Omega Speedmaster Rhodium Dial 3590.50
Over the years, Omega has released several commemorative and special edition Speedmasters to celebrate anniversaries of important missions. Understandably, none has been more celebrated than Apollo XI, spawning many limited edition watches beginning in 1969 with a run of 18K yellow gold Speedmasters commemorating NASAs successful landing that year.
In 1980, and again in 1994, Omega produced the classic twisted-lug case white gold with a matching white gold dial. These gorgeous limited editions were gorgeously executed, and gave birth to a sub-set of crazy-eyed collectors searching for them.
With only 20 or so examples produced in 1980 and 500 made in 1994, there aren't that many out there.
So what do you do if you love the look of a special edition but can't find it? Well, in this case, the answer is that you build it.
To execute the vision, the previous custodian of this watch took his 3590, fitting it with a rhodium dial and dark grey Superluminova handset.
