First published: 22-06-2011

Omega has celebrated a special anniversary of space travel with a new timepiece that is sure to catch the eye of consumers.

The Speedmaster Moonwatch "Apollo 15" 40th Anniversary Limited Edition is the watch in question and has been created to honour the 1971 mission of Nasa to the moon.

Design features which allow this timepiece to instantly appeal to watch fans include an elegant case and bracelet, toned in brushed stainless steel.

Meanwhile, a black aluminium ring for a bezel style, complete with a tachymeter scale, adds a bold feature to the device's face.

Inside these is a dial toned in a solid black colour, which display a trio of sub-dials so that reading the time can be simple.

At the three o'clock position for example is a 30-minute counter, while a 12-hour counter dominates the six o'clock location. A small seconds feature can be spotted at nine o'clock too.

Omega, which hit the watchmaking industry in 1848, has also presented red, white and blue colours across the dial, in order to honour the Apollo 15 patch, while the caseback has an image of the mission's Lunar Rover too.
