At 02:56 UTC on 21 July 1969, two NASA astronauts became the first human beings ever to set foot on the surface of a celestial body. The feat has been described as one of mankind’s crowning technological achievements and OMEGA was literally on hand on this historic occasion. Strapped around his spacesuit, Buzz Aldrin had an OMEGA Speedmaster Professional chronograph.

The OMEGA Speedmaster 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.

Another striking feature of the Speedmaster Professional Apollo 11 45th Anniversary Limited Edition watch is its brown coated nylon fabric “NATO” strap which is inspired by the robust straps that have equipped the timepieces issued to military personnel since the Second World War.

This timepiece has been produced in an edition limited to 1,969 pieces; a number that reflects the significant year that the first humans walked on the Moon. The Speedmaster Professional Apollo 11 45th Anniversary Limited Edition wristwatch is fitted with calibre 1861, a manual-winding chronograph movement. It is offered with a two-year warranty and a special presentation box. This remarkable timepiece is water resistant to 5 bar (50 metres / 167 feet). [Link]
