Omega 42mm Speedmaster, Black Dial, Leather Strap Ref. 105.012-66

Widely known as the Moonwatch, this Omega Speedmaster is one of the more sought after as it was the model worn throughout the Apollo program.  Several features set it apart from later Speedmaster releases, but it is the movement that captures the imagination of Speedmaster aficionados.  The caliber 321 with its favored column wheel has recently been serviced, assuring the new owner of years of worry free wear.  As part of the normal service, the hesalite crystal and the crown were replaced.  In addition to the service and movement, the other highlight of the watch is the very nice condition Dot Over Ninety (DON) bezel and black step dial.  Originally with tritium lume, the lume on many of the indices has worn away.  This vintage Speedmaster is an appealing watch that still holds its connection between the climatic years of the Moon landing and the present every expanding Speedmaster fan base.

Description

Omega is one of the world’s most recognizable luxury watch brands.  Although founded in 1848, the company did not become known as Omega until 1894, when the company took the name of its highly successful new watch movement.  The revolutionary movement used a single crown for both winding and time setting.  Success followed success when in 1905, due to its commitment to accuracy, Omega became the official timekeeper for Swiss sporting events.  Later in 1932, Omega became the official timekeeper of the Olympic Games.  To mark Omega’s 100th year anniversary, Omega introduced the watch that would become one of the world’s most popular watches, the Seamaster.  While these are remarkable achievements, the watch that made Omega a legend among watchmakers was the Speedmaster, the only watch to survive the brutal NASA testing requirements and the only watch certified by NASA for use in Space.  It is no surprise that Omega watches are recognized today as spectacularly rugged tool watches hiding in a luxury watch.
