The legendary “Moon Watch” – flight-qualified by NASA for manned spaceflight missions in 1965 and the only watch ever to be worn on the moon.

The Speedmaster Professional has luminous hands and hour markers (Super Luminova), a hesalite crystal as used on the original model and a screw-in case-back ensuring water resistance to 50 metres. This limited-edition model has a blue dial with applied Omega logo at 12 o’clock and applied hour markers, a special 1965-2005 engraving in red at 12 o’clock in commemoration of the first space walk and countersunk silvered counters for the chronograph functions and small seconds. The tachymetre on the blue aluminium ring on the steel bezel allows calculation of a vehicle’s speed, a machine’s hourly production etc. An additional touch of exclusivity is provided by a special Gemini 4 mission patch etched on to the watch’s sapphire crystal case back. Limited edition of 2005 numbered pieces.
