    Omega 3590 B1 4XX: THE Space Watch?

    Hi, my father pulled this watch out of his collection from a purchase the year I was born. I was wondering if this was THE moon watch that has the highest value. I myself don't know much about watches and values change so drastically that my father wasn't able to answer.

    Thanks, and I hope this doesn't go against forum rules.

    Omega 3590 B1 4XX: THE Space Watch?

    How about let's warm up this thread with some pics? I find it cold with all the blocks of black and white. The 3590.50 was the most likely the watch that went to the moon but not first in line of speedmaster pros produced. Before that was the pre-professional pre-moon speedmaster that had a cal. 321 movement that in fact was partnofnthe Gemini program. 1968 was when they switched to the cal. 861 movement and took part in the apollo program and in the 90's made added a jewel to make 18, rhodium plated, and a delrin brake to become the current ref 3570.50 with cal 1861 movement.

    I'm quite new to the speedy pro too so I found all this stuff out from reading previous threads and Wikipedia.

    Best of luck!

    Oh and here's my 3570.50 that I love very much!

    Hi Eduardo,
    Just to correct you for accuracy - sadly our Chuck Maddox is no longer with us, but certainly here in spirit

    He was the connoisseur on vintage chronographs, among these are the Speedmasters.
    Alas, Chuck Maddox died several years ago and is still missed.

    Further, there also have been 105.003's ("Ed White") models worn on the moon, by Eugene Cernan for instance.

    Wow, I stumbled upon my own post nearly 8 years later. I apologise to everyone who replied, but I have become a proud owner of other Omegas including a 145.022 "220 Bezel" since. I am still on the hunt for the watch I posted about (#402) and still have all the accompanying accessories. I believe it's a SMP Apollo XI 20th Anniversary watch based on the reference. Attached are pictures that I so failed to post. Thanks again to everyone.
