  • Catalogue Essay

    From 1946 to 1956, Omega produced exceedingly limited quantities of wristwatches fitted with cloisonné enamel dials, ranging from Neptune riding the sea, to intricate maps of the world. These special dials were created by none other than esteemed dial-maker Stern Frère. The present model, with an intricate floral center design, pays homage to Omega's history, conjuring images of beautiful and fantastical enamel dials of lore.

    Omega launched a cloisonné enamel wristwatch in 1994 to commemorate the manufacture's 100th anniversary. The watch was produced in 100 examples, with the present example numbered 84/100. The model was most notably fitted with a new old stock movement, caliber 286, referencing technological innovations of the past.

    This watch is furthermore accompanied with a certificate of authenticity and fitted presentation box, further enhancing the watch's collectibility.

  • 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.
