Famous for being the first watch on the moon, Omega has been chosen by NASA, the military and the Olympics as their official timekeeping device of choice. James Bond has been wearing Omega watches with pride in his films since 1955, among many other celebrities who have worn the brand, including John F Kennedy, Buzz Aldrin, George Clooney and Prince William.
