Description

A very rare and early Speedmaster with a beautiful dial with a charming patina and with the legendary OMEGA cal. 321! The OMEGA Speedmaster was the first and only watch worn on the moon by the astronauts Neli Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin and Michael Collins of Apollo XI landing on the moon on 20th of July 1969. OMEGA advertisement after the moon-landing: “ Some people use the Speedmaster for timing eggs. Others use it for timing a walk on the moon.“ The very sought after OMEGA cal. 321 was only built until 1969!

There is a story behind a vintage watch.
Besides the obvious fact that traveling down the years,
a watch absorbs the energy of time and history, it often has a significant story to tell, based on the purpose it was originally made for.
