Product Description

The Omega Story
The Omega watch story begins in 1848, when founder Louis Brandt began hand assembling key-wound precision pocket watches from parts supplied by local craftsmen in his principality La Chaux-de-Fonds, in the northwest corner of Switzerland. However, the Omega name didn't appear until 1894, after Louis Brandt had passed away and his watchmaking traditions were taken over by his sons, Louis-Paul and Cesar Brandt. Omega watches have long been associated with glamorous screen and sports stars--the Omega Seamaster is famous for being the watch of choice for James Bond--with current ambassadors including Pierce Brosnan, Nicole Kidman, tennis player Anna Kournikova, and swimmers Michael Phelps and Ian Thorpe.

But Omega is more than just a fashionable watch. In 1965, the Omega Speedmaster chronograph was "flight-qualified by NASA for all manned space missions" as the only wristwatch to have withstood all of the U.S. space agency's severe tests, including passing grades for extreme shocks, vibrations, and temperatures ranging from -18 to +93 degrees Celsius. The greatest moment in the Speedmaster's history was undoubtedly 20 July 1969 at 02:56 GMT, when it recorded man's first steps on the Moon's surface as part of the Apollo 11 mission. Today, Omega is known for its rigorous testing of new movements, cases, and bands. Each new Omega movement is tested on the wrist in existing Omega models, while various laboratory tests are conducted to determine temperature-resistance, shock-resistance and vibration-resistance.

    Sapphire crystal is much more scratch resistant but can shatter with high impact.

    People are often surprised to find out that the purchase of a fine watch does not end with said purchase.

    Having said that, the Omega 3573.50 Speedmaster Professional is simply a terrific watch.

    This is a beautiful watch with a legendary history and phenomenal following. It has been one of the most popular watches ever made by Omega since its debut in 1957. The current Speedmaster Professionals come in multiple versions, but are for the most part little changed in its over 50 year life.

    Why is it amazing?

    During the 1960's space race with the Soviets, NASA did not have the time to announce an open competition from all interested watch companies to design a watch suitable for space travel. This would have required bids from different manufacturers with the eventual award of a government contract. NASA engineers in plain clothes went to downtown Houston and entered various high end stores and purchased high-end (i.e. expensive) manual wind wristwatches from 10 different brands, such as Omega, Rolex, etc. This was all done in secrecy and none of the watch manufacturers, such as Omega, were aware of this. NASA subjected the watches to grueling tests of temperature extremes, shocks, humidity, extreme pressure changes, etc. All of the watches malfunctioned and could not finish all of the tests except for one, the Omega Speedmaster.

    NASA began to equip their astronauts in 1962 for the Gemini missions with a Speedmaster attached by a strap to the OUTSIDE of the astronauts' suits. Omega executives saw NASA's photos of the astronauts and realized that they were using their watches. This was quickly confirmed with a phone call to NASA. NASA then quickly announced that the Omega Speedmaster was the official watch to be used on their space missions. Realize that this was all done without Omega's awareness.

    Bulova, an American watchmaker, pressured congressmen who pressured NASA to allow for an open competition to include Bulova.

    I purchased my Omega Speedmaster Professional almost 38 years ago and still wear it today. I spent $375 to have it overhauled a few months ago as I could not bear to part with it. In 1969 I was in a bunker on top of a hill northeast of Khe Sanh(the siege was long over)and saw an ad in TIME for the watch that went to the moon. While on R&R in Hong Kong a month later I purchased it and have never regretted it. I timed 'flash to burst' artillery observations, timed officer candidates' performance on conditioning runs, timed photo processes in a darkroom, timed my wife's contractions during childbirth, timed radio and tv advertising scripts and use it to keep time while I am cooking. Always a faithful reminder of all that I have been through and ready to go for decades more, I plan to leave it to my first-born grandson when I pass away.

    My Speedmaster is now 34 years old. It has been overhauled twice in the years I have owned it. The crystal is susceptible to scratching, though there are a few tricks for getting rid of superficial scratches. Its accuracy is good though not outstanding. It has proven to be more durable than the Rolex it was traded for, though I must point out the Rolex was a 1960s model which probably just needed a routine service.

    People are often surprised to find out that the purchase of a fine watch does not end with said purchase. There is also maintenance and sometimes repair to be done at a later date, just like with upper tier cars.

    There is little more to be said other than this watch endured several occupations I have participated in without a hitch. If the lack of water resistance does not bother you, this is an excellent watch with a proven track record both on Earth and in outer space. It is not particularly flashy which to my way of thinking is a good thing.

    I purchased my Omega Speedmaster in 1971 in a U.S. Army Post Exchange in Di-an Vietnam. What I share with you now is true: In the Army PX, I paid $135.00 for it new! At 20 years old, I had no idea the value of such a watch. I just knew from Life and National Geographic Magazine, the astronauts wore the Speedmaster and that was good enough for me.
    Forty-one years later, I still own this watch. Just this past month, I had my watch maker take it completely apart, for cleaning. My horologist, an eccentric Romanian gentleman kept my Speedmaster for an additional week just to make certain my Speedmaster kept perfect time. I thought it odd I saw him wearing it in his shop.
    I was informed the stem to the crown was beginning to rust (a minor repair) and the rest of the internal workings are in excellent condition.
    My watch maker said: "Should you ever wish to sell your Speedmaster, let me know."
    On several occasions, these past four decades, other 'moon watch' owners spotted my Speedmaster on my left wrist. Always the most interesting people. I think there should be some secret handshake that goes with owning this piece of history.
    There are many other fine watches yet there is only one moon watch.

    I own this watch, it's been nothing but perfect in form and function, altho it has the sapphire crystal and display back, it is better suited to someone who is a little tougher on their watches than most. It's a little thicker and heavier than the plastic (Hesalite)crystal versions, without having to polish the plastic all the time. The sapphire display back is a visual to the stunning mechanical movement. There are many who want to keep the Speedy in it's true form of Hesalite crystal and steel back, but these new ones are a step up in my opinion for someone who will wear it daily, the crystal will remain flawless for life and no polishing of the crystal needed. The 863 movement is the same as the 861 except for the Delrin (nylon)Brake. The exibition backed Speedys use a metal brake for appearance, so you don't see a piece of plastic in such an expensive watch. Since I'm not going to do any space travel in the near future the Sapphire Crystal is definately the way to go for scratch resistance and durability and they are heavier which I like. It's a good investment and a beauty to see the movement in motion with the sapphire back. Omega quality at it's finest in a timeless design, it's simply the perfection of form and function in a timepiece. I bought it from Amazon over a year ago and has been stellar thus far.
