Matte black original stepped 3 registers chronograph dial, untouched original hands, and signed T SWISS MADE T. Powered by calibre 861, 17 jewel manual wind movement.
Case back reads “THE FIRST WATCH WORN ON THE MOON” which differentiates this watch from the later editions, the Moon designation is stamped in a circular pattern around the perimeter of the case back. Watch is in excellent condition, with no scratches or chips on the bezel insert.
Package includes a NOS 1960s Kreisler Stelux bracelet. This is not an Omega bracelet, but it’s actually better quality 34 grams as opposed to 31 grams because the links are solid steel as opposed to folded.
