This avant-garde and rare Omega DeVille "Super Emerald" watch was inspired by the designs that Andrew Grima created for Omega and presented in 1971. It has a striking retro design nicknamed the "Sugar Cube".

Grima, possibly the most prominent jeweler of his generation, counted Queen Elizabeth II among his clients. The Emerald line is distinguished by the generous proportions of its precious stone emerald crystals, quartz, or mineral glass.

Initially, the pieces were reserved for the high-end Constellation range, but as the Emerald line expanded, they were increasingly seen in the entry-level De Ville line. The Emerald line was only produced by OMEGA until 1973, but left a lasting impression.

Mr. Grima was honored with an impressive array of awards, including twelve Diamonds-International awards. He was the first jeweler to win the Queen's Award for Export in 1966 and is the only jeweler to have won the Duke of Edinburgh Prize for Elegant Design. In 1970, almost at the same time he was designing for Omega, he was appointed jeweler to Her Majesty the Queen. Omega commissioned him to create a cutting-edge collection with great aesthetic appeal. Grima was given a free hand and chose to stick to one principle: he would create the watch around the dial, regardless of its shape or dimension.
