As the first watch landing on the moon, Omega did not have any preparations before this, and this event can even be said to be an accident. Among the four famous watch brands including Rolex, Longines and Hamilton, the accurate fake Omega Speedmaster was the one and only collection to pass the strict tests from NASA.
Omega has two factories which are separately located in Villeret and Bienne. As Omega belongs to Swatch Group now, the watch factory is not operating independently, and many resources are shared with the group. The one in Villeret is responsible for production and assembly of the calibre 8500, and it is also responsible for the testing and certification of the Master Chronometer.
Do you the Omega with the highest auctioned price? It was a white gold case copy Omega that Elvis Presle ever wore, which was produced in 1960. It was given to him to celebrate that his global record sales achieved 75 million and there were the words of “To Elvis 75 Million Records RCA Victor” engraved on the back, that is another reason why this model is so precious.
