The Omega Speedmaster (Omega watches) was the first watch worn on the moon. Now, to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the first moon walk, they’ve released a new Apollo 11 tribute chronograph: the Omega Speedmaster Moonwatch. It starts at around $10,000.
“In 1969, a unique gold Speedmaster was created to celebrate the success of Apollo 11. Only 1,014 pieces were made, with numbers 3 – 28 being gifted to NASA’s serving astronauts. Today’s new watch remains true to that sought-after design.”
The new timepiece is available in a couple of styles, “Moonshine” and Stainless Steel.
The manufacturer continues,
“The new OMEGA Master Co-Axial Calibre 3861 takes the next evolutionary step for the famous Moonwatch movement. Crafted with Co-Axial and anti-magnetic technology, it now reaches the superior Master Chronometer standard of precision, chronometric performance and magnetic resistance.”
These watches feature 20mm between lugs and a 42mm case (vs. some previously available smaller options like the Omega 36M).
