  • Catalogue Essay

    Omega has always been an official timekeeper for the prestigious Olympic Games since 1932 on over 28 occasions. The firm has developed professional timekeeping instruments for various sports to record world breaking results. To commemorate the Olympic Games, Omega has introduced various limited edition models to celebrate the event.

    Originally scheduled for this year, the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games have unfortunately been postponed due to a global pandemic of COVID-19. Regardless, Omega launched the Tokyo Olympics 2020 limited edition of timepieces including five Speedmasters each featuring a different color to represent the Olympics Logo with blue, yellow, black, green and red. Extremely appealing, each variation is interpreted in a different style and with each timepiece limited to 2,020 pieces.

    The present example features a crimson red bezel featuring a beautiful light grey sandblasted dial with silvered indexes and hands giving the watch a subtle appeal. Numbered 1,709, the present example is brand new and unworn with all its accessories complete. Unique, it is perhaps the first time that a limited edition Olympic Omega wristwatch was launched with the actual event postponed.

  • 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.
