Omega Speedmaster Professional Revisited  3 Comments


I have photographed several iterations of the Omega Speedmaster but this one is special - it belongs to me. The Speedmaster for me, is a true collector's watch. While the model has probably sold millions since its launch (in various derivations and limited editions), this watch for me represents one of the crucial stages of human development - space exploration. It succeeded the NASA tests to be used in space and continues to be the preferred watch for astronauts by NASA - which clearly says a lot for a watch that has been around for over four decades.
Its not a perfect watch by any means but the design is clearly a classic withstanding the rages of time and the cycles of watch fashion. It continues to enjoy an important position at Omega for what it represents and it will continue to do so for a long time.
I wanted to share here three images of the watch with a third party strap to show how good it looks on a strong thick waterproof strap and to show how beautiful and intriguing the movement looks. Clearly the complexity of the movement is no reflection of its price (at least in today's prices but there are rumours that Omega plans to raise prices across the board on all its watches).
