Many people know that Armstrong wore the perfect fake Omega Speedmaster when walking on the moon. The important moment ensures that the ordinary self-winding mechanical timepiece will be written into the history. But the story of Speedmaster is not only that moon watch. Today I will introduce other two symbolic Speedmaster to you.
Speedmaster was manufactured in 1957 which was originally designed especially as the professional instruments such as the racer and engineers. The first Speedmaster is just CK22915. The black dial copy Omega has contained all the classic marks of the collection. The CK2915 is favored by numerous watch collectors.
The model that Armstrong wore on the moon was exactly not the first model to enter the space. The glory owes to the Speedmaster 2998 of Wally Schirra. He wore the remarkable imitation watch of Speedmaster to execute the mercury project. But when humans made the big progress, the ref.105.12 was worn by Armstrong.
