Monochrome Watches
An online magazine dedicated to fine watches


Founded in 1848, Omega won countless precision trials and established itself as one of the most solid and celebrated names in watchmaking. From the headline-grabbing Moon landing of the Speedmaster in 1969 to Omega’s role as the official Olympic timekeeper (starting in 1932), from James Bond to George Daniel’s breakthrough co-axial escapement, few brands can rival Omega’s illustrious history and ongoing appeal.  In 2015 Omega implemented the Master Chronometer certification. Approved by METAS, it tests water-resistance, precision and magnetic-resistance to 15,000 gauss, far above industry standards. Omega is part of the Swatch Group.
