The Omega Speedmaster is one of the most recognisable chronograph designs ever produced. It became known as the 'Moonwatch' after it accompanied astronauts on the Apollo 11 mission, which brought the first ever human to the moon.
Unlike its competitors, Omega has hardly changed the overall aesthetic and functionality of the watch. This means that relatively little separates today's modern Speedmaster from the very watch that went to the moon.
The watch is in mint condition with light marks only, the hesalite crystal has a few light scratches, comes with its inner and outer Missions box set, the inner box is peeling on the interior and especially the cushion which is typical of these older boxes. Also included the booklets, Missions brochure, guarantee card which partially matches the serial one digit isn't correct and is dealer stamped and undated.
Omega is in the unique position of being perhaps the most versatile out of all the watchmakers currently still in operation. Its product lineup includes dive watches, automatic and manual chronographs, as well haute joaillerie works of art. The brand has even demonstrated its high-end watchmaking capabilities by creating complications such as the tourbillon.
Omega's story goes further than just its watches, however. The brand has had a long and rich history of being called upon in times of need, and has sold watches to everyone from the British Royal Flying Corps during the First World War to NASA during the Space Race. More recently, Omega has been known as the exclusive supplier of watches to James Bond.
