  • Catalogue Essay

    Launched in 1964, reference ST 105.012 is also known as the 'Moonwatch' as Buzz Aldrin wore on this model on his space mission. The present watch features "lyre" lugs and is accompanied with a 1039 bracelet stamped for the third quarter of 1967, confirming it is original to the watch. The case back is signed HF, for Huguenin Frères, Lelocle, which is correct for this reference.

    Even rarer still, the watch is fitted with a 'Pulsations' bezel. At the time of production, this reference was offered with different bezel options such as the Pulsometer, Tachymeter or Telemeter. Watches fitted with the pulsations bezel were produced in a very limited amount only, which makes this watch incredibly rare.

  • 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.
