this design avoids the disturbing effects of contact
between the balance-spring and the index pins and
therefore ensures that the stability of rate offered by
the Co-axial escapement is maintained over long
periods of use. the result is reduced friction which
means that there is almost no need for lubrication;
the Co-axial calibres have long service intervals
and the seamaster aqua terra Gmt, which is also
equipped with a silicon balance spring, is delivered
with a four-year warranty.

so much has been written about the rigorous test-
ing that led to the omeGa speedmaster’s being the
only watch qualified for every manned nAsA mission
that it is easy to forget that the very first OMEGA
worn in space was the speedmaster that astronaut
Wally schirra wore during his mercury atlas 8 mis-
sion in october of 1962. to commemorate the 50th
anniversary of the first speedmaster to orbit the
earth, OMEGA has created the speedmaster “First
OMEGA in space” in honour of Wally schirra and his
historic wristwatch.

the OMEGA speedmaster “First OMEGA in space”
edition recalls the watch that schirra bought at a
jeweller in Houston more than half a century ago.       Wally schirra
Inside its 39.70 mm polished, brushed stainless steel
case is the legendary manual-winding calibre 1861,
which earned its reputation as the movement in
the legendary omeGa speedmaster moonwatch.
there is a black aluminium bezel ring with a tachy-
metric scale.
