  • Catalogue Essay

    Produced in 1994 to commemorate the 100th anniversary of Omega's first series-produced watches, the Homage 1894 consisted of 100 centre seconds wristwatches with cloisonné enamel dial. These watches were fitted with a new-old stock movement from 1963, the caliber 286.

    The present watch bears the most interesting N°100/100. It offers a spectacular enamel cloisonné flower in the central zone of the dial. To preserve the beauty of the floral arrangement, the dial is therefore kept as elegantly minimalistic as is possible with a champagne chapter ring with applied gold dot and faceted indexes with the hands in yellow gold matching the case and crown. The Omega logo is unusually placed in the six o’clock position.

    Accompanied with its original large book-shaped box fitted with the certificate of origin and guarantee, it’s an impressive and collectible watch that offers tremendous value for the collector.

  • Artist Biography


    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.
