The Speedmaster is one of OMEGA’s most iconic timepieces, having been a part of all six moon landings. Celebrating the 50th anniversary of Apollo 11 in 1969, OMEGA presents this Limited Edition model of 6,969 pieces.
The watch includes a 42 mm case in stainless steel with a polished 18K Moonshine™ Gold bezel. The bezel ring is polished black ceramic [ZrO2] with an OMEGA Ceragold™ tachymeter scale. There is a varnished grey and black dial with all indexes and hands in 18K Moonshine™ Gold – except the central chronograph seconds hand, which is PVD-coated in Moonshine Gold. A unique hour marker is positioned at 11 o’clock, and there is a distinctive 9 o’clock subdial in 18K Moonshine™ Gold with a laser-engraved image of Buzz Aldrin climbing down onto the lunar surface.
The NAIAD LOCK caseback reveals numerous engravings, while a laser-engraved astronaut’s footprint is positioned on a medallion under the sapphire crystal. 18K Moonshine™ Gold-plated lettering includes the quote: “THAT’S ONE SMALL STEP FOR A MAN” and “ONE GIANT LEAP FOR MANKIND”.
The watch is presented on a polished-brushed metallic bracelet and comes with an additional Velcro strap with black-coated cork. Inside, it is powered by the OMEGA Master Chronometer Calibre 3861.
