A Short History of Omega

23 year old Louis Brandt was the man who is the founder of Omega watches. In 1848, he was just an assembler of different parts required for pocket watch. But his precision and experience with pocket watches brought him to be famous in England, Italy and Scandinavia. He was a self motivated person who wants to set a pioneer image with quality and innovative design. In 1879 when he passed away his two sons Louis-Paul, and Cesar took the charge of the business and in the mean while they have started to face some quality issues. To tackle the situation they close down the assembly workshop and proceed with new manufacturing unit. This proved a great decision later. In 1889, they were working with the workforce of 600 and had already produced 100000 watches. In 1896, the firm got an award of a gold medal on its pocket watch representation. Company was renamed in 1903 when both owners die, with the name of S.A Louis Brandt & Frere Omega Watch Co. First World War also affected the company and Omega faces many financial problems. After this in 1930 a new group named SSIH came into existence in the result of merging Omega and Tissot. In the mid of 1970s, SSIH was the leading company of watch-making in Switzerland.
In 1903, on the company banker’s suggestion the name “Omega” was selected and adopted for all watches made by company and now a day the Omega watch is one of the most popular brands and according to a research seven out of ten people are heard or familiar with the brand Omega.
