MILITARY PRECISION

In 1940, OMEGA was commissioned as the single largest supplier of watches for the British armed forces and its allies. To meet the volume and precision requirements of the order, OMEGA had to fast-track its advances in water-resistant, shockproof and antimagnetic watches through industrialisation. Amidst the uncompromising conditions of the front lines, OMEGA watches went on to prove their reliability and strength.
