It is Speedy Tuesday! Although I’m at the SIHH in Geneva, following presentations and doing pictures for our #instagram channel (follow fratellowatches on instagram), nobody can hold us down!! Today’s Speedmaster topic is the suit case with all the Speedmaster Mission models, a Speedmaster 1957 re-redition and a spare OMEGA caliber 1861 movement.
There are 50 of these cases by OMEGA, introduced in batches of three. The first batch of the Speedmaster Mission collection was 40 suit cases in 1997, and afterwards OMEGA produced / sold another 2 x 5 cases (1 in 1997, 1 in 1998).
Although I am not sure what the list price price was of this case at the time, I’ve found one at WatchFinder.co.uk for approximately $200,000,- USD. It consists of the 22 Speedmaster Mission models and the aforementioned Speedmaster ’57 Re-edition or ‘Replica’, although replica is a bad chosen term.
