WRISTWATCHES have always been a symbol of elegance and exclusivity that lasts for generations. Watch enthusiasts and horologists alike believe that timepieces embody both technology and craftsmanship.
Some watches are equipped to read temperatures, navigate, and even measure speed. Above all, a luxury wristwatch is the ultimate statement piece that epitomises class and sophistication.
A LIFETIME OF EXCELLENCE
PERFECT OMEGA REPLICA has always been known for its commitment to excellence, which is why they were chosen by NASA to be a part of their space programme in 1965.
During the Apollo 13 space mission, the explosion of an oxygen tank forced the astronauts to conserve energy by shutting down the power supply. This meant they had to rely entirely on the BEST FAKE OMEGA Speedmaster to time a precise 14-second burn, so they could manually readjust their course.
It was after this momentous event that the Speedmaster was christened as the ‘Moonwatch’ for its noteworthy contribution in bringing the astronauts home safely.On October 5, 1970, OMEGA also received the coveted “Silver Snoopy Award” from the astronauts at NASA, an award to recognise the outstanding efforts of organisations that have assisted in space exploration efforts. Exactly 50 years later, a special timepiece has been created in honour of the occasion, the 1:1 QUALITY REPLICA OMEGA Speedmaster “Silver Snoopy Award” 50th Anniversary.
A CELESTIAL CELEBRATION
This novel wristwatch pays homage to the Apollo 13 mission, and it comes in a stunning colour profile of astronaut blue, white and silver. The iconic Speedmaster features a caseback with an animated display that is linked to the timepiece’s internal mechanism, showcasing a departure from the usual Moonwatch aesthetic.
Against the backdrop depicting a starry night sky is a crystal sapphire etching representing the lunar surface, and a blue Earth on a disc that moves in tandem with the seconds hand on the flipside of the watch. Snoopy takes a ‘trip’ around the mysterious side of the moon when the chronograph seconds hand is in use.
EYES ON THE STARS”Eyes on the Stars”, the iconic quote, is included within the black universe background. The caseback features OMEGA’s NAIAD LOCK system which will ensure that these details stay in their correct position.
Showing OMEGA’s superb attention to detail, the watch’s blue nylon fabric strap matches the other blue elements of the watch. It even features the trajectory of the Apollo 13 mission embossed on the lining.
In a display of watchmaking skill, the Speedmaster “Silver Snoopy Award” 50th Anniversary watch is powered by the OMEGA Co-Axial Master Chronometer Calibre 3861.
This new model still maintains its classic steel case, but has a sprinkling of blue on its insignia markers as well as the bezel, and comes with a blue nylon strap with white contrast stitching.
However, seasoned Speedmaster collectors would be delighted to note that this timepiece comes with a Speedy Easter Egg. The tachymeter follows the classic 1960’s design, including the famous ‘Dot Over Ninety’, a common design of bezels between 1957 to 1970. Here, a white dot sits above the number ’90’ on its blue ceramic bezel ring.
The OMEGA Speedmaster “Silver Snoopy Award” 50th Anniversary watch includes a sterling silver dial adorned with blue PVD hour markers and hands. A small surprise appears in the blue sub-dial at 9 o’clock, where Snoopy is depicted to be wearing a spacesuit, reminiscent of the Silver Snoopy Award lapel pin.
For fans of OMEGA watches and Snoopy, you can thank your lucky stars because this unique timepiece will not be a limited production and also comes with OMEGA’s full 5-year warranty.
Eager fans will receive the watch in its own Apollo 13 presentation box, with a microfibre cleaning cloth, a brochure and a magnifying glass to help you get up close to the details.
