    The Omega Speedmaster is one of the most legendary chronograph watches to ever be produced. Introduced in 1957, it has consistently set the mark for precision timekeeping and accuracy. The line was deemed so reliable that NASA chose the Speedmaster Professional for several of its space exploration programs.

    The present example is a limited edition of 1957 examples made in 2007 to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Speedmaster Professional. With black enamel dial, the new model sports the upgraded Co-Axial caliber 3201 manual movement and a sapphire crystal display back, which is engraved “Speedmaster - 50th Anniversary - Limited Series - Co-Axial – Chronometer”. In excellent overall condition, and sold with original presentation box and warranty, this is a chance to own a part of Speedmaster history.

    Omega

    Swiss • 1848

    Omega's rich history begins with its founder, Louis Brandt, who established the firm in 1848 in La Chaux de Fonds. In 1903, the company changed its name to Omega, becoming the only watch brand in history to have been named after one its own movements. A full-fledged manufacturer of highly accurate, affordable and reliable watches, its sterling reputation enabled them to be chosen as the first watch company to time the Olympic Games beginning in 1932. Its continued focus on precision and reliability ultimately led their Speedmaster chronograph wristwatch to be chosen by NASA in 1965 — the first watch worn on the moon.

    Key models sought-after by collectors include their first, oversized water-resistant chronograph — the reference 2077, early Speedmaster models such as the CK 2915 and 2998, military-issued versions of the Seamaster and oversized chronometer models such as those fitted with their prestigious caliber 30T2Rg.
