Second Hand Omega Speedmaster Professional

Second Hand Omega Speedmaster Professional

The Omega watch company have been in existence since 1848 and have built up a very fine reputation throughout the world for high quality watches.

Some of the history of the Omega watch includes:

  • They became one of Switzerland’s first Industrial wristwatch manufacturers by 1900.
  • They have a history of doing the timing of Olympic games since 1932.
  • NASA in 1965 chose the Omega Speedmaster Professional as its official chronograph for the crew of the Apollo 11 to be worn on July 21 1969 when Neil Armstrong and Buz Aldrin, took their first steps on the moon.
  • James Bond has been wearing Omega watches for over twenty years. The first film they used Omega watches was in “Golden Eye” in 1995.

Today watches are not only an item to be worn for the practical purpose of telling the time but they have become so much more than that. Quality watches are now a fashion accessory and are now regarded as a status symbol giving some perceived indication of the wearer’s style and wealth.

Why do Watches Appreciate in value?

The watch brands, models, material used in the construction, exclusivity of the watch, reputation, age and the movement all contribute to establishing if a watch will appreciate in value in the coming years.

Throughout Omega’s watch making history, their main competitor has been Rolex and although Rolex watches are highly desirable and collectable, they generally have a different set of clients; maybe younger with a not so ostentatious look. Omega has in the last 50 years focused a huge amount of its attention on the branding and marketing of their watches using high profile celebrities to promote their watches worldwide.

Omega is, without a doubt, a very fine luxury watch brand that originated in Switzerland and is now owned by Swatch. Their watches are highly regarded in the watch and collectors market place and if you are sensible with your choice after doing some research, then you will have a purchased a luxury watch that will appreciate in value year on year.

Is an Omega watch a good Investment?

Omega watches are a well-respected and high quality stylish timepiece brand that over the years has moved with the times developing its range but not compromising in anyway on its quality and desirability.

In order for the purchase of an Omega watch to be a sound investment, it is important to understand that if you are purchasing a new watch from a retail showroom, the value of the watch will disintegrate immediately. This is not a poor reflection on Omega watches but it is just the norm on generally all watch sales. Vintage watches are where you will earn your money. Firstly before you purchase a vintage Omega watch, do your research. An original vintage Omega watch is what all self-respecting watch collectors are looking for. Along with the watches original box and papers and the watch being in good condition. These are all the hallmarks of a solid investment.

Here at Watches of Westminster, we specialise in Vintage watches of all brands and have a number of vintage Omegas for sale. Feel free to browse our second hand and vintage watch sales page and if you have a watch to sell or Part Exchange just get in contact.

Omega Speedmaster Professional Moon Watch

The Amazing Omega Speedmaster 321 Moon Watch (ST 105 102)
Omega Speedmaster First Watch On The Moon

 

Here at Watches of Westminster, we are passionate about the Speedmaster 321 pre moon watch. It is often referred to as the “Speedy” and started its life way back in 1957 as part of the Omega “Professional” collection. The idea of the “Speedy” was that it was introduced as a Chronograph for racing and sports. It was an Omega watch that continued the Aura around Omega’s position as the official timekeeper for the Olympic Games. This, at the time, was heralded as a huge achievement.

The story goes that in the early 1960”s, the astronaut’s kept pushing NASA to introduce a Certified and Official timepiece for all space missions.
In order for this watch to be considered for travelling to space and its more important status as the “first watch worn on the Moon”, NASA decided to short list a number of watches. The “Speedy” was on the list and they expressed an interest in testing the watch and made an enquiry to Omega with regard to the Speedmaster 105:003. Omega jumped at this opportunity.

Omega Speedmaster Professional Moon Watch tests, we understand, included for Noise levels, Humidity levels, Temperature levels, Oxygen levels, Shock, Decompression, Quality and obviously time keeping. There are numerous stories on this process and who was involved but the bottom line was that after countless and very methodical testing on the “Speedy” along with a Rolex, Hamilton and Longines-Wittnaur watches in 1964-1965, the “Speedy” was the chosen watch by NASA. This was a huge accolade in the 1960’s but is even greater now.

So the milestone of this watch happened on July 20th 1969 when the Apollo X1 crew of Neil Armstrong and Buz Aldrin landed on the moon wearing there Speedmasters and the rest is, as you say, history It is now talked of the “Moon watch”.

But for us here at Watches of Westminster, it is not just about the history. The watch is a lovely 42mm size which was certainly unusual in the 1960’s along with having the most respected Calibre 321 movement which actually was introduced way back in 1942.

A collaboration between Omega and Lemania, It is regarded as one of the best Chronographs ever produced. But the ultimate accolade for this 1960’s watch is that the modern day version is very similar in style and looks to the “Moonwatch” emphasising the fact that it has lasted the test of time and is a true vintage classic and a watch on the top of most collectors list.

We have this watch for on sale on our sales page Second Hand Vintage Omega Speedmaster Moon Watch
