Catalogue Essay To mark the 40th anniversary of the Speedmaster series in 1997, Omega launched 40 commemorative sets in tribute to the space missions of the three NASA programs: Gemini, Apollo and Skylab. The present Speedmaster Missions Collection is numbered 40, meaning that it is the final set offered for sale. The collection includes 22 Missions wristwatches – each contain the official patches of NASA’s space missions at 9 o’clock, in addition to a reproduction of the first Speedmaster, reference CK 2915 of 1957. The wristwatches, coming with a plastic encased movement and a loupe, are contained in a beautifully crafted white Omega valise made of the same fabric used for space suits. The case back of these watches are inscribed "Flight-Qualified By NASA For All, Manned Space Missions, The First Watch Worn On The Moon", the name of the mission and number 40/40. Accompanied with stamped International Warranty, Certificate and other accessories, the present lot is an unmissable chance for watch lovers and space enthusiasts to own mementos which chronicle the most important spacefaring missions in the history of humanity. Read More Maker Bio Omega Swiss • 1848 Follow 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.
