Ever since Buzz Aldrin stepped on the lunar surface fifty years ago wearing his Professional Speedmaster, it has been an icon.
It is the first timepiece to be on the Moon. However, it is not the only reason that makes the Speedmaster a highly coveted watch.
Like the revolutionary Rolex Daytona, the watch combines both a classic and modern design that stood the test of time. It only ages gracefully, acquiring further acclamation as the years go by.
However, the Omega Speedmaster Moonwatch is not only notable as “The First Watch on the Moon”.
But the watch also excelled in terms of design and innovation. The Speedmaster was the first timepiece to sport a tachymeter on the bezel isolated from the dial.
Undoubtedly, the Omega Speedmaster Moonwatch is an ultimate chronograph that is prized by collectors across the world for many reasons.
