In 1970, OMEGA received the prestigious “Silver Snoopy Award” from the astronauts at NASA. The prize recognised OMEGA’s unique contributions to space exploration, as well as the Speedmaster’s role in saving Apollo 13. Now, 50 years later, a special timepiece has been created in the occasion’s honour.
Fifty-one years ago, in July, while Apollo 11 astronauts left the first footsteps of humankind on the lunar surface, there was only one watch that accompanied the crew on this crucial mission: Omega Speedmaster Caliber 321.
Omega was the guest of our pages with the Seamaster Diver 300M Titanium Tantalum Limited Edition model from the Seamaster Diver 300M Collection that was renewed last year. The new model attracts attention with its details that refer the model family’s past.
