Moonwatch Co‑Axial Master Chronometer Moonphase Chronograph

There is 1 product.

The Omega Speedmaster Moonwatch Co-Axial Master Chronometer Moonphase Chronograph is one of Omega's most famous watches. The Omega Speedmaster was named Moonwatch because it was the first watch on the moon. The astronaut Buzz Aldrin wore it on his wrist during the moon landing in 1969. NASA had previously carried out extensive tests on the watch, including heat resistance, weightlessness and strong magnetic fields. Even today, the Omega Speedmaster Moonwatch is still anti-magnetic up to 15 000 gauss. In keeping with the moon landing, this model has two small high-resolution moons in the moon-phase display at 6 o'clock. The case is made of Liquidmetal, which is harder than steel but still fuses with ceramics, giving the watch extra protection against corrosion and scratches. The diameter is 44.25mm. The watch glass is made of scratch-resistant anti-reflective sapphire glass and is water-resistant to 10 bar (100 meters). The date display at three o'clock is shown by a small dial with hands. The power reserve is 60 hours.

The story of an extraordinary moonwatch

Chronographs from Omega were already being manufactured at the end of the 18th century The first model of the Omega Speedmaster Chronographs was released in 1957. Since then, little has changed in the model. Originally the watch was not made for space and moon missions, but as a sports and racing watch in the 1920s and 1930s. Omega was and still is the official timekeeper of the Olympic Games. After a series of qualification tests, NASA decided to use the Omega Speedmaster Chronograph for its astronauts in space. The Apollo 13 mission saved the watch's life, and after all instruments failed, the astronauts used the watch to control the lunar module's landing system. Omega received an award in recognition of its exceptional professionalism and commitment to manned spaceflight. Today, the Omega Speedmaster is still part of the equipment used by NASA astronauts.
