Sotheby’s are no strangers to the acquisition of rarified articles, and thanks to the company’s monumental influence within the realm of private and public auctions, they’re often the first to secure today’s most iconic collections. Now, to celebrate the 50th anniversary of mankind’s first moon landing — completed by Apollo 11 — the house has announced an extensive listing of historical timekeeping memorabilia from the prolific watchmakers at Omega.

With over 40 of Omega’s most iconic variants set to hit the auction block, the “To The Moon And Back” Collection encompasses a number of history’s most influential watches. They include the 2915-1, which fosters its title as the company’s first-ever Speedmaster model, all the way to the Alaska III prototype — a concept watch contracted by NASA’s Shuttle program in 1978 to incorporate an anti-reflective crystal and readable dial for accurate timekeeping in the vacuum of space. Alongside these well-kept variants, a slew of classic Speedmaster watches will also join the fray — each with their own interesting background, story, and character. Head over to Sotheby’s website for more information on the space-faring collection.

Purchase: $700+
