Omega Celebrates The Silver Snoopy Speedmaster Moonwatch

It’s hard to keep a secret when the Speedmaster faithful are already well known, and 2020 will mark the 50th anniversary of Omega’s Speedmaster, which was awarded NASA’s Snoopy Award for its pivotal role in helping the Apollo 13 crew avert disaster. 1970. After a year of speculation, the 50th Anniversary Silver Snoopy Speedmaster is born, and not only is this new stainless steel reference not a limited edition, but it’s an absolute stunner with some very whimsical details – including an animated back cover – that make it an extremely popular Peanuts cartoon in conjunction with NASA’s prestigious Silver Snoopy Award for Speedmaster! A thoughtful connection has been made.

Although there have been two previous “Snoopy” Speedos (released in 2003 and 2015), you can’t mention these highly collectible references to the most iconic chronographs of all time until you provide some background on the awards and how the cartoon dog ended up being one of them. “The Snoopy Silver Award is one of NASA’s SFA (Space Flight Awareness) Awards, which recognizes NASA employees and their contractors for “outstanding achievements related to the safety of human flight or mission success”. The award itself is a hollow sterling silver lapel pin featuring a portrait of Snoopy and a letter of commendation from a NASA astronaut to the recipient. The Snoopy Award was given to Speedmaster after it proved its claim in helping to save the lives of the astronauts aboard the Apollo 13 space shuttle, and the rest is watch history.

Featuring an AG 925 silver dial (a nod to the solid Snoopy award-winning sterling silver lapel pin) with high-contrast PVD-coated blue elements, this model echoes the similar blue and white story of other past Omega limited editions (such as the Speedmaster CK 2998 LE), with a cheerful blue panda dial, similar to the 2015 release of the Silver The stark black and white “comic book” aesthetic of the Snoopy Award 45th Anniversary Edition is in stark contrast. Unlike that reference, which is limited to 1,970 pieces (which does make it very rare), the new 50th Anniversary Edition is not technically a limited edition,fake watches uk meaning that we may not see the same secondary market pricing eager to supremacy collectors once it becomes more widely available to the secondary market.
Omega has made impressive technical developments since 2015, and this new silver Snoopy Medallion watch takes full advantage of all those elements – from the new chronometer-certified 3861 calibre chronograph movement to the laser-etched 9 o’clock hands. The finish on the Snoopy Medallion is very clear. Then there’s the Naiad locking caseback, which cleverly preserves the orientation of the sapphire crystal, on which Snoopy’s use of micro-structured metallization depicts a scene of Snoopy orbiting the foreground satellite in the command module. But the real parlor trick here is twofold: first, the whisper-thin disc in the background is connected to a running second hand, thus completing a full rotation every minute.

OMEGA Aqua Terra 150m GMT review

Although this watch is a special edition, this review (at least internally) applies to all the rest of the Omega Aqua Terra 150m GMTs in the series that run on the same movement.The only major difference will be purely aesthetic.

At first glance, the Aqua Terra GMT is an aesthetically pleasing watch, to say the least, with a well balanced design and tapered hour markers. As with other models in the collection, the hour markers are almost like a slender triangle with a two-tone design that incorporates luminous materials.
The hour, minute and second hands are positioned above the GMT hands and feature luminescent fills for maximum visibility in low light conditions. The triangular tip of the GMT hands also contains some luminous material. The GMT hand is a short, red, arrow-shaped pointer that points to the GMT track in the center of the dial. Because it is 24-hour, GMT sweeps around the dial only once every 24 hours, while the ordinary hour hand rotates around the dial twice a day. Most GMT/Double Time watches don’t work this way, and that’s what makes them so unique.

Most models in the collection are available on a black alligator leather strap with either a steel bracelet or an 18kt rose gold bracelet. This model is the Aqua Terra GMT GoodPlanet Special Edition, a tribute to the GoodPlanet Foundation and the great work they do.

The case is 43mm long and combines polished and brushed finishes. The fixed bezel has a polished surface and the front of the lugs are engraved with a vertical brushed finish, but the bevelled side has a polished finish. The sides of the case have brushed surfaces. The winding crown and caseback are also beautifully polished.

The caseback has a transparent sapphire crystal and the watch is powered by the automatic cheap OMEGA in-house movement 8605. this self-winding movement is a 3.5 Hz movement that vibrates at 25,200 vph and contains 38 jewels. It is incredibly resistant to magnetic fields of up to 15,000 gauss.

Omega uses a hairspring made of Si14, which is magnetoresistive silicon. It also uses OMEGA’s Co-Axial escapement. The movement is beautifully decorated with a lovely vine pattern finish.
The Aqua Terra is a staple of the Seamaster collection. It’s a more casual, water-resistant watch that isn’t suitable for any professional diving per se, but is great for light swimming and can be worn in the shower.

The model reference number is and features a 43mm titanium case with an external blue fabric strap and white stitching. A soft calfskin leather lining is stitched to the inside of the strap with blue stitching and a push-button deployment (folding) clasp secures the strap.

All in all, this watch is a great choice for those who need to wear a watch every day and has a second time zone function, especially for those who travel or work between two different time zones and need to be reminded of the time it is in a secondary position.
