Formerly known as the La Generale Watch Co. it was founded by Louis Brandt in La Chaux-de-Fonds in 1848. In 1903 they renamed the company Omega until 1982 when they officially changed their name to Omega SA. They are part of the Swiss Swatch Group. Celebrating Omega’s maritime and dive heritage, in 1957 Omega introduced the 300 Seamaster series created for the professional diver.

Points of Mention
This watch is sold with its original Omega box and original Omega paperwork, as photographed. The watch comes paired on its original titanium bracelet with signed folding clasp. The watch is from August 2015 and is sold in worn condition. Overall, however, the watch is in very good condition as you can see from the photos with some signs of scratches on the high polished areas. The watch comes with our 12-Months NON-Waterproof Warranty.
I can never get over how light titanium is and especially when it is so beautifully finished how Omega does, you really think it's steel upon sight and then after picking it up and handling the watch you immediately notice the weight. The colour choice on this reference is what makes it to me, that against the slightly more grey tone of the metal.
