Omega Speedmaster Apollo XI Limited Series in 18K Yellow Gold

Accompanied by an Omega Archives Extract confirming the official production of the present watch on April 9, 1970 and its subsequent delivery to Hong Kong. The watch also comes with an Omega image gallery box containing 20 original color pictures of the moon landings. The Omega Speedmaster Apollo 11 model in solid gold was created in the fall of 1969 to commemorate Apollo 11’s successful Moon landing. A total of 1,014 were produced especially for NASA astronauts, two for the President and Vice President, and the remaining were made available for the general public to acquire. The available examples were assigned an engraved dedication, Omega Speedmaster - Apollo XI 1969 - The First Watch Worn on the Moon, and numbered. The very small amount offered to the general public was available in two versions. The present watch is from the second version, with the engraving on the case back painted in a burgundy color, which complements its burgundy colored bezel. This watch also features the second version of the dial, showing a round ‘O’ in the OMEGA signature as opposed to the earlier version, which is more oval-shaped (for an example of the first version of this reference see lot 14). Preserved in very good original overall condition, the present watch is number 971 of this limited series. An example of all three casebacks made in this series are illustrated described in OMEGA, A Journey Through Time by Marco Richon, 2007, p. 605.
