Apollo 11 marked the second time man has walked on the moon; though Buzz Aldrin's moonwalk wasn't the first, he was the first to wear a watch. The watch that Buzz Aldrin wore when he walked on the moon was an 'Omega Speedmaster.' In order to commemorate this great feat of man, 'Omega' released a limited 'Speedmaster' in honor of the 45th anniversary of Apollo 11.
The matted gray face of the watch gives off the feel that it is made out of gray moon rock. The gray face allows for the gold hands and hour marks to stand out of the face. With a nylon strap that is inspired by the same watch straps that are issued to military personnel. As this watch is to honor the second moonwalk, you can trust that this 'Omega Speedmaster' is designed to have a long life.
