Why We Love it

We love a good modern watch with a nod to heritage executed tastefully!

The Speedmaster Professional Alaska Project Edition honors the late 1960s watches developed by Omega specifically for the emerging field of lunar exploration. In order to obfuscate the end customer — NASA — Omega picked a random word for the project name. The prototypes developed were technically not Speedmasters, but shared the 861 movement used in the Speedies of the time. Shrouded in aluminum heat shields, they would make for unwieldy wristwatches today, but thankfully, Omega sought to honor them with a more wearable, limited edition-reissue — the Speedmaster Professional Alaska Project Edition. 

This particular Speedmaster Professional Alaska Project Edition features a 42mm steel case with twisted lyre lugs, a handsome white dial with characteristic “Alaska Project” handset (including a red chronograph seconds hand), a matching steel bracelet, an outer black tachymeter bezel, and the Omega Calibre 1861 hand-wound movement. It also comes with its inner and outer boxes, two signed nylon straps, books, pictograms, leather cardholder, warranty card from Tourneau dated to 1999, limited edition card, and factory price sticker. 

In virtually unworn condition, this Speedmaster Professional Alaska Project Edition is the perfect Speedy for someone who prefers his classics to be somewhat left of center.

Brand Story

+
The story of Omega is one that captivates generations of horological devotees. The second-largest watchmaker in the world in terms of annual turnover, the Bienne-based firm has been continuously producing watches since 1848, which it does today under the auspices of the Swatch Group.

Founded in La-Chaux-de-Fonds, Switzerland as La Generale Watch Co, Omega was well ahead of the horological curve from the beginning, developing the first minute-repeating wristwatch in 1892 as well as the eponymous “Omega” caliber in 1894. This 19-ligne movement was revolutionary in that its parts could be replaced by any watchmaker in the world without modification, while its winding and time-setting via the crown provided an industry standard.

Omega became the timepiece supplier of choice for the British Royal Flying Corps in 1917, while the Americans followed suit in 1918, choosing their watches for the U.S. Army. Awards for precision chronometry became almost commonplace, while 1932 saw them become the first watch brand to time an entire Olympic Games. Their Marine, which debuted the same year, is regarded as the first commercially available diver’s watch.

During the Second World War, Omega supplied well over 100,000 timepieces to British forces, making it the largest watch supplier to the British and her allies. These watches, from the unique 6B/159 to the famed “Dirty Dozen” W.W.W, remain highly collectible today.

1948 saw the launch of the original Seamaster: Built upon the tool watch legacy of the brand’s timepieces from the War, it’s since become a byword for reliability and legibility, both as a dress watch and, more recently, as a serious diver’s tool. The Speedmaster, released in 1957 and originally marketed for the auto-racing market, first rocketed to space on the wrist of American astronaut Wally Schirra in 1962. However, it became a household name when, in 1969, it accompanied Buzz Aldrin on the Moon, and later helped save the space-stranded crew of Apollo 13 in 1970 by timing a critical rocket burn.

Today, Omega’s watches — all of which feature in-house movements — run the gamut from svelte dress pieces to the venerable Speedmaster in all its guises. Providing an unquestionable value proposition, Omega is a brand that deserves to be at the center of every serious watch lover’s collection.
