We already blogged about the importance of packaging, when it comes to timepieces. We just got the news from Omega that starting this fall, anyone who purchases a Speedmaster Professional will receive the watch in a special Moonwatch presentation box.

Inside this exclusive packaging, customers will find two straps for their new timepiece – a black polyamide “NATO” strap and a black Velcro strap inspired by the one astronauts wear in space. A tool to change the bracelet and instructions for how to do so are also included along with a metal plate engraved with the Seahorse emblem, a loupe with a tachymetric scale around its edges and a book highlighting the adventures of the Speedmaster.

As a graphic designer, I'm fascinated by the crossroads between technology and aesthetics. Horology is one of these crafts, where art and engineering come together to produce mechanical wonders that grace the eye. WatchPaper was born from the desire to create an online tool where I can share my passion for watches.
