Your parents probably tried to drill into you just how important punctuality is. Tidbits of counsel like “If you’re not five minutes early, you’re late” might still be ringing in your ears. You might shrug your shoulders and wonder what it matters, but when being on time does matter, having a good watch counts.
The Omega Speedmaster has a long history of keeping time when it matters most. The Speedmaster was worn by astronauts in the first American spacewalk in the Gemini 4 mission, and has the distinction of being the first watch worn by an astronaut walking on the moon during the Apollo 11 mission. It’s original purpose, however, was to help racing car drivers time their laps. The Porsche Club of America Limited Edition OMEGA Speedmaster recalls that history.
The PCA Speedmaster features the classic grey and yellow scheme of high-performance brakes with gray ceramic and yellow calipers. The gray ceramic of the watch is polished and brushed, and has received an exclusive plasma treatment. The Grade 5 titanium dial references the moon where the material is abundant, but also the exhaust of the Porsche 911 Turbo. Both the Porsche and this watch have a powerful engine—the watch’s is the automatic winding OMEGA Co-Axial Calibre 9300.
The PCA OMEGA Speedmaster is extremely limited, with only 99 being made. So if you’re ready for serious punctuality, it time for you to take at closer look.
