OMEGA SPEEDMASTER REF. 105.003-65 ED WHITE
- Technical datas
Omega enters the history when they propose the Speedmaster in 1957 under the reference “CK2915”.
A truly pilot-tested chronograph, tested by NASA who had issued a call for tenders. It is the Speedmaster who wins hands-down the battery of tests, and who will end up accordingly on the wrist of astronauts. It will dress the wrist of Neil Armstrong during the conquest of the Moon on July 20, 1969.
The proposed model is very interesting because it is an Ed White, named after the American astronaut born November 14, 1930 in San Antonio and died accidentally January 27, 1967, known to be the first man to have realized an extravehicular exit.
This model is in a state close to new, a unique and historical model.
