About the Model

The Seamaster Memomatic was launched by Omega in 1970.

This creation was a double world first in terms of alarm wristwatches:

  • it was the first automatic rotor watch equipped with a single barrel (powering both the time movement and the alarm mechanism), which made it possible to save as much energy as possible;
  • it was also the very first alarm watch that could be be programmed to the minute, by means of a display consisting of two moving discs bearing the alarm markers (a triangle for the hours and a double line for the minutes).

This system was patented in 1968 and published in 1971.

About the Brand

In 1848, Louis Brandt founded a company in La Chaux-de-Fonds which would become Omega. In the 1880s, the Louis Brandt & Fils company moved to its current site in Bienne and in 1894 the caliber Omega was created, which would give its name to the company. Renowned for its precise, innovative and affordable watches, it became the largest supplier of watches to the British Army during World War II. It also became the first company to time the Olympic Games in 1932. Among its range of numerous professional watches, the Speedmaster became the first watch worn on the moon in 1969.
