Speedy Tuesday – Omega Speedmaster Professional Apollo XI 35th Anniversary

It is Speedy Tuesday! This week we have quite possibly the most sought-after Apollo XI restricted version models to show you, the Speedmaster Professional Apollo XI 35th Anniversary Replica Watch Company Reviews Company Reviews otherwise called ‘Speedmaster Panda’. This 2004 Speedmaster Professional commemorates the Moon arrival of 1969, with a restricted creation of 3500 pieces in particular.

Omega Speedmaster ‘Panda’ 3569.31

This Speedmaster Professional Apollo XI version was the main commemorative model for the Moon arrival that looked somewhat not quite the same as the standard Speedmaster Professional 3570.50 . The silver white dial with applied Omega logo and markers and silver hued hands make give it an entirely unexpected appearance than its ‘standard’ brother.

As you can see on the photographs, the date of the Moon arrival is imprinted on the dial in red, just beneath ‘Professional’. Albeit silver hands on a brilliant white dial probably won’t give the best differentiation, it doesn’t trouble (me) by the same token. The hands are lumed and are exceptionally cleaned which gives sufficient differentiation to the foundation. The precious stone is obviously Hesalite (plexi) and the gem on the back is made of sapphire, more about that one below.

The dark sub dials on the silver white dial give an awesome difference and are the motivation behind why this Speedmaster is being alluded to as the Omega Speedmaster Panda. The dial additionally helps me a piece to remember the Paul Newman dials on the Rolex Daytona however it would be senseless calling this a Paul Newman, of course.

There is likewise another Replica Watch Company Reviews Company Reviews that is being alluded to as ‘Panda’, which is the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore Chronograph (reference 26170ST.OO.D101CR.02). In spite of the fact that it has a 12, 9, 6 spread out rather than the tri-compax spread out that the Speedmaster Professional has, the sub dials are dark and the dial is silver white too. They ought to have considered it the ‘sleeping panda’ maybe because of the spread out of the sub dials.

Omega Speedmaster Panda Case Back

One of the cool highlights of this Omega Speedmaster Pro ref. 3569.31 is its case back. As we’ve seen it on the Speedmaster Pro ‘Snoopy Award’ , it has a sapphire gem with an insignia (sticker?) within. The case back – see underneath – shows the Eagle on the outside of the Moon with the Earth in the far distance. This Apollo 11 mission fix is something we’ve seen on the S peedmaster Professional Missions model just as on the later 40th commemoration version where it was applied in silver.

Just like some other Omega Speedmaster Professional from 2004, this ‘Panda’ has the hand-wound type 1861 development inside. Initially it went ahead the 1998/849 wristband yet the proprietor of this specific Replica Watch Company Reviews Company Reviews chose to put it on a croc strap.

Both the dial and the case back make this Omega Speedmaster Panda an exceptionally sought-after Apollo 11 model. The least expensive model we’ve found on is 4400 Euro/5600 USD from an Italian dealer. It may even be the most sought-after Apollo 11 model at this very moment, albeit the most recent 45th Anniversary model is likely a decent sprinter up.

This Omega Speedmaster Panda 35th Anniversary model was really founded on a Speedmaster Professional that was presented in the year prior to (2003). This Speedmaster Pro is otherwise called the Speedmaster Mitsukoshi and had a comparable ‘panda’ dial. Notwithstanding, without the red printing obviously. Just 300 of these were made for the Japanese market, where Mitsukoshi is a chain of retail chains selling Omega watches.

Just like numerous other restricted or exceptional release Omegas, the Omega Speedmaster Panda accompanied a dark calfskin box. This case has red imprinting on the front and an Apollo 11 mission fix within. There additionally was a Certificate of Authenticity portraying the space program (with center around the Apollo 11 mission), the quantity of the Replica Watch Company Reviews Company Reviews and a mark of Omega CEO Stephen Urquhart.
