Description

In 1965, Omega Speedmaster was chosen by NASA as the best chronograph for astronauts to wear in space, which launched the Speedmaster's historic success as a "Moonwatch." The Omega Speedmaster was then worn on all six lunar missions. The piece presented today dates even further back to 1961 and features a stainless steel case and bracelet, a black and beige dial with a tachymeter bezel as well as a chronograph feature.
