OMEGA celebrates the 50th anniversary of Apollo 11 with some honoring watches including the newest iteration of the Speedmaster. It measures out to have a 42mm stainless steel construction accented with a special premium 18k Moonshine and Ceragold detailing.

This luxurious accent is seen across the indexes, the tachymeter scale, and the subdials. Some of the notable details also include the bezel, which is complete in a polished black ceramic material and the decorative case back featuring a space boot footprint informed with laser engravings. As another nod to the Apollo 11 anniversary, there is also the phrase "THAT'S ONE SMALL STEP FOR A MAN, ONE GIANT LEAP FOR MANKIND" engraved. Rounding out the design is the subdial at 9 o'clock that is designed to look like Buzz Aldrin climbing on the mood in gold.
