    It’s the Moonwatch everyone has been waiting for! A stainless steel Speedmaster with the legendary Calibre 321 inside. This famous movement has been to the moon and back, and has now been completely recreated to its original specifications. Get inside and discover every part!


    THE SPEEDMASTER MOONWATCH 321 STAINLESS STEEL

    The legendary OMEGA Speedmaster is one of the world’s most iconic timepieces, having played a role in all six lunar missions. Powering this stainless steel model is the famous Calibre 321, the driving force behind the chronograph’s extraordinary space history.

    LEGEND IN STEEL

    Inspired by the same 3rd generation style that astronaut Ed White wore during America’s first spacewalk in 1965, this 39.7 mm model features a bezel ring in polished black ceramic [ZrO2], a tachymeter scale in white enamel; and a black step dial with Moonwatch hands and vintage OMEGA logo.

    The 321 is still highly sought?after by collectors around the world. As a tribute to its enduring popularity, OMEGA undertook extensive research and reconstruction in a dedicated workshop. Now, more than 50 years on from its last wave of production, the Calibre 321 has been reborn, in?line with its original specifications.

    EVOLUTION OF A MOVEMENT
    • ORIGINAL CALIBRE 321

      A descendent of the 27 CHRO C12, the enhanced chronograph movement, named in 1949, retained the intricate column-wheel feature popular with collectors. The 321 powered the Speedmasters qualified by NASA for use on all manned space missions and drove the chronographs worn by Apollo 11 astronauts.

    As a nation of freemen, we must live through all time, or die by suicide".

    Breaking News: The New Steel Speedmaster With Caliber 321 “Ed White”

    It's here, finally!

    On this very first Speedy Tuesday of 2020, we have some exciting news to share with you. It took Omega exactly one year from the introduction of the new caliber 321 to the introduction of the first steel Speedmaster with this movement. On this very day, one year ago, Speedy Tuesday fans were invited to Biel to witness the re-introduction of this column-wheel chronograph movement, and the guessing began.

    Only a few out there guessed it right, and in hindsight, it is easy to tell you that the big give-away was the watch that was used as the subject for their tomography process to get the exact version of the caliber 321 that was used in Gene Cernan’s watch, a Speedmaster 105.003.
