Three Omega Replica Watches that you would be Greatly Interested

It seems that almost all of us probably know exactly which watch Buzz Aldrin was wearing on July 20, 1969, when he touched down on the surface of the Moon. Neil Armstrong left his NASA-issued Omega Speedmaster on board that day, but Buzz’s was still strapped to the outside of his suit. Still, some of us would guess it to be the most significant wristwatch ever made. But unluckily, no one knows where it is.replica watch
So we may concern the question of what does Buzz wear in its place today? Thanks to Omega replicas, which today celebrated the 60th anniversary of the Speedmaster in London, we got the answer from them. And it’s not one watch actually, but rather three that adorn his wrists. On his right arm, he wore the new Omega Speedmaster Moonwatch (keep in mind his role as a brand ambassador), at the same time, on his left, an unusual contraption that combines an 18k yellow gold De Ville Chronoscope with an X-33 and its titanium bracelet, modified to connect both watch heads. Calling this “unique” would be an understatement.
The modern Moonwatch
The fake watches weren’t the only things on his wrists though. Buzz wears quite a few bracelets, including one that spells out his name, and he’s also a bit of a ring man. Aldrin had a ring on nearly every finger, two of them being so-called “Moon Rings,” his mission rings from the Apollo days, and his West Point class ring. Aldrin spoke to a small group of journalists about a few iconic photographs taken during Apollo 11, his expeditions to the North and South Poles, and his desire to see people go to Mars. And he’s not ruling himself out of that mission either!
We were in negotiation with Earth all the time. We felt at home because we could talk to each other. But we wore the watches and we kept them set to the time of the shifts of the people back in mission control. They were on an eight-hour shift. Therefore, there we were on the Moon…but we knew what time it was in Houston, Texas, all the time.omega
James H. Ragan Wearing His Personal Speedmaster
James H. Ragan is the only non-Smithsonian employee authorized to carry historic watches out of the Museum – and that’s because he’s the reason the watches are there in the first place. Ragan was the man at NASA responsible for identifying the horological needs of the agency’s astronauts, and he performed the tests that would eventually lead to NASA picking the Speedmaster over other models for the Gemini and Apollo flight crews. And his influence ended up impacting the Speedmaster itself too – it’s because of him, for example, that Omega added crown guards.
