I moved quickly when Hodinkee and Omega sent me news that a limited edition Speedmaster was going on sale to celebrate the 10th anniversary of Hodinkee’s launch.
Not fast enough. Despite getting the press release 4 minutes before Hodinkee subscribers got news of the watch launch, I failed to click the buy button fast enough.
More precisely, when I first went to Hodinkee there was one piece remaining, but by the time I got to checkout it was gone.
Only 500 of the Speedmaster Hodinkee 10th Anniversary limited edition were made, and the only other place to buy one now that Hodinkee has sold out is in Omega’s USA boutiques.
If you can find one, they are priced at $6500.
Hodinkee founder Ben Clymer helped to design the Speedmaster Day-Date, a watch he chose to work with Omega on as it is a model he once received as a gift from his grandfather and is remembered as the model that ignited his passion for watches.
