Why We Love it

3… 2… 1… Liftoff!

Take a poll amongst wristwatch collectors, and we'd bet the consensus would be that there’s no timepiece more important or iconic than an Omega Speedmaster. 

Sure, chronographs such as the Rolex Daytona or the Heuer Carrera are classics — icons even — but neither can match the stature of the Speedy with regards to historical importance. In fact, arguably, no watch can.

In 2020, Speedmaster fans finally got what they’d been waiting years for.

That January, Omega launched a stainless steel Speedy based on the venerable Reference 105.003 ‘Ed White’ with a completely remade Calibre 321 hand-wound movement. Assembled by a single watchmaker in Omega’s manufacture in Biel/Bienne, this watch represented the fulfillment of a dream of so many Speedmaster devotees: To see the return of a movement that saw action on the surface of the Moon.

The new 321 is nearly a note-for-note copy of a second-generation 321, scanned by Omega from the watch worn by astronaut Gene Cernan in a Reference ST105.003 during Apollo 17. Though it replaces the copper finish of the original with more stable Sedna gold — and it’s viewable via a sapphire exhibition caseback — it’s otherwise largely identical to the original. 

The watch itself? It’s a beaut — and though it’s not a limited edition, production itself is highly limited given the constraints around the movement. Housed in a 39.7mm stainless steel ‘straight-lug’ case with a sapphire crystal, a black ceramic tachymeter “ DO90” bezel with white enamel printing, a signed crown, and dual pump pushers, it features a luminous matte black dial with a matching handset, an outer 1/5th-seconds track, and a triple-register chronograph layout with recessed sub registers.

The watch comes fitted to a handsome, contemporary recreation of the 1039 flat-link bracelet with polished outer links and brushed center links, plus a signed, push-button deployant clasp.

If you’re a Speedy purist, a space race geek, or you simply love a good chronograph, then you owe it to yourself to check out this 321.

Overall Condition

The case is in outstanding condition overall showing light signs of wear consistent with age and use. Luminous matte black dial is in as-new condition with matching handset. Signed crown. Sapphire exhibition caseback.

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.
