Style and fashion play a huge part in our lives. Not only does it represent who you are, but it can make you feel confident and happy. Putting on something nice gives you confidence and leaves a statement on your personality.

Accessories might not look so important for someone, but in the fashion world, they are the fundamentals of every look. From jewelry to watches, there is a reason why it is a billion-dollar market – it makes you feel so good that it turns out to be a necessity in your life!

One of the most celebrated watch companies in the world, Omega, holds a never-ending collection of watches for men. It is a Swiss luxury watchmaker from Biel, Switzerland. Founded in 1848 by Louis Brandt, the brand was used in combat units by the Britain’s Royal Flying Corps, the US Army, and by NASA in 1969 for Apollo 11. Since 1932, Omega is the official timekeeper for the Olympics, and a companion to James Bond in his fights!

How to choose the right Omega watch? There are several things men need to look for while buying a vintage watch.

First of all, do your research and decide what kind of model you want. You can do the research on pre-owned sites where you can see models like the Seamaster, the Speedmaster, De Ville or the Constellation. Once you know what model you want to get, focus on the details and references. Vintage watches are a luxury investment, and it must feel and look good for you! One you know what watch you want, make sure to check the lug and strap or bracelet, they might be damaged throughout the years, so you need to be careful on that. The crown and the bezel are important for the appearance as well. Even though a lot of vintage watches are kept in perfect condition, these are the parts that get damaged or scratched most often, so make sure you go through those in detail. If you are buying the vintage watch online, make sure you have quality pictures where you can see all these parts and make sure they are intact.

Another thing which is extremely important is to focus on the dials. Normally, the most important part of the watch, on which the watchmaker spends the most time and effort, is always refreshed in some sort of way. They are always being upgraded, from Bulova’s Accutron electromagnetic system of functioning, to the automatic movement of the Chronograph in the 80s.

Finally, if you are buying from a reliable seller, always make sure they give you the reference numbers. And if not all numbers are available, then they must provide you with the numbers that track back the year of the watch and the model type.

Below are some fine pieces of Omega watches for men that we are sure will catch your eye.
