The Omega Speedmaster Collection

The Omega Speedmaster holds a special place in the hearts of watch enthusiasts and space exploration aficionados alike. Introduced in 1957, the Speedmaster quickly gained fame as a chronograph watch with unparalleled precision, durability, and style. Over the years, it has become one of the most iconic and recognizable timepieces in the world, earning the nickname "Moonwatch" for its historic role in space exploration. Keep reading to learn more!
All you need to know about Omega Speedmaster
Originally designed for racing drivers and motorsport enthusiasts, the Speedmaster featured a tachymeter bezel and a highly legible dial with contrasting sub-dials — a design that remains a hallmark of the collection to this day. Its robust construction, precise movement, and chronograph functionality made it an instant favorite among professional athletes, pilots, and adventurers.

However, the defining moment in the Speedmaster's history came in 1965 when NASA selected it as the official watch for its manned space missions. After rigorous testing and evaluation, the Speedmaster became the first watch to be flight-qualified by NASA for all manned space missions, including the Apollo program.
In 1969, during the Apollo 11 mission, astronaut Buzz Aldrin famously wore his Omega Speedmaster while setting foot on the lunar surface, making it the first watch to be worn on the moon. This historic moment cemented the Speedmaster's place in history and elevated it to legendary status among watch enthusiasts worldwide.

The Omega Speedmaster has undergone numerous iterations and advancements over the years, each building upon the heritage of its predecessors while incorporating cutting-edge technology and design. From the classic Speedmaster Professional with its manually wound movement to the modern automatic and Co-Axial variations, the collection offers a wide range of models to suit every taste and preference.
One of the most beloved models within the Speedmaster collection is the Speedmaster Professional "Moonwatch," which faithfully replicates the design and functionality of the original watch worn by astronauts during the Apollo missions. Featuring a 42mm stainless steel case, black dial with luminescent hands and hour markers, and a manual-winding movement, the Speedmaster Professional "Moonwatch" remains a timeless icon of horological history.

In addition to the classic "Moonwatch," the Speedmaster collection includes a variety of other models, such as the Speedmaster Racing, Speedmaster '57, and Speedmaster Skywalker X-33, each offering unique features and design elements to cater to different preferences and lifestyles.

Omega has also introduced numerous special editions and limited-edition models within the Speedmaster collection, paying tribute to significant events, anniversaries, and collaborations. From the Speedmaster Professional "Apollo 11 50th Anniversary" to the Speedmaster "Dark Side of the Moon" series, these special editions offer collectors and enthusiasts the opportunity to own a piece of horological history and innovation.
