The Speedmaster was not originally designed for space exploration. After anonymously outperforming a selection of other watches under extreme, harsh and rigorous testing, NASA selected the Omega Speedmaster Professional to accompany the Apollo 11 astronauts, thus attaining its now famous and legendary status as the first watch to be worn on the moon. This year humankind celebrates the 50-year anniversary of the first Moon landing and we are pleased to present this magnificent commemorative gold 'Moon Watch', numbered 212, in excellent condition, offered by the original owner's daughter.
