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. The Omega Speedmaster Triple Calendar was first introduced in 1993. In 2018 Hodinkee celebrated its 10th Anniversary with the introduction of the Omega Speedmaster HODINKEE 10th Anniversary Limited edition of 500 pieces. It looks very similar though it doesn’t have the triple date.
