Launched in 2006 to commemorate the 35th anniversary of the Apollo 15 space mission, the limited edition Speedmaster Apollo 15 combines features of the original Moon Watch ─ the first and only watch worn on the moon ─ with new features. This limited edition consists of 1,971 watches, in honour of the year of the mission.
This special edition timepiece is equipped with Omega1861 chronograph manual-winding movement, which has a power reserve of 48 hours. The dial is black with red-gold hour markers and SuperLuminova luminous dots. The red-gold hands are also SuperLuminova-coated.
The Speedmaster Professional Moon Watch Apollo 15 has three recessed, two-tone counters: the 12-hour counter at six o’clock, the 30-minute counter at three o’clock and the small seconds counter at nine o’clock. All have stylish red-gold surrounds that match other features of the watch. The 18-carat red-gold bezel has a black aluminium ring with a tachymetric scale.
The 42 mm diameter case is of polished and brushed stainless steel with 18-carat red gold push buttons and crown. The sapphire crystal case back is etched with the special Apollo 15 patch, featuring three stylized birds representing the three astronauts of the Apollo 15 mission – Commander David R. Scott, Alfred M. Worden and James B. Irwin.
The case back is engraved with the words “Apollo 15” and “35th anniversary”, as well as the number of the limited edition and the Omega logo in black. The Speedmaster Professional Apollo 15 is water-resistant to a depth of 50 meters (167 feet).
