[tps_header]Omega is a Swiss luxury watchmaker based in Biel, Switzerland. The quality of this brand proceeds it. Britain’s Royal Flying Corps and the American Army chose this brand as its official timekeepers for its combat units during WWI. NASA made a similar choice and Omega became the first watch on the Moon in 1969. It has been the official timekeeping device of the Olympic Games since 1932.[/tps_header]
Sixty years ago, in the seminal year of 1957, Omega released three wristwatches that have become collectors’ classics — the Speedmaster, the Seamaster 300, and the Railmaster. At this year’s Baselworld, the brand paied tribute to all three with special, limited anniversary editions in its so-called 1957 Trilogy.
