In 1965, the Omega Professional Speedmaster was worn during the Gemini IV space mission, which was NASA’s second manned space flight, and more importantly the first space walk by an American. 2011 finds the Speedmaster Moonwatch Co-Axiel updated, with hints of what made the original chronograph so special. The lume-filled markers and hands look just like the original, but now boast a 44.25 mm diameter steel case and a scratch-resistant box type sapphire crystal featuring an anti-reflective treatment on both sides. Amongst the biggest changes is the addition of Omega’s new caliber 9300, COSC-certified chronometer, in-house self-winding movement with column-wheel mechanism, and Omega’s proprietary Co-Axial Escapement. Even after 50 years, this is still one of the most significant wrist accessories known to man. Priced at $8,700 USD, become a part of history.
