At PrestigeTime.com you can find a full range of the Omega Speedmaster Professional watch collections at discounted pricing. The Speedmaster Professional Moonwatch is one of Omega's most iconic timepieces. Omega Speedmaster watches have been along for the journey on each one of NASA's piloted space mission since March 1965, including the first manned lunar landing in July 1969. Having been worn by astronaut Buzz Aldrin when he stepped on the lunar surface, the Speedmaster Professional Chronograph was the first watch to be worn on the moon, hence the Moonwatch designation. Omega has since produced limited edition Speedmaster watches to commemorate space missions such as NASA's Apollo 11, Apollo 15, Apollo Soyuz & the Apollo XVII.
A more modern interpretation of the classic Omega Speedmaster watches would be the Speedmaster Moonwatch Chronograph which is equipped with OMEGA's calibre 9300/9301 with a Co-Axial escapement & the Si14 silicon balance spring, a perfect blend of the iconic Speedmaster legacy with advanced watchmaking. From the Speedmaster Moonwatch Chronograph Omega offers a spectacular sub-collection made completely of ceramic, aptly named the Omega Speedmaster DARK SIDE OF THE MOON & the GREY SIDE OF THE MOON or otherwise known as the DSOM and GSOM by watch aficionados. The Dark Side has a few themed varieties such as the BLACK BLACK for its completely black look, the SEDNA BLACK for a Black ceramic & Sedna/Rose Gold combination, the PITCH BLACK which is distinguished by Super-Luminova on its dial & bezel and the VINTAGE BLACK which has brown colored Super-Luminova & a stressed brown strap giving the watch a more classic appearance.
Of important historic value are the Speedmaster re-edition models. The notable Speedmaster Mark II watch is a re-edition of a classic model introduced in 1969, this newer version features OMEGA's patented extendable fold-over rack-and-pusher clasp and is powered by the Co-Axial calibre 3330, a self-winding movement complete with an Si14 silicon balance spring and a column-wheel chronograph mechanism. The Speedmaster â€˜57 is named after the iconic first generation Speedmaster model, with subtle nods to the original such as the famed Broad-Arrow hands and straight lugs design.
Omega's Speedmaster Racing collection is a more contemporary design featuring a comfortable 40mm case with a range of color combinations. This Speedmaster Chronograph features a tachymetre scale on the bezel & date display.
While mechanical watches are part of Omega's heritage, an advanced multi-function quartz digital-analog watch is part of the Speedmaster watch line.

The Omega Speedmaster Spacemaster Z-33 is another digital-analog watch full of advanced functions.
