Footnotes

  • In 1965 Edward Higgins 'Ed' White (1930-1967) was the first American to 'walk in space'. The Omega ref.105.003 has been coined the 'Ed White' as it was on the wrist of White during this historic milestone in space exploration.

    The production period of the 105.003 was very short, lasting around 3 years from 1963. In 1966 it was superseded by the 'Professional' ref.105.012 famously worn on the moon in 1969. Features that typify the pre-moon Speedmaster are the lack of Professional to the dial, a symmetrical case, no crown guards and straight lugs.
