1969 Speedmaster Tribute to Apollo XI Ref. BA 145.022

$ 50,000

  • This is the stunning Speedmaster Tribute to Apollo XI that was made to commemorate NASA’s first moon landing in 1969. Its dial was unique amongst Speedies because of its square black markers and the fact that it was crafted out of solid gold. 1,014 pieces were made for the public, with inscriptions on its solid caseback in reference to the historic moon landing.

    The watch is in superb mint condition, complete with its unique markers against the champagne dial and fit with a triple-link gold bracelet. The charming burgundy DON bezel is slightly faded, save for very minor scratches on the surface and along the edges. It is powered by the very reliable 861 calibre that was approved by NASA for its space missions.


    In very good condition. Moderate signs of wear on the original solid gold bracelet, clasp and bezel. Burgundy bezel insert is a little discoloured but there are no bare spots, and tachymeter markings remain distinct. Dial, hands, markers and crystal, pristine. On the back, lacquered engraving is sharp and clear.
