Omega's History:

      

"Louis Brandt started researching and developing pocket watches in 1848 in La Chaux-de-Fonds, Switzerland. The quality of workmanship and attention to detail would foreshadow the watches that would later carry the Omega name.

Brandt continued making watches there until 1877, when he formed Louis Brandt & Fils company with his oldest son, Louis Paul. Louis Paul and his brother Caesaer moved the company to Bienne two years later. It remains there to this day.

Innovators in every way, the Brandt brothers were the first swiss watch makers to use the divided assembly line. Allowing quality watches to be mass-produced, this process also allowed the prices of the watches to be moderated as efficiency improved.

The company went through several name changes through the years--Louis Brandt & Frere (1891), Louis Brandt and Frere-Omega Watch Co. (1903), Omega, Louis Brandt & Frere (1947), and Omega Ltd in 1982.

Through all of this time and through all of the name changes, the pride in quality of workmanship remained in the Omega watch.
While accessible to the general public, the Omega watch has an outstanding history. Omega first mass-produced the pocket watch in 1894.

By 1902 Omega introduced the first wrist watch. Omega has been the proud official timer of no less than 21 Olympic Games. Omega watches were designated the official watch of American astronauts and Russian cosmonauts.

The Omega watch was the first watch to be worn on the moon. Neil Armstrong made that the case in 1969, and later by all Apollo crews."



Recommendations for the owner of antiquarian watches:

All Antique watches are mechanical. Many repairs will not be cheap, as most likely they will require replacement of non-standard parts (unlike most late model watches). - Antique watches should not be beaten or dropped - because repairs may be expensive.

Antique watches are generally NOT waterproof. This is because waterproofing was not in general production until the middle of the 20th century for most watches. Therefore you should protect your antique watch from exposure to moisture. - If your watch becomes wet it should be dried off quickly. Carefully open all covers and use a hair drier to blow dry the movement, dial, covers, crown. This will reduce the amount of rust.

If your watch becomes wet with any kind of salt water you should immediately immerse or spray your watch with fresh (no-salt) water to remove all the salt from the works before drying the watch completely. Any salt left in the watch will combine with moisture in the air to rust metal components of the movement, case etc.

Winding any mechanical watch tight may break the mainspring. If you can avoid it do not wind the watch hard. - When adjusting the hands of your watch, move them in a clockwise direction only. Counter-clockwise adjustments may damage the movement. - If you must adjust counter-clockwise make it for small adjustments only (i.e. for minutes, NOT hours).

Be careful and gentle when adjusting the movement speed (faster or slower). Don't make sharp movements, and don't touch other components in the movement especially the pendulum mechanism.

Every 2-3 years it is necessary to service and oil vintage watches.

IF the watch is dirty - allow the watch to run down, don't wind it again until you have it serviced by a qualified watch repair expert. Dust will absorb and remove important lubricants and cause the movement pieces to wear down.

To clean the case, dial and crystal you should use a cloth that does NOT leave fibers as these may get caught up in the movement. Check with your Watch repair expert to get an appropriate cloth.

Keep your antiques watch away from magnets. Strong magnetic fields may affect the accuracy of your watch since some vintage watches were made with iron based components in the movement.

Most Cases and Covers are fine components and will not handle abuse well. The watch should not be shaken, beaten, or stressed.

Antique watches generally experience an error of up to 5-7 minutes a day. Any accuracy of +- 5 minutes is very good.


PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING BEFORE BIDDING:
|
Vintage watches are very delicate and I package it to the highest degree to prevent damage. High altitude flights can be hard on watches due to extreme temperature changes.
This can cause the oil viscosity to decrease (gum up) and prevent a watch from ticking (the balance moving freely etc.). It may need to be oiled when it arrives regardless of its recent servicing (if applicable).

Although this is only a very slight possibility it can occasionally happen. Please bear in mind that you are buying a used watch and it will require service at some point in time.

Return policy: I guarantee you complete satisfaction with all my high quality products.

If you receive an item you did not order or if an item you ordered is received damaged or defective, I will refund you the price you paid for it or replace it with identical one. If you're not satisfied with your purchase, contact me, and it will be a pleasure to discuss with you to resolve the situation.
