Original NASA printed photograph for OMEGA watches: «Apollo IX, Scott at work filmed by Schweickart »
One of the Icons of the Lunar Conquest. On the 21th of July 1969, during the Apollo XI mission, Neil Armstrong & Edwin Aldrin walked for the first time on the Moon with an Omega Speedmaster on their wrists. As official NASA supplier, Omega received the right to use the famous photographs of the Lunar Mission. We are pleased to present this original photography printed in Lausanne in 1969, for Omega watches.
March 13 1969, Apollo 9 splashed down in the Atlantic Ocean following a successful 10-day mission. Here, the docked Apollo 9 command and service module and lunar module can be seen during astronaut David R. Scott’s stand-up spacewalk on the fourth flight day of the mission. The primary objective of Apollo 9 was an Earth-orbital engineering test of the first crewed lunar module. Other prime objectives included an overall checkout of rocket and spacecraft systems, the crew and procedures. The flight plan's top priority was rendezvous and docking of the command and service module and the lunar module. All prime mission objectives were accomplished and all major spacecraft systems were successfully demonstrated.
