Omega Speedmaster lmt edition Alaska Project.

“The Alaska Project was led by Pierre Chopard from 1971 to 1973 to improve the Speedmaster by creating a watch suited to the low temperatures in space. The Swiss patent CH 537170 was granted on 31 May, 1973, for an outer case designed to protect the watch from extreme temperature variations. The watch’s dial was coated with zinc oxide; this material provided the highest resistance to solar radiation. NASA’s response to the prototype, however, was that they saw no need to improve on the Speedmaster.”
