The watch of space heroes

For the second consecutive year, the readers of the Italian magazine, "L'Orologio", have awarded the first prize in the "1995 Top Watch" competition (chronograph category) to the Omega Speedmaster Professional.

Known affectionately as the "Moon Watch", the Omega Speedmaster Professional is today worn by the world's fastest drivers (like Formula One World Champion, Michael Schumacher) and has a high profile screen outing in the Tom Hanks movie, "Apollo 13". After a technical fault seriously damaged the main power and oxygen supply of the spacecraft, it was the accuracy of Jack Swigert's Omega Speedmaster Professional that enabled the crew of Apollo 13 to embark on the correct course home. A less than perfect timing would have sent them careering into a never ending orbit of the sun.

Featuring a tachyproductometric scale for calculating a vehicle's speed, this mechanical hand-winding chronograph comes with a luminous dial, screwed-back water-resistant case and stainless steel bracelet.
