Probably the Ultimate Speedy
Under the cover of the codename “ALASKA Project”, OMEGA was working on a secret project to create the perfect space watch and THIS, is one of the only three prototype examples of the "ALASKA Project" watch that even comes with an additional very large, red anodized aluminium case which serves as a protective heat shield. Everything about this prototype is special in its own way, including the matte white dial with black racing hands and “Apollo” style register hands. Below is a picture of it when enclosed by the red aluminium case. Science, people. Science.
A Unique Patek Ref. 565 in Stainless Steel Gifted to a Night Watchman
The original owner of this steel Ref. 565 was a night watchman for Patek Philippe who was gifted the present watch by the firm in recognition of his work and dedication.
