Plaza Watch International - - The 50 Most Influential -

Not be con­fused with later Speed­mas­ter mod­els pow­ered by Cal­i­bre 861, th­ese two quin­tes­sen­tial ref­er­ences con­tain­ing Cal­i­bre 321 have been to the moon and back. As­tro­naut Buzz Aldrin was the first man to wear a watch – this watch – on the moon dur­ing 1969’s Apollo 11 mission. The cel­e­brated Speed­mas­ter has been worn dur­ing nu­mer­ous space mis­sions since, and the Speed­mas­ter re­mains a back­bone of Omega’s col­lec­tion to this day.
