About this watch

Lets be clear about this its 2019 and the world will celebrate the day a human stood on another world for the first time and that human wore an Omega speedmaster powered by a caliber 861 movement .Now whilst earlier Ed whites regularly sell for over £40,000 these days the actual watch worn when man landed on the moon is still priced by comparison very modestly .

During that year Omega launched this model with the first reference to NASA and the moon landings and that model was in production for a very short period when the wording on the back changed to what it was to remain for decades.

It is my belief that the sleeper in the world of Speedmasters is this  rare straight writing reference from the moon landings period

This watch is complete and intact, the B2 bezel is in excellent original condition, it has the original Type A3 24 tooth crown. The watch has the correct 316XXXXX million serial number and the movement is pristine and was recently fully serviced by Swiss Time services the only UK Omega approved vintage watch center who at the same time touched up the lume on hands and dial  to complete the stunning appearance of this fantastic watch
