After our Singapore Speedy Tuesday Event, we went to Hong Kong to have the Speedy Tuesday event on Thursday, June 27th.
Similar to the report of the event in Singapore , we share the photos that we took during the Hong Speedy Tuesday Event. In a similar group of stars (no play on words expected) as in Singapore (along with the Head of Brand Heritage Petros Protopapas, previous NASA engineer James H. Ragan), we did introductions and a board conversation in Hong Kong. Obviously, there was likewise the chance to attempt the new Speedmaster Apollo XI watches. These watches are being conveyed to the business sectors as we speak.
I was extremely glad to see so numerous lover Speedmaster fans in Hong Kong, and we additionally (once more) had visitors who voyaged right from Australia and from Malaysia (Kuala Lumpur). In this photograph report, we will again show some wrist candy also. Likewise in Hong Kong we saw numerous Speedy Tuesday Ultraman models, yet in addition a ton of Speedy Tuesday “Tribute to Alaska III” releases. Also, obviously, you as of now may have seen it on our Instagram channel, the Speedy Tuesday fan with the Speedy suspenders.
Hong Kong Speedy Tuesday Event
I am forever discontent when my morning timer goes off before 7 am. I can manage an infrequent 6 am, yet 5 am or much prior essentially executes me. Notwithstanding, the energy to visit Hong Kong and facilitating a Speedy Tuesday event there made me rapidly disregard those numbers. We took an early departure from Singapore to Hong Kong and had a touch of time to glance around, visit the Omega shop and shoot some images.
Being without precedent for Hong Kong, I am upbeat I had a few hours to spend in this amazing city. Gerard, who went along with me during this excursion to Asia a week ago, has been to Hong Kong previously so he was the ideal guide.
The set-up of the Hong Kong Speedy Tuesday event was like the one in Singapore, with the exemption that we had a lower number of visitors (around 40). All the visitors showed up around 2 pm at the ESPACE Hong Kong building, where we facilitated the event on the seventh floor. Completely enhanced with Speedy Tuesday dividers and work areas, everybody was welcomed with a glass of champagne.
In an uncommon corner, vintage Speedmasters (and a portion of the fresher models, including the Apollo 8, ST1 and ST2) were in plain view. It is so unbelievably cool that even the gold Speedmaster Apollo XI that was introduced to Vice-president Spiro Agnew in 1969 was there too, and could be attempted and dealt with up close.
Presentation and Panel Discussion
Omega Hong Kong was available also and the Marketing Director of Hong Kong welcomed the visitors, trailed by a short presentation from Petros Protopapas. I talked about the Speedy Tuesday community and shared a few words on how the Speedy Tuesday “Tribute to Alaska” returned to life in 2017. Next in front of an audience was James H. Ragan, who talked about his time at NASA and about the Moon program and his work as a field engineer at that point. He clarified that in spite of the fact that he was employed to do the watch choice, one of his first positions was to assist NASA with choosing the correct camera hardware. We will before long delivery the video with the discussion from Ragan he did in Hong Kong. A few sections are like what he has told in Singapore, however there are some intriguing different points he contacted in Hong Kong and bad habit versa.
After the board conversation, there was an ideal opportunity to respond to certain inquiries from the visitors. It was certain that there were a great deal of all around educated visitors, posing unmistakable and definite inquiries on the Speedmaster point. I figure we should add some additional opportunity in the approaching events to have the inquiries replied from the audience.
Next up was a little break that permitted us to do some shooting (wrist shots toward the finish of this report) and find a portion of the guests.
After this break, we proceeded with the item introduction just as the touch and feel meetings with the Speedmaster Apollo XI and type 321 development. Lamentably no news yet about the new watch that will have the type 321 or when it will be delivered. Ideally, we will see something in the not so distant future. Both Apollo XI 50th commemoration versions were generally welcomed in Hong Kong (as they were in Singapore), we trust that the individuals who are intrigued will have the chance to acquire one. Supposedly, the gold Apollo XI conveyances began a week ago and this week the main steel adaptations are being conveyed to the boutiques.
The Hong Kong Speedy Tuesday event finished with a magnificent supper at . Our own personal Sky Sit as of now referenced to me that this is one of her number one places in Hong Kong, and it was for sure marvelous. It was really incredible to meet so numerous Speedmaster fans in Hong Kong, and from what I have been told, they additionally delighted in that the Speedmaster was placed at the center of attention in their city.
