OMEGA - A Journey through Time

When you first pick up a copy of OMEGA – A Journey through Time (and you will definitely need both hands), you will be impressed by its weight and its substance. But for a brand like OMEGA, with a history of more than 160 years, a lighter volume clearly wouldn’t do.

With its 832 pages and 6,625 illustrations (70 per cent of which are in four-colour printing and most of which are being published for the first time), this is one of the most comprehensive works ever published about a watch brand. Devoted entirely to the evolution of its models, from the late nineteenth century to the present day, it is brought to life with reproductions of numerous advertisements that echo the watches shown and lend them the colour, feel and flavour of their time. The book is intended for OMEGA aficionados, who will undoubtedly find in it their preferred models. Prefaced by Nicolas G. Hayek and written and designed by Marco Richon, former curator of the Omega Museum, it is organised like a “structured catalogue”, divided into twelve chapters, preceded by a brief history of the company and followed by a complete list of calibres, namely:
