Omega Speedmaster Professional Moonwatch

Unboxing of the legendary Omega Speedmaster Professional Moonwatch.

For well over half a century, the OMEGA Speedmaster has witnessed events that have tested the limits of physical endurance and human courage, including the first manned lunar landing in July of 1969 and every one of NASA’s piloted missions since March of 1965.

THE WORLD’S MOST FAMOUS CHRONOGRAPH

The OMEGA Speedmaster Professional Chronograph has a unique place in the history of space exploration as the only piece of equipment used in all of NASA’s piloted space missions from Gemini to the current International Space Station program. When Buzz Aldrin stepped on the lunar surface in 1969, he was wearing a Speedmaster Professional, the chronograph that has been known as the Moonwatch ever since.

With its black dial and tachymeter scale, this 42 mm chronograph was designed to stand out. The indexes and central hour and minute hands are coated in Super-LumiNova. A hesalite crystal protects the dial enhanced with a 30-minute recorder, 12-hour recorder and small seconds sub-dial.

A CLASSIC MOVEMENT

Since its introduction in 1957, the Speedmaster has been characterized by its precision, readability and robustness. Until 1968 it was powered by the calibre 321 which was later changed to calibre 861. This was replaced with an enhanced version when OMEGA introduced a high-grade rhodium-plated finish on the movement, resulting in calibre 1861 and the more embellished 1863, both of which are hand-wound. Today, the timepiece is powered by virtually the same hand-wound movement that powered the timepieces NASA’s astronauts wore on the Moon.

J”ai acheté la mienne pendant les grèves de 1995, chez un Joaillier, neuve, elle valait 1400 euros, et je la préfère à celle de cette vidéo, car la montre était monté encore à l’époque chez Lémania, qui actuellement n’existe plus, Mr Hayek décédé depuis, l’a supprimé pour fonder la Manufacture Breguet.
Omega fait payer des choses inutiles, le coffret doit valoir à lui tout seule bien 800 euros, le sceau une 50 euros. Avant on achetait une montre, pas un coffret, des bracelets qui si vous le montez mal, vous perdez la montre.
Maintenant en France, elle vaut 4500 euros, dans les années 1970 450 euros de très meilleure qualité que celle à 4500e, une honte ces prix, du grand n’importe quoi.

Beautiful Timepiece…Omega absolutely nailed it with that design…Long may it remain…

Embo says:

Who’s watching this as a poor college student ?
I hope having one someday… 🙂

Jason de Souza says:

is it easy to change the straps?

Vadim Don says:

This watch is now more expensive because of the box with additional accessories not because the watch has some improvements in any way. It used to be 2800 £ in uk now with the new box is over 3k.

redazi1 says:

A watch with no date it s not a watch.you don t need chrono ,expensive watch and not worth it

DubaiWatchGuy says:

What is the music that starts around 4:30 ?

The Xardas says:

That fucking box. almost 5kg. Huge and they sell it separately for $700+. WTF I had very nice watches that cost less then that monstrosity. Who needs it? I barely was able to find a space for it at home.
