Lot Essay

The reference 105.003 was produced between 1964 and 1969, and it was this reference that superseded all other brands by passing NASA’s rigorous qualification tests in 1965 that resulted in the OMEGA Speedmaster becoming the official watch used on space missions. This reference is also the last of the Speedmasters with straight lugs, also known as the 'Pre-Professional'. In addition, it is sometimes referred to as the ‘Ed White’ after the first American astronaut to walk in space outside of the space module during the Gemini IV mission of 1965.
