3..2..1..Touchdown!

Omega unveils the new Speedmaster Moonwatch 321 Platinum to mark the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 lunar landing.

Earlier this year, the Swatch Group brand OMEGA announced the return of their iconic Calibre 321- the first movement ever which was used in the OMEGA Speedmaster in 1957 in a variety of space-bound models including the first piece which made its way to the moon.

Today, 50 years after the first lunar lading, OMEGA unveiled their most-talked about launch, the Speedmaster Moonwatch 321 Platinum. The best part? The new Speedmaster comes with the latest edition of the Calibre 321 which is visible through the sapphire-crystal caseback of the watch.

The 42mm chronograph comes in, as the name suggests, a special platinum alloy which uses gold. The case design is inspired by the asymmetrical 4th generation Speedmaster case with twisted lugs, and is presented on a black leather strap with a platinum buckle.

The dial is made of onyx and has a deep black colour that goes well with the 18K white gold used for the indexes and hands – except for the central chronograph seconds hand. The notable feature of the piece are the three meteorite subdials which were designed using real slices of moon meteorite.
