To celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 lunar landing, prestigious watchmaker Omega has unveiled the return of its iconic Calibre 321 in the form of the first new Speedmaster Moonwatch to house the movement.
“Known for its beautifully intricate design, the original Calibre 321 was the first movement ever used in the OMEGA Speedmaster in 1957. Most famously, it was used in a variety of space-bound models including those that went to the moon. After extensive research and reconstruction in a dedicated workshop, the Calibre 321 has now been reborn in-line with its original specifications.”
“To view the reconstructed movement, customers will be able to look through the sapphire-crystal caseback of the new Speedmaster Moonwatch 321 Platinum. As the name suggests, the chronograph features a 42 mm brushed and polished case crafted from a special platinum alloy with the use of gold (Pt950Au20). The case design is inspired by the asymmetrical 4th generation Speedmaster case with twisted lugs (ST 105.012), and is presented on a black leather strap with a platinum buckle. Furthermore, this exciting timepiece includes a black ceramic bezel with the Speedmaster’s famous tachymeter scale in white enamel.”
Unfortunately, no information on pricing has been released as yet by Omega for the new Omega Speedmaster Moonwatch, but as soon as information comes to light, we will keep you updated as always. Although Omega has said that the new watch will be available sometime during “this winter.”
