Footnotes

  • First launched in 1947, the Omega 'Cosmic' was the first watch by the brand to display the time and date with hands and the day, month and moon phase separately in windows. In 1951 they introduced it in a square case which was a great departure from the traditional round case making it a classic in Omegas range. It has now been reproduced as a museum piece for the 2002 collection. The square Omega Cosmic is one of the rarest models of the Omega production and the Black dial especially so.
