Pssst – Want to Buy a Grail Watch, Touch of Modern Sales

A grail watch, the thing that dreams are made of. We all have them, well out of our price range watches to aspire to… one day. Touch of Modern (a private, limited time sale site, free to join) is running couple of sales right now (various brands, Breitling) on several drool worthy watches, with prices reduced (at least for me) from the stratosphere to the mere upper atmosphere. Maybe, just maybe, a 60% or so price drop will entice someone to pull a trigger.

Omega Speedmasters Mark II and Apollo 11, Back to the Future

25 years ago, man first walked on the moon. And an Omega was there. And Omega wants you to know that. That year, they released the Speedmaster Mark II, featuring the same movement that was in the watch worn by the astronauts. And now it is time for an update and reissue. The new Speedmaster Mark II retains the overall look of the original, but also provides nice modern updates.

Historical Horology: Non-mechanical Speedmasters from Omega

When it comes to Omega, many folks instantly think of one model – the Speedmaster. This is a fair leap to make, given how iconic the watch has become. Variations have come and gone, but the one you’re likely picturing in your mind right now is a mechanical chronograph with a black dial. A lot of that is fueled from what we see today, as well as the vintage models that are currently popular. In the 1970’s, however, Omega was by no means immune to the quartz crisis.
