Omega Speedmaster 25th Anniversary Moonwatch 3891.5000
Model Code: 3891.5000£7995.00
This very important edition of the legendary Omega Speedmaster celebrates 25 years since the Moonwatch accompanied astronauts Grissom and Young on their first space flight in Gemini III. The Speedmaster was used famously by Edward White to measure the duration of the first US space walk. The Omega Speedmaster became the first and only watch to be worn on the moon: a testament to the model’s mechanical brilliance and durable reputation. This model, released in 1994, celebrates the legacy of the Speedmaster and its status as a historical timepiece. With the 50th Anniversary of the moon landing approaching in 2019, we can be sure to expect a profoundly popular commemorative Speedmaster to appear on the market. Thus, these fabulous 25th anniversary models will certainly find themselves in the spotlight once again. This particular model remains in outstanding condition, featuring exclusive engravings on the side and back of the case, reading ‘APOLLO XI 1969-1994’ and ‘LIMITED EDITION’. Alongside this watch comes its original packaging, an assortment of limited edition patches, booklets, hang tags, information about the watch and its heritage, and a guarantee card dated 31/05/95.
