It is believed that only 1000 units of this beautiful Omega 1510 Constellation MegaQuartz 2.4Mhz in whole, whereas it is believed that as few as 100 of those 1000 where this beautiful Aventurine dial variant which has the most beautiful sparkle I have ever seen! Each watch with this dial was done by hand by applying a thin layer of Aventurine crystal dust onto a thin baseplate of metal and fibreglass. Due to this process it is very common, if not inevitable now, that the dials may crack. This dial has 2 cracks that are only noticeable in a certain light and are not too extreme at all, it has to be said that those 2 cracks are the only imperfections of this watch! The watch was serviced in October 2017!
This watch comes with everything, it's full box and papers and has been serviced so it is running well! The overall condition of the watch I would say is 10/10 - You wouldn't believe the watch is 37 years old, looks like it has only been worn a handful of times. I would say this is a once in a lifetime watch, I highly doubt we will see many more of these go for sale in the future, but even if they do they will not be of quality like this and a complete set! So do not hesitate on a watch like this and give me a call!
I have handled and Sold a few Glycine and this has my favourite dial yet! Love the white/eggshell colour contrasting against the black of the hands and indices! Even the date being blacked out is a really cool touch. Now sure it is a big watch but it's comfortable on the wrist, some watches of these dimensions just feel terrible on the wrist, I can safely say this isn't one of those!
A fully Carbon Case is not something you see often in watch making, especially at this price point! The weight is so satisfying once on the wrist. When researching this watch I found a description written by WatchBase.com
"For years Giuliano Mazzuoli dreamt of creating a watch with an innovative design, different than any other watch available on the market. The inspiration for his watch came one day when he looked at a pressure gauge. It was in this object that he found his Manometro (it means “pressure gauge” in Italian) watch. Ten years later the watch is just as relevant as when it was first introduced capturing a timeless presence on the watchmaking scene. The popularity and fame of his iconic watch continues to grow among an audience that has an eye for design, and an appreciation for style."
I am excited to bring this incredible Omega Speedmaster #SpeedyTuesday to sale! It comes as a full set with everything it would have when sold initially, in very good condition. It is also a very early 14*/2012! It ticks a lot of boxes for the Speedmaster fan out there, it certainly ticks a lot of boxes for me. This watch is special for a lot of reasons beyond how incredible it looks!
It was released by Omega in partnership with Fratello watches to celebrate the 5th year anniversary of their #SpeedyTuesday which they introduced in 2012, hence being limited to 2012 pieces. The dial is inspired by the Alaska Project III moon watch which only 56 were made, but this is the first reverse Panda Omega have done in Speedmaster Professional. It is also the first watch Omega sold entirely online! That's a lot of firsts...
Points of Mention
This watch is sold with everything it would have been sold new with, even the plastic watch shipment case. The watch is worn but in good condition, hairline scratches to be expected on acrylic crystal. Still under manufacture warranty too, plus it is an early 14*/2012 limited edition piece!
The SpeedyTuesday is not only a super cool watch but one that means a lot to me! You will see on my home page a picture of this watch under the "Sold" picture, that is because I actually sold one of these very early on in the KibbleWatches days when this watch was first released! So it holds a special place for me and I am excited to offer another one, take it quick!
Here we have a classic 34mm oyster case Tudor from 1969 with a jet black dial! Beautiful full Tudor rose can be found at 12o'clock with the words "Tudor / Oyster" underneath, Rolex crown and caseback with an engraving that states 1968. We have it paired on a thick suede strap with a Rolex Clasp. When you look at the ever increasing prices of the Rolex counterpart you will see that these are incredible value propositions and I think will continue to rise in price!
ROLF. Never heard or seen a watch named ROLF... But the moment you look at that dial you don't even care anymore, it could say McDonalds and I'd still wear this! (That's true!) The dial has beautiful concentric circles in the centre, applied gold indices and numeral with incredible matching hands! The movement has a lovely brass tone and finished nicely. I'm yet to find any fault with this beauty! If this had Omega on it, it would easily be a £1000 watch in my eyes!
Recently I've been getting a fair few of these unknown and obscure brands, I think they're super awesome and offer a great value proposition! Let's take a look at this "MAVIP"... And yes, I have no clue what the brand is or anything about it lol! That's part of the fun of these ;)
This watch has a lovely case shape which wears so well on the wrist and gives a far larger wrist presence than it's numbers suggest, being quite thin too it's lovely! The dial is a glossy metallic colour that has aged and gone a VERY slight pinkish hue in certain lights, it's super faint but wow! Large and bold indices filled with black contrast nicely against the long hands that are filled with white, all complimented with a sub seconds at 6o'clock! I think if you're a watch guy and want something that stands out and gets questions, then get this!
Whether you are looking for an affordable watch as a Christmas gift or a treat to yourself, Tissot always has something to offer! This Seastar offers an affordable automatic watch, exhibition caseback, water resistance with a helium escape value, great lume, comfortable rubber strap and the list really could go on! Plus... Who doesn't like blue?! Save yourself the headache of getting someone a present they might not like and get them this watch that they'll love!
