On 50 years of landing on moon, Sotheby’s to auction iconic Omega Speedmasters

Sotheby’s upcoming auction, “Omega Speedmaster: To the Moon and Back | Celebrating 50 years since Apollo 11” will be held on July 19 in New York.

“The Omega Speedmaster is arguably one of the most iconic sports watches to ever come to market, and was the leading choice of astronauts for more than five decades,” states the auction house’s official website. “These pieces are complemented by a tightly curated selection of Omega Speedmasters, all vetted by the manufacture themselves. For decades, the Speedmaster has signified the kind of quality and reliability that has made it the only designated timepiece fit to wear on the moon. This dedicated Omega sale is an incredible way to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the event that defined a generation, while paying homage to the watch that helped NASA accomplish missions for over half a century.”
