As an internationally renowned Swiss brand, Omega is synonymous with stylish, quality and precision. This is a second-to-none brand that has created some of the most excellent timepieces. Due to its high precision and reliability, Omega Speedmaster is the first watch taken to the Moon. That is why the Speedmaster is also known as the Moon Watch.
The Omega Speedmaster, released in 1957 in Omega, was chosen by the NASA for the Project Apollo after passing a rigorous testing by NASA like exposure to extreme temperatures, vacuum, intense humidity, corrosion, shock. It proved to be flight-qualified for every piloted flight. The first watch on the Moon was worn by Buzz Aldrin and survived the troubled Apollo 13 mission. Over years, Breitling has enriched the Speedmaster line with more excellent timepieces. Actually, its contemporary counterparts do not change much, for it is hard to improve on a legend. The most recent model in this stunning watch series is the Omega Speedmaster Apollo 15 40th Anniversary LE, which was launched in 2011 to commemorate the great event that Apollo 15 landed on the moon on July 30, 1971.
The classic Omega Moonwatch is presented in nicely polished and brushed stainless steel case, protected by a doomed shatterproof Hesalite crystal. Its black dial is complemented by a black bezel ring with a tachymetric scale on the bezel. On its dial, there are three subsidiary dials, the small seconds at the nine oclock position, the 12-hour counter at the six oclock position and the 30-minute counter at the three oclock position. This watch is completed with a stainless steel bracelet.
Today, Omega Speedmaster is widely replicated in the industry of replica watches in order to cater for the need of those people who want to experience the splendid styles of the authentic Omega watches but cannot afford them. Besides, a vast variety of replica Omega watches are available at many online stores which upgrade their products regularly to catch the trend.
