I do not like having the same watch as the others, even if there is a good reason to have these watches. I’m never afraid to suggest to people that getting an Omega Speedmaster is a good idea, but for me, I like to wear those that are not so common. In addition, I have a soft spot in my heart where the white dial sports watch – if you do not notice that there is not much in the Omega Speedmaster lunar table family.
Omega Speedmaster‘s success is not only because of history, but also because it is committed to become a tool table, the first “beautiful watch.” It’s not all functional and without style, but as a utilitarian object, fantastic work just happens to look sexy in the process. Reams wrote about why the Omega Speedmaster lunar table is a must for most modern watch enthusiasts and I will not seek to reaffirm the love and passion that has been communicating over the years in the Internet and in watch publications. What I can do is add your own thoughts and experiences with the Omega Speedmaster models.
Here are the names of the “Alaska Project” because Alaska is a lot colder. The watch is developed in an optional red aluminum case, designed to provide extra high and low temperature limit shielding for the watch (according to the story). According to Omega, the case “Shield” provides resistance to temperatures up to 260 degrees Celsius and down to -148 degrees Celsius. Aluminum clearly has a high heat retention, so it does not heat or cool very quickly. I think this is more important than its actual insulation. Red is also selected for specific reasons – associated with environmental radiation or sun protection.
Omega also offers a beautiful white and exquisite brand of white Velcro bracelet in addition to the standard steel Speedmaster bracelet with Omega Subaru Moonwatch Alaska item. I like this band, I never put the watch on the bracelet (also)! This strap even has two sizes, with extra straps, making it more comfortable to wear with an aluminum shell. Omega’s efforts to design the presentation for the limited edition Omega Speedmaster Moonwatch Alaska project are commendable.
One interesting trivia is that from 1970 onwards, the original Omega Speedmaster Lunar Alaska project was a white dial-up Speedmaster. This is a serious and expensive project that Omega is using to not only continue to participate in NASA space missions, but also improve the design and performance of Subaru. Omega produced only five prototypes, they are the first watch case, a solid titanium shell ever produced. One of the five watches at the Omega Museum in Switzerland, here is a photo.
Omega continues to produce the core Speedmater lunar watch with caliber 1861 hand-wound chronograph movement. NASA (at that time) wanted manual winding motion because they feared that the automatic rotor in a zero gravity environment would not really do anything. Later found that this fear is unfounded, in the space to move the wrist’s kinetic energy enough to keep the watch winding through the automatic rotor. I do not know when this was proven, but when Seiko put its Spring Drive Spacewalk watch in space around 2008 – ironically, at the same time, the limited edition Omega Subaru Moon Alaska project was released the same year.
