Essay

Established in 1848 in La Chaux-de-Fonds, Switzerland, by Louis Brandt, La Generale Watch Co. served as the precursor to Omega. Louis Brandt initially crafted precision pocket watches by assembling components provided by local craftsmen. Due to the remarkable success of the Omega brand, La Generale Watch Co. decided to separate Omega into its own entity in 1903, officially founding the Omega Watch Co. in the same year.
