Omega comes clean with glossy white dialled Speedmaster Moonwatch

First seen on the wrist of brand ambassador Daniel Craig, the white with black Moonwatch has landed in the core collection.

Daniel Craig set social media alight when he wore a bright white version of Omega’s modern Speedmaster Moonwatch to the Planet Omega Exhibition in New York last year.

Now the watch, which has a glossy lacquered dial with white inset subdials, has been given its commercial launch in a reverse of the highly legible monochrome styling of the original Moonwatch.

In addition to its white dial with black hands, markers and tachymeter bezel, Omega has chosen to present the Speedmaster name in red for the first time.

The mostly white with black colour combination, including the flash of red in the Speedmaster logo and at the tip of a central chronograph hand, is inspired by the space suits of modern astronauts.

Using white also establishes a connection to the 1969 Omega Alaska I prototype, which came out of a project with NASA to design the perfect space watch.

The 42mm steel watch uses Omega’s recently introduced Co-Axial Master Chronometer Calibre 3861 – a modern hand wound remake of the Calibre 321 that powered Speedmasters during Apollo lunar landings.

Omega has the watch priced at £7,600, and it is only available in physical boutiques for now.

A spokesperson for Omega told WatchPro that boutiques can get priority for new launches and watches are often not immediately available online. Customers can join a waiting list via the brand’s ecommerce site and will be contacted when stock is released for online sales.

The new Speedmaster can be bought on a five row steel bracelet or a range of straps.
