranded crew of Apollo 13 in 1970 by timing a critical rocket burn.

Today, Omega’s watches — all of which feature in-house movements — run the gamut from svelte dress pieces to the venerable Speedmaster in all its guises. Providing an unquestionable value proposition, Omega is a brand that deserves to be at the center of every serious watch lover’s collection.
