Back in 1957, Omega Speedmaster, one of the most important watch series in the world, was officially released. In the 60 years since its introduction, the configuration and appearance of Speedmaster watches have changed several times, some of which have become famous key models, and some are not so well known.
The 1957 CK2915 Broad Arrow was one of the three major products released by Omega. The other two were the Ironmaster Railmaster (CK2914) and the Seamaster 300 (CK2913). All three timepieces are precision timepieces designed for professional tasks, with black dials, sturdy cases and stainless steel bracelets, where mechanical performance and aesthetics complement each other.
The 1959 Speedmaster Ref. CK 2998 was the first Omega watch to reach space. Astronaut Walter Schirra wore this watch during the Mercury Project ‘Sigma 7’ mission in 1962, when he purchased it for his own use. Two and a half years later, the Speedmaster watch was certified by NASA and officially designated as a dedicated watch for manned space missions.
For more than half a century, the Omega Speedmaster has witnessed events that test the limits of human physical endurance and mental courage, including the first manned moon landing in July 1969 and NASA manned flights since March 1965 Mission, this is also the watch commonly referred to as the Moon Watch.
Omega makes very rare stainless steel chronograph chronographs as part of the Alaska IV project. Built for NASA space shuttles, these digital watches feature the date, day of the week, and month display, and are decorated with the words Omega, Speedmaster, Professional, Quartz, and Alaska IV Model .
In 1992, Omega celebrated the 50th anniversary of the Caliber 321 movement, launched a commemorative gold watch with a limit of 999 Caliber 863 movements, and a watch with a limit of 250 Caliber 864 movements.
In 1975, Omega first created exclusive watches for NASA’s Apollo Soyuz mission, and has since introduced anniversary timepieces many times, including the supercar wrist released 35 years later (that is, 2010) from this first US / Russian cooperation project. table.
