Part I

Back in April, a nice oversized Omega “De Bord” Chronometer pocket watch showed up for sale on eBay. It probably lasted only a few minutes before it went off the radar screen, thus, for the most, it remained unnoticed. The description didn’t help much either.

Trying to explain “what really is Omega”, its no easy task. But it could unveil in the form of many things… definitely more then James Bond and Man on the Moon. With little exception, wherever you look at, trying to document yourself about Omega’s history, every piece of article will start with a reverence for what dictionary will return for “Omega”, […]
