Speedy Tuesday - The Speedmaster Mark 4.5 Financed From the Spy Who Loved MeNick, Speedmaster enthusiast and avid Speedy Tuesday reader, fell deeply in love with Omega's Speedmaster after he watched the 1969 moon landing like a teenager while finding yourself in France. When he turned 21, he received a '71 Omega Speedmaster Professional 'Moonwatch' being a birthday gift from his dad.Unfortunately, many years later (1974) when Nick worked from the movie industry in england, the watch was stolen on the set of Intimate Reflections. While this movie - as Nick puts is - was an infinitely forgettable film, it did launch his career in the market. Besides his watch, also his brand new Nikon F2 camera was stolen from the set.Nick explains which he needed to take his Speedmaster watch off whilst loading a new roll of film having a Black Bag which had to get light-proof. The Black Bag was an essential item for just a 'Clapper-Loader' (2nd. Camera Assistant) whereby you might transfer a different 400'/1,000roll of Eastmancolor film to and from a video camera magazine ( i.e. Panavision or Arriflex camera). The exposed film being delivered to the laboratories for processing into 'the rushes/dailies'. The Black Bag was useful for location work, when usage of a studio darkroom was impossible. Although the hand-access sleeves on the black bag were very restrictive and as the film was highly sensitive to light, that it was important to remove your watch (especially if it emitted a robust 'lume' from your dial). That day Nick was without time to squeeze watch back on when he were forced to race time for the set to re-load the digital camera. It turned out only unattended for seconds-but that's precisely what it takes!Although his first Moonwatch has become probably of someone that doesn't know he's wearing a stolen watch, Nick keeps hope that this thief tosses and turns with guilt simply because it was very valuable to him. He doesn't not have the serial variety of the watch, otherwise we can easily do a 'call' among our readers to locate it.Nick was mortified since the Moonwatch he coming from his father wasn't insured. Immediately, he couldn't manage to buy a different one.In 1976, as he worked tirelessly on the James Bond film 'The Spy Who Loved Me' things changed though. It gave him the funds - even though it had been a lot of cash for just a watch - to acquire another Speedmaster. In 1977 watches , he came upon this Omega dealer in Tottenham, North London, while he suddenly noticed this beautiful Omega Speedmaster Mark 4.5 (with caliber 1045 movement) using of the question. He was interested in the Speedmaster Mark 4.5 ref. 176.0012 after he convinced his new bride he really required to buy this watch, it was his.This Omega Speedmaster Mark 4.5 watch was treasured by Nick from the time that then when the chronograph function started to play up last December, he decided the watch deserved a costly spa swiss hublot replica watches . The watch may be completely overhauled and looks like it was simply bought on that day in 1977 again.Eventually, Nick also bought an Omega Speedmaster Professional 'Moonwatch' that came near to the original one he got from his dad. He loves both replica watches but decided to place the Speedmaster Mark 4.5 up for sale on eBay (click here for the lot), including all original boxes and paperwork. Although I've attemptedto persuade him never to flip it, the watch go when it hits the correct quantity of capital. To be a Speedmaster nut, he desires to own the Ultimate goal Speedmaster (such as this one) with similar Lemania 5100 based movement because the Omega Speedmaster Mark 4.5 but the standard 'Moonwatch' design.Once we did a write-up within the Omega Speedmaster Mark 4.5 on several occasions (find one for example) I cannot begin technical details of the watch.
