Since its inception, the OMEGA Speedmaster Moonwatch has held iconic status, symbolizing humanity's exploration beyond the bounds of Earth.

Now, the latest iteration of this legendary timepiece has been unveiled, featuring a striking lacquered white dial that pays tribute to both space exploration and the rich heritage of Speedmaster models.

The anticipation for this new model began in November 2023 when it was first seen on the wrist of OMEGA brand ambassador Daniel Craig at the Planet OMEGA exhibition in New York. Now, after much speculation, the watch has been officially introduced and is set to capture enthusiasts worldwide.

At the heart of this stunning timepiece lies its rare white dial, a departure from the traditional black variant of its predecessors. This design choice not only offers exceptional legibility but also serves as a homage to astronaut space suits, particularly those worn during spacewalks.

The connection to space exploration is deeply ingrained in the DNA of the Speedmaster watch, with NASA astronauts officially wearing the watch since 1965, making it the first watch worn on the Moon.

Delving into the historical significance of the white dial, we find recognition of OMEGA's pioneering work with the ALASKA I prototype in 1969. This secret NASA project aimed to design the perfect space watch, ultimately choosing the white dial for its effective heat reflection coefficient. The red "Speedmaster" name on the new model pays tribute to the protective red case that surrounded the original ALASKA I watch, further reinforcing its legacy.

In addition to its aesthetic appeal, the OMEGA Speedmaster Moonwatch boasts impeccable craftsmanship and functionality. The 42mm stainless steel case is complemented by a bracelet with polished and brushed details, offering a classic yet contemporary look. Additional strap options, including a black micro-perforated leather strap and an antibacterial rubber strap, cater to different preferences while ensuring comfort and style.

The watch is powered by the Co-Axial Master Chronometer Calibre 3861, the latest iteration of the legendary Calibre 321 trusted by astronauts during lunar missions.
