  • Catalogue Essay

    With most of the production of Swiss timepieces mainly produced as pocket watches in the early 1920’s, wristwatches were still practically a fairly new innovation. Omega’s first wristwatch was introduced in 1900, inspired mostly from its previous pocket watch movements and case designs.

    The present example is an early yellow gold Omega mono-pusher chronograph wristwatch from the 1920’s sporting the cal. 28.9.

  • 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.
