The Speedmaster went to the moon in 1969, earning it the nickname "Moon watch". The original watch with the tachymeter on its bezel was the only timepiece to pass the rigorous tests to be certified for use by NASA.
Our particular Speedy Mark II has just been recently serviced from Omega with a top-running caliber 861 that is one of the best-performing ones out there. In addition, this watch comes with all original links for the bracelet. The dial, a grey and burgundy combination, is livened up with orange accents on the hour markers and coated with luminous paint, and furthermore with patinated orange chronograph function hands.

Its iconography consists of a grey dial with a burgundy seconds track. All time telling hands are rendered white while hands related to the chronograph function are rendered orange.
Powered by the caliber 861, it is a modern update of the original caliber 321 that went to the moon. Besides switching out the column wheel for a shuttle cam, several components were made from special alloys to better resist the extreme temperature variation in space.
Deviating slightly from its Speedmaster counterparts, the case took on a lug-less barrel shape with a distinct sunray finish and sharp bevelled edges.
