This Speedmaster is sold out! Everyone has reconfirmed his reservation. If you are curious to see more details of the watch I have first pictures for you… And I will answer the question about the reversed numbers on the subdials …

 

This is what I would call a success story! 2012 absolutely cool Speedmasters reserved in less than four hours. 106 out of 2012 reserving them did not reconfirm their watch in time and so those 106 pieces were still available after 24 hours.

Now, yesterday evening all remaining Speedmaster Speedy Tuesday chronographs were reserved, reconfirmed and sold.

GAME OVER!

In case you bought one and/or you are simply curious, I can show you first live taken pictures today. I was in Biel at the Omega HQ to see Raynald Aeschlimann and Jean-Claude Monachon this Wednesday, during this occasion I took these pictures of the Omega Speedmaster Speedy Tuesday

And this last pictures answers the question why the “20” and the “10” on the subdials are printed reversed.

I don´t know if you noticed it? Look closer…

The “20” on the subdial at “9 o’clock” and the “10” on the sundial at “3 o’clock” are printed reversed. I did not get an answer yet why this was done in 1972, but I got a picture of the original technical drawings for the dial dated with 10. September 1972.

 

The Omega Speedmaster Speedy Tuesday dial was designed in 1972.

  • This watch looks stunning. Was this done maybe they were afraid of forgery? But than again at that time Omega was doing well and was leading in their market. Or was it simply an unique idea from the designers at that time?
