Since 1969, Omega creates these Apollo XI editions and you could say that they are a recurring ‘limited edition’ since 1989. Every 5 years there’s a Speedmaster Apollo XI to be introduced. Next one will be in 2019, when the Apollo XI missions celebrates its 50th anniversary. In this article, we’ll show you all the Omega Speedmaster Apollo XI models thus far.
This example here is an Omega Speedmaster Apollo XI 20th Anniversary Ref. 1450022 full set circa 1995. This pieces are limited to 2000 units, and here’s offered for sale one of them.
This particular example is in very good condition; barely worn (some people call it LNOS as Like New Old Stock). The twisted lugs are sharp as knifes. The engraved case back is unpolished with the red punch still present showing it has never been opened before.
The dial is perfect, and untouched; black matte with yellowy trtium lume patina. The lume still conserves its function, and glows in the dark when it absorbs some light. The bezel remains in very good condition too, with no marks. The acrylic crystal has very few minor scratches.
It comes suited on the original stainless steel bracelet and with the complete kit of boxes, booklets and guarantee card.
