Omega History: The watch making firm Omega was found in 1848 by Louis Brandt in La Chaux-de-Fonds. In 1880, it moved to its current location in Bienne, Switzerland. At the beginning, the company was not referred to as Omega. The name was later christened in 1894. Today, Omegas are one of the world’s better known watches and they have been the official timekeepers for the Olympic Games, since 1932. They have also been supplying American and Russian astronauts with their “moon watch” since 1965 and 1975 respectively. The firm has been a member of the Swatch Group since 1983.
