After a very successful limited run of its caliber 321-featuring platinum Moonwatch last year, Omega has now answered to popular demand and brought back the legendary caliber 321 in a non-limited-edition Speedmaster, providing fans with a stainless-steel option.
The new Speedmaster Moonwatch 321 Stainless Steel pays homage to the ref. 105.003 worn by famed astronaut Ed White in 1965 when he became the first American to walk in space, using the same precise 39.70mm third-generation case coupled with a polished black ceramic bezel featuring a clean white enamel tachymeter scale. Three sub-dials grace the face of the watch, providing small seconds, a 30-minute timer, and a 12-hour recorder. Of course, most significantly, the watch is powered by the Swiss brand’s caliber 321, a holy grail of a movement last manufactured in 1968. Each unit is assembled, timed, and regulated by a single watchmaker, ensuring the highest of qualities and consistencies.
For the watch lovers out there, the new Omega Speedmaster Moonwatch 321 Stainless Steel will be available early 2020, retailing at $14,100 USD. Head over to the brand’s website to learn more now.
