1969, the year man landed on the moon and he was wearing none other than the Omega Speedmaster Professional! However the history of the Speedmaster goes back to 1957 and it wasn't until 1962 that it came to the attention of NASA. If you haven't already, I would highly recommend Googling "Omega Speedmaster History" and just delve into the wide array of information out there, it really will make you appreciate this watch so much more and appreciate the fact it is still "Affordable" to get a small taste of that history!
This watch comes paired on a high quality Leather strap and an aftermarket exhibition case back, but don't panic! Both the original case back and original bracelet are provided in the box for you to switch back to if you wish.
Points of Mention
This watch is sold as a complete set and comes with it's full box and paperwork. This is the classic Speedmaster Professional with a hesitate crystal, it comes with it's original case back and currently on it is an exhibition aftermarket option. The watch also comes with it's original bracelet, currently it is paired on a finely made Colareb leather strap. The watch is sold in used condition, however it is in very good overall condition. The watch is fully working and runs well.
Does it get anymore classic and perfect than a Speedmaster Professional? I think not! Whilst the aftermarket exhibition case back will not be for everyone, the original is in the box to swap back to if desired. Overall this watch in general offers a lot of "Bang for the Buck" and is desired by most collectors. I wouldn't hang about with this one!
