One of a very limited series produced to commemorate the remarkable flight of the Apollo 13 craft and the momentous events that occurred during that mission .Those of you unfamiliar with the story and the importance of the caption "what could you do in 14 seconds" should probably brush up on your history or at least watch the film starring Tom Hanks who plays astronaut Jim Lovell
Firstly I should point out that this incredible collectors item is completely unworn with most of the stickers still remaining as shown in the photographs and is sold as a complete set with all documents ,lapel pin and even the newspaper printed by Omega for this limited run.
There is so much that makes this watch stand out the white dial is clearly a feature as is the snoopy in the center of the dial "saying " failure is not an option ,another reference to the dramatic events of the flight .But this watch is so much more than that the skill involved in the hand finishing process for the case back means that no two watches will ever be the same
Whether bought as an investment for the future or simply to enjoy now I guarantee this is a watch that will provoke great conversations wherever you choose to wear it .
Personally one of my favorite Speedmasters and that comment alone will provoke many comments !
