A year after Omega unveiled a modern reworking of its historic Calibre 321 and six months after it was first used in a commercial model — a Moonwatch in platinum — the company is taking the movement mainstream by releasing a steel version of the watch.

The design has been inspired by a 1965 Speedmaster ST 105.003 worn by astronaut Edward White when he became the first American to walk in space.

It comes in a 39.7mm case with a black ceramic bezel with its tachymeter scale in white enamel. The modern 321 movement can be seen through a sapphire case back.

The black dial adopts familiar Moonwatch hands, small seconds sub-dial, 30-minute recorder, 12-hour recorder, and central chronograph hand.

The watch will be available from the end of March priced at £11,300.

  1. I’m’ sure you have done your research Omega but my experience of this watch over the last 40 years is that it sells because of what it is, I have a ‘Snoopy’ from 2006 myself. There is a trail of failed models behind this latest one which have tried to capitalise on the back of the Speedmasters legendary inclusion in the Apollo kit list. Mess with this classics at your perrill.
