  • Catalogue Essay

    In 2017, Porsche Club of America and Omega released a new limited edition “Grey Side of the Moon” Speedmaster celebrating the fine art of watch and car manufacturing. The collaboration was an ideal pairing given the attention to detail and precision quality both firms produce, and while the Speedmaster is now an icon and most recognized for its trip to the moon, Omegas early chronograph watches were for precision timing at the track. The brand first released the “Grey Side of the Moon” timepiece in 2014 and it was a manufacturing marvel made from ceramic sporting a platinum dial. The watch was masculine, robust and durable and the perfect complement for the PCA limited edition chronograph.

    The Porsche Club of America is the single largest brand club in the world with over 100,000 members. The 2017 “Grey Side of the Moon” uses the same 9300 caliber as the 2014 edition, however the watch is enhanced with yellow accents to the hands, the constant seconds hand, and the wording “Speedmaster” on the dial and “tachymetre” on the bezel, along with the yellow stitching on the leather strap. The grey and yellow combination brings to mind Porsche’s brake discs made from grey ceramic and yellow calipers. The dial is ceramised titanium and is marked “Ti” above the center post. The watch is further enhanced with the club’s logo in yellow transferred to the sapphire crystal display back. Originally only available from the club’s website, the present watch is number 67 of 99 examples and is in excellent overall condition and complete with box and guarantee.

  • 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.
