Cataloguing

Catalogue Note

In celebration of the 60th anniversary of the Speedmaster, Omega produced a limited run of 557 ‘Trilogy’ sets, each comprised of a Speedmaster, Railmaster and Seamaster. Each watch was modeled on the original 1957 editions of these timepieces, the references 2915, 2914 and 2913, all sharing the Broad Arrow hands and straight bevel lugged cases. The present example features a box signed by Michael Collins. Collins, a member of the Apollo 11 team, began his flight career as a pilot in the US Air Force, eventually becoming one of the USAF’s Experimental Test Pilots in 1960. These elite pilots fed into the United States space program, and many became future astronauts. Collins participated in the Gemini program, and eventually joined the Apollo 11 crew, destined to be the first men to land on the surface of Earth’s satelite. Collins, as Command Module Pilot, remained above in Columbia, keeping watch on the lunar surface for the Eagle and preparing for any issues that could arise during Aldrin and Armstrong’s time on the Moon. 


After retirement from being an astronaut, Collins was appointed Assistant Secretary of State for Public Affairs by President Richard Nixon, and in 1970 began a career of lobbying for the creation of a new permanent building and home for the National Air and Space Museum, which was successful in 1972 and Collins held the position of Director until 1978 moving to a different capacity at the Smithsonian. The box of the present lot was signed by Collins during the filming of the movie 'First Man' for a member of the film crew.


The present ‘Trilogy’ set is also distinguished by a small, but curious detail, in that it is number 365 of 557; a fitting number for a set with astronomical ties.
