Popular Used OMEGA Speedmaster Professional Watches
OMEGA's Speedmaster Professional is a variation of the classic Speedmaster that received NASA's official stamp of approval for space missions. It served astronauts on the Gemini missions in 1965, Apollo missions throughout the 1960s, and, most famously, on Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin's trip to the moon in 1969. The design of the Speedmaster Professional has remained largely unchanged over the years. Still, OMEGA and NASA continue partnering to refine the model. Buying an OMEGA Speedmaster Professional watch means truly owning a piece of history. Here, you can browse our tailored selection of exceptional used OMEGA Speedmaster Professional watches for sale.
The history of the OMEGA Speedmaster Professional began with the original Speedmaster, which gained widespread attention when astronaut Wally Schirra wore the Ref. CK2915 on the Mercury Atlas 8 flight. This prompted NASA to test a number of watch brands under extreme conditions in order to determine which would be best to use in future space missions. Ultimately, OMEGA was the winner.
In 1969, the Speedmaster Professional made history by being the first watch to land on the moon, earning the nickname "the Moonwatch." The brand continued to partner with NASA to refine the Speedmaster Professional. Over the course of the next several decades, there are two major missions on the horizon – a return trip to the moon, and a mission to Mars in 2030 which will require a variation of the Speedmaster Professional that can withstand the condition.
