About the model
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.
OMEGA celebrated the 150th anniversary of the company’s establishment (1848-1998) by bringing out a limited series of 150 Replica-type watches in solid yellow gold on a leather strap with a gold folding clasp or on a bracelet entirely in gold.
Apart from the precious metal, this version differs from the steel Replica model that commemorated the first Speedmaster of 1957 by the use of such luxury components as sapphire-crystal glass and the caliber 1863 movement.
