Simply Iconic

The vintage Omega watch is a popular choice for those looking for a timeless piece of wristwear. With a history dating back almost 200 years Omega is a brand with a rich heritage and known for their precision, accuracy, and classic design. Few watch brands can boast the same level of prestige and history as Omega. Founded in 1848, Omega has been on the forefront of watchmaking, innovating new technologies and pushing the boundaries  where ever possible. Omega is also well-known for their associations with some of the world’s most prestigious events, such as the Olympic Games, the first watch on the moon, and of course, James Bond.

Throughout the 1950s and 1960s and and until around 1975 and the beginning of the quartz crisis, Omega produced some incredible movements. Any watchmaker will confirm this. It also carried a wonderful heritage, as it was one of the world’s most respected watch brands with many patents to its name. Omega was the staple classic timepiece longer than any other, known for high-quality, and its vintage watches are where its reputation was born. Many of its watches are now highly sought-after by collectors. If you’re lucky enough to acquire one, you’ll have a timeless piece that will last you for years.

Collector or Wearer

Whether you’re looking for a watch to add to your collection, or you’re simply looking for a stylish and reliable watch to wear everyday, we’d highly recommend a vintage Omega. Omega produced many watch models over the years, so we’d suggest you focus on its more popular models initially. Although Omega watches are highly collectible, some great examples can be found for as little as £1000. Even a top flight vintage Omega Constellation in 18ct gold can be found for around £3,500

To Close

Omega has produced many iconic watches, such as the Speedmaster, Seamaster and Constellation. Today, Omega is known for making luxurious and sophisticated watches that are built to last a lifetime. And while Omega watches can be inexpensive, paying a little more is definitely worth the investment.

A vintage Omega watch is the perfect addition to any wrist.
