  • Catalogue Essay

    During the late 1930s, Omega created the 30T2RG movement, which powered many of their time-only wristwatches.

    This chronometer certified wristwatch is a time capsule in so many ways. Accompanied by its original "Certificat de Marche", it even retains the business card of the retailer where it was sold - Henri Blanc on Rue du Rhône, Geneva. Even more impressive is the watch's condition. The two-tone dial is free of heavy tarnishing, which is remarkable as this watch is fitted with a snap-on case back. The case retains two sharp hallmarks, with one on either side of the case.

    Research shows that the present watch was produced on December 12, 1946 and delivered to Switzerland.

    Omega

    Swiss • 1848

    Omega's rich history begins with its founder, Louis Brandt, who established the firm in 1848 in La Chaux de Fonds. In 1903, the company changed its name to Omega, becoming the only watch brand in history to have been named after one its own movements. A full-fledged manufacturer of highly accurate, affordable and reliable watches, its sterling reputation enabled them to be chosen as the first watch company to time the Olympic Games beginning in 1932. Its continued focus on precision and reliability ultimately led their Speedmaster chronograph wristwatch to be chosen by NASA in 1965 — the first watch worn on the moon.

    Key models sought-after by collectors include their first, oversized water-resistant chronograph — the reference 2077, early Speedmaster models such as the CK 2915 and 2998, military-issued versions of the Seamaster and oversized chronometer models such as those fitted with their prestigious caliber 30T2Rg.
