Omega Speedmaster Moonwatch Chronograph 39.7 mm – a timepiece with extraterrestrial qualities
As "First Omega in Space", the Moonwatch chronograph from the Speedmaster Collection has not only proved its qualities on earth but also in space. Neither the weightlessness in space nor the significantly weaker gravity on the moon compared to the earth was unable to harm this legendary timekeeper. The Speedmaster model which should gain global fame as Moonwatch chronograph was inspired by the watch the astronaut Walter "Wally" Schirra has worn at his first space mission during his six-time round-the-world flight on October 3rd in 1962. The "Moonwatch" owes its name to the fact that Buzz Aldrin wore such a model wrapped around the wrist of the spacesuit when he set foot on the moon together with Neil Armstrong on July 21st in 1969 and thus wrote a new chapter in the history of mankind.
A classic of watch history – with a design which has remained unchanged
With its design that is just as functional as it is attractive, the Omega Speedmaster Moonwatch Chronograph 39.7 mm has become a true classic in watch history which look has not much changed up to now. Significant features are the chronograph dial with three sub-dials, the two pushers above and below the crown, the detailed minute scale and the tachymeter scale that covers the edge of the case around the sapphire glass. In the meantime, the model by Omega is available in many versions with different colours of dial and strap as well as in different material combinations. The movement of the caliber 1861 is furnished with manual winding and a power reserve of up to 48 hours. Although chronographs normally appear rather sportive this classic can even be the perfect jewelry in combination with a business outfit or the evening dress – given the corresponding colour and material choice.
