OMEGA WATCHMAKING: A COMMITMENT TO INNOVATION AND QUALITY
From OMEGA’s beginnings, our timepieces have recorded some of the most significant moments in the world (and beyond). They have been worn by presidents and kings, astronauts and spies, movie stars and you. Behind each one is a legacy of horological quality and innovation.
OMEGA QUALITY: 7 DEFINING CORNERSTONES

7.METAS CERTIFICATION: A NEW QUALITY STANDARD
A METAS-certified watch has passed a battery of tests. It’s ready for your life.
The Master Chronometer Certification
OMEGA has built its reputation on revolutionary watch movements. And the Master Chronometer watches, which earn that designation by passing tests approved by the Swiss Federal Institute of Metrology, put our COSC-certified chronometer calibres in the spotlight once again.
THE MATERIAL DIFFERENCE
OMEGA’s creative use of materials and its creation of new alloys enhance our watches’ aesthetic appeal and improve their quality. Innovative uses of ceramics, silicon and precious metals are important parts of our story.
