One of the most important moments in history celebrates its 50th anniversary.
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.
