Battle of the Brands: Omega vs. Breitling

Breitling is a brand of Swiss Watches produced by privately owned Breitling SA (originally founded by Léon Breitling in 1884). The watchmaker offers high-end Certified Chronometers designed primarily for aviation use. Breitling’s watches offer aviation functions, though their chronograph functions have become more of status symbols than practically applied tools. Notable models include the Super Avenger, the Emergency, the Chrono Avenger, Super Ocean and the Navitimer. Celebrity endorsers of the brand have included high-profile celebrities like Leonardo DiCaprio, Brad Pitt, John Travolta and, currently, Wayne Gretzky. Other noted fans of the brand include Man vs. Wild star- Bear Grylls and the Bentley automobile brand- demonstrating Breitling’s dual nature as both functional timepiece and emblem of status & luxury.

Omega is a Swiss luxury watchmaker based in Biel, Switzerland and owned by the Swatch Group (originally founded in1848 by Louis Brandt). Omega is one of the most known and recognized watches in the world. Notable series of models for women & men include the Seamaster, Speedmaster, Constellation and Deville. Omega is the choice watch for NASA and was worn by Buzz Aldrin as the first watch on the Moon in 1969. At the 2006 Olympic Summer Games, Omega was the official Time Keeping device (Swimmer Michael Phelps endorses the brand). Starting in 1995, James Bond switched from Rolex to Omega Watches (today, Bond star Daniel Craig acts as a brand ambassador for the watch company). Other famous Omega wearers (past and present) are JFK, Prince William, VP Joe Biden, George Clooney, Nicole Kidman and Cindy Crawford. We’ve also noted such celebrity Omega fans as Sofia Vergara, and Minka Kelly on the eRelyx blog.
