1992 might not be a year that's widely spoken of when discussing the Omega Seamaster 300M Replica timeline. But I assure it surely deserves a lot more talking up.
50 years prior, Omega concluded a project they called the 27 CHRO C12, which yielded the calibre 321 (Omega's version of the CH 27). 15 years later, in 1957, the same calibre 321 took on the task of powering the Omega Seamaster 300M Replica in its first decade. Let me be clear: That accounts for six of the Omega Seamaster 300M Replica's initial references,Omega Seamaster 300M Replica
the 2915, the 2998, ST 105.002, ST 105.003, ST 105.012 and ST 145.012. Of which, it was the ST 105.003 that earned the Omega Seamaster 300M Replica its stamp of approval from NASA --Flight Qualified for all Manned Space Missions.
The Calibre 321 is Omega's adaptation of the venerable Lemania 2310, better known to the watch collecting community as the CH 27

The calibre 321 was a triumph of engineering that proved its worth on earth, the moon and in the nothingness of space. Ken Kessler told the story in his earlier Omega Seamaster 300M Replica roundup article, saying that, "At 56 hours into flight, on April 13, 1970 a ruptured fuel tank on Apollo 13 lunar module had caused all of its electrical systems to shut down.
"Soon after, the crew lost the majority of power to the craft. They knew that their only option for survival was to use the moon's gravitational pull to slingshot them around and back to earth.Ulysse Nardin Replica Watches
But there was one major problem -- the angle of the craft's re-entry. Too steep and it would burn up upon re-entry; too shallow and the craft would bounce off earth's atmosphere, leaving the crew floating helplessly into space.
"Using Jim Swiggert's Omega Omega Seamaster 300M Replica, the crew used the lunar module's manually controlled descent propulsion engine to create a precisely timed, 14 second mid-flight course correction. This allowed them to re-enter the earth's atmosphere successfully causing both the astronauts and the watch that saved them to indelibly become inked into one of the most remarkable moments in human history."
