Omega Speedmaster "First Omega in space" ltd edition
launched in 2012 this Omega Ltd edition tribute to the original historically important model worn in space on October 3, 1962, by U.S. astronaut Walter Schirra received rave reviews from the trade press as an affordable manually wound chronograph with great history,
Today as I offer you this completely unworn example from January 2013 you cant help but consider how unaffordable to most people vintage Speedmasters from the early sixties have become and what a fantastic opportunity this model actually represents to wear something with real vintage appeal and heritage.
At 39.7 mm it is a perfect size for anyone to wear today and the 1861 cal movement is a manual wind as was the original 1962 model ,Its also nice that the dial and even the hands are copies of the original model .
Yours to decide ,buy this and leave it in a box for fifty more years and see what happens or as I really hope you do you wear ,enjoy it and look after it and I am sure your investment will be repaid emotionally and financially.
