From the Earth to the Moon

Tomorrow, 20th. July 2009, marks the 40th. Anniversary of the first moon landing. I thought it would be interesting to post the following links from the Omega site as I found it very interesting. There is also the speech given by the late President Kennedy.

The following watches feature the famous Omega caliber 1861, the manual winding chronograph movement that was worn on the moon.

This is a limited edition watch (7,969 pieces) produced to commemorate the 40th. Anniversary of the first moon landing and the first watch on the moon. The small second counter at the 9 o'clock position features a medallion. the medallion features an adaption of the Apollo 11's mission patch. On the dial, the legend 02:56 GMT, the exact time Neil Armstrong made his one small leap. The case back is decorated with the Apollo 11 Eagle mission patch.
