The new Omega Speedmaster Moonwatch ‘Apollo 15’ 40th Anniversary Limited Edition Watch is designed in the Omega style and presents a robust case constructed of stainless steel with polished and brushed finish and equipped with a black aluminium ring engraved with a tachymeter scale. Besides, the case has attached two push pieces and a security crown located at 3 o’clock. The impeccable mechanical movement that powers the watch is protected inside the case.

The sporty Speedmaster Moonwatch device incorporates a black dial which captures the three colors of the American flag – red, white and blue – displayed on the minute track and also applied around the 30-minute, 60-second and 12-hour counters. Besides, the three counters add a touch of dynamism to the face of the watch. In addition, the time is indicated by means of luminescent white hands located in the center which travel over hour markers and indexes.

In terms of mechanical movement, the latest Omega timepiece is endowed with a hand-wound Caliber 1861 with chronograph movement that brings to life all functions of the model. The mechanism is in-house made and is the same found at the heart of the classic Speedmaster Professional Moonwatch.

Furthermore, the newest Omega Speedmaster Moonwatch ‘Apollo 15’ 40th Anniversary Watch is available with a stainless steel bracelet also polished and brushed to match with the case design. The bracelet provides comfort on the wrist, but also offers a sporty and masculine look to the timepiece and completes all design-related features.

In the end, the recent Omega ‘Apollo 15’ 40th Anniversary Watch will be available for watch collectors for a retail price of 7,000 US dollars and will be offered as a limited series.
