Formerly known as the La Generale Watch Co., Louis Brandt founded it in La Chaux-de-Fonds in 1848. In 1903, they renamed their company Omega until 1982, when they officially changed their name to Omega SA. They are today part of the Swiss Swatch Group.
The Omega Equinoxe was the World’s first watch with an analogue display on one side, and an LCD display on the other. Its design cues come from the Jaeger-Lecoultre Reverso and Audemars Piguet Royal Oak with their case and bracelet designs catching the public's imagination at that time.
A 27mm stainless steel case with a lug to lug length of 38mm and a thickness of 9mm ensures a comfortable fit on the wrist. Its bevelled corners and screws at each corner add a style of its own. On one side it has a ridged pattern with a single push button to adjust the time. Slide the watch to the right and it flips from a two-hand dial with applied batons marking the hours to a multifunction quartz dial with time, countdown timer, 24-hour alarm, chronograph and an hourly signal beep. On the reverse, a screwed-down case back with “Equinoxe” engraved into it. Inside an Omega Quartz multi-functional Cal.1655. The watch comes fitted with its original Omega stainless steel bracelet with a signed push-button hidden clasp. Comes with its original Omega presentation box and guarantee.
