  • Catalogue Essay

    Launched in 1948, the Omega Seamaster is the oldest line in the manufacture's current collection. Fitted with a waterproof patented case, the model was initially made for the British military at the end of World War II. It then became the robust yet elegant watch by Omega, targeting a public looking for a watch for “town, sea and country”.

    The present timepiece is the perfect representation of this philosophy. Fitted in a stainless steel case with an elegant dial design, this watch should have lived an active lifestyle but instead, has been kept hidden since it left the manufacture. Yes, this watch is a true New Old Stock piece. The caseback still retains the original sticker and even the hang tag is attached to the buckle on the leather Omega bracelet. This Seamaster can be truly described as a time-capsule!

  • 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.
