Omega: Speedmaster Moonwatch “First Omega In Space”

The first Moonwatch returns.

Fans of the Omega Speedmaster know: Before the NASA 1965 appointed the chronograph as the official equipment of its astronauts, a speedmaster flew into space three years earlier. The astronaut Walter Schirra wore his private speedmaster when he circled the Earth six times on October 3, 1962 with the Starship Sigma 7. Now Omega is bringing the Speedmaster Moonwatch “first Omega in Space” numbered edition to the market that is inspired by this event and this legendary Speedmaster.

The 39.70 mm-large housing is made of Sednagold and carries a brown ceramic bezel with matching brown leather strap. As with the historic model, the housing floor adorns the Seahorse Medallion of 1962. On the two-color dial, the same hands sit for hours and minutes as with Schirras Speedmaster. And also inside, Omega puts on history: the drive for the chronograph and the time display provides the well-known hand-winding caliber 1861, which already worked in the legendary Moonwatch of 1969. Unlike the engraving “numbered edition No.” On the housing floor, this speedmaster is only numbered, but not limited to a certain number of pieces. For 14,500 euro Anyone interested can buy a golden Moonwatch. mg
