Speedy Tuesday – RIP Eugene Cernan – We look back at ‘his’ Apollo 17 watch from 2012

It is Speedy Tuesday! Today we feature the OMEGA Speedmaster Pro Apollo XVII 40th Anniversary. A Speedmaster that has been linked to the last man on the Moon mission. Our regular Speedy Tuesday contributor Darren Townend submitted one of his Speedmasters for today's topic. A wonderful silver dialed Speedmaster Professional with a special engraved caseback.

Speedy Tuesday – Speedmaster Reduced versus Speedmaster Professional ‘Moonwatch’

It's Speedy Tuesday! Just recently, we were able to lay our hands on an OMEGA Speedmaster Reduced reference 3510.50 timepiece. This discontinued model Speedmaster is often mistaken for the popular Speedmaster Professional 'Moonwatch'. If you are not that deeply into Speedmasters and just like the look of the black face tri-compax lay-out Speedmaster, it is easily to fall into the trap that a lot of sellers of these watches (f.i. on eBay) will try to use on you. They will advertise with these watches as 'Moonwatch' as well. Although the OMEGA Speedmaster Reduced is a very nice watch, it is not a Moonwatch. Keep on reading if you want to learn about the differences.
