Omega Cosmic Ref. 3944-1
Not your everyday omega
These Omega Cosmics from the 1950s are one of the most beautiful moonphase watches ever made, stunningly classic and elegant. This reference dates to the early 50s a features a very distinctive and classy 18K case executed in the perfect proportions (32x44mm).
A watch like this is the ultimate showstopper and will capture everyone just by its interesting looks alone. Look at the beautiful alpha hands in combination with the cabochon, baguette, and spike hour markers…
However, this watch is way more than that. During the 1950s this caliber 27 DL-381 towered its competition when it came to complicated wristwatches. The pointer date, calendar, and moonphase were true haute horology.
In 2001 Omega reintroduced this watch under their ‘museum collection’ due to its horological importance. As ref.3944 was introduced in the year of 1951, they made exactly 1951 pieces of the reintroduction.

Omega was founded in La chaux-de-fonds by Louis Brandt in 1848, although the company would not be named Omega until 1903. It is one of the most successful Swiss watch houses, both in terms of sales and historical significance.
Louis Brandt was already rather innovative before his Omega days. He developed the very first minute-repeater wristwatch with Audemars Piguet in 1892. Although Brandt died in 1903, Omega would not lose its innovative nature. Among its biggest accomplishments are the manufacture of the first tourbillon wristwatch movement in 1947 and the first large-scale commercial implementation of George Daniels’ co-axial escapement in 1999.
The biggest highlight in Omega’s history is undoubtedly the moon landing in 1969. Both Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin wore Omega Speedmasters on the lunar surface. But there is so much more to this Swiss powerhouse. They launched the very first dive watch with the Omega Marine, all the way back in 1932. That is some twenty years before the Blancpain Fifty-Fathoms and Rolex Submariner would redefine the category.
Omega has no shortage of hit collections. From the Speedmaster to the Seamaster and from the Constellation to the De Ville, with tons and tons of variations within all of those lines. You may opt for a yellow gold pie-pan Constellation or for a chunky Ploprof. There is something for everyone.
And that is before we go into Omega’s military history, including the Dirty dozen MOD-issued field watch. And we cannot forget James Bond, with his tricked out Seamasters since 1995’s Goldeneye.
No wonder then, that we love Omega so much!
