The Omega Speedmaster Professional Apollo-Soyuz 35th Anniversary watch

There where few new additions from Omega that were presented at Baselworld 2010, most notably was another commemorative wristwatch that celebrates the 35th anniversary of the first international space flight in 1976 when two spacecraft built by different nations docked together.

Astronaut Lietenant General Thomas P. Stafford (USA) and cosmonaut Lieutenant General Alexei A. Leonov (USSR) met in the docking hatch that linked their respective spacecraft. They both shook their Omega wearing hands (no joke – Omega has a very hard working marketing department) and 35 years later, it spawned a commemorative edition that includes a dial created from a sign piece cut from the meteorite which entered the Earth’s atmosphere.

Since no two piece of the meteorite dial are alike, each dial remains unique. Conveniently, they had enough meteorite available to make exactly 1,975 pieces.

Let’s play a game

The Nooka Zot

Let’s play a game: One of these watches is a blatant rip off of the other, One of these watches just isn’t original, Can you guess which one is a copy of the other by the time I finish my song?

Answer: It’s the L.E.D L69-85OE-GSL that looks uncomfortably close to the Nooka Zot. I spotted this at Basel 2010.

L.E.D is designed by a automobile designer named Mr. Adolf Indermaur.
