Interesting deal for Omega Speedmaster collectors – the Moonfire book

Moonfire isn’t a book about watches. Anyway since it’s about the memorable Apollo 11 Moon landing, I think most Omega Speedmaster gatherers will think that its a fascinating book. Particularly now the cost dropped definitely.

To commemorate the 40th commemoration of the memorable Apollo 11 Moon landing, Taschen Publishers and Norman Mailer united to make an interesting accolade for the characterizing logical mission within recent memory. In 1969 Norman Mailer expounded on the Apollo mission for Life magazine. Moonfire is stacked with wonderful photographs from the chronicles of NASA, Life magazine and numerous other resources.

So for what reason am I expounding on this book? I think it’s an intriguing book for enthusiasts of the Omega Speedmaster. Anyway when the book was distributed, a year ago, it was restricted to 1969 duplicates and the cost was essentially over the top. The initial 1957 numbered duplicates arrived in a white sap box with a curved plexiglas window accompanied by an outlined photograph that was endorsed by Buzz Aldrin, one of the space explorers of the Apollo 11 mission. The price…. was € 750,- .

Yes that was the cost for the initial 1957 duplicates, yet what might be said about the other 12 excess duplicates? These 12 duplicates where called Lunar Rock Edition. It incorporated a piece of lunar stone (henceforth the name) and a case planned by Marc Newson (who likewise planned the Jaeger LeCoultre Atmos 561 and the whole Ikepod assortment ). The cost of these 12 duplicates shifted, because of the size of the moon rock, from € 60,000 up to € 480,000. Also, before you wonder, this is no typo!

Now the restricted releases have sold out, the book is accessible once more. Lastly at a fair cost! Evidently has something to celebrate, in light of the fact that the 30th commemoration release can be purchased for € 29.99…  yes, under 30 (thirty) euro!

An broad review can be seen at the Taschen site , where the book Moonfire can likewise be ordered.
