PRESENTATION: THE 60th ANNIVERSARY EDITION
The new “MOONWATCH ONLY ” Speedmaster edition has been enriched with numerous new features and additional information.
Many models have been marketed since 2017, date of the previous opus. But that did not seem enough either.
Our research on the various components is ongoing, thanks to the many collectors we are in contact with, and with the help of our friends at the OMEGA Museum. This allowed us to present updated information, mainly on vintage parts, but also on the very last models, for which OMEGA has introduced new features.
The extremely interesting chapter dedicated to personalized models has been enriched with new details, new models, and the story of the Plaisted Polar Expedition, written by Petros Protopapas.
A new chapter dedicated to the astronauts has been included, with a 16-page gallery and detailed descriptions, in collaboration with our friend Philip Corneille.
The Omega Speedmaster not only represents the watch that went with the men to the moon. It is also a fashion icon and an important collectable piece. The book is entirely dedicated to this model: Moonwatch Only. A very useful guide to know everything about Omega Speemaster watches; a book to collect, invest, buy, sell and trade.
Initially designed for automobile racing teams and engineers, the Omega Speedmaster embarked on a very different trajectory when NASA chose it to accompany astronauts heading for the moon in 1965.
Its involvement in the space adventure has propelled the Moonwatch to the top of the list of celebrated timepieces. After years of research and observation, the authors present a complete panorama of the Moonwatch in a systematic work that is both technical and attractive, making it the inescapable reference book for this legendary watch. “Moonwatch Only” represents today an essential guide for those who want to collect, buy, sell, trade and invest in Omega Speedster watches.
This edition starts with the whole history of the Speedmaster and the most important dates, and then it describes in detail:
The authors also give important advices on where and how to buy, how to choose and how maintaining the watch in mint conditions.
