A HISTORY OF TIME: SPEEDMASTER
The Omega: Speedmaster 1957 watch, is the iconic watch that helped cement its position for Omega. The Speedmaster was built to withstand the toughest conditions, not just on this planet but beyond. When NASA was planning its first manned missions into space, it needed a timepiece for its astronauts that could survive the trip. Once the rigorous tests were completed by NASA, only one survived: The Omega. NASA issued the watch to each member of it’s Gemini space mission, and, several years later, Buzz Aldrin could be seen sporting the watch in the forever famous Lunar Landing.
Featured in this print is the OMEGA Speedmaster Black Strap. The Omega Speedmaster print features all the details that have become the hallmarks of the watch. Displayed in the print are the triple-register chronograph layout, the high-contrast index markers, and the domed Plexiglas crystal. The dial is an example of perfect balance and proportions. Expertly crafted and hand illustrated before being pressed on 100% FSC certified cover stock, this print features the straight lugs, broad arrow hands, and the steel bezel.
