Speedmaster “Speedy Tuesday” Limited Edition

In tribute to these chronograph devotees of #SpeedyTuesday

The Watch Quote™ - January 11th, 2017



For half a decade, an online community of #SpeedyTuesday fans has been steadily growing around the world. In tribute to these chronograph devotees, Omega is proud to introduce a new Limited Edition model that blends some of the Speedmaster’s most popular design features.




Space heritage

The “Speedy Tuesday” takes its first design influence from the original 1978 “Speedmaster Alaska III” model. This watch was produced for NASA, who insisted on a watch that was anti-reflective and easy-to-read in space. For that reason, the “Speedy Tuesday” has stayed true to these qualities with a brushed matt-finish stainless steel case and radial subdials with enlarged numerals.

1977

“The return of OMEGA’s radial subdials is just one of the vintage touches in the watch.”




The “Reverse Panda” dial

In creating the dial, Omega has again taken inspiration from the past. This time, it’s the return of the “Reverse Panda” first seen in 1966. White opaline-silvery subdials are set against a black dial, encircled with a bezel ring and tachymeter scale in matt-black aluminium. There is a rare appearance of the vintage Omega logo and all markings and radial subdials have been coated with bright luminescent ink.


“The 42 mm case embraces the anti-reflective qualities of the Speedmasters worn in space”




A classic movement

The Speedmaster “Speedy Tuesday” is driven by the hand-wound calibre 1861, virtually the same movement that powered the timepieces NASA’s astronauts wore on the moon. Built with a high-grade rhodium-plated finish, it represents an important step in the Speedmaster evolution.




Unique touches

Protecting the dial is a domed hesalite crystal with a central Omega logo. The caseback is stamped with the iconic seahorse medallion and encircled by the words SPEEDY TUESDAY ANNIVERSARY - A TRIBUTE TO ALASKA PROJECT III as well as the Limited Edition number. The word RADIAL circles the outer edge. Finally, the watch is presented on a brown leather strap with a vintage cut and stitching.

“A polished vintage OMEGA logo also appears on the matt crown.”




Special presentation roll

The “Speedy Tuesday” is limited to 2012 pieces, marking the year that the online trend began. Each timepiece is presented in a special leather watch roll containing a black and white NATO strap with #SpeedyTuesday engraved on the strap's loop. The roll also contains a strap changing tool.
