This 4K-video features two iconic steel chronographs being reloaded. Authentic! Iconic! Better than ever! The new Omega Speedmaster Professional Moonwatch is here. Now powered by the Calibre 3861 being Master Chronometer certified by METAS the Federal Institute of Metrology.
The watch features an asymmetrical 42 mm case in stainless steel – and is built in the classic 4th generation (the ST105.012) style that was worn by NASA Apollo 11 astronauts during history’s first moon landing. Choose it with the authentic hesalite glass with an embossed Seahorse caseback, or the alternative with sapphire-crystal glass on both sides.
These space-era tributes include the classic asymmetrical case, the step dial, the double bevel caseback, and the famous dot over 90 (DON) and a dot diagonal to 70 on the anodized aluminum bezel ring. Small but important details in the telling of the Speedmaster story.
It took Omega four years to produce a calibre that could achieve Master Chronometer certification, while also matching the dimensions of the previous Moonwatch movements – the 1861 and 861. The new calibre 3861 has done exactly that, while improving the power reserve, chronometric performance and magnetic resistance.
