Gifted to the Apollo 11 astronauts in 1969 and then produced in a limited run from 1969 to 1973, Omega is celebrating the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 with a new limited edition Speedmaster. The watch retains the same colorway as the original model, but is now updated in a new alloy called 18K Moonshine gold. It also features a vertically brushed step dial in Moonshine gold, facetted onyx hour markers, a burgundy ceramic bezel, and a manually-wound Master Chronometer Calibre 3861 movement. Additional details include a 42mm case, a decorative caseback ring in 18K Moonshine gold with a partial world map, and a domed lunar meteorite inlay. 

The watch will be available this July and is limited to 1,014 pieces.
