Before new Omega watches are launched, they through rigorous and well defined processes of design, technological development and quality control. The creation of a new watch starts with an internal brainstorming session based on a marketing brief which is translated into sketches, then industrial designs and ends with a first 3D prototype. Technological development goes hand in hand with the evolution of the design. Designers and engineers work very closely together when creating new Omega watches.
