    Omega is a Swiss watch manufacturer that is widely regarded as the market leader for performance and durability. Since its founding in 1848, the Omega watch has recorded time for the Olympic Games, aided Britain's Royal Air Force in World War II, travelled to the moon on Buzz Aldrin's wrist, and accompanied James Bond on his film adventures. Before centralized time, Omega even ensured strict timetables for American railroads. The watch is not only recognized for its precision, but also for its sleek, mechanical appearance. World leaders such as Pope John Paul II and John F. Kennedy have chosen the Omega de Ville "Classic" watch, perpetuating the brand's worldwide reputation for forward-looking luxury. Continually reinventing its technology, the Omega watch is both classic and futuristic.
