This OMEGA Speedmaster Moonwatch “Apollo XVII” is limited to 1,972 pieces and commemorates the 45th anniversary of the final moon landing in 1972.
The 42 mm stainless steel case features a polished blue ceramic bezel with its tachymeter scale in OMEGA Ceragold™. The dial is also polished blue ceramic with 18K yellow gold indexes and hour-minute “Moon” hands that are coated in Super-LumiNova.
The subdial hands are 18K yellow gold or varnished matt white, and the central chronograph hand is also varnished white with a red tip.
“05:34 GMT” is printed in red indicating the time that Cernan made the final step on the moon, while the 9 o’clock subdial is distinguished by a representation of the God Apollo and the moon – etched in PVD in a chrome colour.
The watch has a stainless steel bracelet and is driven by the iconic OMEGA calibre 1861. The caseback is engraved with “45th ANNIVERSARY”, “Limited Edition” and a unique number. It also has an embossed Apollo XVII patch, “APOLLO XVII” and “a tribute to Gene Cernan”.
This watch is in pristine condition. Would reckon as 99% new. Original owner only wear twice and put in safe. Highly collectable. Can't afford to miss!
