A Legend in its Own Time

OMEGA’s renowned Speedmaster Professional Chronograph has a unique place in the history of space exploration as the only piece of equipment used in all of NASA's piloted space missions from Gemini to the current International Space Station program. "The World's Most Famous Chronograph, the Speedmaster Professional is still the only watch certified by NASA for use on an EVA (Extra Vehicular Activity)."

An Impressive Pioneering Spirit

The OMEGA Speedmaster has been part of all six lunar missions, the legendary Speedmaster is an impressive representation of the brand's adventurous pioneering spirit. President John F. Kennedy's challenge to send an astronaut on the Moon was particularly audacious considering that when he first voiced it in 1962, only one American had been in space for a grand total of 15 minutes and 28 seconds. Of course, his objective was eventually achieved and the OMEGA Speedmaster was there for the first famous steps.

A Classic Movement

Until 1968, the Speedmaster was powered by the iconic calibre 321 which was later changed to calibre 861. This was updated with the high-grade rhodium-plated finish of the calibre 1861 and the more embellished 1863. Today, the timepiece is driven by virtually the same hand-wound movement trusted by NASA's astronauts on the Moon.
