Debby11, Discount Swiss OMEGA Speedmaster Mark II Rio 2016 Limited Edition watch Online at

As being a follow-up to yesterday’s Per week For the Wrist article on the Omega Speedmaster Disadvantage with the Moon, we now have a totally different type of story of a Speedy. Hopefully, this one will probably be likely to (almost) space. Dustin Neikirk can be a watch lover who spent my childhood years aspiring for being an astronaut, and even though his dream never quite came true, he or she is now scheming to make up for most lost time by sending an Omega Speedmaster in the stratosphere and filming the complete thing. The mission involves a weather balloon, some cameras, and of course a Speedmaster – and Neikirk is crowdfunding the whole thing.


We had arrived somewhat shocked once we first discovered Neikirk’s project, but it’s exciting take into consideration. A balloon rig fitted with two GoPro cameras will need an Omega Speedmaster nearly around 100,000 feet, sufficient to discover the curvature of the earth. This is about 80% as high as Felix Baumgartner’s near-space jump from a year ago, and will push the Speedmaster to the edge. The thought here is to find out that this watch actually functions of these types of conditions, then one with the cameras will be centered on the dial, using the chronograph running, whole time.


To finance the project, Neikirk has launched a GoFundMe page, which you can find here. Using a goal of $4,500, we hope to find out Neikirk’s Speedmaster within the stratosphere soon. We recommend going for a closer look and then we’ll convey more coverage about this to suit your needs because project develops.
