Omega Speedmaster Apollo 11 45th anniv moonshot

The OMEGA Speedmaster Professional Apollo 11 45th Anniversary Limited Edition wristwatch commemorates the first lunar landing and celebrates its link to the iconic chronograph that was part of the adventure.

The watch has 42mm titanium case with a greyish PVD dial, produced using a special laser which creates the design elements on the watch’s face by removing the material surrounding the name, sub-dial numerals and hour markers.  The dial can look a bit greyish or even brownish depending on the light reflection (and in some of these press pics), but when seen in person the dial is really black  — just watch the video below and you will see a better representation of the color.

The Speedmaster Professional Apollo 11 45th Anniversary Limited Edition is enhanced with Omega’s “Sedna” gold for the hands and indexes. The bezel is also Senda gold, topped by a black ceramic ring with tachy scale.  Fitted on a great looking NATO-like strap.
