OMEGA Speedmaster Moonwatch Professional 42mm Silver Dial 'Concept Watch'
Model Code: CONCEPT£5750.00
Few wristwatches enjoy a legacy like Omega’s Speedmaster. Its time on the wrists of Apollo 11’s crew during the first mission to the moon in 1969 cemented the now legendary ‘Speedy’ as one of history’s most beloved chronographs. Hand-picked by NASA for its functional prowess and durability in an airless environment, the Speedmaster rapidly transcended from an aerospace tool to a design classic. The Speedmaster remains a staple of Omega’s catalogue in 2021 - one of the many great sports chronographs of the ‘60s and ‘70s to dictate designs in the current watch market. Since it’s voyage onboard Apollo 11, the design of Omega’s Moonwatch remains largely untouched. Even the most recent renditions remain intimately and defiantly tied to the timeless makeup of the original. Its complexities are almost mesmerising – with piercing white hands and accents standing before a rich black dial, surrounded by its signature tachymeter ring. It’s a formula that will likely never change, and indeed doesn’t have to. This example, sold in July of 2021, is accompanied by its original packaging, booklets and warranty cards. Intriguingly, this model is fitted with a silver dial - a feature reserved only for Speedmasters made from white gold in thr 1980s. As this model features a traditional steel case and bracelet, it remains a mystery as to why it was sold by Omega in this configuration. As a result, information and referencing are scarce. Overall, this concept model is a rare and unique offset from traditional steel Speedmaster models. A wonderful opportunity to invest.
