  • The Omega Speedmaster made history when it recorded mans first steps on the Moons surface back in 1969, and from that moment this watch has been known for its reliability and durability around the world. Having been a part of all six lunar missions, the legendary Speedmaster is the representation of the brand’s adventurous pioneering spirit along with proving just how robust the watch is.

    This particular edition of the iconic Speedmaster professional was originally intended to celebrate the well known fictional lunar explorer Tintin. Specifically the 16th volume of Tintin adventures `Destination Moon`, which was first published in 1950, just shy of 20 years prior to Apollo 11. The rocket which featured in this Tintin volume featured distinctive checked red and white paintwork, and was where the inspiration for the the minute track of this Speedmaster originated as well as the reason for the red inscriptions engraved on the caseback. The dial was also originally intended to display a rocket at eleven o’clock, however the collaborative talks with the owners of the Hergé estate soon fell apart, leaving only one completed example which is unfortunately not for public view. Due to the short lived nature of this collaboration, the was was eventually called the `Omega Speedmaster Professional Racing` and were sold in very low numbers, making this both a great investment and also a modern classic.
