THE OMEGA MUSEUM: GUARDIAN OF OUR BRAND’S HISTORY
Along with some 4000 watches, the OMEGA Museum’s remarkable collection includes movements, clocks, tools, photos, engravings, posters, signs, awards and certificates in an atmosphere created by a history of more than 160 years. The displays are updated regularly.
Video description: The OMEGA Museum in Biel was the first museum to be dedicated to a single Swiss watchmaker. Located opposite the company's headquarters, the museum features items representing OMEGA's long history, from the original bench on which Louis Brandt made his first watches over 160 years ago to a NASA lunar rover and the OMEGA watches worn on the Moon. Stop-motion photography is used to bring history to life through the luxury watches worn by US President John F. Kennedy or featured in major motion pictures. To allow more people to enjoy the displays, the Biel Museum now has longer opening hours, Tuesday through Friday, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and for the first time, also on Saturday, from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.
THE MUSEUM TELLS ITS OWN STORY
