Lot Essay

The most luxurious version of the now iconic Omega Central Tourbillon 2002 with full heavy 18K gold bracelet, the present watch is to the best of our knowledge only the second example with gold bracelet to be offered at auction.

First launched in 1994 with the caliber 1170 movement, the Omega Central Tourbillon was the first of its kind with automatic winding. For the first time, the tourbillon was placed at the centre of the watch, a visually stunning and ingenious creation. The further challenge of the placement of the hands was solved equally ingeniously in the form of two sapphire crystal discs each etched with a hand and rotating around the centre in a similar way to a mystery watch. In 2002, the new version was presented with improved caliber 2600 chronometer movement. Each watch was tested at the Contrôle Officiel Suisse des Chronomètres and issued with a Chronometer Certificate to confirm its high precision. Available in 18K yellow gold, pink gold, white gold and platinum, only the yellow gold version was available with gold bracelet.
