Catalogue Note

To commemorate the 40th anniversary of the Apollo 11 mission when Neil Armstrong had landed on the moon, Omega had decided to introduce the "Apollo XI 40th Anniversary" watch in two versions. A stainless version of 7,969 pieces and a platinum version of 69 pieces. The present watch is in in a well preserved condition and its case, bracelet, Omega logo, hands and indexes are all made of platinum. Furthermore, the patches on the caseback and the subsidiary seconds are made out of 18k yellow gold.
To honor the historically important moment of Neil Armstrong stepping on to the moon's surface, Omega had printed 02:56 GMT on the dial.
It is delivered with a Certificate of Authenticity, a yellow gold medal and a presentation box. The present watch is a one of a kind and is even more important because of it's tribute to one of the most dramatic scientific achievements in human history.
