Speedmaster Apollo 11 - 50th anniversary
Reach for the moon !
The OMEGA Speedmaster Professional is one of the brand’s most iconic models. Steeped in history, this legendary chronometer was used on all of NASA’s lunar missions.
At the time, astronaut Buzz Aldrin was wearing a Speedmaster Professional, ever since then known by the name of MOONWATCH.
As a fitting celebration of this historic event, Omega has developed a new limited edition of 6969 examples inspired by the Apollo 11 mission. Maison Tollet is pleased to present it to you.
Immediate launch !
3, 2, 1…
Technical ingenuity played a vital role in the success of that lunar mission. Omega is offering a new and equally ingenious design thanks to its 42 mm stainless steel case, surmounted by a black polished ceramic bezel ring [ZrO2] with tachometric scale in Ceragold™.
There is another design innovation with the 18K Moonshine™ gold, which covers the indices, the bezel, the OMEGA logo and nearly all of the hands.
A new alloy, paler than the traditional yellow gold and stronger.
The numeral 11 in 18K Moonshine™ gold set at 11 o’clock is the first homage to Apollo 11.
The sub-dial at 9 o’clock, which depicts Buzz Aldrin climbing down the ladder from the lunar module, is the second one.
This sub-dial in 18K Moonshine™ gold is blackened and laser-engraved.
THE DARK SIDE
On the back of the watch, the centre of the case bears the laser-engraved image of an astronaut’s footprint on lunar soil.
The legendary quote by Neil Armstrong is inscribed in 18K Moonshine™ gold-plated lettering. That’s one small step for a man …
Fitted with the Master Co-Axial 3861 calibre with manual winding and 50-hour power reserve, this 50th anniversary Speedmaster now meets the more stringent criteria of accuracy, chronometric performance and magnetic field resistance of the Master Chronometer standard.
The watch comes in its own ‘ASTRONAUT KIT’ presentation box, including, among other things, a second strap in Velcro and blackened cork. This is reminiscent of the thermal protection panels on the rocket, dating from the era of the Apollo programme, a structure that protected the crew from the intense heat during the launch.
The specialists of Maison Tollet invite you travel
into the space-time of the Apollo 11 MOONWATCH.
You will also be able to take the opportunity to (re)discover the models of the Omega Speedmaster Professional collection.
