The Speedmaster Professional needs no introduction. A staple in nearly every collection, and a celebrated reminder of mankind's expeditions into the cosmos. The Speedmaster was the first watch on the moon, yes. It was also the watch that Jack Swigert used to time a 14-second fuel burn to bring the Apollo 13 crew safely back to Earth after an oxygen tank exploded, plunging the crew into peril.
The Speedmaster Day/Date adds additional complications to an already famous and revered timepiece.
“We used the OMEGA watch that Jack had on his wrist and I had to control the spacecraft. Jack timed the burn on the engine to make that correction to get us back home safely.” — Mission Commander James Lovell
