Omega Speedmaster Moonwatch Professional Chronograph 42mm carries the standard tachymeter. This watch has a 30-minute counter on the 3 o’clock position, 12-hour counter on the 6 o’clock and a constant seconds counter on the 9 o’clock position. The dial has the distinctive black and white contrast that is symbolic of the Omega Speedmaster models. The dial itself is black while the indexes, hour, minute, second hands and the hour markers are colored in white. The three counters are also done in white color. This is vitally important for easy readability and would’ve definitely come in handy during the space missions.

During the 1964-1965 period, the “Professional” name was added to Speedmaster. It would go further cement its legacy as NASA’s go-to watch for space missions because of the events that occurred on Apollo 13. There were an explosion and rupture on one of the oxygen tanks that cause major internal failure on the spacecraft during the Apollo 13 mission. It’s not only the source of Oxygen that diminishes quickly for the crew but the navigational and directional equipment was malfunctioning too. In order to get the Astronauts safely back to the earth, they need to fire the engines at the right time to be able to enter the Earth’s atmosphere at precisely the right angle. To sum up, Omega Speedmaster has come to the rescue due to the computer and certain technological systems are failing.

The design of Omega Speedmaster Moonwatch Professional Chronograph 42mm is just as iconic as the watch itself. Even if the dial is relatively unchanged over the course of its lifespan, it is still beautiful. The current Speedmaster Moonwatch professional carries the standard tachymeter. Omega Speedmaster Moonwatch Professional Chronograph 42mm has a 30-minute counter on the 3 o’clock position, 12-hour counter on the 6 o’clock so also a constant seconds counter on the 9 o’clock position. Also, the dial has a distinctive black and white contrast that’s symbolic of the Omega Speedmaster models. The dial is black while the indexes, hour, minute, second hands and the hour markers are white so also with the three counters. It’s readable and can be handy during space missions.

Omega Speedmaster Moonwatch Professional Chronograph 42mm can be worn on a 7-inch wrist without the lugs protruding out. If it’s worn with a steel bracelet the watch feels very on the wrist. Omega Speedmaster Moonwatch Professional Chronograph 42mm is approximately 14mm in height, it means that while it does stand tall it’s not everyday wear. Omega Speedmaster Moonwatch Professional Chronograph 42mm looks good regardless of the strap that’s matched with.
