New Watches 2024: The OMEGA Speedmaster White Dial Unveiled

Exploring the NEW OMEGA Speedmaster White Dial

Calling all timepiece lovers! OMEGA has just unveiled the newest iteration of its iconic Speedmaster Moonwatch, and it is nothing short of spectacular. This eagerly-awaited edition features a mesmerizing lacquered white dial, drawing inspiration from the vast realms of space exploration and the remarkable heritage of the Moonwatch collection.

Daniel Craig, OMEGA Brand Ambassador 

The buzz around this captivating model officially started back in November 2023 when the then-unreleased watch was spotted on the wrist of OMEGA brand ambassador, Daniel Craig, at the Planet OMEGA Exhibition in New York. Since then, clients have been on the edge of their seats, eagerly anticipating the official reveal – and the day has finally come! 


New Watch Release: The OMEGA Speedmaster White Dial

What sets this edition apart is its rare white dial, a stunning contrast from the classic black dial that has long characterized the Speedmaster Moonwatch. This reversed the colorway is an exciting addition to any timepiece collection. The dial's surface is given a glossy lacquered finish, marking the first time this technique has been used on the Moonwatch's step dial.

But why white? The primary inspiration behind this dial is the white and black colors of astronaut spacesuits, particularly those used during spacewalks. This is especially fitting because the Speedmaster Moonwatch has been an integral part of NASA astronaut gear since 1965, earning its reputation as the first watch worn on the Moon! The addition of red detailing, including the standout Speedmaster name in red, pays homage to the commander's rank, with red lines on spacesuits denoting this distinction since Apollo 13 in 1970.

Delving deeper into the history, OMEGA's decision to go white also traces back to the 1969 ALASKA I prototype, created as part of a secret NASA project to design the perfect space watch. The white dial was chosen for its effective thermal reflection coefficient, and the red Speedmaster name on the new model harks back to the protective red case that surrounded the original ALASKA I watch.



One of The Best Watches For Men? Here's Why:

Beyond its visually striking dial, OMEGA has meticulously crafted the 42 mm stainless steel timepiece. It is presented on a comfortable and vintage-inspired stainless steel bracelet with five arched links per row, featuring polished and brushed detailing. For those seeking alternative styles, two more versions are available – one on a black micro-perforated leather strap with red and white stitching, and another on a rubber strap with a moon surface pattern in positive relief on the underside, enhancing both comfort and aesthetics.

For devoted Moonwatch fans, the black anodized aluminum bezel of each timepiece boasts the famous "Dot over Ninety" on the tachymeter scale. Inside, the watch is powered by the Co-Axial Master Chronometer Calibre 3861, the most up-to-date version of the legendary Calibre 321 that earned astronauts' trust during lunar missions.

There’s no question that this latest Speedmaster Moonwatch edition is a seamless fusion of innovation and history. It's not just a timepiece, it's a symbol of the spirit of exploration. Get ready to elevate your wrist game with this masterpiece that seamlessly weaves together the legacy of the Moonwatch with cutting-edge design and functionality.
