Speedmaster Automatic "Reduced" 1988
The Space Shuttle Challenger catastrophe took place on January 28, 1986, when the shuttle broke apart at Cape Canaveral 73 seconds after launch. Seven crew members died in the explosion. Two years after the disaster and an extensive cause study, NASA announced its decision to resume the space flights. Thereupon Omega developed the Speedmaster Automatic "Reduced" with calibre 1140 in December 1988. The size was reduced from 42 to 39 mm. Due to its exceptional success this particular chronograph took first place on the Omega list of sales.
