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.
