In July of 2014 Omega introduced a new box set to go with the Speedmaster Professional Moonwatch, in addition to a new bracelet reference. Below I’ll walk you through all the bits and pieces that come with the ‘Big Box’ Speedmaster Professional – save for the warranty card and it’s sleeve.
Tonight Omega expanded its -by now- vast collection of NATO straps with 24 new variations in celebration of the 2018 Winter Olympics. While most of them are very country-specific, I already spotted a few that I think will also look good beyond the Olympics. In this third installment of our Omega NATO update (part 1, part 2), I’ll fill you in on all the details.

The Speedmaster Professional is an icon. A classic like few other watches. These two are undisputed facts. Period. Not up for discussion.
However, I’d like to add a third term to describe the Speedmaster Professional: a Time Capsule. For two reasons: the watch itself and the pricing. I’ll explain..

We all love the internet. But there is a special kind of magic to books. Sure, nearly everything can be found on the web, but the old skool charm of a nicely filled shelve is hard to beat. Luckily for us, there are quite a few nice ones out there featuring our favorite watch – the Omega Speedmaster. In time we will update this page with info on how to acquire these books, but for now Google is your friend.
The Number 1 Speedmaster Resource. A superb book that goes into detail on everything Moonwatch.
Available in our shop.
The Moon Watch
There were BaselWorld years in which Omega handed out these for free.. But we’re positive you’ll still be able to find them online. Paperback, but a nice -though not comprehensive- overview of the Speedmaster models and history.
Nearly all-picture, but a nice overview of the various sportswatches Omega made throughout the years. Written by the highly-respected John Goldberger.
In our humble opinion a mediocre attempt at a book about Omega. It might look nice on the shelve, but that’s about it.
Omega Speedmaster Master Book
All-Japanese and we don’t read Japanese… But it sure looks interesting! One of the original Speedmaster reference books.
Another one by John Goldberger, now covering the entire Omega brand. Must have.
Omega – A Journey Through Time
We’d be surprised if there’d be a better book published by Omega EVER. Big money, but worth every penny of it if you’re anywhere near interested in this brand.
Written by the recently-retired curator of the Omega Museum – need we say more?
The Master of Omega
The Mondani’s are renowned around the world for publishing first-class books about watches. This one is no exception. It is written by Alberto Isnardi and dedicated to the Omega Speedmaster and Flightmaster.
