Omega Speedmaster Apollo 11 35th Anniversary LE

Posted on

The Omega Speedmaster Moonwatch Apollo 11 35th Anniversary Limited Edition watch, this one I regret selling one of the best moon watches you can buy with a Panda Dial.  This Omega is standard 42mm manual wind moonwatch with Caliber 1861 with 48 hours power reserve water resistant to 50m with plexi glass, dates to around 2004 so relatively a modern watch but highly collectible with 3500 pieces made in total.

The stunning Panda dial white with black sub dials really stands out, any thing Panda Dial collectors love and command more money.  The Caseback is one of the nicest caseback’s Omega have done the watch was to commemorate the 35th Anniversary of Apollo 11, 1969 – 2004.

Omega have made plenty of Limited Edition watches to commemorate the Apollo landing but this one of the ones to have, prices last few years gone through the roof for a modern Omega which was around £2500 new in 2004. Prices are crazy selling for double the Rrp. The Omega moonwatch is a great seller for Omega “The First Watch Worn on The Moon” is a great taking piece but moon watches can be a bit of pain when they stop being manual wind watch. They do make automatic versions but are not based on the original moonwatch they have a co-axial automatic movement which collectors not as keen on.  The Vintage Moonwatch pre 1970 coming highly collectible but in that said vintage watches in general are Vintage Rolex, Vintage Omega, Vintage Heuer……

Hands On With Omega Speedmaster Co-Axial 311.30.44.51.01.002

Hands On With Omega Speedmaster Chronograph Co-Axial 311.30.44.51.01.002 44.25mm, this is one of the nicest watches I have owned in the Speedmaster range it unfortunately does not come under the standard Moonwatch as its a automatic not manual wind.  But this model came out a few years ago they first introduced a 42mm version around 6 / 7 years ago, and this speedmaster came from the latest version of the Planet Ocean 45mm.  The watch in a nut shell  is a Planet ocean movement 9300 put in a speedmaster 44mm case both chronograph watches around 45mm with a see through caseback so its cater for the speedy lovers with size of a Plant Ocean!!

The Speedmaster 44.25mm in stainless steel with sapphire glass and sapphire caseback with a matt black dial with date function at the bottom, the infamous Omega tachymetre bezel and comes on the newer style Speedmaster bracelet. The watch is a stunning piece great size and great presence on the wrist due to size, I have always been a sucker for Moonwatch but this one took me by surprise and bonus of automatic movement which the Moonwatch does not have.
Omega Speedmaster
The Moonwatch is thee watch of all the speedmasters cousins of cousins DNA, I would not like to say how many where produced and still being produced in the Speedmaster range that’s with without the special editions and limited editions.  But prices of Omega are getting ridiculous these days they used to be very well priced and value for the money pieces. This Speedmaster is a eye watering £5840 and the secondhand re-sale is good but not as good as the king “Rolex” which dominates every market for re-sale value and is number one brand to own and want. I love Omega but love Rolex more!!

The Best of Basel 2017 Omega Content

As the title says the best of Basel 2017 a video by Hodinkee of the Omega Boutique at Basel.  As this year is 60th anniversary of the Omega so they decided to bring some special pieces that will launch later on in the year. 3557 individual pieces of Railmaster CK2914, Speedmaster CK2915, Seamaster CK2913 and 557  of the trilogy set which consists of all 3 watches for the true Omega collectors. The cost of the set is $21000 and the indivdiuals watches range from $6900 for the railmaster.

All great pieces which are great re-makes of the original classics which Omega tried to make them as close to the originals but with a modern twist. I doubt they will not be a hit when they hit the Omega boutiques.  I am considering buying one of the watch watches myself the Speedmaster is the one for me.

Omega Speedmaster Moonwatch 3570.50.00

As the title says following are recent blogs of the SpeedMaster Moon watch, this is the modern version of the moonwatch st 145.022 it has not changed much since the previous model st145.022.  They has been a few subtle changes the dial is luminova rather than aged tritium dials which started around late 90s. The bracelet has been updated to modern style and feel with brushed and polished finish and a lot more robust.  The movement has been updated from Cal 861 to 1861 not sure what they did more than likely a slight modification on the Cal 861 which has been in moon watches for over 20 years.

The look is still the same with hesalite crystal and tachymetre bezel also the caseback is the same as previous model st 145.022, the changes  overhaul are very minor, the biggest change is the look modern or vintage which just comes down to taste personally vintage look for me always.  The luminova dials glow really bright in the dark as the vintage stuff does not glow at all as tritium loses its luminosity the longer it ages.

There is actually an newer version to this model, made a few years back only difference is they gave this a new model number and updated the bracelet with screws and a pins instead of the pin and tube just to make it easy to remove links and possibly less chance of age related stretch.  However they added a huge briefcase style box that weighs a ton and bumped the price up to £3390 from around £2700 but the actual watch head stayed the same.

If your are looking for a modern speedmaster moonwatch this is the one to buy 3570.50.00 if you want a vintage moonwatch then look for the st 145.022 as prices are still good and not gone crazy yet.  The earlier moon watches are stupid crazy money and hard to find.
