On 21 July 1969, two NASA astronauts became the first human beings ever to set foot on another world, one of humankind’s crowning achievements. A special chronograph celebrates the original Omega Speedmaster Moonwatch Replica, which was strapped to Buzz Aldrin’s spacesuit.
The elegant Omega Speedmaster replica Professional Apollo 11 45th wristwatch commemorates the first lunar landing and celebrates its link to the iconic chronograph that was part of the adventure. Recalling the colours of the moon and the Apollo 11 lunar and command modules, this Limited Edition timepiece features a 42 mm completely brushed case with a touch of gold. The case is crafted from lightweight grade 2 titanium – a choice that was inspired by the troves of titanium ore that cover the Moon.
The black PVD dial, with its 30-minute and 12-hour recorders and small seconds sub-dial, has been produced using a special laser which creates the design elements on the watch’s face by removing the material surrounding the name, sub-dial numerals and hour markers. The indexes and hour, minute, seconds and sub-dial hands are crafted from 18K red gold and the central chronograph hand is red gold-plated.
