Hand-picked Omega Vintage TimepiecesOmega has grown to be one of the world’s most well-known and beloved watch brands. From its Seamaster watches that have made diving records, to its Speedmaster watches that have gone into Space as part of the NASA program, or the various Constellation and De Ville models – Omega stands for heritage, innovation, and top quality.
The Omega Seamaster comes in a variety of models, dating all the way back to 1948. It is loosely based on the watches Omega designed for the British military at the end of World War II.
Dating back to 1952, the Omega Constellation watch was once the flagship in the Omega collection. Its production came about after Omega’s limited-edition Omega Centenary collection launched in 1948.
The Speedmaster launched in 1957 as a sport and racing chronograph. The tachymeter ring that encircles the dial inspired the use of the word “Speed” in its name. The first Speedmaster bore the name “broad arrow” after its hour hand.
Launched in 1960 as part of the larger Seamaster series, the goal of the De Ville was to offer an elegant alternative to sporty models.
5 Reasons for Vintage
Exclusive watches, that only a few wearReason Nr. 1
Nowadays, many high-quality watches are mass-produced. Vintage watches were often made in very small series with skilled craftsmanship instead of robots.
Quality that endures generationsReason Nr. 2
In earlier eras, watches were designed to last forever, including the components. There is no such thing as obsolescence. That is what we consider quality at Zurichberg.
Polarizing and characteristic designsReason Nr. 3
Today, very few watch manufacturers can afford to launch polarising products and therefore produce watches that are aesthetically pleasing to all.
Value for MoneyCustomer
Vintage watches are overall cheaper than new watches. This is because new watches fulfill an essential financial purpose for the producers, whereas vintage watches are financially "depreciated", so to speak.
Longevity that feels greatReason Nr. 5
We believe that in order to move towards a more sustainable future, it is absolutely necessary and logical to develop a sense for the quality of the past and to reuse products instead of producing new ones.
We curate our watches based on their aesthetics, history and art-historical context and thus want to offer an alternative to pure brand affinity.
