How Many Watches Does Omega Produce Per Year?

Omega is undoubtedly one of the biggest – and most prestigious – watch brands in the world. The long-running company is known for making the first watch that went to the moon. They’re also known for being the official timekeeper for the Olympic games. You don’t earn these accolades without creating an exceptional product.

The precision and quality of Omega continue to impress to this day. With this level of quality, it’s natural to wonder how many watches the company is able to produce each year. The number may surprise you. In today’s article, we’ll talk about Omega’s yearly production numbers.

Omega Watch Production Numbers

Omega is one of the largest luxury watchmakers in the world. When compared to other names in the industry, Omega is almost at the top of the list. In fact, Rolex may be the only major watchmaker that can beat them in both sales and the number of watches produced. 

While competitors like Longines may produce more watches than Omega, they don’t manage to create the same level of value. Omega can produce fewer watches and make more sales. However, Rolex could be considered a more direct competitor, since it isn’t part of the Swatch group like Longines and Omega. Patek Philippe is another independent watchmaker that competes with Omega, though they produce far fewer watches per year, only making around 60,000. Omega also offers a more diverse selection of watches.

Omega is estimated to produce about half a million total watches per year. This number is especially impressive, considering the fact that you can count on every Omega watch to be high-quality and precise. As part of the Swatch Group, Omega has the resources and capabilities to produce an incredible number of watches each year.

Growing in Value, Growing in Market Share

In addition to producing an impressive number of watches, Omega has consistently grown its value and market share over the years. Once again, Omega is only second to the world-renowned Rolex when it comes to value and sales numbers.

Part of Omega’s power is the diverse range of watches they offer customers. You can find Omega watches for just about every style. Omega also offers its watches at a wide range of prices, making them more accessible than some other luxury brands. Those factors – combined with Omega’s legacy, attention to detail, and precision – make it one of the best-selling luxury watch brands in the world.


What Is the Most Popular Omega Model?

If you’re a fan of Omega watches and want to add one to your collection, you may be wondering where you should start in their vast and varied catalogue. You can always start with their most well-known and popular model, which is the Omega Speedmaster. The Omega Speedmaster comes in a variety of styles, sizes, and price ranges. It also utilises a classic design, making it as stylish as it is timeless.

Plus, there’s the legacy and prestige of the Speedmaster. The aforementioned first watch to go to the moon was an Omega Speedmaster. Who wouldn’t want to own a watch with a history like that? There are many choices when it comes to the Speedmaster, so you really can’t go wrong with any of them.

If the Speedmaster isn’t your style, Omega has you covered with plenty of other options. There are popular choices like the Seamaster, which is Omega’s famous diving watch. You could also go dressier and choose something like the DeVille, which utilises luxury materials in an elegant design. Another wildly popular model is the Constellation which has a unique case back with a Geneva Observatory medallion.

No matter which Omega you pick, it’s sure to be one you cherish.

What Is the Most Valuable Omega Watch Ever Sold?

Of course, as one of the most beloved luxury watch brands in the world, there are plenty of collectors out there who want to get their hands on some of Omega’s rarer offerings. In fact, Omega watches have gone at auction for millions of dollars. The most valuable Omega watch ever sold was an Omega Speedmaster Broad Arrow Ref. 2915-1. 

This Omega watch from 1957 was sold at auction in 2021. It blew the previous record out of the water by selling for $3.4 million USD at the Phillips Auction in Geneva. Of course, you don’t need to spend nearly that much to obtain an Omega watch when you shop at BQ Watches.
