  • Catalogue Essay

    The present reference, ST 105.002, is probably one of the rarest reference in the history of Speedmaster in production for less than a year with estimated production between 2,000 to 2,600 pieces. ST105.002 is in fact a renamed 2998-62 following the introduction of the new mapics product-coding system.

    Another interesting fact for the present watch is that it comes with engraving of ‘SC’ or ‘S.C’ which stands for Seconde Centrale (Center seconds) The dial has nicely aged over the years with the luminous turning to a warm orange tone and a gray faded inlay. The crystal furthermore features the Omega symbol to the center, attesting to its original condition.

  • 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.
