What I have gained from your Speedmaster stories up until now, is that there’s regularly more required than simply purchasing a watch. Indeed, there are individuals gathering Speedmasters for no other explanation than affection for this chronograph. In any case, up until this point, the accounts we’ve got are additionally about passionate motivations to purchase a Speedmaster.
This week, we have a story from Rosier about his Speedmaster “From The Moon to Mars” to commemorate his 25th commemoration at work, yet additionally a story from Kirk and why he purchased his Speedmaster. A terrible story, yet Kirk imparted it to us and I am respected to impart it to you as well.

On the one hand, Kirk’s story makes gathering Speedmaster watches look less significant. There are (substantially) more significant things throughout everyday life, obviously. Then again, it shows the more profound enthusiastic worth a watch can have a few times for individuals. I have a couple of watches I wouldn’t need to live without as they help me to remember certain individuals or certain occasions. Some of the time, it additionally makes me terrified of losing such a watch. Recollections are more significant obviously, and those you will have until the end of time. However, a watch that has a (more profound) association, may trigger you reviewing those recollections or think about that specific unique someone.
#Story1: Kirk and Aimee
My stunning spouse Aimee died a little more than three and a half years prior. She had been battling bosom disease for a very long time. After the initial three years of medical procedure, chemo, and radiation treatment we thought she had beaten it. Sometime thereafter a normal X-beam found numerous little injuries in her lungs. This prompted more chemo and radiation. It was currently metastatic and simply an issue of time.
After a pail list outing to Scotland, we found that the tested muscle in her sanity was malignant growth in her hip joint. After a crisis hip substitution, we found that malignant growth had spread to her mind. Gamma Knife and CyberKnife radiosurgery and entire cerebrum radiation turned into our new Hell.
As you can envision, the present circumstance makes a watch assortment an extremely low need. I had a little assortment of reasonable watches from before the illness.
“Get the best watch”
At a point where she was in a wheelchair, we went on an outing to the nearby discount shopping center to shop and talk. One of the shops that we halted at was a Swiss producer of watches and blades. Two or three programmed pilot chronographs got my attention. As we left the shop Aimee said “When this is all over you ought to get yourself the best watch!”
This was not something that I needed to consider. I ought to presumably clarify that this is a lady that demanded that I get a NEW cruiser when my old BMW 900 turned over a fourth of 1,000,000 miles. She understood what I required regardless of whether I didn’t know it.
Later at night, she asked “What do you think you’ll get?”.
“Probably an Omega Moonwatch.”
She caused me to plunk down with her and clarify why and show her photos. I helped her to remember the circumstance in the Apollo 13 mission when they needed to time the rocket consume. Slice to the fall of 2017. My child and I are seeing a sorrow advisor directly across the road from the nearby Omega AD. So often here I had inquired as to whether today was the day. I went for the sapphire precious stone and back model. I needed to see that development! I likewise got a hat!
I couldn’t say whether I would have purchased this fine a watch for myself on the off chance that she hadn’t made me guarantee. So now my wedding band sits in my Speedmaster Professional box and I wear my Speedy each Tuesday and consider her.
#Story2: An Anniversary Watch
From 2010 onwards I have been gathering mechanical watches. I truly cherished those symbol watches. Everything began with the Seamaster Professional 300M Peter Blake. Also, I had a list of things to get. Unquestionably Speedmaster, Navigator, Monaco, Reverso, Submariner, etc.
October 2013, I went to the principal Speedy Tuesday Event, coordinated by Fratello Watches at ESA in Noordwijk, the Netherlands ( photo report here ). One issue: I actually didn’t claim a Speedmaster. So I brought my Seamaster. Surprisingly, I purchased watches meanwhile, even famous watches like the TAG Heuer Monaco, yet never a Speedmaster.
Every time while picking another watch, I thought, “Let’s not accepting the Speedy now.” There are sufficient of them Speedys out there to get one sometime in the future. I actually was persuaded that for a genuine authority a Speedmaster is an unquestionable requirement have.
It took me until 2018 to get my own Speedmaster. I was praising my 25th commemoration at work and concluded that this second must be commemorated with an exceptional watch. In the business I was working, the idiom, “Try the impossible and land on the Moon,” was very popular.
This carried me to picking the From The Moon to Mars Speedmaster. Customary hand-winding and a Hesalite precious stone combined with brilliant sub-registers addressing the Earth, the Moon, and Mars. It associated the past, arriving on the Moon, to the future, space missions to Mars — for a fact to desire. A watch that fits impeccably to the occasion.
So I am pleased to give you my Speedmaster from Moon to Mars – reference 3577.50.00
