    Review: The Speedmaster Moonwatch Co-Axial Chronograph Speeds Into My Heart

    In the pantheon of mechanical wristwatches, the Speedmaster holds a high place. Originally built in 1957 as a reaction to the first wrist-worn chronographs coming out of competing houses, the iconic design - white on black with bold, eminently readable chapter rings and pips - the Speedmaster cemented its place in history when Buzz Aldrin wore his on the moon in 1969. Omega has been flogging that relationship ever since, much to the brand's benefit and Speedmaster fans rabidly hunt for new and old models like madmen intent on owning stars.Decades later the Speedmaster has maintained this original styling and functionality and, barring a few odd turns taken in the 1970s and 80s, hasn't strayed far from the white on black design. This new model, the Moonwatch Co-Axial, pays homage first to the watch's importance in the space race and, second, to the contributions of one of the greatest modern watchmakers, George Daniels.
