Omega has marked the 51st anniversary of man first landing on the moon with a 39.7mm Speedmaster Moonwatch housing the re-issued Calibre 321 that it launched last year in a platinum version of the watch.
Fewer than 2,000 of the 321 are expected to be made every year so, while the steel Moonwatch is not limited, it will be in short supply, which might explain the £11,950 price tag that will be attached to the watch when it goes on sale in September.
Omega continues to manufacture the platinum model, so there will be an even great squeeze on the supply of the 321 for the steel model.
Omega first revealed that it would be making the 321-powered Moonwatch in steel in January this year, but the uncertainty of production and launch schedules because of the Covid-19 pandemic means today’s news feels like something new and exciting for Speedy fans.
It has a bezel ring in polished black ceramic with a tachymeter scale in white enamel and a sapphire crystal case back exposing the Calibre 321.
