The Omega Speedmaster Professional was made famous by its 6 lunar missions. NASA in 1964 sent out letters to 10 watch brands, asking them to send in a Chronograph. Only four brands responded to NASA’s request, which was: Rolex, Longines-Wittnauer, Hamilton and Omega, comically Hamilton sent in a pocket watch. Having all the specific requirements to achieve precise measurements, Omega continued to be tested with the many manned flights. The dial is protected by Hesalite crystal, all Stainless Steel case with Tachymeter bezel. 3 Subdials 60 seconds, 30 minute and 12 hours. Sword hands and elegant long central chronograph seconds hand, that accurately hits the minute track. Inside we have the Cal.1861, 18 Jewels Hand-Wound Chronograph beating at 21,600 BPH. The screw-down case back is engraved with “Flight - Qualified By NASA for all Manned Space Missions” “The First watch worn on the Moon” a fitting testament to man's achievements in space.
20mm Stainless Steel bracelet with signed clasp fits the wrist comfortably, along with all the additions you would expect with a modern Speedmaster!
