Points of Mention

This watch is sold with its Omega box and Omega paperwork. The watch comes paired with its original Omega full-sized bracelet. The watch is sold in worn, unpolished condition. as you can see it has been kept in fantastic overall condition. The watch dates from July 2021, so comes with its Manufacture's Warranty.


The Watch

Omega was formerly known as the La Generale Watch Co. They were founded by Louis Brandt in La Chaux-de-Fonds in 1848. In 1903 they renamed the company Omega until 1982 when they officially changed their name to Omega SA. They are part of the Swiss Swatch Group. The Omega Speedmaster Professional was made famous for 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.

Here we have a 2021 Omega Speedmaster Professional with a 42mm stainless steel case that has polished and brushed surfaces that lead to the characteristic twisted tapering lugs. The crisp lines transition effortlessly around the case. A lug to lug length of 47mm ensures a comfortable fit on the wrist. A fixed tachymeter sits on its black bezel. The black dial is protected by Sapphire crystal AR coated on the inside, and an outer minute track with slim baton indexes marks the hours. 3 recessed Sub-dials made up of 60 seconds, 30 minutes, and 12 hours. Sword hands and an elegant long central chronograph seconds hand that accurately hits the minute track. The dial has perfect symmetry. Hands and indexes are lumed with Super-Luminova. The screw-down exhibition case back is engraved with “The First watch worn on the Moon” a fitting testament to man's achievements in space. Inside we have the Manually Wound Omega Master Chronometer Calibre 3861 featuring a CO-Axial and column-wheel, COSC certified 26 jewels, 21,600 beats per hour. Decorated rhodium-plated movement with Geneva waves. METAS (Federal Institute of Metrology) also certified this special movement with additional measurements of precision, performance, and anti-magnetic resistance. The continued commitment by Omega to push the envelope of a watch and its movement means it is still the only flight-qualified watch that meets the requirements for EVA (Extravehicular activity) – outperforming quartz watches, with LCD displays, which are vulnerable to temperature changes, and literally, get destroyed when on spacewalks. Fitted on a 20mm Stainless Steel bracelet with a signed clasp that fits the wrist comfortably and also comes with its Omega presentation box and paperwork.


Personal Note

I am excited to finally bring one of the new references to the website, especially when we have a few different examples in to compare against! I personally prefer the older bracelet, however, there is no denying the improved build quality and better fit most will achieve with this new bracelet. The new movement is a welcome upgrade too, whilst I have zero problems with the older calibres, this does feel a world above and with their new retail prices, it only makes sense.
