In July 1969, two astronauts of NASA, Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin, landed on the moon, becoming the first time in human history to set foot in outer space. The man on the surface of the celestial body successfully fulfilled the challenge put forward by President John F. Kennedy a few years ago. This moon landing is considered one of the greatest technological feats in human history, and the glory of the OMEGA watch worn on the astronaut’s wrist at the time witnessed this historic moment.
When he set foot on the moon, Buzz Aldrin wore an Omega Speedmaster professional chronometer outside the space suit, while Neil Armstrong left his Speedmaster in the lunar module as an in-cabin electronics. Reliable backup of the timing system.
Today, Omega has launched the 45th Anniversary Edition of the Speedmaster professional moon watch ‘Apollo 11’ to celebrate the 45th anniversary of the first human landing on the moon and pay tribute to the first iconic Speedmaster Chronograph to land on the moon.
The 45th anniversary of the ‘Apollo 11’ limited edition watch uses a 42mm gray frosted case made of grade 2 titanium and is embellished with gold tones, reminiscent of the moon, the Apollo 11 lunar module and the command module. colour.
The black PVD dial features a 30-minute, 12-hour chronograph dial and a small seconds dial. The dial is embossed with a special laser process on the Omega brand logo, series name, numerals and time scale on the small dial, highlighting the unique design. The hour, hour, minute, second and sub-dial hands are carefully crafted from 18K red gold, while the central chronograph seconds hand is plated with red gold. The hour, minute, chronograph seconds, hour markers, and the two dot markers at 12 o’clock are covered with a Super-LumiNova luminous coating, which emits green light in low-light environments. Plano-convex abrasion-resistant sapphire crystal with double-sided anti-reflective treatment provides comprehensive protection for the dial. The 18K Sedna ™ gold bezel has a matte black ceramic ring for a more striking combination of different shades. The ceramic ring bears the Speedmaster’s signature tachymeter scale.
