Omega Speedmaster | Starry Sky and The Moon | 20 pieces Limited Edition | Poster-Art
Starry Sky and The Moon | Omega Speedmaster | Moonwatch
Artist: Robert Topulos
Edition: Limited to 20 signed art prints
The Omega Speedmaster - affectionately called "Speedy" by its legion of fans - was the first timepiece on the moon and is still the only watch ever to reach the moon.
Since that day, the same standard version of the Omega Speedmaster Professional has accompanied all American astronauts during their flights in space and reconnaissance missions to the moon – from the Gemini spacecraft to Apollo and the spacelab missions and eventually today’s Space Shuttle program. This legendary wrist chronograph was developed in 1942 and declared "spaceworthy" by NASA in 1965.
The story goes that a number of NASA employees bought several standard watches of different brands to test them in rigorous conditions such as temperature, vibration, shock, absence of gravity and magnetic fields - and the Speedmaster was the only one that proved to be up to the job. The "chosen one" finally set foot on the moon on July 21, 1969 on the wrist of Neil Armstrong, during the first manned mission to land on the moon.
