More gorgeous vintage Omega watches in glorious HD than you can handle, all with stories

These watches were all presented by the Omega Museum Director, the magical Petros Protopapas, at an event called ‘The Night of Omega Firsts’ presented by Time and Tide Watches. It was held at Vue de Monde in Melbourne, Australia, and in it, 12 irreplaceable Omega watches were unveiled and explained.

The watches represented a wide collection of Omega ‘firsts’. The first Omega dive watch. The first Omega wristwatch sized tourbillon. The first stopwatch they developed for the LA Olympic Games in ’32. The first timepiece to carry the ‘Omega’ calibre that later gave the company its name. Over 100 years of Omega history in one room; rare pieces, super rare pieces and unique, prototype pieces.

What about the Bond Seamaster? Since Omega basically funded the whole 007 movie franchise it should at least get a mention. And Prince William wears one.

William Wong says:

Awesome video!

Melchizedek Phuah Siow Jin says:

Thanks for the video. Learnt more stuff about such a wonderful brand.

Thomas Moll says:

Nice video and interesting storytelling. Thanks! In contrast, the event looks almost ridiculously mundane… Are the common folks in AUS going to be able to see these watches, too?

Shipmate says:

Enough with the re-issues. Do something original… Like Grand Seiko spring drive or ceramic bezel or hardened submarine steel

Albert Anthony June Arboleda says:

Awesome!! No wonder why OMEGA is one of the most respected watch brands in the world. PATEK PHILIPPE, JAEGER-LECOULTRE, GIRARD PERREGAUX, SEIKO(GS & CREDOR) and OMEGA for me are the HOLY TRINITY of watchmaking.

Ayyye, HD !

Preeyen Mistry says:

Loved the video and the history behind each watch but my god who tf edits these videos, every single video the music is too loud compared to the vocals. It should accompany the voices not drown them out causing the viewer to focus to hear the words. You can do it for free with audacity so please sort this out.

No 1957 Railmaster?
