‘Iconic’ – Monochrome editors share their passion for the Omega Speedmaster Moonwatch.

As watchmaking goes, there are only a select group of watches that fall into the ‘Iconic’ category. The omega Speedmaster is certainly one of them. The Speedmaster’s history goes back to 1957 with the reference CK 2915 (known as the “Broad Arrow”). It was designed by a Swiss gentleman by the name of Claude Baillod. The watch featured the triple-register chronograph layout, the high-contrast index markers, and the domed Plexiglas crystal. It was introduced as a sports and racing chronograph. The Collector Series once again travels to the effortlessly elegant city of Paris. In his first interview, Brice our Associate Editor and I discussed his stunning Breguet. On this occasion I thoroughly enjoyed finding out why is ref. 3870 Omega Speedmaster Moonwatch is so dear to his heart.
