Omega Speedmaster Moonwatch White Lacquer Dial

Posted by lifata on March 19th, 2024

OMEGA has added a new color dial to its Speedmaster Moonwatch collection, a timeless classic from the brand that accompanied six lunar missions. The brilliant white lacquered dial offers a distinctive charm from the existing matte black dial.

The new Speedmaster Moonwatch white version actually attracted attention when Daniel Craig, star actor of the 007 series and Omega brand ambassador, wore it in advance and appeared at the Planet OMEGA replica exhibition held in New York in November last year. I collected it. The characteristic white dial symbolizes the succession of a prototype specially produced in 1969 for the so-called Alaska Project, a secret program of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA). However, unlike the previous generation Alaska Project Re-Edition released as a limited edition in 2008, the large red colored protective case was omitted.

The stainless steel case has a diameter of 42mm and a thickness of 13.2mm, and the size is the same as the existing Speedmaster Moonwatch Professional renewed in 2021. The white dial with multiple layers of glossy lacquer, black details on the indexes, hands, and bezel were inspired by the spacesuits worn by astronauts during extra vehicular activities (EVA for short) such as space walks. no see. And the red accent on the chronograph seconds hand is inspired by the red line that has been applied to space suits since Apollo 13 captain Jim Lovell. This was said to be a symbol of the rank of Commander at NASA in the 1970s. This new white dial product also has the ‘Speedmaster’ print in red, differentiating it from the previous generation Alaska watch replicas uk. It's a very subtle difference in detail, but it's definitely a design element that will appeal to Speedmaster enthusiasts.

The movement is equipped with the same in-house manual chronograph caliber 3861 as the existing Moonwatch. Based on the stable design of the classic Moonwatch Caliber 1861, it includes the Co-Axial escapement, a symbolic part of the Omega Manufacture Caliber, and a silicon balance spring in place of the existing Nivarox on the free-sprung balance. In addition, it underwent rigorous testing on a total of 8 items over 10 days through the Swiss Federal Institute of Metrology (METAS) and received the Master Chronometer certification, certifying that the watch operates normally even in a strong magnetic field environment of over 15,000 gauss. . Of course, like all Omega best fake watches, it is backed by a 5-year international warranty. The power reserve is guaranteed to be about 50 hours, which is about 2 hours more than the 1861. The movement can be viewed through the transparent sapphire crystal case back (the white lacquered dial is not available in the solid case back version). Case water resistance is 50m.

As with the previous model, each link of the satin-brushed and polished steel bracelet is arched inward to improve wearing comfort, and the retro-style clasp features the polished OMEGA logo with a vertical stripe pattern engraving. The design remains unchanged.
