Omega Speedmaster "Tintin"

Last week I visited Göteborg with one of my daughters. We had a break in a cafe called “Tintin”. The covers of many Tintin comics were on the walls, I loved them when I was a child. So I came up with the idea of making a Tintin watchface.

But since one could not come to an agreement with the rights holders, this single piece disappeared in the archive.

I just added a UL version with dim mode.

Quite an interesting design for an Omega @G1NT0N1C ! :+1: :+1:The 2 red & white rings certainly give the face a bold look.

He must mean The adventures of Rin Tin Tin”! :woozy_face: :rofl: Many thanks for a great face G1N…and many thanks for broadening my knowledge of French comics!
