#SpeedyTuesday Gets a Limited Edition Omega Speedmaster

Celebrating the hashtag’s fifth anniversary.

By //Fashion

Aptly named “The Moonwatch,” Omega’s Speedmaster is its most iconic watch, adorned on the wrist of astronaut Buzz Aldrin in 1969 for the first NASA lunar landing. In 2012, Robert-Jan Broer coined the now widely used and popular term and hashtag #SpeedyTuesday on social media sites like Instagram when talking about Omega Speedmaster Chronographs. To celebrate the fifth anniversary of the term, Omega launched a limited edition Speedy Tuesday Speedmaster Professional based off the 1978 Alaska Project III watch created for NASA.

The wrist candy, limited to 2012 pieces, is characterized by a “Reverse Panda” dial design — first used by Omega in 1966 — coated in plexiglass, luminescent-coated large Arabic numerals on the subdials, a vintage logo on the dial and a 42mm steel case housing a manually-wound caliber 1861 movement which beats at 3Hz (21,600 vph), has 18 jewels and a 48-hour power reserve.

Specific details like “SPEEDY TUESDAY ANNIVERSARY – A TRIBUTE TO ALASKA PROJECT III” are engraved on the caseback along with the limited edition number and the Speedmaster Seahorse medallion. This celebratory watch comes with both a vintage brown leather strap as well as a black and white NATO strap with #SpeedyTuesday engraved onto the loop, as well as a strap changing tool, carrying pouch and cleaning cloth.

This beauty retails for $6,500 USD and is expected for a Summer 2017 delivery.

All reservations have been filled, but you can check out more details here.
