  • Catalogue Essay

    A prestigious prize of recognition, the Silver Snoopy Award was first presented to NASA astronauts, companies and members of the community who contributed to the Manned Flight Awareness programme in 1968. Amidst an oxygen tank explosion onboard, an Omega Speedmaster was used to time the launch back to earth. In honour of their efforts in developing a space-friendly timepiece, the manufacturer was presented with this award in 1970 for their contribution to space travel at the time.

    Sporting an iconic Speedmaster dial, the present timepiece is graced with a modern twist, it features the anthropomorphic beagle from Peanuts on its caseback and the subsidiary dial at 9 o’clock.

    Preserved in excellent overall condition with its original accessories, the present Speedmaster Professional "Snoopy Award" is numbered 555 of a 5441-piece limited edition. This is a fun watch for serious collectors, ready to be a part of Omega and NASA’s long and successful partnership.

  • 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.
