Omega watches are as solid as you’ll find and they have achieved that classic status so hard to reach. Many who consider themselves serious watch aficionados have multiple Omega watches in their case. To celebrate the 40th anniversary of the Apollo 11 moon landing, Omega has created this limited run of 7969 watches.
The Apollo 11 Limited Edition is a must have for all serious collectors. It’s quite similar to the Omega Speedmaster Professional, however it is powered by OMEGA’s clibre 1861, which is a descendent of the calibre 321 which was used in the original Speedmaster Professional Moonwatch.
The small seconds counter is a gold medallion featuring the famous Apollo 11 mission patch. On the dial, the exact time that Neil Armstrong made his first step on the moon is marked in red: 02:56 GMT.
