  • Catalogue Essay

    With an unmissable red dial, the remarkable “Michael Schumacher” series is notable for its fresh look and was produced in both red and yellow versions. The lineup was launched by racing legend Michael Schumacher who had become a new Omega ambassador in 1996. In addition to the racing-style dial, the watch was accompanied with a black rubber presentation box that resembled the tires of Formula One cars and featured Schumacher’s signature in white.

    No longer in production, the “Michael Schumacher” model embodies extraordinary intrinsic values compared to other lines of Omega Speedmaster watches. Accompanied with box, warranty and other accessories, the present lot offers watch collectors a rare chance to own a piece which amply epitomizes the pinnacle of motorsport and Haute Horlogerie.

  • Artist Biography

    Omega

    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.
