In the year 1969, as Omega broke its terrestrial bonds and stepped into space, the distinguished brand also launched the Speedmaster Mark II. Cut to 2014, the series has been reorganized and features new designs and better technology.
The Omega Speedmaster “Mark II” 318.104.22.168.06.001 has a round, grey dial that features three sub-dials. A small seconds dial is placed at 9 o’clock, the 12-hour recorder is placed at 6 o’clock and the 30-minute recorder at 3 o’clock. The minute and the hour hands are in white and black, while the seconds hand is a bright fluorescent orange. An anti-reflective and scratch-resistant Sapphire crystal zealously guards the dial from external wear and tear. A transparent tachymeter scale, used to measure speed, is engraved upon the Sapphire crystal, and can be easily read even in the dark as a fluorescent orange ring that is filled with Super-Lumoniva illuminates it from below.
Encompassing the mechanics of the timepiece is a 42.4 mm, stainless steel, barrel shaped case. A winding screw is attached to the side of the timepiece flanked by the two push buttons of the stopwatch. The three pieces link, matching steel bracelet that comes with a deployment clasp can be easily adjusted for comfort.
With an Omega caliber of 3330, the chronograph has a self-winding, automatic movement. A special column wheel mechanism makes use of an innovative ratchet wheel for enhanced stopwatch functions. The Co-Axial Escapement also provides military precision in time telling while prolonging the durability of the watch. Its free sprung-balance and Si14 silicon balance spring protect the timepiece from external shocks and changes in pressure.
The watch is water-resistant to a depth of 100 metres and has a power reserve of 52 hours. The chronometer is certified by the Contrôle Officiel Suisse des Chronomètres (COSC) a rigorous 15 day and 15 night test, that guarantees the reliability of the timepiece.
Omega launched its range of Chronograph watches in the year 1957, under the Speedmaster collection. Originally, the watches in this collection were designed as a sports and racing chronograph, and not for space exploration. It was then selected by NASA in 1965 for all manned space flights.
This remarkable collection of Chronograph watches has been exemplified in several series. Featuring a timeless design, the rugged and reliable Moonwatch Chronograph, is a classic chronograph. The Speedmaster professional was the first watch to be worn on the moon and on all NASA’s manned missions since then. The Dark Side of the Moon collection is a tribute to the astronauts of the Apollo 8 who were the first to see the dark side of the moon. With a metallic grey bezel built from white ceramic, the Grey Side of the Moon has been inspired by the lunar dust, which has preserved all the steps of mankind on the moon. An updated form of the classic Mark II was launched in 2014, which features an illuminated tachymeter. Honouring the decades-long connection of the chronographs with motor racing, the Racing was launched. To commemorate the historic occasion of the first lunar landing, the Apollo 11 45th Anniversary was launched, with its case crafted from grade 2 titanium. Other compelling series from the Speedmaster Collection include the Speedmaster 57, HB-SIA, Skywalker X-33 and Spacemaster Z-33.
The first watch on the moon was the “Omega Speedmaster Professional Chronograph”, worn by astronaut Buzz Aldrin. The producer, director, writer, and Hollywood actor, Tom Hanks and the adventurer, explorer, and mountaineer, Reinhold Messner, have been seen wearing an Omega Seamaster Professional.
