The Speedmaster ref. CK 2998 was the first Omega to reach space, when astronaut Walter ‘Wally’ Schirra wore the watch during the ‘Sigma 7’ mission of the Mercury Programme in 1962. Schirra had purchased the watch for his own use, but two and a half years later, the Speedmaster would be officially certified by NASA for all manned-missions, launching it into history.
