Speedy Tuesday - Omega Speedmaster Apollo-SoyuzIt was in 1975 in the event the two super powers forgot concerning the Cold War for a minute by docking the Apollo and Soyuz spacecrafts with an altitude of 138 miles. Launched with the 15th of July in 1975, the docking was held for the 17th of July and lasted for 44 hours. Once the docking, the American crew transferred from your Apollo for the Soyuz spacecraft.Recording I've met with the commander Apollo CSM-111 spacecraft, Thomas P. Stafford. In addition to astronauts Vance D. Brand name and Donald K. Slayton (among the original 7 astronauts NASA selected for their space program) he flew with the 15th of July up until 24th of July 1975. As well in 2010, I met with Alexey Leonov, command in the Soyuz 7K-TM spacecraft. In addition to cosmonaut Valeri Kubasov he flew in the 15th of July up until the 21st of July.Both gents are actually long time friends. Although Thomas P. Stafford and Alexey Leonov were wearing gold Omega replica watches back then I met them, Stafford laughed and said he was proud your can purchase a Omega Speedmaster Apollo-Soyuz watch . He was referring to the model with the meteorite dial, that we've featured here before ( Omega Speedmaster Apollo-Soyoz meteorite dial article).What didn't become clear, is he or Leonov even offers the 1975 special Omega Speedmaster Apollo-Soyuz while using mission patch at 12 o'clock along with the Saturn 1B rocket against a guide in bas-relief involved back. It would be great to own that information just for this week's article, which is regarding the Omega Speedmaster Apollo-Soyuz from 1975.Omega Speedmaster Apollo-SoyuzThis Omega Speedmaster Apollo-Soyuz watch was the primary watch to commemorate the 1975 Apollo-Soyuz mission. As you can see for the photo's above, the dial gets the mission patch printed at 12 o'clock. The watch also came with a slightly different bracelet than were familiar with, the reference 1168 with 633 end-pieces (same end-pieces as being the famous and well-known 1171).The long hour markers (going to the exterior on the dial, over the minute markers) is just like the methods on dials utilized to up 1969 using the applied Omega logo. Due to Apollo-Soyuz mission patch, there isn't a Speedmaster Professional written about the dial.As you have seen, hands around the Omega Speedmaster Apollo-Soyuz we photographed really are a bit dissimilar to the standard Speedmaster Professional hands. Although the watch we demonstrate this is property in the Omega Museum in Bienne, we're also unsure whether this type of hands were originally utilized for this model. Most Omega Speedmaster Apollo-Soyuz models we've run into have the traditional pair of white baton hands.Inside this watch is the famous Lemania based caliber 861 with copper finish. breitling crosswind It is hard to convey if the replica watches the astronauts and cosmonauts actually used during the mission contains the same movement. Ever since the Speedmaster Professional 105.012 and 145 watches .012 (with caliber 321) were those commissioned along with the caliber 861 Speedmaster Professional 145.022 wasn't certified until 1978 (with the shuttle program) my best guess the a minimum of the astronauts had the caliber 321 models on his or her wrists. Although Alexey Leonov is photographed with the Omega Flightmaster on his wrist in an earlier mission, he and Valeri Kubasov were also wearing Speedy Pros.The caseback from the Omega Speedmaster Apollo-Soyuz provides the Saturn 1B rocket in bas-relief and also the words Gemini - Apollo and ???? (Soyuz). Our favourite book about them, Moonwatch Only (read our Moonwatch Only review here), says which the case backs were built with a very light engraving (Italian) as well as the quantity of the watch. However, the publication also describes that it was done so finely which it would certainly disappear after years or wearing.According to our knowledge, only 500 pieces were ever produced of this Omega Speedmaster Apollo-Soyuz (ST145.0022) model. The authors of Moonwatch Only were able to find delivery invoices of only 400 pieces to the Italian distributor De Marchi in those days (1976). There isn't any info on the remainder of the 100 pieces. Another interesting remark they made would be that the case of this watch is slightly distinctive from the normal "Moonwatch" Speedmaster Pro 145.022 models. The pushers are 5.5mm in diameter as opposed to regular 5mm. On images of this watch in Moonwatch Only you will see that the truth band of the Omega Speedmaster Apollo-Soyuz is slightly modified and have fit. Also, the polished section of the crown guards are most often bigger on the regular reference 145.022 models. All just slight differences which enables this Omega Speedmaster Apollo-Soyuz an extremely interesting watch.It is very difficult to value this Omega Speedmaster Apollo-Soyuz. In 2007 rolex watch replicas , the famous Antiquorum OmegaMania auction had this Apollo-Soyuz that has been hammered for CHF26K Swiss Francs. I've personally seen one accessible in earlier 2000s for around 10.000 Dutch Guilders at that time. An ultra rare watch that collectors are likely keeping through to for future years.Were you aware that Omega - besides this Speedmaster Apollo-Soyuz 1975 model plus the 35th Apollo-Soyuz model with meteorite dial - also produced two other Speedmaster Apollo-Soyuz replica watches? The twentieth and 25th anniversary editions with the Apollo-Soyuz mission were introduced in resp. 1995 and 2000. Both replica watches will be in gold this will let you black dial. The 1995 model is bound to 200 piece plus the 2000 model is bound to just 50 pieces.Should you have additional information regarding the Omega Speedmaster Apollo-Soyuz models, please provide us with a shout.
