About the Watch
On 16 October 1968, Tommie Smith and John Carlos stood on the podium at the Olympic Games in Mexico with their heads down. The two US students had just won gold and bronze in the 200-metre final. Then perhaps the most famous photo in sports history was taken: As the American anthem plays, Olympic champion Smith and third-placed Carlos raise their fists to the sky. They are wearing black gloves. In doing so, they declared their support for the "Black Power" movement. A scandal at the time, today one of the most important moments in sporting history witnessed by this watch.
About the Brand
Omega has constantly been defined by its pioneering spirit, demonstrated by its conquests of the oceans as well as space. Since 1965, the Omega Speedmaster has been worn on each of NASA's piloted missions including all six moon landings and many of history’s greatest explorations beyond Earth. Omega also has served as the Official Timekeeper of the Olympic Games since 1932. In watchmaking, Omega’s history has been dedicated to a quest for perfection. This legacy continued in 1999 with the launch of the revolutionary Co-Axial escapement and, in 2015, with the world’s first Master Chronometer. Due to being approved by the Swiss Federal Institute of Metrology (METAS), watches with the designation Master Chronometer can withstand a pressure of up to 15'000 Gauss.

5 Reasons for Vintage
Watches that only a few wearReason Nr. 1
Nowadays, many high-quality watches are mass-produced. Vintage watches were often made in very small series with skilled craftsmanship instead of robots.
Quality that endures generationsReason Nr. 2
In earlier eras, watches were designed to last forever, including the components. There is no such thing as obsolescence. That is what we consider quality at Zurichberg.
Polarizing and characteristic designsReason Nr. 3
Today, only a few watch manufacturers can afford to launch polarising products and therefore produce watches that are aesthetically pleasing to all.
Value for MoneyReason Nr. 4
Vintage watches are overall cheaper than new watches. This is because new watches fulfill the essential financial objectives for the manufacturers, whereas vintage watches are financially "depreciated", so to speak.
Longevity that feels greatReason Nr. 5
We believe that in order to move towards a more sustainable future, it is absolutely necessary and logical to develop a sense for the quality of the past and to reuse products instead of producing new ones.
