The Silver Snoopy is a NASA award given to personnel and suppliers who have contributed towards the success of a mission. Omega was given this award in 1970 in recognition of its role in providing reliable timepieces for use by NASA astronauts, most notably during the near-disastrous Apollo 13 mission, where the watch was crucial to timing the manual activation of a propulsion system that corrected the course of the lunar module.

To commemorate the 50th Anniversary of being given this award, Omega released this watch. It features the new cal. 3861, which adds a co-axial escapement to the movement. Invented by the legendary English watchmaker George Daniels, the co-axial escapement drastically decreases friction in the escapement, reducing the amount of wear the parts experience.

This watch is in mint condition, with the caseback sticker still present.

This watch comes with box and papers.

THE SPEEDMASTER

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 some of 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.

OMEGA

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.
