A few weeks ago the Head Tart finally took delivery of his Apollo 11 40th Anniversary Omega Speedmaster. Here are a few photos from the handover.
This 40th Anniversary model utilises Omega’s calibre 1861, the same movement used in the original Speedmaster Professional.
The Apollo 11 mission patch is also on the caseback along with the words, “THE FIRST WATCH WORN ON THE MOON”, the limited edition number (0000/7969), and “July 21, 1969”, the date Armstrong and Aldrin first stepped onto the moon’s surface at 02:56, the time which is printed on the dial.
Congratulations to the proud new owner of this LE Speedy!
