27 March, 2019 | On this golden anniversary of the moon landing, Omega is celebrating the occasion with a brand new Speedmaster that has a very special connection to the astronauts and the legacy of that Apollo 11 mission.It is now 50 years since mankind took its first daring steps onto the moon – a moment that changed history (and the limits of possibility) forever. Marking the golden anniversary, Omega has produced a new Limited Edition Speedmaster of 1 014 pieces, delivered with a five-year warranty.
Following the famous design of the Speedmaster BA145.022, this new chronograph has been crafted from an exclusive new 18K gold alloy and is powered by a brand new manual-winding Master Chronometer calibre 3861.
Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin became the first humans to walk on the lunar surface on the 21st of July 1969. Their moonwalk lasted just two and a half hours, but their achievements left a defining footprint on the history of space exploration. It was during this iconic moment that the Omega Speedmaster Professional became the first watch worn on the moon.
