For well over half a century, the OMEGA Speedmaster
has witnessed events that have tested the limits of physical endurance
and human courage, including the first manned moon landing in July 1969
and every lunar mission since that time.
THE WORLD’S MOST FAMOUS CHRONOGRAPH
The OMEGA Speedmaster Professional Chronograph has a unique place in the
history of space exploration as the only piece of equipment used in all of NASA’s
piloted space missions from Gemini to the current International Space Station
program. When Buzz Aldrin stepped on the lunar surface in 1969, he was wearing a

LIKE NO OTHER CHRONOGRAPH
With its black dial and tachymeter scale, this 42 mm
chronograph was designed to stand out. The indexes and central hour and
minute hands are coated in Super-LumiNova. A hesalite crystal protects

seconds sub-dial. The stainless steel case is presented on a matching
bracelet or a black leather strap.
A CLASSIC MOVEMENT
Until 1968, the Speedmaster was powered by the iconic
calibre 321 which was later changed to calibre 861. This was updated
with the high-grade rhodium-plated finish of the calibre 1861 and the
more embellished 1863. Today, the timepiece is driven by virtually the
same hand-wound movement trusted by NASA’s astronauts on the Moon.
