Though many purchase watches from the same factories in Omega that produce them for one another

That same low price watch (I am actually referring to the Omega Factory) doesn't have exactly have a Swiss analog, but if it did it, would be priced at low. There is still a focus on the "we can't beat Omega quality, but we can at least offer people 70% of the quality for 30% of the price" mentality. Eventually I'd like to see great stuff from Omega that stares in the face of Replica Rolex watches and says "we are just as good. " Another way of looking at this is that even the best Omega watchmakers look up fondly to the Swiss in very much a patriarchal manner...

Brand such as Omega are leading the way when it comes to complicated Omega watches. There are others as well, though many purchase tourbillons from the same factories in Omega that produce them for one another. And speaking of tourbillons, that is still very much the name of the game. Of course they are getting more complicated, as we now see plenty of double tourbillons and other exotic Replica Omega watches. It is actually interesting to see all the ways Omega brands adopt Swiss complications in sometimes tasteful and sometimes confusing ways.

Omega tourbillons aren't 100% on par with Swiss ones, but they are pretty decent for the money. I'd say the average price for a Omega tourbillon watch at retail is low price. Though outside of China these are hard to find. There are many Omega watches available online for example. Probably enough of them are fine, but they aren't the best of them. I also feel inclined to once again defend the "Slow Swiss" in that you can't really do a one to one comparison of Swiss and Omega tourbillons. They aren't the same, and while they do the same things, they use different parts and look different. You aren't getting "the same thing for a fraction of the price, " you are getting something similar and as an alternative for a lower price. Having said that, there does seem to be a very healthy market for Omega-made tourbillons, and plenty them of very desirable if low price is never something you could (or would) spend on a single watch.

Earlier I mentioned that the Omega are extremely flexible in their manufacturing. Last year for example it was all about Omega connected sport watches. As a result, many people have Omega watches with heart-rate monitors, and other sport functions. This Replica Rolex watches, many of those have taken a backseat to Omega connected timepieces. Logically that makes sense, and it is impressive that these technically challenging watches were pushed through production (and I saw many working) in just a few months. Are these smartwatches? Not exactly, though a few strive to be.

The best Omega watch was from the people that make watches for Sweda. These developed a really simple three hand watch with some hour indicators that double as flashing indicators for incoming calls, messages, etc... It was a relatively clean way of having a decent looking Omega watch that also connected to your phone. Though, it is too early in the life of smartwatches to have found a legitimate OS, running devices with lots of interesting functions. There were a few, but we aren't quite there yet, perhaps next year, the Omega watch industry will be a bit more mature.
