ocean heritage

a story that began in 1932

This four-part series outlines OMEGA's ocean story starting with oceanographer William Beebe. Since the very beginning, OMEGA watches have accompanied countless explorers, scientists and adventurers. This series attempts to cover the iconic characters and timepieces over this 90 year history by mixing archive footage with museum pieces filmed at OMEGA's HQ in Switzerland.
