  • Catalogue Essay

    The Silver Snoopy Award is a prestigious recognition within the NASA community. First presented in 1968, this award was part of the Manned Flight Awareness program whereby NASA astronauts selected and awarded companies and members of the community who contributed to space travel. Omega was awarded the Silver Snoopy Award in 1970, when the Omega Speedmaster successfully helped time the launch back to earth amidst an oxygen tank explosion on board. The Silver Snoopy Award continues today, and holds the same importance some forty years since its inception.

    Presented in like-new condition with full accessories, this is an opportunity to partake in Omega and NASA's long and important history.

  • 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.
