Omega Speedmaster Apollo 11 50th Anniversary

The first watch to make its way onto the lunar surface is celebrating 50 years of the Apollo 11 moon landing with a special edition of the Omega Speedmaster. The commemorative watch will feature a bezel ring that is made out of polished black ceramic with an Omega Ceragold tachymeter scale, 18K Moonshine Gold hands that have a high resistance to fading, and a number "11" detail at 11 o'clock. 

It will also feature a laser-engraved subdial that features Buzz Aldrin climbing down to make his first step on the moon, a laser-engraved footprint that resembles the iconic footprint on the moon's surface, and a Velcro strap in blackened cork with golden marks is included alongside the steel bracelet. The watch's movement is a manually-wound Master Co-Axial Caliber 3861 with a 50-hour power reserve. 

Available this July and limited to 6,969 pieces.
