This year marks the 5th anniversary of Speedy Tuesday. Not only here on Fratello, but we are happy that Speedy Tuesday has become a community on its own, where people share their love for the Moonwatch and other Speedmaster watches.

Speedy Tuesday Magazine

Earlier this year, it was already celebrated with the introduction of the Speedmaster Speedy Tuesday Limited Edition watch (which is currently being delivered to those who ordered). However, we now also are happy to announce the Speedy Tuesday Magazine. That’s right, a paper magazine. Although we are very much on-line, there is something about a paper magazine or book that can’t be transmitted to an on-line medium. Some times you just need to hold something to read in your hands, flick through pages and be at ease while not having to look into this bright and light emitting device.

Speedy Tuesday Magazine

Together with Omega, we decided it was time for a Speedy Tuesday Magazine. About 100 pages on your favorite chronograph, the Speedmaster. We took a selection of articles from the past 5 years and updated them (both in text and images) and wrote a couple of new articles especially for this magazine. With the help of Omega and their vintage experts, we made sure that everything was made up to date and correct.

It was quite a project, as we were hardly familiar with ‘hard’ deadlines for print, doing magazine lay-out and keep track of pages, page numbers and so on. We worked hard on this Speedy Tuesday Magazine, but with a bit of help of magazine veteran Rüdiger Bucher and Alexander Krupp (of Chronos/WatchTime), we made it happen.

The Speedy Tuesday Magazine is all about the Speedmaster, so not only about Speedy Tuesday, the limited edition or novelties. We found a good mix between new Speedmaster models and vintage references, and to keep it interesting for both newbies to the subject as well as Speedmaster experts.

Speedy Tuesday Magazine

The magazine will be distributed in the US together with WatchTime magazine and a large part will appear directly in Omega boutiques (worldwide). Depending on the logistics, this will probably be end of July or early August. For the Speedy Tuesday Magazine we would like to thank the team at Omega that helped making this possible, contributor Paul Dezentjé, Roy and Sacha Davidoff for providing watches for photography. This special issue was produced with the support of Omega.

We know you will enjoy this Speedy Tuesday Magazine! Make sure to ask your Omega Boutique for one as soon as it arrives.

It is now also available as a free download.

    Congratulations to the team at Fratello Watches, a great achievement and milestone in an already fantastic year. The Speedy Tuesday GTG at Omega, your own Speedmaster Edition and now THE magazine. You deserve it, you worked and work hard to get to here. Thanks for all the information you share with us the watch addicts.

  • Dear Robert-Jan: I too would appreciate news of how a copy could be obtained here in the UK. With the number of Speedy Tuesday LEs destined for the UK, as apparent from posts on the Omega Forum, there would be no shortage of takers here for the Magazine. And don’t forget that we need things to keep our minds off the watch itself while we wait to hear when ours will be delivered! Hope to hear positively on this. Regards. David.

    • You should be able to pick one up at one of the Omega Boutiques in the UK (it has not been delivered yet afaik). We will also put some in our webshop soon.

    Non US subscribers of WatchTime get it?

    • According to my info, all WatchTime Magazine subscribers get it.

  • G Pate

    I wonder when we’ll get it since it wasn’t included in the delivery packet of the most recent issue. RJ did WatchTime mention a time frame for delivery to subscribers?
    By the way, I really enjoy Fratello Watches and look forward to reading Speed Tuesday and #TBT especially.

    • Hi,

      Not that I know of. If you received a WatchTime magazine after July 11th, you should have gotten one. If not, contact WatchTime.
