From 2010 onwards I have been collecting mechanical watches. I really loved those icon watches. It all started with the stainless steel bracelet fake Omega Seamaster Professional 300M Peter Blake. And I had a wishlist. Definitely Speedmaster, Navigator, Monaco, Reverso, Submariner, etc.
October 2013, I went to the first Speedy Tuesday Event, organized by Watches at ESA in Noordwijk, the Netherlands (photo report here). One problem: I still didn’t own a Speedmaster. So I brought my Omega Seamaster copy. Strangely enough, I did buy watches in the meantime, even iconic watches like the TAG Heuer Monaco, but never a Speedmaster.
Every time when choosing a new watch, I thought, “Let’s not buy the Speedy now.” There are enough of them Speedys out there to get one someday. I still was convinced that for a serious collector a Speedmaster is a must-have.
It took me until 2018 to get my own black dial Omega Speedmaster replica watch. I was celebrating my 25th anniversary at work and decided that this moment had to be commemorated with a special watch. In the industry I was working, the saying, “Reach for the Stars and land on the Moon,” was very popular.
This brought me to choosing the From The Moon to Mars Speedmaster. Traditional hand-winding and a Hesalite crystal combined with radiant sub-registers representing the Earth, the Moon, and Mars. It connected the past, landing on the Moon, to the future, space missions to Mars — from experience to aspiration. A watch that fits perfectly to the occasion.
So I am very proud to present you with my best 1:1 Omega Speedmaster Moonwatch copy watch from Moon to Mars – reference 3577.50.00
Thank you for reading my Speedy story and thank you Fratello for organizing and serving the global Speedy community. You are a great inspiration and give us the opportunity to celebrate our love and passion for the Omega Speedmaster.
