  • Catalogue Essay

    Produced during the 1930s, Omega’s reference CK2013 has oversized proportions, with its 39mm diameter case, when compared to the standard 33 to 35 mm case sizes in vogue at the time. Collectors nicknamed the model “Disco Volante” (flying saucer) due to its flat, stepped bezel and hidden lugs. The large case of the present lot is enhanced by the unusual two tone dial and correct period adjustable bracelet. With fresh, clean lines and a highly legible dial, this is an attractive vintage watch made for the modern man.

    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.
