LAWRENCE OF ARABIA’ OMEGA AVIATOR

Post by koimaster » January 21st 2022, 10:26am

The Omega aviator chronograph in question was worn by Thomas Edward Lawrence, the British archaeologist, military strategist, and writer, known as Lawrence of Arabia. He wore this watch throughout his famous Arabian campaign in the early 20th century and it was revived by Omega just a few years ago...

Thomas Edward Lawrence was born in England in 1888. Medieval military architecture was his first interest, which he pursued and studied throughout Palestine, Syria, and France. He later published a thesis on the subject, for which he received first-class honours in history from the University of Oxford in 1910.

While studying at Oxford and working as a protégé to Oxford archaeologist D. G. Hogarth, he was awarded a travelling fellowship from Magdalen College and went on to join expeditions throughout Asia and Africa, particularly the Hittite settlement of Carchemish on the Euphrates, which he worked on from 1911-1914. It was while living in Cairo in 1914, he really came to appreciate the culture, history, and environment of the region.

“Your heart was warm and happy

With the lilt of Irish laughter

Every day and in every way

Now forever and ever after."
