Even if Omega is trying to compete with rolex, there will never be a real competiotin. Omega will never reach Rolex.

Both are great watches and one should wear what they like. But, Omega's marketing about being the official "moon" watch fails to mention that famous astronauts did wear Rolex as well.

Thinking of getting their latest Explo 1 introduced in 2010;
Less bling and therefore more elegant yet totally 'practical'.
Looks good not too expensive and high resale value.

most rolex watches are more rounded products than most omega watches.
Inside, rolex might not have decorated their machines down to great details, but they focus on robustness (at least, we perceive it as it is).
Outside, most Rolex watches have simple and timeless lines. Moreover, the metal used (904L) seems to be "more noble" to the eyes, and certainly more scratch resistant.
Thus, perhaps a Rolex watch was designed to be able to withstand the test of time, and I appreciate the logic behind that.

As for Omega, and some other watch brands, they tend to over-design the product, becoming unnecessary and/or cumbersome in real world use. For instance, look at the bracelet design of the Omega Seamaster Professional. It's basically over-decorated, and getting too "90's", while the polished part is prone to scratch.
Instead of becoming a trademark of itself, Omega tries to match Rolex at its own game, developing products as an alternative to Rolex. This, I believe, is a form of flattery to Rolex and a free-marketing campaign to Rolex. Not everybody wants to be wear a copycat, and that's another reason. In my opinion, Omega must develop its own "color". Look at Panerai, it doesn't try to be a Rolex, and succeed big time. The trend of oversized watch started with Panerai, not Rolex (and Rolex now developed bigger watches as well). Now, that a very good study.

Omega seems to want to to appeal to a younger, more hip crowd that wants "bling" on their watches, Rolex while not heavy on bling are in my opinion much more substantial watches.

Omegas are built to last and are usually bought as a lifetime timepiece, not so much with Rolex which seems to attract the fickled status seeker. However, both are quality watches. Although I have been told by numerous watchmakers that the Omega is built much better with a better movement.

The Omega, especially the new 2011 models, have a superior mechanism to that of the Rolex. But honestly, I simply believe the Omega Seamaster Professional Planet Ocean is one of the best looking watches on the market, or at least its that way in my affordability range.
  • Anonymous . 3+ yrs. ago
it was warn on the moon, Rolex failed, I wouldn't want to buy a watch based on its looks , I would rather invest in an expansive watch based on its functions. Simple, Rolex is like a woman purse they wont last long in a collection , unlike an omega which will show every one your manliness and a little piece of history on your wrist.

Omega have made the decision to move upmarket in direct competition to Rolex. They have a very long lasting feel and a luxury watch is a thing of beauty to last over time to outlive the owner if you like. Omega will outlive Rolex that is the appeal it's about beauty functionality and quie appropriately TIME

Omega is a way more intelligent and forward thinking choice - taking up the George Daniels co-axial movement was a master stroke. In the end why buy a non quartz movement unless it is simply gorgeous like a Patek or intellectually clever like the co-axial. Unless Rolex can work out a new strategy that crown is going to totter and fall.

In singapore, even taxi driver, hawker also wearing rolex. The old generation only know about rolex and just go for it. They though that only Rolex watches are the best and know nothing about Patek philippe or vacheron Constantin. Omega is not so popular and lower end compare to Rolex. I do not want to be so attractive to anyone esp. robbers. I just want to have a good & presentable watch for daily use.

Omega is a proven watch. A James Bond watch. The official watch of the Olympics. NASA's choice for space flight and the first watch on the moon. Only qualified by NASA for extravehicular space missions. Worn by many famous and legendary individuals. The likely choice for future manned space missions to Mars for a forseeable future.

I've owned both watches and they similar models and feel they are both very capable timepieces.That being said they both are visually appealing but feel that name plays the biggest part.When it comes to wearing one I tend to wear the Omega due to lower cost and less fear of damaging the watch,I would rather replace a bezel or crystal in the omega than the rolex at about one third the cost.I can't see where a sapphire crystal for one or the other would cost triple to repair.Just my opinion
