Omega Sucks Customer Reviews and Feedback

From Everything.Sucks

Omega SA is a Swiss luxury watchmaker based in Biel/Bienne, Switzerland. Founded by Louis Brandt in La Chaux-de-Fonds in 1848, the company formally operated as the La Generale Watch Co. until incorporating the name Omega in 1903, becoming Louis Brandt et Frère - Omega Watch & Co. In 1982, the company officially changed its name to Omega SA, which is currently a subsidiary of the Swiss Swatch Group. Omega opened its museum to the public in Biel/Bienne in January 1984.

In July 2010 Michał Kolwas posted a piece in which he talks about ¨Top 10 Overrated and Overhyped Watches¨ Many of these watches are – against the claims of some – not rare, nor are they anything special in terms of the movement and other technical features. Omega was included in this rank with The Omega Speedmaster 105.012 and 145.012 “Pre-Moon”:

Another example of false rarity claims. While the original CK 2915, CK 2998, and ST 105.002 are fairly hard to find (especially in good condition – since they were tool watches, nobody really “babied” them back then), and the ST 105.003 “Ed White” slightly easier to come by than the other three, the 105.012 and 145.012 are the most common references prior to the introduction of the cal. 861-powered ref. 145.022 “Moonwatch.” Equipped with a Lemania CH27 C12 aka Omega 321, these column-wheel chronographs were, like the previous models, marketed as a driver’s tool Chrono. Nevertheless, they were mass-made, and they’re anything but hard to find. There were many rare Speedmasters over the entire collection’s history, but these two aren’t among them. Not in the basic versions. The hype has also caused a substantial increase in cases of forgery of desirable features, notably faded bezels. The ones that have faded to a greyish blue are the most common. Also, the availability of replacement dials and bezels made it all too easy to turn a common Speedmaster 145.022 into a “transitional” version with the dial of a 145.012 (applied logo, pre-1969 Omega font), or into a version with the “desirable” DON (Dot Over Ninety) bezel, by replacing the DNN (Dot Next to Ninety) with the DON insert. Readily available telemeter and pulsometer bezels, far less common than the tachymeter scale bezel, leave even more options for the forgers, for whom it’s all too easy to turn a Speedmaster with a standard tachymeter into a “rare” pulsometer or telemeter. Not to mention, that Omega’s policy of charging money for an extract of the archives makes the buyers unwilling to have Omega check the authenticity of the watch (often the bezel type is featured in the archive entries for Speedmasters). Collecting vintage Speedmaster, especially the pre-1969 models, became rather dangerous. Even for seasoned collectors who did the necessary research.

Mortgage Loan Originator (Former Employee) says

"I look bad in front of my clients now... I don’t care how desperate you are for a job, the other 99% of mortgage companies will be a better fit for you. Management is disrespectful with a low IQ. If you don’t believe sit just once with the owner and you’ll know what I’m talking about. Cons: No Money, No Organization, Not a good place to be"

"They set you up to fail so that the people chosen by regional mgmt can shine.... also there are a lot of executives inappropriately engaging with female employees and therefore playing favorites"

"I was a sewing machine operator and in the beginning everything was fine then the stampers kept messing up and I got let go for lack of production because I had way to much work for just me when the product came over to me Cons: Work in the first part of the plant so you don’t have to wait on anyone besides the delivery compony"

Sales Associate (Former Employee) says

"Horrible place to work, they do not appreciate any of their employees. Do not expect to be promoted easily here they run on favoritism.

"HORRIBLE place to work! Can't trust anyone!!! Everyone is disposable and all they care about is themselves! Manager is clueless to the market and often falls asleep starring at the computer. Horrible breath! The assistant is young and will do anything to become the manager. The key holder with the most experience is a bitter old woman who only cares about herself and no one else! Very sad!!!! Cons: Ok benefits."

Corporate Executive (Former Employee) says

"This group of people hire only Asians to work in their Omega retail stores. They actually told me that they can trust them. They will not hire black people or Mexicans unless it's a door guard position. Not only is this company racist but th head executives are racist as we'll. They have headquarters located in New Jersey and very single one of them at the corporate office is racist. Don't waste your time with this company, these people don't even know anything about retail management or running a retail store anyways. Work for Tiffany's & Co or Rolex. Cons: Racist group of people running this comnpany"
