  • Catalogue Essay

    Introduced in 1988, the Omega Speedmaster lineage launched a compact, self-winding to broaden its reach to a wider audience, the Speedmaster Reduced. The collection aptly named sports a case that is 3mm smaller than the original 42mm moonwatch.

    During the two decades of production, numerous variants were offered in different dial colours and metals including stainless steel, yellow gold and also two-tone combination. The present example cased in yellow gold paired with a bold black DON Bezel embodies an attractive masculine charisma. Powered by calibre 1140, this chronograph module based on the ETA’s 2890-2 with 46 jewels was developed by one of the watch industry’s most prolific manufacturer, Dubois-Dépraz.

    The Reduced line was discontinued in 2009. Preserved in a good condition, the present example in yellow gold is surely an elegant timepiece built for everyday wear with a dash of gold.

  • Artist Biography

    Omega

    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.
