I have recently taken a keen interest in cataloging the Speedmasters and other watches worn by the Gemini and Apollo astronauts. My plan is to compile as many of the best quality images, enlarged as best I can, and then catalog the astronaut, mission flown, and the watch reference.

Here are a few images I have found so far after looking through countless high-resolution NASA images.

Not a bad collection of Speedmasters and JB Champion straps.

Ed Mitchell...



Neil Armstrong...

Wally Shirra...

I'm loving the JB bracelets, any idea where I can pick one of those up?

So is it true that Stafford actually flew with his gold Speedy?

Tell me about that...
I've just finished cataloging all Seamaster Chronographs (later 321s, 861s and 1040s) with bracelet and end-pieces reference numbers, sample images and info from Vintage Omega Database :D


Great work, I can imagine how long did it take to complete it!

I picked one up on the bay with the horned end pieces a few months ago. There always seems to be one or two for sale at any given time although not very cheap.

That said, it is a great addition to any Speedmaster and extremely comfortable to wear.

All gold Rolex GMT and All gold Speedy Pro........that's something to note. I never suspect an all gold watch could be a real 'tool' watch, but the fact say differently.
Thanks for sharing, I will cherish my 105.003 more.
