This rare Omega Speedmaster surrounded by mystery was produced for a very short period, released at Basel in 2013 it with an unknown number supplied with estimates from 1,000 – 2,000 world wide and probably for only 1 or 2 years. The story being that it was destined to be a tribute to Belgian artist Herge’s Tintin ‘Destination Moon’ the watch dial was to have Tintin’s red rocket with white chequers at eleven o’clock but the plan was scrapped after the Herge’s family threatened court action. Omega promptly withdrew the watch and later released it without the rocket. The red and white racing dial was not popular at the time with Omega Moonwatch enthusiasts as with other poorly received pieces ( e.g. Rolex Daytona) this watch has now become a true collectors’ item.  Revolution are asking will this watch be the new Paul Newman Daytona as it is instantly recognisable on the wrist because of its red and white hatching, its also the only Omega moon watch to have the NASA dedication on the back in red writing.   We have the original Omega box outer box and official warranty cards. Presented in superb almost new condition with its original stainless steel bracelet. Watch is supplied with our one year warranty.
