Omega Watch Repair and Service
The story of Omega begins in 1848, when 23-year-old Louis Brandt began to make clock and timepiece components in La Chaux-de-Fonds. After his sons Louis and Cesar joined the firm, it was renamed Louis Brandt & Fils Co. A year after its founder’s death, in 1880, it was moved to Bienne, where a watch factory was established using industrial manufacturing methods.
By 1894 the company developed a caliber for a pocket watch and named it “Omega 19.” The use of Omega (the last letter of the Greek alphabet) was meant to symbolize the achievement of the ultimate in watch technology. Omega watches are fine luxury timepieces. In order for your watch to perform correctly periodic maintenance is required. Omega recommends this be done every 3-5 years. The 2 types of service Omega requires are listed below.

Most people would be surprised to see ‘Omega’ and ‘avant-garde’ in the same sentence. The Swiss behemoth today is a model of solid, dependable good practice, with its own reliable and distinct styles, but from the mid-1960s to the late-1970s, Omega released a series of watches that were distinctly experimental and outlandish. Most of them tend not to feature in the company’s official histories, but they nevertheless command a cult following. Interest in them has grown in the last five years as, Omega fan and founder of Bamford Watch Department George Bamford suggests, “collectors’ tastes have shifted towards microniches, micro-brands, and the weird and wonderful.” And if avant-garde Omega was about anything, it was about the micro-niche.
