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.
