THE SPEEDMASTER PROFESSIONAL MOONWATCH

For well over half a century, the OMEGA Speedmaster has witnessed events that have tested the limits of physical endurance and human courage, including the first manned moon landing in July 1969 and every lunar mission since that time.

TIMELESS DESIGN

The watch features an asymmetrical 42 mm case in stainless steel – and is built in the classic 4th generation style that was worn by Apollo 11 astronauts during history’s first moon landing. Choose it with hesalite glass with an embossed Seahorse caseback, or the model with sapphire-crystal glass on both sides.

#MOONWATCH

"…the timepiece became known as The Moonwatch, the first watch worn on the Moon."

WE CHOOSE TO GO TO THE MOON

President John F. Kennedy’s challenge to send an astronaut to the Moon was particularly audacious considering that, when he made his famous “We choose to go to the moon” speech in Texas in 1962, only one American had been in space for a grand total of 15 minutes and 28 seconds. Of course, his objective was eventually achieved and the OMEGA Speedmaster was there for the first famous steps.

With its black dial and tachymeter scale, this 42 mm chronograph was designed to stand out. The indexes and central hour and minute hands are coated in Super-LumiNova. A hesalite crystal protects the dial enhanced with a 30-minute recorder, 12-hour recorder and small seconds sub-dial. The stainless steel case is presented on a matching bracelet or a black leather strap.

"Since its introduction in 1957, the Speedmaster has been characterized by its precision, readability and robustness"

A CLASSIC MOVEMENT

CALIBRE OMEGA 1861

Calibre 1861

Until 1968, the Speedmaster was powered by the iconic calibre 321 which was later changed to calibre 861. This was updated with the high-grade rhodium-plated finish of the calibre 1861 and the more embellished 1863. Today, the timepiece is driven by virtually the same hand-wound movement trusted by NASA’s astronauts on the Moon.

"The Speedmaster Professional is still the only watch certified by NASA for use on an EVA (Extra Vehicular Activity)."

SPECIAL PRESENTATION BOX

Each of the four timepieces in this family is offered with a special presentation box which includes two additional straps - a “NATO” strap and a strap for astronauts. A tool to change the bracelets and instructions for how to do so are also included along with a Speedmaster loupe, a metal plate and a book highlighting the adventures of the Speedmaster.
