One of the more well known luxury watchmakers is definitely Omega. But they weren’t always known as Omega. Up until 1903, the company was operating as La Generale Watch Co when it was founded in 1848 under that name. Omega is also known for being NASA’s choice of watch as it (the Speedmaster) was the first watch on the Moon in 1969. The James Bond franchise is also another notable fan of the brand. With a handful of celebrities behind the watches, it’s no surprise why the classic brand is a popular choice.
