  • Catalogue Essay

    The Omega reference 105.012 was released in 1964 and has been affectionately named the “Moonwatch” as the 105.012 would be used to accompany Apollo astronauts on several missions during the late 1960s and early 1970s. The reference was the first to feature the “Professional” signature on the dial and the larger 42mm case size with crown guards. This reference is where we see the Omega Speedmaster evolve and take the shape that is still made to this day.

    The present 105.012-66 is made even more collectible by the fact that the case was made by La Central Boîtes (CB stamped inside the caseback), cases made by CB had lugs with a flat top and a small step. La Centrale Boîtes made cases only for this reference. The watch features strong proportions and a period correct “dot over 90” (DON) bezel with all the markers intact and little signs of aging.

  • 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.
