THE SPEEDMASTER APOLLO 17 45TH ANNIVERSARY LIMITED EDITIONS

Throughout its legendary history, the OMEGA Speedmaster has been worn and trusted on all six moon landings. The last of those missions was Apollo 17, which touched down in 1972. For the 45th anniversary, OMEGA has produced two captivating Limited Edition models which pay tribute to the mission and its Commander, Eugene Cernan.

THE STAINLESS STEEL MODEL

The stainless steel model, limited to 1,972 pieces, features blue ceramic for the bezel and dial. 18K yellow gold is found throughout the design and, most vividly, the 9 o'clock subdial features a representation of the God Apollo and the moon – etched in PVD in a chrome colour.

A TRIBUTE TO GENE CERNAN

The Apollo 17 mission was commanded by Gene Cernan, who passed away in 2017. Cernan left history's last footprints on the lunar surface and "05:34 GMT" is printed in red on the dial of each model, indicating the exact time he took the final step.

Super-LumiNova coats the 18K yellow gold indexes and hour-minute hands.

THE YELLOW GOLD MODEL

Limited to 272 pieces, the 18K yellow gold model has a brown leather strap and blue ceramic for the bezel and dial. Maximising innovation, OMEGA has used an exclusive electroforming process to create the gold representation of the God Apollo and the moon on the 9 o'clock subdial.

The iconic calibre 1861 is used to power the Apollo XVII models.

THE APOLLO XVII CASEBACK

Each caseback features a mission patch and is engraved with "45th ANNIVERSARY", "Limited Edition" and "a tribute to Gene Cernan". For the gold model, the central 18K white gold medallion uses an electroforming process to add the 18K yellow gold details.
