Apollo 15 Speedmaster 35th Anniversary Limited Edition

Apollo 15 Speedmaster 35th Anniversary Limited Edition

Limited Edition Moonwatches based on NASA missions are always in demand. The low number created along with special extra features mean Collectors and those who are after something a little different flock to them. Having collectors buying watches is both good and bad for our business. Collectors do wear watches sparingly and look after them so when we buy from them we can be assured of a good condition timepiece. However, the downside is that they also consume product like a black hole as these watches almost never make it back onto the market as they become ‘part of a collection’. This can lead to some once plentiful timepieces being added to the ‘endangered list’ as the years go on.

Today we have such a watch, the Omega Speedmaster Professional Moonwatch Apollo 15 Limited Edition. Based on the evergreen Moonwatch this model is one for those who like their Speedmasters with a little added understated bling. The 18K rose gold bezel, pushers and crown are complimented by the same colour dial accents and hands. The rose gold adds class to this classic, but not at the expense of the clean design as it is subtly done. The case back features a full colour rendition of the Apollo 15 patch as worn by the Astronauts on their suits. This is etched into the sapphire crystal, very cool!
