  • Catalogue Essay

    With an intrinsic and unbreakable bond with Space, the Omega Speedmaster Professional garnered much attention and became a global sensation when it became the very first wristwatch to be worn on the moon by astronauts Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin in 1969. Since then, the Omega Speedmaster Professional became an icon and continued to thrive, launching various models and editions to commemorate their participation in the research and development of missions in space.

    In 2005, Omega launched the Speedmaster Professional “Gemini 4 First Space Walk 40th Anniversary” ref. 3565.80.00 limited edition of 2,005 pieces. Made to commemorate the 40th Anniversary of the first spacewalk executed by astronaut McDivitt White, the caseback features a vibrantly embossed plaque to celebrate the successful event taken place in 1965.

    Preserved in excellent overall condition, the present example numbered 1,905 is further charmed by the full set of accessories. Distinctive due to its blue bezel paired harmoniously along with a matching blue dial with red inscribed commemoration dates on the dial, it is certainly a vibrant iteration of the coveted Speedmaster.

  • Artist Biography

    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.
