Omega - "First Omega in Space" Speedmaster

| No comment
To commemorate the 50th anniversary of the first Speedmaster to orbit the earth, Omega has recently introduced the Speedmaster “First Omega in Space” in honour of Wally Schirra and his historic wristwatch.
This model recalls the watch that Schirra bought at a jeweller in Houston more than half a century ago.  If you compare it to the current Speedmaster product line, it is easy to notice that this numbered (not limited) edition does not have crown guards and it uses leaf hour and minute hands. Hands are coated with Super-LumiNova.
Inside its 39.70 mm polished, brushed stainless steel case is the hand-winding calibre 1861, which earned its reputation as the movement in the legendary Omega Speedmaster Moonwatch. The bezel ring with tachymetric scale is in black aluminium

The box-form crystal does not use hesalite like the original model did. Instead, Omega opted for a scratch-resistant sapphire crystal.
The watch has a screw-in stainless steel caseback which is embossed withOmega ’s original seahorse emblem, the words “THE FIRST OMEGA IN SPACE” and “OCTOBER 3, 1962”, the date of the Mercury Atlas 8 mission.

The Speedmaster “First Omega in Space” chronograph is presented on a brown leather strap with beige stitching.
