All three sets are absolutely brand new in the box, never tried on or worn, they have all the original sticky plastics on and have only been removed from the packaging to try on.
This is what is called a Queen Vault full set, it has the original dealer plastic case and the lanyard, as mentioned I doubt you will ever see the lanyard again, people sell Rolex ones for crazy money and they come up for sale all the time, this one I have never seen and never seen one for sale listed on its own, it must be worth £400-£500, similarly with the dealer plastic box, it’s worth £300.
Here is what Omega has to say.
THE SPEEDMASTER “SPEEDY TUESDAY” LIMITED EDITION
For half a decade, an online community of #SpeedyTuesday fans have been steadily growing around the world. In tribute to these chronograph devotees, OMEGA is proud to introduce a new Limited-Edition model that blends some of the Speedmaster’s most popular design features.
The “Speedy Tuesday” takes its first design influence from the original 1978 “Speedmaster Alaska III” model. This watch was produced for NASA, who insisted on a watch that was anti-reflective and easy-to-read in space. For that reason, the “Speedy Tuesday” has stayed true to these qualities with a brushed matt-finish stainless steel case and radial subdials with enlarged numerals.
“The return of OMEGA’s radial subdials is just one of the vintage touches in the watch.”
THE “REVERSE PANDA” DIAL
In creating the dial, OMEGA has again taken inspiration from the past. This time, it’s the return of the “Reverse Panda” first seen in 1966. White opaline-silvery subdials are set against a black dial, encircled with a bezel ring and tachymeter scale in matt-black aluminium. There is a rare appearance of the vintage OMEGA logo and all markings and radial subdials have been coated with bright luminescent ink.
“The 42 mm case embraces the anti-reflective qualities of the Speedmasters worn in space.”
A CLASSIC MOVEMENT
The Speedmaster “Speedy Tuesday” is driven by the hand-wound calibre 1861, virtually the same movement that powered the timepieces NASA’s astronauts wore on the moon. Built with a high-grade rhodium-plated finish, it represents an important step in the Speedmaster evolution.
Protecting the dial is a domed hesalite crystal with a central OMEGA logo. The caseback is stamped with the iconic seahorse medallion and encircled by the words SPEEDY TUESDAY ANNIVERSARY – A TRIBUTE TO ALASKA PROJECT III as well as the Limited-Edition number. The word RADIAL circles the outer edge. Finally, the watch is presented on a brown leather strap with a vintage cut and stitching.
“A polished vintage OMEGA logo also appears on the matt crown.”
SPECIAL PRESENTATION ROLL
Each timepiece is presented in a special leather watch roll containing a black and white NATO strap with #SpeedyTuesday engraved on the strap’s loop. The roll also contains a strap changing tool.
STYLISH AND STRICTLY LIMITED
The “Speedy Tuesday” is limited to just 2,012 pieces, marking the year that the online trend began. The 42 mm collectable includes a domed hesalite crystal with a central OMEGA logo and is held to the wrist by a vintage-cut brown leather strap with vintage buckle and stitching.

Please view the very detailed pictures as they form part of the description pertaining to the condition. Please also ask any questions before you bid and not after, all of our items are sold as seen and as listed
Royal House Antiques cannot be held liable for any independent assumptions made regarding the items we sell, if you are unsure on any point, please feel free to ask for clarity
Please note vintage period and original items such as leather seating will always have natural patina in the form of creasing and wear, we recommend annual waxing to ensure no moisture is lost, also hand dyed leather is not recommended to sit in direct sunlight for prolonged periods of time as it will dry out and fade
Most countries charge some kind of import duty however almost all of our items won’t incur any charges as the items are exempt from tax due to the age and materials used
For European deliveries the price you will be quoted will include all clearance documentation and any customs charges so there won’t be any additional fees
For international deliveries such as the United States there can be some import duty to pay and or a clearance fee, I would estimate that 99% of all deliveries clear customs without being stopped for either
All duties are the responsibility of the purchaser who is the importer, they can’t be covered by the seller or shipping agent or factored in with additional retrospective discounts
Royal House Antiques offers a no quibble return policy if the item is not as described, if there are any issues with the piece you will be refunded in full once the item has been returned and inspected within 14 days, alternatively if there is a small issue, we can discuss finding a mutual resolution that makes all parties happy
We don’t offer a sale on approval service which means you can purchase the item, have it delivered and if you simply don’t like it, return it, this comes under change of mind or doesn’t fit. There is a lot of time, money and work involved in transporting goods around the world, the costs incurred can be vast so my advice would be if you are unsure on a piece please ask as many questions as you like to make sure you understand everything before you buy, if you are still unsure then please either arrange a viewing in person or if that’s not possible then don’t buy from an online retailer, perhaps look for a local gallery instead
