Omega Speedmaster Professional Chronograph "Hesalite Sandwich" Ref. 3572.50 with Box and Papers
The Speedmaster Professional is arguably the most important watch ever made for its association with NASA and the space program since the 1960s. It also helps that the watch has an extremely legible tri-compax dial, clean crisp design with twisted lugs and mixed case finishing, and an extremely durable hand wound movement. Omega decided to show off that movement with the 3572.50 "hesalite sandwich" model, which retains the hesalite crystal the Moonwatch is so well known for on the front, while adding a sapphire display back for the rhodium plated movement ticking away inside. It's all the history and pedigree with a little flair.
