While there is no question that Omega watches are attractive time pieces, it is the quality of workmanship that sets them apart. In 1879, Omega was one of the first makers to switch from the time worn practice of using the assembly workshop method of making watches to the manufacture process. This allowed the company to improve its quality by gaining control of the entire production process. Omega was also a pioneer in the creation of water resistant watches in the late 1940’s.  So trusted is Omega’s quality that they were chosen by NASA as the “official” wrist watch for every Apollo lunar mission.  Today the Omega Seamaster diver’s watch even has a pressure relief valve to allow helium built up during extended periods in a mini submarine or diving bell to be released upon return to the surface. Omega’s new co-axial escapement technology represents a quantum leap in watch manufacturing technology by allowing a watch to function indefinitely without the need for lubrication. Despite being taken over by trendy manufacturer Swatch in 1998, Omega maintains its traditional focus on classic timepieces crafted with impeccable quality.
