  • Catalogue Essay

    The present stainless steel Omega open-faced pocket watch from circa 1935 is adorned by a beautiful two tone sector dial. Encased in a slim 46mm diameter case is the cal. 37,5L-15P equipped with a Breguet hairspring. Indicated with large blued stainless steel hands, the contrast against the two tone silvery dial is extremely attractive while retaining a clean and legible dial layout.

  • 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.
