4. Omega Seamaster Diver 300m Beijing 2022

5. Omega Speedmaster Professional Moonwatch
You’re probably aware of how the Moonwatch arrived to be the first timepiece on the moon. It was introduced in the late 50s and is still the Omega watch to own; and, like many legendary watches, it has only altered slightly over the years. The simple black dial with thin hour and minute hands and the signature black tachymeter bezel complements a wide range of outfits. The Speedy, on the other hand, isn’t just for show because it’s driven by the Calibre 3861, which is mainly the same as the one that preceded the legendary moon landing. It is ideal for those looking for an epic wristwatch that will outlast trends.
This Speedmaster Professional Moonwatch ref 310.32.42.50.01.001 is exceptionally one of the Speedy you’ll gladly have today. Its stainless steel case paired with a black fabric strap will complement perfectly on your wrist.
If you have more than five watches in your possession, you won’t want to carry them all with you when you travel. As much as you adore your Omega wristwatches, being a bit selective in this scenario is a smart idea. Having a large collection of timepieces will be clunky and burdensome, and you will almost certainly not be able to wear them all.
