In 1962, NASA’s equipment procurement staff went directly to the watch store in Houston, purchased 6 chronographs, and returned to the Space Center for testing. In vacuum, it includes the test of temperature change, humidity change, fierce impact, accelerated centrifugal force, high and low pressure, noise, waterproof, anti-magnetic and anti-shock performance. Of the 6 chronograph watches selected, only Omega Speedmaster has expressed the high standards set by NASA and became the watch landing on the moon!
The Speedmaster has not changed in design since 1957. Because of its extremely complicated manufacturing process, it takes 14 months to prepare the independent parts before the actual assembly. The base assembly alone requires 80 manual operations, so superb and skilled. Craftsmanship enables human beings to realize their dream of landing on the moon!
Finally, on July 20, 1969, the American Apollo 11 spacecraft landed on the moon, and the first human landing on the moon. At 2:56 GMT on July 21, Neil Armstrong stepped on the surface of the moon and said, ‘This is a small step for me, but a big step for human beings!’ The people in front of the television screen on the planet are excited. Buzz Aldrin landed on the moon 19 minutes later, and he was wearing the Omega Speedmaster. An interesting episode was that when the electronic timing device of the lunar module failed, Armstrong left his Omega Speedmaster in the cabin in order to keep a safe spare timepiece. So Buzz Aldrin’s Speedmaster is really the first watch to land on the moon. With the end of the lunar mission and the normalization of space missions, the glory aura of the Omega Speedmaster professional lunar watch is as old as the brave astronauts in history, and continues to remain in the minds of watch fans and space fans.
