Omega Speedmaster Day-Date Yellow Gold 323.53.40.44.02.001

No chronograph wristwatch has a more storied history than the Omega Speedmaster Professional. After rigorous testing by NASA, it was flight-qualified for every piloted flight. Its distinctions include all six lunar. The Speedmaster features in some fascinating tales.

The most memorable moment in the Speedmaster's history was undoubtedly 21 July 1969 at 02:56 GMT, when it recorded man's first steps on the Moon's surface. The Apollo 11 mission was a milestone in history and the Speedmaster became the first watch (and the only watch since) to be worn on the Moon. With this unique accomplishment came a unique nickname: the Moonwatch.

In April 1970, the Omega Speedmaster contributed to the rescue of the Apollo 13 mission from a potential disaster, earning Omega the "Snoopy Award", the highest distinction awarded by the NASA astronauts. In another historical event, the Speedmaster was worn on the wrists of both the American astronaut Tom Stafford and the Russian cosmonaut Alexei Leonov during the historic Apollo-Soyuz space rendezvous. This was the first time the cosmonauts also wore the Omega Speedmaster. Ever since, the Speedmaster has been the official chronograph of all Russian manned space missions.
