2019 is a special year for quite a few brands, as it marks for them important events in their history. For some, it was the launch of an iconic model or important movement, while for others it was an event at which one of their copy watches became legendary. That makes it that these brands have something to celebrate:
Omega Speedmaster Professional
This year it is also fifty years ago since humankind set foot on the moon. An important event in general, yet especially for Omega, who provided NASA with Speedmasters for all their manned space missions.Omega has highlighted its legacy in space exploration over the years by releasing various limited editions, and this time they do that with the Speedmaster Apollo 11 Moonshine™ Gold 50th Anniversary Edition. It takes after the gold Top Replica Speedmaster that the brand launched in 1969 to celebrate the success of the mission, yet in an updated form.
TAG Heuer Monaco
In 1969 did Jack Heuer introduce the Monaco Replica Watches with its distinct square case. It was a very important watch for the brand, as it was fitted with an automatic chronograph movement. This was the very first of its kind, and therefore a direct competitor of the Zenith El Primero.Quite extraordinary was that Heuer has been able to make it water-resistant, which is not the easiest thing to do with this shape.
