  • Catalogue Essay

    The present watch is one of Omega's most elusive limited edition pieces. Manufactured in 1991, it is the firm's most complicated serially produced Speemaster model, featuring a perpetual calendar chronograph complication with moonphases.

    Research shows that the present watch was made in a limited series of 50 examples, exclusively for the Japanese market, made to commemorate the 700th anniversary of Switzerland in 1991. Indeed, the case back is inscribed "Suisse" and "1291 - 1991 Speedmaster Perpetual" to celebrate the special moment.

  • 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.
