Exquisitely crafted, the Omega Speedmaster Moonwatch 3220.127.116.11.01.002 for men, features a fixed black bezel mounted on a satin finished stainless steel case, with bevelled edges. A tachymeter scale in stainless steel has been engraved on the bezel. The case contains a matte black dial with two chronograph sub dials, and a date window situated at the 6 o’clock position. Minute/second track and fractions of a second track are printed at the rim of the dial, in white. Appliquéd white, stick shaped indexes mark the hours with luminous fill inside. The white hour, minute, and second hands also adorn the dial with luminescent fill, enabling you to see the time even in dark.
At the 3 o’clock position, the minute and hour combined sub dial is present, and at the 9 o’clock position, the seconds sub dial is situated. A screw-in crown is present at the edge of the case along with two pushers on either side, enabling you to adjust the time and chronograph functions easily. The caseback of the watch is transparent and protected by a domed sapphire crystal, thus enabling you to see the movement inside. Sapphire crystal also protects the dial and makes it resistant to scratches. A president style, brushed stainless steel bracelet has been attached to the watch, with a push button foldover clasp.
You can wear this watch while swimming, as it is water resistant to a depth of 100 metres. It has a power reserve of 60 hours, thus you can keep this watch aside for more than two days and still find accurate time.Omega caliber 9300 has been used in the watch, which beats at a rate of 28,800 vph. There are 54 jewels used in the movement to reduce the friction and increase its longevity.
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.

The purely in-house movement, the comfortable oyster-esque bracelet with screw-pin-screw layout and the 44mm case which looks more like a 42mm minutes after wearing, and the sapphire case back. These things all come together under a canopy of the most sought after watch which still holds its own after Claude Baillod of Omega, in 1957 made the first Speedmaster.
To start off, this is NOT the professional. The thing that strikes you the most about this watch is the two sub-registers rather than three. The third is cleverly integrated into the seconds hand. This is again a co-axial escapement (Swiss: L’échappement Co-Axial), has a Si-14 hairspring as with other Omegas of this decade and is differentiated from 9301 in that this doesn’t have an 18ct. red gold rotor, balance bridge, black screws, balance wheel and barrels. This set-up makes this, again, a watch on the low maintenance schedule.
This one, again, is COSC certified, so no worrying about accuracy for at least five years, which is guaranteed by the Chrono certificate to run in between -6 to 4 a day.
This watch clearly has the Moonwatch DNA but makes another bold statement for a company that is on the right manufacturing path for years to come. The price comes as a shocker especially if you compare it to the ‘Professionals’ but if you look at Chronos of similar brands with the same set of features and the evolutionary tech behind it, one comes to appreciate this watch for what it is - a new Masterpiece.
