SPEEDMASTER - "FIRST OMEGA IN SPACE" CHRONOGRAPH

LIMITED AND NUMBERED EDITION OF 1962 PIECES

Omega Speedmaster - The only watch qualified for every manned NASA mission.

The very first Omega worn in Space was the Speedmaster that astronaut Wally Schirra wore during his Mercury Atlas 8 mission in October of 1962.

To commemorate the 50th anniversary of the first Speedmaster to orbit the earth, OMEGA has created the Speedmaster "First Omega in Space" in honour of Wally Schirra and his historic wristwatch.

This Speedmaster is a fitting way to celebrate the beginning of an adventure that would ultimately lead to six lunar landings and half a century of space exploration.
