The Speedmaster story is one that took the watchmaking industry and Omega to new spheres. 50 years after receiving the Silver Snoopy Award from the astronauts at NASA for its contribution to space exploration, Omega is celebration this milestone with a new watch, the Speedmaster “Silver Snoopy Award” 50th Anniversary.
This 42mm chronograph boasts a stainless-steel case along with a blue bezel and sub-dials complementing its silver dial. Like its predecessor, the 9 o’clock sees the world’s most famous beagle, Snoopy, staring at the stars with the words “50th anniversary” written above him.
This limited edition features a very distinctive caseback. It offers a view of the Moon, Earth and of Snoopy at the helm of a NASA spaceship. More than a visual experience it is also a watchmaking one, as the Earth revolves once every minute in tandem with the Earth’s rotation, while Snoopy’s ship travels around the far side of the moon when the chronograph is triggered.
The Speedmaster community is one of the most passionate amongst collectors and this coveted release will only fire them up even more.
