Beatrix Potter My First Peter Rabbit

The most prestigious watch company Omega has evolved and sought after brands in the world market. The Omega has countered at other companies who boast of delivering timepieces that last a lifetime in the market. The mind-blowing services of Omega since 15-year, has been immeasurable. There is in-disreputable service guarantee on repairs and the delivery of spare parts for its watches from the date production is indeed unmatchable. Swiss company is developed in loyalty to its high quality and creative design procedures for each time pieces.

The promising 23-year-old Louis Brandt who assembled key-wound precision pocket watches from parts supplied by local craftsmen at Switzerland in 1848. This made the origin of the Brand watch Omega. After terminated from that company, he traveled throughout Europe selling his watches from Italy to Scandinavia by way of England, his chief market place Bienne. His two sons Louis-Paul and Cesar controlled over assembly workshop system in favour of in-house manufacturing and total production control after the death of their father. Aftermath Bienne become the headqurter of Omeag and still is there. Their first series-produced calibres, Labrador and Gurzelen, as well as, the famous Omega calibre of 1894, would ensure the brand's marketing success.

It makes new history in 1903. The Omega Company was able to produce 240,000 watches annually and employing over 800 people. This ensued was truly incredible. Paul-Emile, also known as the great architect and builder of Omega, established the company as a world leader by initiating the merger between Omega and Tissot within the group SSIH, Geneva, shortly after the First World War.

By the seventies, SSIH had become Switzerland's number one producer of finished watches and number three in the world. Coming out triumphant from the 1975 recession, the two Swiss giants SSIH and ASUAG (House of brands such as Longines, Rado and Swatch) merged to form the Holding ASUAG-SSIH in 1983. Barely two years later, was the holding company taken over by Nicolas Hayek, who renamed it as SMH. In 1998, the company was christened once again as The Swatch Group.

In addition there are several features that help make a watch water-resistant. The most important is the gaskets, or 0 rings-made of rubber, nylon or Teflon which form watertight seals at the joints where the crystal, case back and crown meet the watch case. if the watch is a chronograph, the chronograph pushers will also have gaskets.

The thickness and material of the case is also a big factor in determining whether a watch can safely be worn underwater. The case must be sturdy enough to withstand pressure without caving in. In general, this means steel or titanium case or a steel case plated with gold, manufacturers say. Solid gold cases can be water resistant provided they are sufficiently thick.

NASA supplied each of the Apollo astronauts with a standard issue Omega Speed master Professional manual-wind wristwatch together with Velcro strap. The Omega Speed master Professional Chronograph was the first watch to be worn on the Moon, and is a NASA favorite. So also the glamour industry too eying Omega watches in high esteem.

In addition, Omega has often been one of the best Official timekeepers for the Olympics since the 1932 Summer Olympiad. The same tradition follows for both the 2006 Winter Olympics and 2008 Summer Olympics in Germany.
