The watch features a 925 silver, hand-patina dial embossed with the Apollo XVII patch, an illustration executed to represent Man, the Future, the Recollection of Apollo, and the American flag. Both the dial and its blackened hands are protected by a scratch-resistant sapphire crystal. The 42-mm case is in stainless steel, with both polished and brushed finishes, and has a black tachymeter scale on the bezel. The case is water-resistant to 50 meters (167 feet) and is attached to a stainless steel bracelet.
The movement is the Omega 1861 manual-winding chronograph caliber, the same movement used in the very first Speedmaster to be called “Moonwatch.”
The screw-down caseback of this limited edition features the brand’s familiar seahorse emblem and is also engraved with “THE LAST MAN ON THE MOON,” a reference to Cernan’s place in space exploration history; “DECEMBER 14, 1972,” the date of the milestone; “APOLLO XVII,” “40TH ANNIVERSARY,” and “LIMITED EDITION” followed by the series number of the watch, from “0001” to “1,972.” The price is $7,200.
