Description

Omega Speedmaster is a line of chronograph wristwatches produced by Omega. While chronographs have been around since the late 1800s, Omega first introduced this line of chronographs in 1957. Since then, many different chronograph movements have been marketed under the Speedmaster name. Astronaut Walter Schirra was the first person to wear one in space in 1962 during his Mercury-Atlas 8 mission. The manual winding Speedmaster Professional or "Moonwatch" is the best-known and longest-produced; it was worn during the first American spacewalk as part of NASA's Gemini 4 mission, and was the first watch worn by an astronaut walking on the Moon during the Apollo 11 mission. The Speedmaster Professional remains one of several watches qualified by NASA for spaceflight, and is still the only one qualified for EVA. The Speedmaster line also includes other models, including analog-digital and automatic mechanical watches.


The Speedmaster 1760016 is just as you would expect from the collection, but it stands out with its enlarged cushion-shaped case.


Honest Vintage: The Greg Selch Collection

A native New Yorker from a family of connoisseurs, Greg Selch has collected watches for over 20 years, among many other things. Over the years, Selch has become well-known for his passion: “orphan watches” as well as well-worn watches with patina, for which a term has been created:  #selchism.
