  • Catalogue Essay

    The Omega Cosmic with moon phases and triple calendar was first introduced in the 1940s. The present watch, cased in stainless steel, has a large diameter of 37 mm. The overall condition is very appealing with crisp case and sharp edges. The movement is very clean and the dial is in impeccable condition.

    What further enhances the rarity of this Omega is the Arabian-Indic numerals and calendar that is easily understood by all Arabian countries. Seldom do such watches appear at auction or even listed in literature, this bespoke Omega is a highly collectible wristwatch.

  • 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.
