Catalogue Note

The original Alaska Project from the early 1970s was designed for the purpose to withstand extreme temperature variations that NASA astronauts may encounter on the moon. For this reason, Omega had specifically designed a removable case in red anodized aluminium that would theoretically resist temperature from negative 150 degree Celsius to 260 degree Celsius.
In 2008, Omega launched a limited series of 1,970 watches to commemorate the prototypes of the Alaska Project, such as the present lot.  Offered in a very good overall condition, the Alaska Project is a great example that depicts the rich history of Omega’s connection with Nasa.
