You don’t really have to say a lot about the “Moonwatch” from Omega. The US space agency NASA selected the AAA quality fake Omega Speedmaster chronograph, created in 1957, as a mission wristwatch after extensive tests.
On March 23, 1965, the stopper completed its first space flight. And he accompanied the astronauts on July 21, 1969 when they landed on the moon. The probation in orbit led to the nickname “Professional”.
Success and increasing demand necessitated the use of the hand-wound caliber Lémania 1873, which can be produced in larger quantities. The Swiss movement named by Omega 1861 has a more cost-effective chronograph gate mechanism instead of the column wheel. This is how the steel bracelet Omega copy timepiece is still made today.
