The iconic OMEGA watch you need to know about

I’m back at it this week with my friends at Previously Enjoyed Watches. It’s been fun week wearing an Omega Speedmaster Moonwatch. I have always loved this model but never had the pleasure of wearing one. I can’t wait to show and tell you all about it!!

I always like to share a little bit of history about the brand I have been been wearing; so  here is a little bit more info on Omega. Omega was founded in 1848 in a small Swiss village. There has been many accomplishments over their long history, some include; becoming the first watchmaker to time and entire Olympic games, 1932. Today, they have become the almost exclusive timekeeper for all Olympic games. In 1948, marking their 100 year anniversary, Omega marked the occasion with the introduction of the Seamaster. It was build to withstand any challenge, whether in the sky or in the sea. Now being known for its rugged reliability and suburb water resistant ability, the Seamaster became Omega symbol of prowess. In 1962 Omega was approved my NASA and took its first trip to space. In 1969, Omega was there for the first ever walk on the moon. The Omega Speedmaster was worn by every astronaut, outside their suit with a velcro strap for the next 3 years. In 1995, James Bond character was in need of a stylish new watch and was equipped with a Seamaster. His character has been wearing an Omega watch on every mission since. A company with a huge history and ever evolving timepieces has really earned their place and reputation in the watch world.

Lets first take a look at the watch I have been wearing from Previously Enjoyed Watches. The Omega Speedmaster Moonwatch Chronograph was inspired by the original Omega speedmaster released in 1959. It has a blue ceramic bezel with Luminous tachymeter markings, silver dial with rhodium-plated hands and index markers. Its self-winding with a 48 hour power reserve and is 40mm in size.

First impression when I saw the watch was pure excitement. I absolutely love the contrasting colours from the white to the blue in the face. It just make everything pop in such a cool way. The bezel offers the perfect silhouette and again the colours just work magnificently. When I picked this watch up I was wearing my Rolex Submariner, I couldn’t believe how lightweight the Omega was compared to the Rolex. It was like when you put on the most comfortable lightweight pair of sneakers on your feet, but on your wrist.

Over the past week I could not have fallen more in love with this timepiece… there is just something so timeless about its style. Omega offers such amazing price point for their watches and this piece in specific is no exception. Maybe you are looking for your first watch, or maybe something to add to your collection. Either way, if you haven’t considered an Omega Speedmaster Moonwatch, please take my word for it and check one out. This watch is available here from Previously Enjoyed Watches.
