After Robert-Jan posted a picture of his Speedmaster on Facebook using the words ‘Speedy Tuesday’, he decided to use it as a ‘working title’ for a recurring topic on Fratello Watches. On May 29th 2012, the first Speedy Tuesday article was born. Many followed in the years after! In the meanwhile, the #speedytuesday hashtag has been used over 21.000 times on Instagram by Speedmaster enthusiasts all over the world.
We will continue to publish Speedy Tuesday articles every week, on a Tuesday, for Speedmaster fans and those who are researching Speedmaster watches to make that special purchase.
Speedy Tuesday is not sponsored or financed by Omega, unlike some people (and other watch brands like to think). We just love Speedmaster watches and it happens to be a watch with great history and many different models in its (almost) 60 years of existence. Gerard, Balazs, Bert, Michael and Robert-Jan are all avid Speedmaster fans and have been so for a long time. For some of us, it was the first watch or the watch that got us into this exciting world of watches.
Over the last 4 years, we organized several Speedy Tuesday collector dinners, drinks and GTGs. Some times on our own, some times with the help of a retailer or boutique. Make sure to be on our mailing list to know about such events first, so you have a fair chance of being on the list of guests.
If you want to have your Speedmaster featured on Fratello Watches’ Speedy Tuesday, please send us a message using the contact form. We will get back to you asap. It doesn’t need to be a vintage or limited edition Speedmaster, it can be one you just bought new from the Omega boutique, we are just very curious about your story why you bought it and how much you love it.
All Speedy Tuesday articles (over 200) can be found here, on our dedicated page.
