In celebration of the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 moon landing, Omega just debuted a very cool special edition Speedmaster.

The commemorative timepiece is clad with a 42mm stainless steel case with matching bracelet, a polished ceramic bezel ring with tachymeter scale, 18K 'Moonshine Gold' hands, a special '11' detail at 11 o'clock, and a laser-engraved subdial that features Buzz Aldrin climbing down onto the lunar surface. It's powered by a manually-wound Master Co-Axial Caliber 3861 with a 50-hour power reserve and comes in an especially striking presentation case that includes a lunar module model, a viewing loupe, two Apollo-related patches, and a spare cork-coated velcro strap along with the necessary strap-changing tool.

Limited to 6,969 pieces, it will hit authorized dealers this July with a price tag of $9,650.
