Description

In 1962, astronaut "Wally" Schirra launched OMEGA into orbit. Today, the Speedmaster "First OMEGA in Space" reprises the classic look inspired by his pioneering watch.

Updated with a Sedna™ gold case, this captivating timepiece features a unique brown polished ceramic bezel ring and a matt chromium nitride tachymeter scale.

The rich brown colour is also included on the subdials and minutes track, which encircles a central opaline silvery dial.

Along with the applied indexes, the hands are all made of Sedna™ gold and contain a mix of "Alpha" and "Baton" designs. The addition of Super-LumiNova on the indexes, and hour and minute hands, delivers superb visibility in dark conditions.

For a unique touch, the caseback includes the original Seahorse emblem, along with special engravings including "THE FIRST OMEGA IN SPACE", "OCTOBER 3, 1962" and "NUMBERED EDITION No."

To complete this remarkable watch, there is a brown leather strap with beige stitching, and a central core driven by the OMEGA calibre 1861.

SednaTM Gold

OMEGA has been using the exclusive 18K SednaTM Gold, its own fiery rose gold alloy, since 2012. Named after Sedna, an orbiting planetoid that has been described as one of the reddest in the solar system, SednaTM Gold not only bears all the standard characteristics of other 18K golds, but it also offers high resistance to the fading of colour and lustre over time. Its unique composition includes copper and palladium for colour and stability.

Sapphire Crystal

To really appreciate the finer details of a timepiece, OMEGA uses synthetic sapphire crystal with a highly scratch-resistant and anti-reflective treatment. Before the machining and finishing processes take place, the sapphire crystals are produced under the Verneuil process, also called flame fusion. It involves the melting of the raw substance using oxyhydrogen flame and the crystallisation of the melted droplets to form a cylinder. Graded 9 on the Mohs-hardness scale (graded 1-10), the resulting sapphire crystals are virtually scratch-proof and very hard, ensuring an unhindered vision at all times.

A new look for your watch

Your watch and strap should go together perfectly, but that doesn't mean you can't experiment with different combinations. Why not mix things up and see what happens? You may discover a look that's as individual as you are.
