Omega is not only defined by being the first watch on the moon, or the watch of choice for Mr. James Bond, but foremost for the production of highly precise and durable time-pieces. This is largely attributed to their 160 year heritage in which Omega managed to engineer their watches to be suitable for the harshest environments ranging from the deep sea, space, and high impact sports. As a result of this long heritage, Omega’s timepieces have also become one of watch enthusiasts and collectors most sought after items.Overhaul is recommended at the buyer’s expense. Long-term precision and regularity cannot be guaranteed. Size and weight may deviate from the manufacturer’s indication. All watches are hand-measured and weighed.
