  • Catalogue Essay

    Particularly during the late 1960's and 1970's, the Middle East commissioned watchmakers such as Rolex, Patek Philippe and Omega to exclusively produce special dials and custom engravings for their distinguished rulers. The present watch is fitted with an original black lacquer dial, featuring the signature of His Majesty Sabah Alssalem Alsabah. Fitted with pink gold numerals to the pie-pan design, this watch is not only incredibly attractive, but also has important historical value to the state of Kuwait.

  • 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.
