Great news for all the watch enthusiasts there! Omega launches very special all gold Speedmaster – Moonwatch Anniversary Limited Edition to commemorate 50 years of the Moon landing. It’s a reminiscent of the 1969 tribute to celebrate 50th anniversary of Apollo 11 timepiece. This new edition is being presented in their own 18k Moonshine gold, driven by the manual-winding OMEGA Master Chronometer Caliber 3861. With a paler hue than traditional18k yellow gold, Moonshine gold offers high resistance to fading colour and lustre over a period of time.
As said that a watch isn’t about telling time, it’s about your relationship with time. Omega’s association with astronauts and space agencies goes back for half a century. Neil Armstrong became the first human to stand on another world. Buzz Aldrin was 15 minutes behind him, and the Speedmaster Professional became the first watch worn on the lunar surface, which earned it the popular name Moonwatch. From there the journey of this ‘common’ watch to being one of the most sought after watches in the world began.
The new 50th anniversary of Apollo 11 watch reproduces the look of the ‘Professional’ model with a new ‘Moonshine gold’ dial, and burgundy color bezel ring. It has a clear sapphire caseback, but a ring bears the inscription: “Apollo 11- 50th Anniversary – 1969-2019. The First Watch Worn On The Moon” which adds to your style statement.
