Omega as time goes by
In 2019, Omega reopened its museum within “La Cité du Temps” in Bienne, Switzerland. Designed by award-winning architect Shigeru Ban, the entirely renovated and updated building houses the expertise of one of the most prestigious Swiss watchmaking companies.
Omega has robustly stood the test of time over successive decades and changing eras. Witness the fact that its founding dates back to the mid-19th century and that its history features remarkable events that remain firmly embedded in the collective memory. The entire history of the Manufacture can be found in this museum, where visitors enjoy a chance to discover and recall in an entertaining manner. This place mingling tradition and innovation presents the complete heritage of the Maison, from the very first moments of its creation with the opening of the small workshop of watchmaker Louis Brandt in the Swiss village of La Chaux-de-Fonds in 1848, all the way to the world record set in 2019 by the Seamaster Planet Ocean “Ultra Deep” in plunging to a depth of 10,928 meters.
