OMEGA has just introduced a new limited edition model dedicated to the online community of #SpeedyTuesday fans. Created by Fratello Watches founder Robert-Jan Broer in 2012, this hashtag bas been used over 41,000 on Instagram by Speedmaster chronograph devotees from all around the world. To honor and celebrate Speedmaster fans, OMEGA has created the special Speedy Tuesday Limited Edition Speedmaster, which takes its design cues from the original 1978 “Speedmaster Alaska III” model.

The historical Speedmaster (on the left) was originally developed for NASA astronauts, who wanted a precise, reliable chronograph, that is also anti-reflective and easy-to-read in space.

The Omega Speedmaster Speedy Tuesday limited edition features a brushed, matt-finis stainless steel case and the reverse panda dial, with black background and white, luminescent radial subdials. White opaline-silvery subdials are set against a black backdrop, and embraced by a bezel ring and tachymeter scale in matt-black aluminum.

The vintage Omega logo, all markings, and sub-dials, are coated in green-emission bright luminescent paint, while the dial is covered with a domed hesalite crystal with a central OMEGA logo. The solid case-back is stamped with the recognizable seahorse medallion, encircled by the lettering SPEEDY TUESDAY ANNIVERSARY - A TRIBUTE TO ALASKA PROJECT III, the word RADIAL and the limited edition number.

The perfectly round case of Omega Speedmaster Speedy Tuesday Limited Edition measures 42mm in diameter, housing the hand-wound calibre 1861, which is exactly the same mechanism that powered the legendary NASA chronographs.

At BaselWorld 2016, Omega presented 6 new movements and no less than 46 models carrying the Master Chronometer rating.

In 2015, the house of Omega released the Omega Globemaster, a watch that carries the prestigious title of being the world’s first master chronometer. At that time, Omega promised to continue the Master Chronometer saga, and introduce a number of new models certified by the Swiss Federal Institute of Metrology (METAS). The new era of excellence continues this year, as Omega slowly fulfills its plan to certify the majority of its mechanical watches as Master Chronometers by 2020. Among the latest additions is the entire range of n...

In 2015, on the occasion of the BaselWorld trade show, Omega introduced the Globemaster, which was announced as the world's first Master Chronometer. The legendary Globemaster, which is both COSC and METAS certified, now returns with an update, and with a new case diameter. The Omega Globemaster Annual Calendar is increased from 39mm to 41mm, allowing for even better visibility of the vintage-inspired Pie Pan dial. The watch face is also revealed in a completely new shade of grey, evoking the early Constellation models.

However, the changes are not merely cosmetic. The most important update is on the inside, since the brand new movement drives the Globemaster Annual Calendar. The new OMEGA Co-Axial Master Chronometer Calibre 8922 movement features an instantaneous jump mechanism, which controls the movement of the blue-varnished month hand. The hand travels along the month track, where each month has been positioned between blued indexes. Omega omitted the day of the week indicator, and, instead, it opted for a more restrained design, with a date window appear...

Pre-Baselworld 2016: Omega Speedmaster Moonphase Chronograph Master Chronometer

A couple of weeks ahead of the BaselWorld 2016 trade show, Omega gives us a look at its new Speedmaster Moonphase Chronograph. The watch, which was first announced in January this year, is a 44mm stainless steel piece with a deep blue dial and a moon-phase complication at 6 o’clock. A moonphase complication in a sports watch is quite unusual, and pretty much senseless, but not in this case, since Omega Speedmaster is no stranger to the lunar surface. The manual winding Speedmaster Professional or "Moonwatch" was worn during the first Amer...

OMEGA has presented a charming new model designed as a tribute to the 45th anniversary of the historic Apollo 13 mission.

In 1966, OMEGA issued two Speedmaster references (105.012, and 145.012) to be worn on the Moon by Apollo astronauts. Even though Speedmasters were used throughout the early manned Apollo program, Buzz Aldrin was the first who actually wore the watch outside of the Lunar Module. Aldrin’s Speedmaster thus became the first watch to be worn on the surface of the Moon, so this particular model is often dubbed the Moonwatch. Even though Aldrin believed that “... few things are less necessary when walking around on the moon than knowing what time it i...

Here’s an exclusive, yet unofficial, preview of OMEGA’s new Seamaster Bullhead, which will be released in anticipation of the Rio 2016 Olympic Games.

To honor this important sports event, OMEGA releases another version of its historical Seamaster Bullhead. About two years ago, in 2013, omega reissued three limited-edition versions of the original 1969 Seamaster Bullhead. The historical bullhead is one of the most collectable and most recognizable chronographs ever produced, a watch that is distinguished by its shield-shaped case, the inner revolving bezel, and its chrono-pushers placed at the top the case. The new, celebratory version of the Seamaster Bullhead, stays true to the recogniza...
