Speedmaster Moonwatch 1967 Pre-Moon



The reference 145.012, together with the 105.003 and 105.012, was also the Speedmaster that Omega sent to NASA for use during Extravehicular Activities (EVA) by astronauts during the Apollo missions. We know now that the 105.012 reference was actually used by Neil Armtrong and Edwin “Buzz” Aldrin during Apollo 11. Aldrin’s watch was worn on the Moon in July 1969, as the legend has it that Armstrong’s watch was left behind in the command module. However, Apollo 11 astronaut Michael Collins was wearing the Speedmaster Professional 145.012. Also, astronauts of later Apollo missions had the 145.012 instead of the 105.012 (and the occasional 105.003 that was still in use) being Alan Shephard (Apollo XIV) and Tom Stafford )Apollo-Soyuz.
