Apollo 15 35th Anniversary

In 2006, Omega introduced this limited edition Speedmaster Professional to commemorate the 35th anniversary of the Apollo 15 mission. On this mission, NASA astronauts Scott, Worden, and Irwin traveled to the Moon and were the first to drive the lunar rover on the Moon surface (see NASA's image, below).

A bi-color Speedmaster

This Speedmaster Professional reference 3366.51 is not the first model to come in (pink) gold and steel, but there aren't many out there either. In the early 1980s, Omega started experimenting with bi-color Speedmasters for the first time. This Speedmaster Apollo 15 35th anniversary edition was perhaps its time ahead, as we only see the interest in gold and bi-color watches increasing again. This watch was limited to 1971 pieces and we have to admit, that we don't come across one very often. Even during our Speedy Tuesday World Tour that we did last year and where we met with hundreds of fans, I can't recall seeing one in the flesh.

Apollo 15 mission patch

On the case back, you will find the Apollo 15 mission patch. The design of the Apollo 15 mission patch was submitted by Italian dress designer Emilio Pucci and the crew of Scott, Worden, and Irwin, modified Pucci’s design and colors a bit. Behind the three birds (that presumably represent the crewmen), we can see the lunar surface of the landing site.

"That’s why I find this Omega Speedmaster Professional Apollo 15 35th anniversary edition from 2006 so fascinating. It is a bi-color watch, which is somewhat more divisive, to begin with. Less controversially, however, it has the Apollo 15 mission patch on the case back — that’s an elegant touch that I’m sure few would find unappealing." - Robert-Jan Broer in this article on Fratello's magazine.

This watch comes with a special grey painted wooden box with the Apollo XV mission patch on top of it, a white cardboard box, an Omega instruction manual, a black leather cardholder with the International Warranty Card, the Certificate of Authenticity and some original purchase documentation.

 

Condition

When buying pre-owned, the condition is key. That’s what we fully understand here at Fratello, as we are collectors ourselves for many years (decades). This bi-color Speedmaster Professional 3366.51 from 2006 was purchased and kept by the first owner. The first owner cherished this watch and the condition is proof of that. We offer this rare Speedmaster Professional Apollo XV 35th anniversary as a complete set and in mint condition. The pink gold color is definitely something else for a change and it will also look good on a brown leather strap, as the authors of Moonwatch Only showed in their books.
