When astronaut Wally Schirra ventured into space on his Mercury “Sigma 7” mission, he was wearing a second generation OMEGA Speedmaster that he had purchased in 1962. This storied chronograph has been confirmed as the first OMEGA in space.
Many of the same model were sold to the Peruvian Air Force (Fuerza Aérea del Perú) with a modified chronograph seconds hand that featured a rounded tip for better visibility. These watches are distinguished by the letters "FAP" engraved on the caseback.
OMEGA also has a long and noble legacy in the world of commercial aviation, having supplied a number of airlines – including Air France, Canadian Pacific Air Lines, Braniff International Airways, Lineas Aereas Mexicanas and Sabena – with exceptional watches for their pilots and crews.
