Speedmaster Professional Apollo-Soyuz 'Meteorite' ReviewOmega Speedmaster Soyuz ApolloJuly will be the month of Omega's Speedmaster replica watches. But not only the Moonlanding are going to be celebrated (for the 21th of July 2:56 GMT), even the last Apollo mission which extends back to July 1975 is widely known. The ASTP (Apollo-Soyuz Test Project) consisted out of several joint scientific experiments, but was - obviously - mainly used to see whether combined (manned) missions between two super powers would be possible later on. Mission ASTP started on the 15th of July and returned within the 24th of July 1975 TAG Heuer .Now, I do believe that my background on blogging and covering the Omega Speedmaster models can be something I can beĀ  somewhat pleased with, but I never spent the time to document the Apollo-Soyuz special editions. If you're searching for any story on the 'actual' moonreplica watches, please always read my article about the Speedies that have been used through the moon landing about the 21st of July 1969 (you could find there articles here and here).Omega has commemorated the Apollo-Soyuz in 1975 which has a Speedmaster Professional ref. 145.0022 limited to several 500 pieces. This model had an inscription (engraving) around the way back in both English and Russian. The dial had the blue and red Apollo - Soyuz logo at 12 o'clock. Once in a while, an existing Apollo-Soyuz Speedmaster Professional appears and can be had for approx. 10.000 Euro. Later on, in 1995 and 2000, Omega created another Speedmaster Professional Apollo-Soyuz special. Beneath the Speedmaster that Omega introduced in 1975, featuring the handwound Lemania based cal.861 movement: watches As you can see, nothing very different from your original Moonwatch, except for the company as well as the case back. The bracelet looks rather like an Oyster bracelet from Rolex, but it is the truth is a classic Omega bracelet through the reference of 1168.In 2010, Omega commemorates the 35 anniversary of the combined space mission by another Speedmaster Professional Apollo Soyuz, ref. 311.30.42.30.99.001. An 'ordinary' stainless-steel Moonwatch, however this time with the incredible looking dial made from meteorite and a very impressive engraving in the event back in the watch. My buddies from Watch-Site (on-line dealer) lend me this excellent Speedmaster Pro Meteorite to experience with and - of course - try taking a little images of it.This Speedmaster Soyuz Apollo watch has full functionalities of the current stainless Moonwatch, together with a sapphire crystal instead of the more 'authentic' Hesalite crystal. Essentially, the dial is done from a dark coloured little bit of meteorite along with the dials have this grey-ish colour. Also crafted from meteorite of course. The dial is merely stunning, unfortunately the blue-ish glare around the picture above is because the anti-reflective coating. Below, you will notice a close-up on the dial from a high-res picture I took:The cool aspect of a meteorite dial is no dial gets the same structure. Naturally, we've seen dials constructed from meteorite before (including the Rolex Daytona essentially you will come to Hodinkee) but this it creates a somewhat more sense. The way it is back of this Speedmaster Professional Apollo Soyuz, keeping the hand wound caliber 1861 risk-free, has become engraved with the two space crafts from the two USA and the Sovjet Union along with the names on the cosmonauts and astronauts involved (Alexey A. Leonov, Valery N. Kubasov, Thomas P. Stafford, Vance D. Brand and Donald K. Slayton).Both the Apollo astronauts as well as the Soyuz cosmonaut for the front row are clearly wearing Omega Speedmaster replica watches around the picture above. A minimum of I could truthfully identify them within the regular size form of this picture, definitely. Below you can see true back bearing the engraving of the space crafts as pictured above being a 'model' in front of the flight crew.Omega really makes this Apolly-Soyuz or 'Speedy Meteorite' stand above the standard models, the box has this meteorite colour and has now a pleasant leather interior. You'll want to push control button prior to box will open, therefore the watch is positioned on a leather pillow within the left plus the Apollo-Soyuz emblem is positioned around the right part of the box.I didnt photograph the white cardboard boxes outer box, while you probably can imagine just what it looks like. The booklet and papers with this watch may be found in the greeting card board box, along with the certificate stating the unique variety of the watch (of any total of 1975 pieces all over the world).The watch wears very comfortable, and that i actually find it more leisurely as opposed to original Moonwatch with Hesalite crystal. I possess a 145.012ST (caliber 321) from 1967 which weighs not nearly as expensive this sapphire crystal model (the bracelet on the modern versions are heavier naturally).For your rest, the watch wears and behaves like several other similar Speedmaster model. The Lemania based movement is hand wound and in accordance with the original 861 caliber (now 1861), which has proven itself through the years of their use (since 1968). The crown winds very easy and softly plus the watch immediately sets out to run. The chronograph uses this shuttle cam system (instead of column wheel construction) and starts, stops and resets by pressing the buttons gently.After studying the watch for a couple of hours, I spotted i actually just like the red printing, plus the applied logo (old style style!). This watch could simply be mine, definitely. And its price? It lists for 6150 Euro in The Netherlands (examine your own local dealer for the price, eventhough it probably isn't going to differ much) i always think is very steep to get a Moonwatch which has a meteorite dial. Does the 3000 Euro extra is justified for just a special dial and engraving, limited to 1975 pieces?If you're an collector of Speedmasters, it probably is. Watch-Site offers this BNIB model for 5250 Euro and that is already turning it into a bit easier to determine. You possibly can say the regular 'Moonwatch' is priced below its real value, that we often under write. The off the shelf ref. 3570.50.00 retails for over 2700 Euro, having a Hesalite crystal that's. The Speedmaster is probably the most (or perhaps is it just the) iconic chronograph replica watches there may be. For me, it is obviously any good more 'clean' and fascinating chronograph as opposed to famous Rolex Daytona. The classic model of the Speedmaster is impeccable and it has proven itself more than Half a century now.As I am offering this, I recognize that i'm seeking enough arguments to justify the approximately 5K for this superb Speedmaster Pro 'Meteorite', rolex datona and you understand what? I haven't got to. rolex fake watch It just rocks.Should you curently have an Omega Speedmaster (pre-Professional) as part of your collection, make sure you wear it another future.
