The world of space is a mysterious place constantly explored by human beings. Astronauts or spacecraft, able to swim into the space world, will be crowned as eternal honor by humans. What about a watch that can go to space? On March 1, 1965, the Omega Speedmaster Chronometer successfully passed NASA testing and was approved by NASA to participate in all manned space flight missions.
The Speedmaster series is the only watch that has successfully passed all rigorous tests by the US Space Agency, including testing for weightlessness, magnetic fields, extreme shock and vibration, and extreme temperature environments between -18 ° C and + 93 ° C.
One of the most memorable moments in the history of Speedmasters is the 2:21 am GMT on July 21, 1969. At that moment, it recorded the first steps for humans to reach the moon. The Apollo 11 mission was a milestone in human history, and the Speedmaster became the first wristwatch ever worn on the moon. With a unique feat, it won the unique title of ‘Moon Watch’. The only watch brand to win this award is Omega.
The Omega Speedmaster is one of the brand’s most iconic models. The legendary Speedmaster watch has participated in all six human moon landing missions, and is the perfect representative of the brand’s pioneering spirit. What I brought to you today is an Omega Speedmaster coaxial chronograph. The official model is: 322.214.171.124.01.001.
Many watches in the Speedmaster family are well known and loved by us. The Omega Speedmaster coaxial chronograph is equipped with a classic 44.25 mm stainless steel case, which is common in Speedmaster professional watches. This model has a beveled black dial with white materials and white lacquered hands. Available in black leather strap and stainless steel bracelet.
The unique design concept of the Omega Speedmaster coaxial chronograph creates an elegant and slim body: the arc-shaped wear-resistant sapphire crystal is not only equipped on the front of the watch, but also on the polished screw-in case back. The sapphire crystal on the case back has anti-reflective treatment, showing the beauty of the movement.
The chronograph button co-exists with the crown on one side. Because the watch itself has a larger diameter, there is no pressure on this arrangement. At the same time, the senses can also be full of movement.
The leather used for the strap is unusual, or the leather strap is already common. While enjoying the perfect coloring technology, it can provide perfect protection for the wrist.
Frankly, this watch is relatively thick from the side, but it also fully illustrates its powerful function. You can feel the heavy feeling when you pick up the watch.
Although the stainless steel buckle is not luxurious in material, the moon watch itself pays more attention to the use. Sanded to a matte texture, it looks firmer and firmer.
The design of this lug is very clever, because the relatively heavy watch style lugs need strong support and comfort. Controlling the width and length of the lugs is the most important design.
The dial is different from the three small dials that are commonly found on Speedmaster watches. There are only two small dials. Thanks to Omega’s innovative method, the 12-hour and 60-minute chronograph dials are simultaneously arranged at the 3 o’clock. Time reading is cheaper and clearer at a glance. The two chronograph control buttons are completely independent, so the timing device will not be pressed accidentally. (Dial chart)
The watch is equipped with the Omega 9300 coaxial movement, and some of the main accessories are the same as the prototype Speedmaster professional watch: black dial, moon watch-style hands and familiar black speedometer on the bezel. This most loved chronograph also has many unique features, and it will surely attract more watch lovers. Speedmaster coaxial chronographs are also equipped with silicon hairsprings. Silicon is non-magnetic, so it is not affected by magnetic fields. This characteristic, combined with the excellent elastic synergy of silicon, allows the hairspring etched on the silicon wafer to provide excellent timing performance. Silicon is rarely affected by fatigue and ages very slowly. The combination of coaxial technology and silicon hairspring creates excellent reliability. Omega provides a four-year warranty for all coaxial watches equipped with silicon hairspring. Let the wearer have no worries at all. (Back-to-back)
Speedmaster is a treasure of many men’s hearts. So far, the Speedmaster series watches have a good reputation, and they have a price advantage. They are not too cumbersome to decorate, and they emphasize functionality. They are very suitable for men who have some purchasing power and taste. We may never get to space, but we can have at least one Omega moon watch in our lifetime.
