The Watch

Omega likes to celebrate some of the Apollo missions. Although you might think this is a recently-adopted practice of the last few years, it started in 1969 with the gold Speedmaster commemorating Apollo XI. Fast Forward to 2006, Omega released the Reference 3366.51.00 celebrating Apollo 15, a NASA mission that took place from July 26, 1971 – August 7, 1971. It was the fourth mission to land on the moon. It was the first time the Lunar Rover was deployed to cruise around the surface of the moon. 


This Reference 3366.51.00 focuses on the achievements of Commander David R. Scott, Command Module Pilot Alfred M. Worden, and Lunar Module Pilot James B. Irwin. After their Saturn V rocket delivered them into a parking orbit around the Earth, the third stage reignited to send them on their way to the Moon. After a three-day coast to the Moon, Scott, Worden, and Irwin arrived in lunar orbit on July 29 to prepare for the landing in and exploration of the Hadley-Apennine site and to conduct science from lunar orbit.

At the heart of this chronograph is OMEGA’s mechanical calibre 1861, the famous manual-winding movement that was first worn on the Moon.


The Watch is accompanied by its Full Set of Inner and Outer Boxes, Instructions/Booklets, Certificate, Scott Worden Irwin Pouch and spare bracelet links.
