Today our friends over at Ace Jewelers received their very first new Omega Speedmaster box – the one filled with goodies that we wrote about earlier.
The fun starts with the outer box as pictured above. On the center we find the Speedmaster Seahorse. It opens to both sides and it is covered by a black cardboard sleeve.
Inside we find this stellar fabric-covered work of art, perhaps the best bit of the new Speedmaster box. This one too is fitted with a Seahorse medaillon. The lid is secured by two hinges. Apparently the Speedmaster is now not only the Moonwatch, but a Legendary Moonwatch. Cool.
Two new bookles, one about strap changes and one about the Speedmasters history, are found at the bottom of the outer box.
An overview of the inside. The straps, changing tool and extra pushpins fit into the big lid at the top. The loupe fits in the smaller lid at the left.
The loupe is fitted with a tachymeter scale in Speedmaster style. Next to it is the NASA-style velcro strap and on the far left is the NATO-style strap. Both are very nicely done. In terms of quality, the NATO feels a few steps above your average strap.
Branded strap-changing tool and Speedmaster Seahorse coin. The little sachet holds the extra pushpins – four of them.
Detail of the NASA-style strap and the NATO strap. The NATO is fitted with a signed buckle and nice angular keepers.
Last but not least – the Omega Speedmaster Professional 3188.8.131.52.01.005, now fitted with a screwed bracelet!
