Every year Omega watch introduces a limited edition style

Every year OMEGA introduces a limited edition Speedmaster watch during the Baselworld exhibition. Not everyone likes the fact that there are so many limited editions as it takes away the exclusivity of these omega seamaster replica uk. Every 5 years, OMEGA introduces a limited edition Speedmaster to commemorate the Apollo 11 mission and the fact that it was then that men set foot on the Moon for the first time, wearing a Speedmaster. To be honest, I don’t mind seeing a new limited edition Speedmaster Professional every year. Until now, most of these limited edition tend to do very well after a few years on the market (and sold out at authorized dealers). I guess the Apollo 11 40th Anniversary edition will be one of them too.
Darren Townend sent us these pictures of his OMEGA Speedmaster Pro Apollo 11 40th Anniversary edition. Darren is a true Speedmaster fan and owns several of them. He is also active on the A. Lange&Sohne replica uk.
The Speedmaster Professional 311. 30. 42. 30. 01. 002 came with a nice black presentation box including a silver medallion to commemorate the Apollo 11 lunar mission.
The sub dial at 9 o’clock also feature a silver medallion, showing you the American eagle. This limited edition Speedmaster Apollo 11 edition is restricted to 7969 pieces only. It may sound like a large number, but I’d like to remind you of the Speedmaster Snoopy edition that was also limited to 5441 pieces and there is no fun anymore in buying that one from the (pre-owned) market.
Inside the Speedmaster Professional Apollo 11 edition ticks the Lemania based caliber 1861 movement. The famous handwound caliber, one of the few movements that OMEGA did not apply the Co-Axial movement to. Although it is a very nice chronograph http://www.westpluseast.com/uk-replica-romain-jerome-watches-best-sale.html movement to observe (although the caliber 1863 is even prettier), I love the stainless steel caseback on this particular edition.
