When Apollo 13 malfunctioned and caused the abortion of its journey to the moon, the astronauts onboard had to swiftly repair the spacecraft, and then use the rockets to return to earth. Without advanced computing, the engine activation time had to be calculated by hand. Too long or too short would result in a disastrous end of the mission.
Using their officially issued Speedmaster chronographs, the crew managed to successfully land on earth, and NASA granted Omega a Silver Snoopy Award in recognition of the critical role it played during the crisis. The “Snoopy Award” Speedmaster is a commemoration of such an extraordinary milestone in the history of horology and space exploration. Accompanied with warranty and box, the present watch is a definite collectors item and becoming increasingly desirable. Great investment. Exceptional throughout.
