"It makes perfect sense to publish a book called Moonwatch Only. The OMEGA Speedmaster Professional - the Moonwatch - has done things that no other timepiece has done and it's been worn in places where only a few human beings have been." Captain Eugene Cernan, the last man on the Moon Initially designed for automobile racing teams and engineers, the Omega Speedmaster embarked on a very different trajectory when NASA chose it to accompany astronauts heading for the moon in 1965. Its involvement in the space adventure has propelled the Moonwatch to the top of the list of celebrated timepieces. After years of research and observation, the authors present a complete panorama of the Moonwatch in a systematic work that is both technical and attractive, making it the essential reference book for this legendary watch. "It is an indescribable reference work and a true must-have for every Speedmaster collector" Forbes "This book sets a new standard. Not only for books on the Omega Speedmaster, but for watch books in general. I've never seen anything like it, and believe me I could fill an impressive sized wall with books on watches. Authors of other books or publishers should take a look at Moonwatch Only as well to see how it should be done." Fratello Watches

- In this work, the authors have applied the rigorous, innovative methodology that contributed to the success of their previous publication, Moonwatch Only, ISBN 9782940506170, and which now represents the signature of the 'ONLY' books The highly evocative Flightmaster name was first mentioned by OMEGA in 1956-57, but it was not until the late 1960s that it was used to designate an incomparable watch, initially intended for aircraft pilots. At the time, it was regarded as the watch industry equivalent of the Swiss army knife, meaning the ultimate professional instrument. The aesthetically and technically remarkable OMEGA Flightmaster symbolizes a period rich in technological and design breakthroughs. Produced over a short period and relatively little known until now, it nonetheless enjoyed exceptional development and an outstanding destiny, notably on the wrist of Soviet cosmonauts in the 1970s. Revealing the entirely unknown and remarkably rich story for the first time, and based on their own methodology, the authors of the successful Moonwatch Only book dedicated to the OMEGA Speedmaster, provide a comprehensive account of the many variations and evolutions of the different Flightmaster models. The result is an essential reference work for all passionate brand enthusiasts and collectors. Contents: Foreword Section 1: Introduction; Flightmaster - what's in a name?; Some key points; Operation; Ten misconceptions to reconsider Section 2: A Legend's Genesis and History; A world of change; Creating a legend; Famous aviators and the ultimate destiny of a tool-watch: Russian space adventures Section 3: Main Components; An original approach; Caliber; Case; Dial; Bezel; Hands; Crowns and pushers; Glass; Bracelet; Accessories Section 4: Models; Introduction; Overview; Timeline; Tables.

Differently to many other enthusiasts, John Goldberger does not simply collect period watches for the speculative pleasure - something that was certainly not uncommon in the years when he began frequenting the "watch world" - but rather due to his wish to gather together exceptional pieces, wether they be enhanced by a renowned signature, by the item's individual history, by its unusual style, or perhaps by outstanding technical features. This passion in fact drives him to patiently seek out excellently preserved examples - ones not even to be found in the Omega museum - most of which belong to John Goldberger's private collection. Mr. Goldberger's hand is not only responsible for the technical descriptions in the book, but also for the images: photography is in fact another of his great passions and has seen him as the editor and photographer behind a stimulating book of travel images... Giampiero Negretti. Estabilished in 1848 in La-Chaux-de-Fonds by Louis Brandt and later moved to Bienne (its current premises) in 1880, Omega became the company it is today only at the beginning of the last century. Indeed, prior to this the Louis Brandt products were known through the various make names that over the years were displayed on the watch faces - Jura, Patria, Helvetia and Labrador werev among these...
