Selling Omega Watches in Glasgow: McTear's Specialist Auctions  It is estimated that over two thirds of the world’s population are aware of the Omega brand. With a one hundred and sixty year history and still thriving as one of the world’s most successful timepiece manufacturers, Omega watches are more popular than ever at auction, achieving record auction prices at McTear’s this year.


Beginning in 1848, Omega watches have been witness to many significant historical events, as well being chosen to keep time at them. In 1909 Omega was responsible for keeping time at the Gordon-Bennet International ballooning race and in 1932 they were awarded the same responsibility at the Olympics. Omega are credited with some of the most important advances in timekeeping and this reputation and distinctive style has led to them being worn by some of the most famous people and in some very interesting situations. For example, the Omega Speedmaster passed eleven tests by NASA and was the first and only watch on the moon in 1969.


McTear’s sells Omega timepieces in every specialist watches auction, if you have one that you wish to consign or to have valued then please contact watches specialist Benjamin Bailey benjamin@mctears.co.uk 0141 810 2880 or pop in to our salerooms weekdays office hours.
