Omega’s ‘Moonwatch’ Gets Master Chronometer Certification
A huge upgrade for the iconic Moonwatch.
Omega’s storied Speedmaster ‘Moonwatch’ collection now boasts unparalleled anti-magnetic properties and precision rating, thanks to its new Master Chronometer certification.
Master Chronometers are a range of elite Omega timepieces that has survived the harshest quality control checks by both COSC (Official Swiss Chronometer Testing Institute) and METAS (Swiss Federal Institute of Metrology). Master Chronometers are among the world’s hardiest and most precise watches, with performance features that include magnetic resistance to 15,000 gauss and daily accuracy of 0/+5 seconds.
The new collection of the Speedmaster ‘Moonwatch’ is fitted with the Co-Axial Master Chronometer Calibre 3861. Boasting all of the above attributes, the hand-wound chronograph movement comes with silicon balance spring and 50-hour power reserve.
Aesthetically, the new-gen ‘Moonwatch’ is modelled after the ST 105.012 that was worn by Apollo 11 astronauts on the moon in 1969. Speedmaster fans will be familiar with features such as the classic Speedmaster case profile, double-bevelled caseback, and ‘dot-over-90’, as well as a dot diagonal to 70 on the aluminium bezel. These signature designs are complemented by subtle upgrades.
Beside fabric and leather straps, the watches come with the option of new satin-brushed five-link bracelets with polished Omega logo on the clasp to recall those found on vintage Moonwatches. Meantime, the redesigned minute track has been redesigned; segmented into three divisions as opposed to five on previous models. Available in stainless steel with Hesalite glass or sapphire crystal, 18K Sedna gold and 18K Canopus gold, the watches all come with a five-year warranty.
