Last week we told you about the new Omega Speedmaster released at Baselworld 2014 to commemorate the landing on the moon of the Apollo 11 on July, 1969. We are talking about the Speedmaster Professional Apollo 11 45th Anniversary in a limited edition of 1,969 pieces. Recalling the colors of the moon and the Apollo 11 lunar and command modules, the limited edition timepiece features a grey fully brushed 42 mm grade-2 titanium case with a touch of 18K Omega Sedna gold on the bezel, markers and hands. Another striking element on the design of this watch is the NATO nylon leather lined strap.
The watch is powered by the Omega manual-wound chronograph calibre 1861. As you will see in these live macro images, the dial can look dark brown, light gray or even slightly lavender depending on the lighting conditions or the angle at which the light hits it. The case back is very solid with the traditional engravings of the Apollo 11 mission.
On the wrist, the watch wears true to its size and very comfortably. The wrist presence is unparalleled and we are confident this will be a timepiece that many 'speedy' collectors would like to own.
Sticker Price $7,200 USD. For more info on Omega click here.
