OMEGA Speedmaster
105.012-65 “Tropical”

Sold

The Omega Speedmaster, born in 1957, is one of the most iconic wristwatches ever produced. Since 1965, it has been the choice of space programs for over half a century and has been associated with some of mankind’s greatest space adventures, earning it the name The Moonwatch. 

Naturally, beyond its professional use for more than sixty years, the Speedmaster, with its incredible history and its timeless design, has appealed to a much wider public throughout the world.

The reference ST 105.012 is of major historical importance as it one the few Speedmaster references worn by astronauts on the Moon, notably by Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin on Apollo 11. Really the “First watch on the Moon”.

Contrary to the legend according to which the reference ST 105.012 was an evolution of reference ST 105.003, it was rather an evolution of the reference ST 105.002, since it was produced before ST 105.003. Among the 4 different case sub-references (corresponding to the year of manufacture of the case), one can find the 105.012-65.

#24.013.xxx is in good condition and its parts are correct. The resulting Watch Score is 7.4, impacted by the lack of a steel bracelet. An Extra Score of +1.0 is attributed for its special tropical dial.

Our WATCHFID Rating is 8.4.
