To celebrate the 40th anniversary of the Apollo 15, Omega has unveiled a limited edition Speedmaster Moonwatch. Only 1,971 pieces will be available and will feature a polished and brushed stainless steel case and bracelet, a black aluminum ring with a tachymeter scale on the bezel and a domed shatterproof hesalite crystal with the Omega symbol etched. Its subdials are neatly arranged in a black background. Also, the watch features blue, white and red colors for the minute track and one each for the 3 subdials – these represent the colors of the Apollo 15 patch. The watch commemorates Apollo 15, the fourth of NASA’s six missions to land on the moon.
The case back is embossed with an image of the Lunar Rover and the words Apollo 15 and 40th Anniversary with the outer circle in black chrome and the letters ‘The First Watch Worn on the Moon’, “July 30, 1971” and the limited edition number engraved.
