Originally introduced in 1957, the Omega Speedmaster range has a storied history and was initially designed as a line of sports watches. However, despite being constructed to meet the requirements of race car drivers and military pilots, the timepieces soon became associated with space exploration. In 1969, a manual-wind Speedmaster Professional owned by Buzz Aldrin became the first watch ever worn on the surface of the moon. Although the Speedmaster Professional, or 'Moonwatch', is the best-known model in the collection, many variations exist such as the Speedmaster Racing, which comes with a 'tachymeter' feature, enabling wearers to accurately measure speed, and many others. The Speedmaster's association with space exploration and the military has helped to firmly establish its reputation for reliability. In fact, the watches have been subjected to rigorous NASA testing, remaining dependable even in extreme conditions.
