Gold Omega Speedmaster 1980 Apollo XI 345.0802 Stafford Watch

Introduced in 1979, but only delivered to the market in 1980. Chuck Maddox referred to it as 11 years after Apollo 11. I first saw this model on the wrist of astronaut Tom P. Stafford, when I was in Sochi in 2014. This best quality replica Omega Speedmaster model was in production from 1980 till approximately 1987. I have a German Omega catalog from that period, stating a list price of 23.000DM, which is about €11.500,- Euro (just as a rough conversion, no inflation etc).

This watch is not a limited edition, but it was a time limited production and the watches were numbered. The general assumption is that there are approximately 300 of these, of which half went to the German market. 20 pieces were done in white gold, all for the German market. it has a display back (snap-on, not screwed-down) showing the caliber 861L movement. The ‘luxury finish’ variant of the famous Lemania based caliber 861. If you look closely, you will see that it is basically the same as the caliber 1861 movement Omega started using in 1997 for all Moonwatch models.
