Omega – Speedmaster Apollo 11 50th Anniversary Limited Edition

By Roberta Naas |  September 2 2019


Commemorating the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 moon landing and man’s first steps on the moon, Omega has created a truly special limited-edition watch. Omega’s Speedmaster played an instrumental role in the space program and was the first watch worn on the moon. To honor that historic walk, Omega produced a special 18K yellow gold watch in an edition of 1,014 pieces released in 1969, presenting numbers three through 28 to NASA’s astronauts.

That original series serves as the inspiration for this new watch. The new Apollo 11 watch is made using a gold alloy that Omega developed to recall the pale hues of moonlight.

The 42mm watch is powered by Omega’s new manual-winding Master Chronometer caliber 3861 with co-axial escapement and silicon balance spring. The caseback is engraved with “1969-2019” and “The First Watch Worn on the Moon.” An ocean-blue ring surrounds a partial world map that depicts the view of the rocket’s liftoff point in Cape Canaveral, Florida.

Price: $34,600 in 18K Moonshine gold
