  • Catalogue Essay

    The present example of reference 105.012 not only impresses the beholder with its extremely well preserved condition of both case and dial, but it furthermore features a most elusive engraving to the case back: a winged shield inscribed TAT and under it the designation “TAT Flying Club”. All efforts to identify such a club have proven unsuccessful, including in-depth research on location in Japan, where the piece was originally sold.

    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.
