  • Catalogue Essay

    To celebrate the 50th anniversary of the caliber 27 CHRO C12, the Omega reference 3191.50.00 was launched in 1992 as a limited edition of 999 examples. One of the most impressive milestones in the history of horology, the first Omega chronograph watches fitted with the caliber 27 CHRO C12 were released in 1942. The movement was further improved and later renamed caliber 321, which was housed in various models including all the Speedmasters until 1968.

    Omega debuted three limited models, all of which had cases in 18K yellow gold, to commemorate its Jubilee anniversary. The present watch belongs to the first series, of which 999 were made. These examples comprised a caliber 863 movement and, for the first time in a Speedmaster, a sapphire-crystal glass. Offered in overall excellent condition, and further complimented with blank International Warranty and box, the present watch is highly collectable and very 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.
