They are a forward-thinking brand that has incorporated new materials into their movements. These new materials have been researched and implemented to combat the #1 enemy of all mechanical watches; electromagnetic frequencies or EMFs.
Omega’s finest movements are Master Chronometers. These are known to have arguably the highest magnetic resistance in the business and just may be the most accurate mechanical watches with only Rolex’s Superlative Chronometers as a direct competitor.
Like many other upper-market brands, Piaget doesn’t stop at the manufacturing of precision movements but takes pride in the finishing techniques of their components. While Omega applies beautiful finishing to their components and plates, Piaget tends to take it up a notch and appears to go the extra mile to make their calibers shine brilliantly.
Choosing a replica luxury watches is only half the challenge, taking care of it and maintaining it is the other half. If something ever went wrong with a watch, you will have a strong manufacturer’s warranty. Omega has a 5-year warranty on all their watches. Piaget only offers a two-year warranty.
In fact, very few watchmakers offer more than a two-year warranty and Omega has implemented certain mechanical components that allow them to not only offer a longer warranty period but a longer interval between routine servicing and maintenance.
After about 50 years of being in the business, they transitioned to manufacturing luxurious pocket watches and wristwatches. Piaget’s fame hit a crescendo in the 1950s when they introduced the world’s thinnest manual wind wristwatch, and then again, a few years later with the world’s thinnest automatic watch thanks to their micro-rotor design.
Omega aligned them-selves with some Hollywood A-listers over the years and have amassed a large number of celebrity brand ambassadors such as Nicole Kidman, Daniel Craig and more. Piaget has nabbed a few Hollywood celebrities as well such as Michael B Jordan and Jessica Chastain and they tend to compliment their brand perfectly. Their most recent brand ambassador is the world’s best pastry chef Cédric Grolet.
While we are comparing Piaget to Omega, more accurate brands to compare Piaget to would be Cartier and Chopard. Why? Since Piaget is both a luxury watchmaker that produces high-complication watches and at the same time is a high-end luxury jeweler. They, like Cartier and Chopard, are both in the Haute-Joaillerie and Haute-Horlogerie and produce many bespoke best swiss watches replica that are in the six and sometimes seven-figure price range like the diamond-paved Piaget Emperador Temple for example, with a 3.3-million-dollar price tag.
Brand Recognition & Value
That said, Omega is a far more popular brand and has higher brand recognition than Piaget. According to rankingthebrands.com, a BV4 (a brand valuation agency) on the various Swiss brands concluded in their report that Omega had the #2 highest brand value in the Swiss watch industry with only Rolex ahead of them in the first position. Omega’s brand value is at 3,138 Million Swiss Francs.
Piaget is in the top 20 but at position #13 with a brand value of 600 Million CHF.* Omega has also shown 300% more growth in brand value year over year with a 3% increase compared to Piaget which only had a 1% increase from the previous year.
So, in terms of how many people would recognize the watch you’re wearing, studies show that you’re statistically more likely to get a “Hey, nice Omega watch there!” more often than a “Is that a Piaget you’re wearing there?”
Omega has a vaster collection of watches throughout its various collections and series. With over 1,100 watches in their catalog. Piaget is only displaying approximately 200 different watches in their catalog. So, in terms of choice and selection, Omega certainly has the upper hand. The buttons below can be used to browse many of their collections.
Sometimes it’s a matter of quality over quantity. While Omega has many watches, they are catered to (for the most) part the general public. Watch collectors that truly geek out over the horological appreciation of a watch’s caliber and mechanical features will often lean towards brands that can produce high complication fake rolex watches.
Piaget is one such brand that can produce marvels such as an ultra-thin tourbillon watch, a minute-repeater or a perpetual calendar watch as you would find in the Piaget Emperador, Piaget Altiplano, and Piaget Gouveneur collections.
This is not to say that Omega is in any way an inferior watchmaker. In fact, for the types of watches that Omega manufactures, they are in an excellent position and have made quantum leaps in terms of development and innovation.
