Omega began its journey in La Chaux de Fonds, Switzerland from the visionary idea of Louis Brandt who decided to open a small workshop in 1848. In 1933 Omega introduced one of the most important calibers of its history: the 33.3. This manual winding movement was firstly introduced as a mono pusher in 1933 but was later readapted and used for two pushers chronographs given birth to the first water-resistant watch. The stainless steel circular case with rounded edges is simply perfect for proportions and preservation. The olive shaped pushers and the worked winding crown fit perfectly in the structure. Moving the gaze towards the dial, one is fascinated by the beauty of its composition: black color spread on the background while above it the tachometer and telemetric scales stand out together with the two subsidiary dials and the second scale in a symphony of colors.
