To commemorate 45 years since commemorates the first lunar landing, Omega released the Speedmaster Professional Apollo 11 45th Anniversary Limited Edition.
This Limited Edition of the Speedy features a 42 mm completely brushed grey grade 2 titanium case with just a touch of Sedna gold for the bezel which integrates a matt black ceramic ring with a tachometer scale. Sedna is the name chosen by Omega for its special rose gold alloy blending gold, palladium and copper.
The black PVD dial has 30-minute and 12-hour chronograph counters with a small seconds sub-dial at 9 o'clock. A special laser technique was used to remove the material surrounding the name, sub-dial numerals and hour markers. The indexes and hour, minute, seconds and sub-dial hands are crafted from red gold and the central chronograph hand is red gold-plated.
The Speedmaster Professional Apollo 11 45th Anniversary Limited Edition is matched to a brown coated nylon fabric NATO strap.
The Speedmaster Professional Apollo 11 45th Anniversary Limited Edition (ref. 318.104.22.168.06.001) is powered by famous manual-winding chronograph movement Calibre 1861 that was worn on the Moon. The movement is not visible as the screw-in caseback is embossed with the iconic Seahorse emblem and black engravings on the outer circle.
To remind the year of the the first manned lunar landing, only 1969 models of this timepiece will be produced. The retail price will be - without taxes - Swiss Francs 6,400.
