OMEGA Description :
‘The OMEGA Speedmaster is one of OMEGA’s most iconic timepieces. Having been a part of all six lunar missions, the legendary Speedmaster is an impressive representation of the brand’s adventurous pioneering spirit.
This limited edition Speedmaster Moonwatch “Apollo XVII” commemorates the 40th anniversary of the final lunar mission in December 1972. It features a 925 silver dial embossed with the same design as the Apollo XVII patch. A small seconds dial, 30-minute recorder and 12-hour recorder grace the dial along with a central chronograph hand.
The bezel, with its black aluminium tachymetric ring, is mounted on a 42 mm stainless steel case, and is presented on a stainless steel bracelet. At the heart of this chronograph is OMEGA’s mechanical calibre 1861, a manual-winding movement. The Speedmaster Moonwatch “Apollo XVII” was produced in an edition limited to 1,972 pieces.
