One of our friends mailed us these pictures of his stunning Omega Speedmaster Apollo Soyuz Meteorite reference 3188.8.131.52.99.001.. One of our favourite Speedmasters from recent years! Although it takes away a bit of the instrumental look of the standard Professional, the Meteorite dial is such a great match to the Moonwatch heritage!
We’ve posted a wristshot of this killer-Speedy before.. But now it’s time to appreciate this stunner in full view. It didn’t come cheap, but to own a piece of outer-space in a watch with the corresponding heritage – isn’t that priceless?
Note: each of these dials displays a unique pattern, and as such there are no two identical examples to be found. Great stuff.
Omega has brought out quite a number of limited edition Speedmasters in the past few years – yes, we’re trying to be understated here. But one of the best has to be the 3184.108.40.206.99.001 Apollo-Soyuz. A Speedmaster, Professional nonetheless, with a dial made of a material from outer space? Killer. Due to the nature of meteorite, not a single dial is identical to the next.. And it came with a killer caseback – one of the best ever. Stay tuned for in-depth look of this unique specimen.
