Omega Celebrates 50 Years of the Apollo Moon Landing With Special Edition Speedmaster
If it was good enough for the hallowed wrists of Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin, the Omega Speedmaster, aka “The Moonwatch” is probably good enough for you.
The new limited-edition Omega Apollo 11 50th Anniversary timepiece is just the latest Speedmaster to pay tribute to the moon landing as a limited edition release.
Powered by the new Caliber 3861 movement, it has a 42mm stainless steel case and a 18-karat Moonshine Gold bezel with black ceramic ring and Ceragold tach scale.
The main dial is gray, with black sub-dials, a black track on the periphery, and a Moonshine Gold laser engraving of Aldrin triumphantly stepping onto the lunar surface at 9 o’clock.
A second laser engraving of an astronaut’s footprint can be found on the moon-surface caseback, along with the famous quote, “THAT’S ONE SMALL STEP FOR A MAN – ONE GIANT LEAP FOR MANKIND.”
It also has a matching steel bracelet and arrives in a presentation box with an additional Velcro strap with black-coated cork, a lunar module display stand, two mission patches, two engraved plates, and a strap-changing tool.
The Omega Speedmaster Apollo 11 50th Anniversary Watch is available in stores in July 2019 and limited to 6,969 pieces.
