Speedmaster Anniversary Series Moonwatch (Ref: 310.60.42.50.99.001)
Ok, let’s get a little bit crazy with Omega here and take a peek at one of the recent 50th Anniversary editions – Ref 310.60.42.50.99.001.
How much is it worth – retail? Over $36,000!
So, why is it worth so much? First of all, it is a limited edition. With only 1014 pieces produced.
And the materials are second to none, with the majority of the watch using Omega’s own 18K Moonshine™ gold. It contains additional palladium to fight the tendency of gold to lose its color over time. They have used it in the bracelet, case, and on the stunning dial.
The bezel is not to ignore either with its burgundy ceramic color with a font in Ceragold.
The overall dial and bezel design are very much in line with the original Moonwatch worn on Apollo, but with a few modernizations.
The case back is equally breathtaking with a peek into the inner workings of Omega’s own 3861 movement. It is a certified Master Chronometer movement that has passed the grueling 8 tests required.
Around the edges of the case back you also have some commemorative engravings as well as a small map of the world. And the number of the limited edition you have, out of 1014. However, the showstopper is the view of the movement in all its glory!
