1967 Omega “All American Astronauts Wear In Space” Speedmaster Professional

This is a rarer ad, available less than a handful of times throughout the year. It’s full-color and the perfect example of how Omega proudly announced to the public their role in space exploration - that NASA chose and astronauts wear the Speedmaster. It’s easy to imagine that this very ad prompted so many to purchase Speedmasters given the interest and fascination with space missions during that day and age. 

Of course this ad predates Buzz, Neil and Michael’s fame, but it does feature the Moonwatch. And if the color nature of the ad, fantastic shot of likely a reference 105.012 and Ed White’s cameo aren’t enough, then consider its historical significance… It’s an artifact that documents a partnership that undoubtedly made Omega what it has become. A connection and relationship that endures to this day, that still pulls people to the brand, like gravity…  

This ad is a great way to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the moon landing and inspire you to keep learning about and collecting Speedmasters. 

Framed with entire page “floating,” mounted on black sheen background and off-white matting to compliment tones of paper. Black, solid wood frame.

About our collaboration with Ad Patina

We're thrilled to be collaborating with our longtime friends at Ad Patina to bring you a selection of the most-popular and rare vintage watch advertisements curated specifically for Analog/Shift!

Scouring the world for forgotten marketing treasures, Ad Patina's raison de être very much mimics our own - to hunt down these wonderful bits of history, preserve and restore them as needed, and share them with an enthusiastic community.

These documents of horological history have entered the watch collecting conversation as the ultimate accompanying accessory, and have found themselves framed in homes and offices around the world. Every one of these wonderful pieces is a genuine, vintage advertisement that has been professionally mounted and framed with UV resistant glass to ensure years of enjoyment to come - no reprints or reproductions here!

Much like a traditional piece of art - a painting or photograph - an original watch advertisement can be appreciated for its design as well as for its power to evoke nostalgia.

Something we vintage watch enthusiasts know all about!
