"Houston I just saw a rabbit flying by...": Omega Speedmaster Professional

That is what Neil Armstrong going to say if the Chinese Fairytale comes alive in the moon..... So we won't have the fancy saying of "That's one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind." In Chinese fairytale... there are a man "Wu Gang", a goddess Chang-e and a jade rabbit with a tree on the moon.... Neil Armstrong and his crew as well as those NASA engineers and scientists at their Houston base would collapse with disbelieve!!!!

Why talking about Neil Armstrong???? Well this is the first watch wore on the moon by mankind.... Whether Aliens wear any watches? 

Omega Speedmaster Professional "Moon watch"

I purchased this watch from a friend's shop as second hand. I am never a big fan of Omega to start with... and Speedmaster is the only model I am willing to pay for. Prior to this I have another Speedmaster automatic. This watch is equipped with the omega cal.1861 movement. Omega Speedmaster professional used Cal.861 movement until 1996. The 18 jewels rhodium plated cal 1861 is based on Lemania 1873 movement and has a vibration rate of 21,600 vph. The most beautiful part of this watch is its caseback which has the words "Flight Qualified by NASA for All Manned Space Missions" and "The First Watch Worn on the Moon".
