  • Catalogue Essay

    Since the Apollo 11's 20th anniversary in 1989, Omega produces a limited edition series relatively frequently to commemorate humankind landing on the moon. In 1994, Omega released a limited edition series of 500 Speedmasters cased in white gold to celebrate the 25th anniversary of Apollo 11. Indeed the band is engraved "APOLLO XI 1969-1994" to commemorate this special moment. There are two versions of this reference - one with a white gold bracelet and one with a leather strap, the present watch being the latter example.

    Presented in original and excellent condition, this watch retains all original factory finishes and engravings. It is numbered 363 out of a limited edition series of 500 watches.

  • 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.
