  • Catalogue Essay

    Omega introduced the reference 3577.50 at Basel in 2004, and while it has the same make up as other Speedmaster Professionals, the dial immediately sets the watch apart from all the others. In bold colors, the constant seconds features an image of Earth, the 30 minute register with an image of Mars, and the 12-hour register an image of the moon. The words “From the Moon to Mars” runs along the dial edge from the five to four positions. While not a limited edition, each watch in the collection was issued an individual number, for the present example, No.3346. The hand-wound Lemania caliber 1861 is the successor to the caliber 861, which was in use from 1968 until 1997.

    As a celebration of NASA’s adding Mars to their exploration destination, the present watch is extremely well-preserved and will add another dimension to any well-rounded collection.

    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.
