Omega Speedmaster Moonwatch Apollo XVII Watch

Omega still carries on manufacturing and dedicating exquisite timepieces to those who have had the tremendous occasion to land on the surface of the moon – the Speedmaster Moonwatch series is the one dedicated to the events.

The brand’s most recent creation is the Omega Speedmaster Moonwatch Apollo XVII, a limited edition timepiece which celebrates the 40th anniversary of the most recent moon landing, in 1972, whose hero was Eugene Cernon, the last man to have set foot on Earth’s natural satellite.

Eugene Cernon is actually one of Omega’s brand ambassadors of today. The timepiece will boast a different dial than the others in the series, a sterling silver engraving of the Apollo XVII mission patch. The hands and markers were kept the same. In addition, the limited edition wristwatch will also boast with a unique caseback, a 42 mm wide stainless steel case and bracelet, alongside the caliber 1861 manually wound chronograph movement which used to be mounted in the timepieces that went to the moon.

The Omega Speedmaster Moonwatch Apollo XVII is a limited edition piece, as you’ve probably realized already, which will reportedly be manufactured in 1972 units, reminding of the year when the moon was last touched, in a physical manner, by Eugene Cernon.
