This watch is not an Automatic.

It is a hand-wind mechanical movement.

Okay, adding more information here as there seems to be a fair amount of confusion throughout this thread.

THIS IS NOT THE SAME AS A CURRENT SPEEDMASTER PROFESSIONAL

This is a 50th Anniversary model called The First Omega in Space, based on a Reference 2998 Speedmaster that was worn aboard the Mercury Atlas 8 by Wally Schirra in 1962. It differs from a standard Moonwatch in several ways - first of all the case is smaller by almost 3mm, there are no crown guards, the hands are are Broad Arrow design, there is no "professional" text on the dial, and the Omega symbol is applied rather than printed. For some reason they also included a sapphire crystal instead of the more appropriate Hesalite.

This is not to say that it isn't a cool watch, but anyone considering purchasing it needs to be aware that this isn't the standard Omega Speedmaster Professional with a different dial and hands. The movements are the same though.

This watch signifies a great deal of what is wrong with society.

Note , this is hesalite crystal, which means it's made of hard plastic. There may be folks here that would say they like the look of the Helsalite, but I absolutely hated it. The reason for Omega putting a hesalite in Speedy initially was so if it breaks in space, it doesn't break into a million pieces. Most of us are not going to be flying in space anytime soon, so in my opinion this could have been switched to a more expensive Saphire. Yes, there is history attached to it, but it's not like the movement was not changed (in fact, it's been changed multiple times- look it up). After spending a lot of time trying to get the plastic to look new, I ended up selling it on ebay.

OP, this is not Automatic, please change your title. This watch is hand-wound and nothing is wrong with that. Excellent 1861 Lemania movement too.

The FOIS doesn't come with bracelet version. You would need to find the Professional Speedy if you want the bracelet.

I am a proud owner of a FOIS, number 3586 Smilie

You are right. I didn't catch that when I read the title. Only the reduced version of the Speedy has the automatic movement
