Few watches, as it were, can compare with the Omega Speedmaster on the adventurous spirits. Since 1965, this collection has become an indispensable member of each US manned space mission. And it started to enjoy an international reputation on July 20th, 1969, when the Apollo 11 lunar module landed on the surface of the moon and Buzz Aldrin stepped on the moon resoundingly. Fixed outside his space suit, the Speedmaster was given a special name – Moon Watch, which has become a synonym for the Omega Speedmaster collection. Being on the moon for the first time, Omega Speedmaster precisely marked this occasion when human beings successfully and unprecedentedly conquered the moon in 1965. And just five years later, its outstanding timer function made a difference again in a space adventure, namely, the Apollo 13 spacecraft broke down due to the bunker’ s explosion. Luckily, with the help of the watch, the commander worked out the starting time of the rocket and finally refreshed the engine. As a result, the spacecraft returned safely to the earth. In recognition of the watch’ s perfect performance, NASA awarded its top honor to Omega watches for their extraordinary contributions to human beings’ space history.This time the new product – Omega Speedmaster Professional launched for men is closely connected with the moon for it contains not only all the timer functions, but also the moon phase and date indication. Its dial, made of melanized aventurine – the mixture of glass and metallic oxide, is extremely dazzling and of strong reflectivity. Like most of the classical moon watches, this new one is equiped with Omega 1866 movement as well. What’ s more, this men watch has not a few modern design features, like the breakage – proof sapphirine crystal mirror which has underwent anti – reflection processing. Moreover, the screw – in back cover is decorated with sapphire crystal as well, making the whole watch be of elegant appearance.”One small step for man, one giant leap for mankind”, said Neil Armstrong, and with the exploration spirit like this, I’ m convinced that , Omega, which means perfect and outstanding, will constantly creat more and more classics and miracles. 1d53e06a3a09b96dbdc857e65306f4ea-2277489
