Just because the Speedmaster is the only watch ever designed to be on the moon, such a tribute can multiply without ever tiring brand enthusiasts and fans of the models. Let’s look at some of the interesting features of the watch Omega Speedmaster Apollo 17, which is the most original and classic!
Omega has largely based its brand history on some historical facts. The Speedmaster watch went to the moon! More than an anecdote, this event is and will remain a subject for Omega storytelling inexhaustible.
We would remind you in a few words the famous epic of the first Speedmaster watches:
In 1965, the Omega Speedmaster chronograph is approved by NASA for all manned space missions, and took his first steps into space aboard the Gemini 3 mission. The long-awaited miracle occurs and during the Apollo 11 mission.
This unique achievement will be followed by other space missions during which astronauts were equipped with a watch Omega Speedmaster. In total, six Apollo missions were raised on the moon, and the last was the Apollo 17 mission.
The special edition of Omega Speedmaster Apollo 17:
Exit the typical dial Speedmaster model, it has nothing to do: it is the reproduction of the insignia of the mission, which represents man, the future, the flag and modern heritage.
The bust of Apollo is the program itself, but also characterizes the man throughout his life: his intelligence, his wisdom and ambition. The eagle, whose wings are the flag of our country, looking straight ahead, the future, symbolized by the spiral galaxy and Saturn, perhaps to tell us once again that the future of the man is also the planets and stars.
It retains this edition tachometer scale engraved inside the mechanical movement with manual winding caliber 1861. Even the Omega logo is otherwise provided on the watch engraved on the sapphire crystal.
100% original that will appeal to fans of space and astronomical discovery model.
