#SpeedyTuesday visits OMEGA HQ in Switzerland


A full day for Speedmaster fans, organized by Fratello Watches

Speedmaster fans have been treated to a special #SpeedyTuesday event at OMEGA HQ in Biel/Bienne, Switzerland.

The popular hashtag was originally created by Fratello Watches to celebrate the iconic OMEGA chronograph every Tuesday. 

Around 30 Speedmaster fans were greeted in Biel/Bienne by OMEGA President & CEO, Raynald Aeschlimann, as well as the Founder of Fratello Watches, Robert Jan Broer. Guests then enjoyed a Museum and Archives tour, a Speedmaster product presentation and a surprise talk from retired NASA Aerospace Engineer, Jim Ragan -  the man who qualified the OMEGA Speedmaster for all manned space missions.

Jim’s insight captivated the guests and took them right back to the beginning of the Speedmaster’s history in space. The speech capped off a truly memorable day and another special moment for the timeless OMEGA Speedmaster.
