To celebrate its 10-year anniversary, watch magazine HODINKEE has unveiled a limited edition collaborative Omega Speedmaster.
The classic Swiss watch has an important place in HODINKEE's history, with magazine founder Ben Clymer having been given an Omega Speedmaster Mk40 by his grandfather as a teenager. That gesture started a lifelong love of timepieces, culminating in the founding of HODINKEE.
The Omega Speedmaster HODINKEE 10th Anniversary Limited Edition is inscribed with the words "10th ANNIVERSARY" and "HODINKEE” on the reverse and features hand-wound Omega caliber 1861 three-register chronograph movement. Setting the watch apart is its blue/gray dial with pronounced minute scale, luminous hour markers, and red/yellow seconds hand, a feature only seen on a handful of Speedmasters dating back to the ’70s.
Elsewhere, the timepiece has a black aluminum bezel and stainless steel case. The watch comes with two choices of strap, a gray NATO strap and a dark gray calfskin strap with side-stitch.
Just 500 Omega Speedmaster HODINKEE 10th Anniversary Limited Edition pieces have been made (with the number of each edition etched on the back). The timepiece retails for $6,500 and is available through HODINKEE and at Omega boutiques, with deliveries starting from November.
