*** MORE PHOTOS TO FOLLOW ***
The Snoopy Award. Some people think its comical that Snoopy appears on the dial and case back of the Speedmaster, but its there for a very good reason.
In 1970, after Apollo 13 was crippled by the rupture of a Service Module oxygen tank, Jack Swigert's Speedmaster was famously used to accurately time the critical 14-second Mid-Course Correction 5 burn using the Lunar Module's Reaction Control System, which allowed for the crew's safe return. In recognition of this, Omega was awarded the Snoopy Award by the Apollo 13 astronauts, "for dedication, professionalism, and outstanding contributions in support of the first United States Manned Lunar Landing Project."
These are now near impossible to find as a full set.
