I just received this email:
I take the liberty to ask you an advice on what I should prefer as my next buy : a Gemini 40th anniversary Special edition (my AD received one and reserved it for me) or a standard black Speedy Pro.
The watch I’ll choose will be my only Speedmaster (or so I think today …)
My other watches are : Rolex SS black Daytona, Breitling black Navitimer, Panerai Luminor 104, Omega Seamaster Cosmic 2000 silver, Breitling Superocean blue, etc.
Thanking you in advance,
And my answer was:
Problem with Speedmaster limited editions is, is that they [Omega] bring out limited editions for every astronaut’s fart 🙂 They will probably even bring out a limited edition Speedmaster because of some limited edition. So I would go for a standard Speedy Pro (like I did), or if you really like the limited edition’s looks, go for one, but I would certainly not buy one just because it is limited.
Great collection by the way. ”
You probably all know the classic ‘Moonwatch’, below you’ll see the 40th anniversary edition:
