  • Catalogue Essay

    The present lot is an exceptional platinum limited edition watch that commemorates the historic Apollo 11 lunar landing. Released in 2009, this is the iconic Speedmaster Professional in all platinum and fully loaded with many unique features that are appropriate for such an event in the course of human history. The dial has the GMT time in red below the signature, and it is outfitted with an 18k gold subsidiary seconds hand with plaque 67/69. The chronograph hand has a complimentary red tip that matches the GMT time. The platinum case is fitted with an 18k gold back with the Apollo 11 Mission insignia and 40th anniversary. The special dial is protected with a Hesalite shatter proof acrylic crystal that is similar to the one found on the original moon watch.

    In unused condition, this example is number 67 of 69 timepieces. The collection was made in platinum, along with 7969 stainless steel examples with sterling silver medallion. This is a very rare opportunity for collectors to share in the joy and passion of one of the most dramatic events in history, and to also celebrate the importance of Omega timing.

  • 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.
