OMEGA Launches Speedmaster Moonwatch With White Dial

Already renowned as the most iconic chronograph on Earth, the OMEGA Speedmaster Moonwatch is launched in its newest edition – this time with a lacquered white dial inspired by space exploration and the collection’s own famous heritage.

This captivating model has been hotly anticipated by OMEGA Moonwatch fans since November 2023, when the very first edition was spotted on the wrist of OMEGA brand ambassador, Daniel Craig, at the Planet OMEGA Exhibition in New York. Now, the design has been officially revealed, and will be available for public sale.

Not only does the new OMEGA Speedmaster Moonwatch feature a rare white dial with black hands and applied indexes for superb legibility, but the designers have also added a stand-out Speedmaster name in red, and given the entire surface a glossy lacquered finish.

The inspiration for the new look OMEGA Speedmaster Moonwatch is the white and black colours of astronaut spacesuits – especially those used during extravehicular activity (EVA), such as spacewalks. An authentic connection after all, as the Speedmaster Moonwatch has been officially worn by NASA astronauts since 1965 and is known as the first watch worn on the Moon.

Another reason to go white is the ALASKA I prototype, which OMEGA created in 1969 as part of their secret NASA project to design the perfect space watch. After months of experiments, OMEGA chose a white dial because it provides a particularly effective thermal reflection coefficient.

The red Speedmaster name on the new model is also a nod to the protective red case that surrounded the original ALASKA I watch.

The 42 mm stainless steel timepiece is presented on a vintage-inspired stainless steel bracelet with five arched links per row for a classic look. Two more versions are also available, including one on a black micro-perforated leather strap with red and white stitching, and another on an anti-bacterial rubber strap.

For Moonwatch fans, the black anodized aluminium bezel of each timepiece has been given a famous “Dot over Ninety” on the tachymeter scale, while inside, the watch is driven by the OMEGA Co-Axial Master Chronometer Calibre 3861 – the most up-to-date version of the legendary Calibre 321 that was trusted by astronauts on the moon.
