Jul 1, 2019

Category: Gear

To celebrate the 50th anniversary of the monumental Apollo 11 moon landing, Omega is sponsoring The Metropolitan Museum of Art exhibition entitled Apollo’s Muse: The Moon in the Age of Photography. The iconic watch company is also releasing the Omega Speedmaster “First Omega in Space” The Met Edition watch before the exhibition opens.

The Met Edition timepiece is inspired by the Omega Speedmaster worn by astronaut Wally Schirra during the 1962 Mercury Sigma 7 mission, as well as The Met. Omega’s Met Edition wristwatch has a 39.77 mm stainless steel case, black varnished dial, black anodized aluminum bezel, and a red and white NATO strap, which is a nod to the museum’s signature colorway. It houses the Omega caliber 1861, a descendant of the movement that was trusted by NASA on the moon. The Met’s logo is engraved on the case back, as is Omega’s Seahorse medallion. And the special edition watch is presented inside a presentation box containing an additional leather strap. You can pick up your very own Omega Met Edition today for $5,200.

Purchase: $5,200
