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.
Like the standard Speedy Pro, the Tintin features a hesalite acrylic crystal with the addition of a distinct red and white racing-inspired minute track, which instantly sets it apart from the rest. Powered by the manual wind Caliber 1861, the modern interpretation of the legendary caliber 861 from 1968 that was present in the watches that went to space, keeps the profile of the Omega Speedmaster in this configuration appealing slender.

OMEGA GOES TO THE MOON
In 1969, Mankind celebrated an achievement across all of modern civilisation, as NASA astronauts took their first steps on the Moon. Partnering their endeavors was the only mechanical wristwatch that was certified for use by the space agency, and remains one of the only mechanical wristwatches that have been used by NASA over the years.
TINTIN GOES TO THE MOON
The famed comic hero was years ahead of NASA's astronauts, venturing to the Moon in 1953. Destination Moon was a two-part story and one of the adventurer's most successful editions. His red-and-white checked rocket with which he travelled to the Moon was the inspiration for this watch model.
