First Omega Wrist-Chronograph Limited Edition

Jul 5, 2018

Category: Gear

Omega is one of the most legendary watch brands in history. The (bedazzled) watch that Elvis wore, the watch that sailed to the moon on Buzz Aldrin’s wrist – the Omega brand is the true Alpha of watch brands, and has plenty of historical watches to prove it. Now, you can own a piece of its history, by purchasing the carefully reconstructed First Omega Wrist-Chronograph.

Made from authentic, period-correct parts by the experts at Omega’s Atelier de Tourbillon, this watch is a nearly perfect reconstruction of the first wrist-chronograph ever made by Omega. The horogolical historians refurbished the parts and reassembled them to form a working watch that almost precisely emulates the 1915 model that was their first wrist-chronograph. Complete with the riveted leather strap, white enamel dial with hollow Arabic numerals, and blued “Empire” watch hands, the watch has been only modestly updated with tactful modernizations – white gold case, sapphire crystal with scratch resistance. Overall, it is an authentic and faithful recreation of the first wristwatch Omega ever made.

Purchase: $120,000
