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 first Speedmaster Professional model with moon phases (and date), nicknamed “Speedymoon”, was sold from the end of 1985 for three years. The Speedymoon was neither numbered, nor officially limited, but its production remained small, with an estimation of 1’300 examples. The moon phases and the date complications entailed a modification of the calibre 861, which was renamed 866.
