Baselworld 2014: Celebrating the Moon Landing (again)

Baselworld 2014: Celebrating the Moon Landing (again)

Developing further their moon watch heritage, Omega has announced at Basel 2014 a limited edition 45th Anniversary Speedmaster Professional Apollo 11.

Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin were the first to set foot on the moon on the Apollo 11 spacecraft in 2969, and as a result, Omega have released this 42mm titanium and PVD commemorative piece. A laser carefully removes material from the dial to leave behind the subdials and hour markers for a great looking 3D effect.

Rose gold adorns the hour markers and hands while Omega’s own Sedna gold can be found on the bezel which has a matte black ceramic ring. We love the sapphire crystal that is raised to give the watch a vintage look. The brown NATO strap also adds a nice touch to the overall watch. Limited to 1969 pieces, this watch will be priced at USD$7,700.
