Catalogue Note

This third iteration of the Speedmaster, reference ST 105.003, is also known as the Ed White among watch collectors. Even though the Speedmaster was popular among many astronauts such as Jim Lovell and Eugene Cernan, it is Ed White that is most closely associated with this particular reference. Indeed, he wore his Omega during the Gemini IV mission in 1965, which saw White as the first American performing an E.V.A. (Extra vehicular activity) in space. It was only shortly after that the Speedmaster was flight certified by NASA to become the official watch for the Apollo missions and ultimately the first watch that went to the moon.
