Omega water resistance - Repairsbypost

Is my Omega watch water resistant?

Water damage can be devastating to Omega watch enthusiasts. Here at Repairs by Post we are expertly trained to fix problems caused by water damage or exposure.

Each Omega watch is water-resistant as standard. This is assured by a series of seals in the watch. As the watch is worn daily, these seals come under natural stress, which may affect the watches ability to withstand water. Omega recommends that your watch is checked once a year by a watch repair specialist who will check for water-resistance and remedy any failing seals.

History of Omega watches

The brand was founded in La Chaux-de-Fonds in 1848 by 23-year-old Louis Brandt who initially assembled key-wound watches from parts supplied by local craftsmen. He then sold these watches throughout Europe.

1879

After Louis Brandt passed away, his children took over control of manufacturing. They were unsatisfied with the current workshop system and found the quality questionable.

1880

The company moved to Bienne, a city that offered greater communication and manpower than La Chaux-de-Fonds. The factory was at first small, but the brothers were able to purchase the entire building by December of that year.

1882

The company moved to a converted-spinning factory located in Gurzelen, where the headquarters remain today.

1894

The brothers created their now-famous Labrador, Gurzelen and the Omega calibre, which all helped lead the brand to success.

1903

Both Louis-Paul and Cesar Brandt died in 1903 leaving the large company with 800 employees in the hands of 23-year-old Paul-Emile Brandt. He was a significant influence for the brand, and his style was notable throughout the designs over the next 50 years.

1925

Due to the economic difficulties caused by World War 1, Pual-Emile worked towards creating a union between Omega and Tissot.

1930

Following this union, the brand merged in 1930 within the SSIH group (Société Suisse pour l’Industrie Horlogére) which would go on to become Swatch.

The 1950’S

The brand continued to grow under the leadership of Joseph Reiser. The SSIH group would create at least fifty companies. Omega brought the first electronic timekeeping device to the Helsinki Olympic Games in 1952.

1965

Because of its well-deserved reputation for precision and reliability, the Omega Speedmaster was chosen by NASA as its official chronometer in 1965.

1970

By the 70s SSIH had become Switzerland’s number one producer of finished watches and number three in the world.

1994

Omega has continued to build on its reputation for innovation and created the world’s first self-winding tourbillon wristwatch in 1994. A self-winding Omega watch is powered by the wrist movement of the wearer. When fully wound, the watch will have a power reserve between 44 and 60 hours. Typically a watch owner who wears their Omega for 10-12 hours will power their watch enough so that it continues to run throughout the night. Omega recommends that if your watch has not been worn for a few days, then it should be wound manually. If you have concerns about the way your Omega watch is keeping time, send it to the expert watch repair service – Repairs by Post.

2016

Today Omega continues to innovate and explore the future of horology. They are a socially responsible company who is a member of the non-profit Responsible Jewellery Council, whose aim is to develop an ethical code of practice throughout the jewellery supply chain, from mines to point-of-sale This year, Omega has been given the award of being the official timekeeper of the Rio 2016 Olympic Games.

2016

In January 2019, Omega proudly told the world that after more than 50 years, they were bringing back the Calibre 321. Using researchers, watch historians and the latest technology, they were able to scan original movements and recreate the Calibre 321, for a new generation of watch lovers to appreciate it.

When in April 2019 diver Victor Vesco broke a new world record for his dive of 10,928m, he was wearing an Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean.
