  • Catalogue Essay

    Easily spotted through the presence of the beloved cartoon pet beagle Snoopy on the dial and case back, the “Snoopy Award”, introduced in 2003, is definitely one of the most intriguing and collectable Omega Speedmaster models.

    When Apollo 13 malfunctioned and caused the abortion of its journey to the moon, the astronauts onboard had to swiftly repair the spacecraft, and then use the rockets to return to earth. Without advanced computing, the engine activation time had to be calculated by hand. Too long or too short would result in a disastrous end of the mission.

    Using their officially issued Speedmaster chronographs, the crew managed to successfully land on earth, and NASA granted Omega a Silver Snoopy Award in recognition of the critical role it played during the crisis. The “Snoopy Award” Speedmaster is a commemoration of such an extraordinary milestone in the history of horology and space exploration. Accompanied with warranty and box, the present watch is a definite grail.

  • 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.
