tag heuer watch bands Speedy Tuesday - Houston We've Stood a Problem!Speedy Tuesday is here! We recently received quite a few photos from Balthasar de Pury, watch collector and Speedy fan. At least one is usually a Speedmaster Professional Apollo XIII that was introduced by Omega in 1995, to commemorate the Apollo 13 missions of 1970.Tied to 999 pieces only, this Apollo XIII 25th Anniversary model is just about the popular - otherwise by far the most wanted - mission patch model Speedy on the market. About the 9 o'clock sub dial, the seconds indicator, there is this picture of NASA's Apollo 13 mission patch.Houston We've Stood a Problem!Originally, the 1970 Apollo 13 mission was there to land on the Moon and also to explore the Fra Mauro formation. It's well known what went down though. The mission would have to be aborted because an accident occurred using one of the oxygen tanks and the crew just barely escaped from the fatal accident.And in 1995, Apollo 13 - a movie in line with the book Lost Moon - was released so they cover the entire drama perfectly on screen. The novel Lost Moon was compiled by on the list of Apollo 13 astronauts, Jim Lovell (another astronauts were Jack Swigert and Fred Haise).In the Apollo 13 movie, Tom Hanks (an enthusiastic Speedmaster wearer himself) plays the role of Jim Lovell, Kevin Bacon plays the role of Jack Swigert and Bill Paxton as Fred Haise. Your favorite shows worth watching (again).Although Balthasar - who owns the watch - wears his Apollo 13 Speedy using a velcro strap, the watch was sold using a reference 1479 bracelet (on Speedy bracelets here). This Speedy model is in fact just about the most desirable configurations, in addition to the Apollo XIII patch. rolex watchs Nonetheless gets the tritium dial and hands, the favorite 1479 bracelet as well as the caliber 861 movement (changed to 1861 in 1997, in addition to the tritium to Luminova) watches .Due to Balthasar de Pury for sending us these pictures of his beloved Apollo XIII watch. The watch is just not available for sale, believe us, we tried.If you need to have your Speedy featured here on Speedy Tuesday, send a number of images plus a description with the watch (or perhaps a special story you wish to share) to speedmaster@www.fratelloreplica watches.com replica breitling quartz watch
