Omega has a rich and interesting history. Apart from its regular collections, the Bienne-based brand made watches for the military, sporting events, chronometer trials and even for use in space - the famous Speedmaster. In recent years it has invested heavily in its in-house movement production, with stunning 8500, 9300 and derivative calibers as a result.
