When referring to the perfect fake watches entering the space, the first one you think of must be the Speedmaster of Omega. It became the first model appearing on the moon in July, 1969. Therefore we called that magnificent model as “moon watch”. In fact, the watches entering the moon and space include Rolex and Breitling.
In 1969, Buzz Aldrin entered on the surface of the moon. At that time, what he wore was exactly the professional Omega Speedmaster copy watch. As the official timekeeper of NASA, Omega defeated many competitors. It has withstood the severe temperature fluctuations of 93ºC to -18ºC, as well as the test under different environments such as high pressure, low pressure, and strong corrosion.
In searching the history of NASA, there’s a watch unexpectedly appeared in front of us. That was a ref.1680 Submarine of Rolex. This Rolex imitation watch with Oystersteel case was worn by Cameron, astronaut of NASA in the 1990s.
