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.
In 1985, Omega introduced the first steel Speedmaster with a sapphire display caseback and the caliber 863 with luxury finish. This was a limited series of 1’000 copies, with an individual number engraved on the caseback bezel. A second numbered edition was produced in 1988-1989 with a yellow-plated caliber 863. Then, the display back Speedmaster remained in the catalogs, but in unlimited production (reference 3592.50, then 3572.50).
