Top 5 OMEGA Watches
Yeah, this is watch I’m talking about, the first watch to be on the moon, the Omega Speedmaster wore by crew of Apollo 11 and every NASA space flight since. Even though this is a remake of the original Speedmaster, there are very minimal changes made from the original steel-bodied Speedmaster. If this watch can make it to the moon, then it sure can make it anywhere on earth.
