INTRODUCTION:  “...The Speedmaster is a wristwatch with chronograph function, which was put on the market in 1957;  In 1965 the Speedmaster was selected by the NASA as the official watch for the astronauts. Since 1966 it bears the name Speedmaster Professional and has received the typical design with a contrasting black dial.

The Omega Speedmaster Professional was the only watch which passed the extensive tests at the NASA. These tests included magnetic fields, gravity loss, temperature changes from -18 to +93 degrees Celsius, as well as extreme shocks and vibrations. It had a stainless steel case and was waterproof up to 50 meters. Initially the Calibre 321 was built in, since 1968 the manual winding movement 861 (or 1861) with 21.600 A/h was used.

This watch is known to have been the first and only wristwatch on the moon, and is therefore often referred to as the 'Moon Watch'. On 16 July 1969 the Apollo 11 mission took off, and on 21 July 1969 Buzz Aldrin walked on the lunar surface with the Speedmaster his wrist. Thus, the watch of Aldrin was the first watch on the moon, as Neil Armstrong's watch was left behind in the lunar module. When Aldrin later sended the watch to the National Air and Space Museum, it was unfortunately lost and did not appear to this day. The two watches of Neil Armstrong and Michael Collins are now on display.

As another credit this manual winding chronograph can take, that in 1970 it provided valuable support to the crew of the damaged Apollo 13 capsule. After the on-board electronics had failed for good, in a crucial moment it helped to enable the manual ignition of the returning engines.

Just before the moon landing, Cal. 861 was introduced and this soon became the standard movement for the Speedmaster Professional series. These later Professional "moon watches" feature an asymmetrical case that somewhat protects the chronograph pushers. But the Moonwatch case is not the hallmark of "Professional" either. The automatic Mark II was labeled "Professional" throughout its run, as was the later Mark IV. And the Mark III was given the "Professional" label in 1973 as well. These watches featured a wide variety of cases and dials along with their automatic movements and all were officially called "Professional".

Mark Series

In 1969, Omega introduced the Omega Speedmaster Professional Mark II, indicating that this was a successor to the original Speedmaster Professional. This model used a decidedly different tonneau case. A Mark III line appeared in 1971 with three different cases reminiscent of the Flightmaster and Seamaster and the new 2-register Cal. 1040 central-rotor automatic movement. The Mark III was not originally marked "Professional", but it gained this name after 1973. The Speedmaster Professional Mark IV appeared in 1973 with a new case style and Cal. 1040. This case was shared with a 3-register non-Professional automatic Speedmaster using the new Cal. 1045. In 1984, Omega introduced another non-Professional Speedmaster Mark V with another new case and the 3-register Cal. 1045.

1989 a contract between Omega and the Russian space agency was ratified that ensured that the Omega Speedmaster Professional was also used as the official watch at the cosmonauts. Between 1993 and 1994 the Russian space agency conducted tests with various watches on board of the MIR and ultimately decided in favour of the Speedmaster.Today the Omega Speedmaster Professional belongs to the standard equipment of the astronauts.

Omega Speedmaster Professional Mark II. Therefore, The name "Speedmaster Professional" is synonymous with the exploration of space and is best known as the first watch worn on the moon, giving them some pretty serious credentials. It is arguable that Omega would probably have stayed in business and been just as popular if the original moon watch was the only model they ever made for the line. The years following the legendary Apollo mission saw the release of an expanded line of Speedmaster variants, known commonly as the "Mark" Series. Some of these watches were real flops on the market, and others weren't. Regardless of their initial popularity, all are interesting timepieces and have a collector following today. Of these Mark Series Speedmasters, this is the first successor to the original Professional - the Mark II. There are some who believe that the Mark II was intended as a more space-friendly replacement to the original Moon Watch model. Mark II Speedmasters were the first radical departure from the traditional Speedmaster case, and instead of an exposed lug design, the Mark II was given a tonneau shape with hidden lugs. This gives the Mark II a great profile and a distinctly 70s look that is quite popular with enthusiasts today. Like the Moon Watch models, the Mark II used the Calibre .861 manual winding chronograph movement that was introduced in 1968, making them robust and reliable for regular use. Values on the Mark II have been climbing for the past few years, and like their pair the moon watch, are going to continue doing so as the 50th Anniversary of the Apollo 11 mission is neaby...”
