OMEGA SIX / FRANCE   (1922 - 1930)

The  AUTOMOBILES OMEGA SIX  Company started car production in 1922 until 1930. It was a real luxury car made on the lines of the HISPANO SUIZA at Boulogne-sur-Seine near Paris. Even the design is resembling  the HISPANO SUIZA.  Not many of the OMEGA SIX were made, so you have to look years for this outstanding emblem.
One surviving car can be seen in the Automobile Museum of Le Mans in France.

There was a second OMEGA SIX emblem in the form of a simple black oval.
Really nothing special.  This emblem was reproduced in the nineteeneighties.

Last not least there was a second repro emblem. However, there is no evidence that this emblem, which only says SIX, was ever used on a vehicle.
