The Omega Speedy Tuesday Hashtag #SpeedyTuesday was created by Fratello Watches founder Robert-Jan Broer in 2012, and has since been used by watch enthusiasts to commemorate the myriad editions of its flagship model on the second day of each week.
Omega released the Speedy Tuesday in 2012, To celebrate the Speedmaster Pro. What sets this limited edition apart from the other watches is it’s reverse Panda Dial. As far as I know, if you want a manually wound speedy, with a reverse Panda dial, procuring a Speedy Tuesday is the only way to get one. Which is not a bad proposition because Omega really did it right with this one.
The design of the Speedy Tuesday is inspired by Omega’s Speedmaster "Alaska Project III," a model created for NASA in 1978. The Alaska Project III didn’t have a reverse Panda dial, but it did have special “radial” subdials, which were requested by NASA engineer James Ragan, as he felt a radial layout was more legible.
What You're Getting
Other than those tweaks, you get the same 42mm Professional case, powered by the familiar hand-wound calibre 1861. And then there’s the goodies. Each timepiece will come with a special leather watch roll containing a black and white NATO strap with #SpeedyTuesday stamped on the strap's loop. The leather roll is very supple and soft to the touch. I find myself petting in times of duress.
On The Wrist
Omega offered 2012 of these on it’s website for $6,500 USD, and they all flew off the virtual shelf within the same day. Pre-owned prices are now hovering around double the retail price ($12,000-$13,000). If you’re okay with the legibility, I’d grab one of these and watch the prices continue to rise.
