Omax Spaceman Automatic

Here is the second of my Spaceman watches that I've posted, and I think it was the first one that I bought.

The Spaceman watches were designed by André Le Marquand to commemorate the 1969 space launch. He was commissioned by Claude Lebet and Francis Bourquin, the owner and director of Catena Bulle Switzerland, and came up with this unique design. The watches were released under various companies, including Omax like today's model.

Various different versions were released with manual or automatic mechanical movements, and with or without date. This particular one has a date at the 3 o'clock position, and has an automatic movement.

The back of the watch features the moulded fiberglass picture of a Spaceman as with the other models. It also has a Dupont Corfam (artificial leather) strap which is in one piece and fits around the watch head.
