Notes

The OMEGA Cosmic Triple-Date Moonphase wristwatch was striking in its remarkably easy legibility and swathe of complications all fitted within an elegantly slender case. While produced only until the 1950’s, its reproduction in 2002 for the Museum Collection is a testament to the model’s enduring popularity.
