In 1965, NASA officially declares Omega as part of the equipment of astronauts for the Apollo missions. The launch of the Omega Speedmaster Ref. 145022-71 ST, in 1971, was intended to accompany the astronauts for the first conquest of the moon. This COSC-certified chronograph has a 42mm case with a NASA-engraved screwed back and is surrounded by a beautiful tachymeter bezel. Its original dial has three counters with a minute totalizer at 3 o'clock, an hour totalizer at 6 o'clock and a permanent second hand at 9 o'clock with tritium indexes and hands. It is driven by the mechanical movement of the Lemania base Caliber 861 with a mono-metallic balance wheel and a shockproof hairspring. Its steel bracelet and folding clasp are signed Omega. In good original condition, this iconic watch will be delivered to you with our certificate of authenticity and our 6-month warranty.
