We proudly announce the upcoming Speedy Tuesday Event on the 29th of October that will be held in the Space Expo, ESA-ESTEC’s visitor centre in Noordwijk, The Netherlands.
The Speedy Tuesday Event will be held on Tuesday the 29th of October, from 16:00 (GMT+1) and onwards. Both new and vintage Speedmasters will be present as well as the Fratello team and OMEGA representatives. Perhaps even more important, there will be a lot of fellow Speedmaster enthusiasts as well. Including a number of people who contributed to Speedy Tuesday on Fratellowatches.
With the help of OMEGA SA and the Space Expo, we have been able to combine all required ingredients for what we think will be a unique experience for Speedmaster fans.
Fratellowatches’ Speedy Tuesday has become a very popular recurring topic in the last year and we thought it was time to organize an event especially for the owners and collectors of Omega Speedmaster watches. What better place to think of than the Space Expo in The Netherlands?
The programme of that day will be as follows:
16:00 – Welcome of the visitors and start of the Speedy Tuesday Event. Also get the opportunity to meet and chat with other Speedmaster enthusiast.
17:00 – 18:00 Opportunity to meet with former NASA engineer James Ragan who was responsible for selecting and testing the Speedmaster in 1964
Till 20:00 – Showcase of new Baselworld 2013 Speedmaster watches, Showcase of OMEGA museum pieces from Bienne, Meet with Omega’s Museum curator and watchmaker
