Note: watch no longer available
This OMEGA Speedmaster Moonwatch “Apollo XVII” is limited to 1,972 pieces and commemorates the 45th anniversary of the final moon landing in 1972.
The 42 mm stainless steel case features a polished blue ceramic bezel with its tachymeter scale in OMEGA Ceragold™. The dial is also polished blue ceramic with 18K yellow gold indexes and hour-minute “Moon” hands that are coated in Super-LumiNova.
The subdial hands are 18K yellow gold or varnished matt white, and the central chronograph hand is also varnished white with a red tip.
“05:34 GMT” is printed in red indicating the time that Cernan made the final step on the moon, while the 9 o’clock subdial is distinguished by a representation of the God Apollo and the moon – etched in PVD in a chrome colour.
The watch has a stainless steel bracelet and is driven by the iconic OMEGA calibre 1861. The caseback is engraved with “45th ANNIVERSARY”, “Limited Edition” and a unique number. It also has an embossed Apollo XVII patch, “APOLLO XVII” and “a tribute to Gene Cernan”.
Ceragold is the result of a process that allows the incrustation of 18K gold into a ceramic bezel. The bezels made of ceramic and the Ceragold are perfectly smooth to the touch.
Complicated watch with a function for measuring short time periods in addition to its function for permanently displaying hours, minutes and seconds.
