The Omega Speedmaster: 4 Alternative Watches That Ended My Obsession

What do James Cameron's Aliens movie, World War II Spitfire aircraft, Italian car designers, and Russian cosmonauts have in common with the Omega "Moon Watch" Speedmaster? Rather a lot, as you’ll find out today! In this video I share 4 watches that ended my long infatuation with owning Speedmasters. What changed? And what stole my heart away? In this video I discuss a historic but mostly forgotten Omega that helped save the world and set the foundations for both the Speedmaster and Seamaster line. I then share a Seiko movie star that has almost quadrupled in value in half the time it took for my Rolex Submariner to do so. I also take a look at the most underrated Swiss watchmaker and their illustrious history of making watches for astronauts. To wrap up the episode I share my thoughts on why the Navitimer is Breitling’s most iconic watch and one of the most important chronographs of all time. Join me for an exciting video created especially for my fellow watch enthusiasts. *** PLEASE NOTE - There is an error in the Speedmaster specs - it is not 33mm x 10mm, but 42mm x 14.3mm, please forgive me for the typo. I was rushing and excited get this video up.
