Wilde, a well-known author in the 19th-century Victorian era, who penned masterpieces that includes “The Happy Prince,” “The Picture of Dorian Gray” and “Salome.” Many of his works are translated in other languages including Japanese, and greatly influenced famous fake omega watches Japanese writers such as Soseki Natsume and Junichiro Tanizaki. Wilde had been engaged in an affair with the son of Marquess of Queensberry since 1891, but when the outraged marquess denounced him as a homosexual, Wilde sued the man for libel.
