Introducing The Omega Speedmaster ‘Silver Snoopy Award’ 50th Anniversary
Over the previous week, there were murmurs that Omega planned to deliver another Speedmaster. Indeed, as the murmurs go to shouts, we at last understand what that watch is – the new Omega Speedmaster “Silver Snoopy Award” 50th Anniversary. Like the two restricted versions that went before it, this watch honors NASA having introduced the Silver Snoopy Award to Omega following the best, fruitless mission ever: Apollo 13 (for additional on that, look at Jack’s In-Depth ). This new delivery commemorates the 50th commemoration of that very honor – introduced on October 5, 1970 – and kid does this watch know how to celebrate.
The new 50th commemoration model is introduced in the exemplary Speedmaster steel 42mm case, however with blue accents on the bezel, hands, markers, and Omega badge – even the lash is blue. Gracious, and obviously it includes the notorious Snoopy delineation in the little seconds sub-dial. The watch additionally includes a designed caseback, which I will get into momentarily. I would be delinquent also potentially the most intriguing goody about this delivery, which is that – in contrast to past Silver Snoopy models – this is not a restricted release. Indeed, you read that correctly.
The last Silver Snoopy LE was delivered in 2015 and highlighted a distinct white dial, with a glowing snoopy in his mark “resting on top of the doghouse” position, with an idea bubble repeating the celebrated line from the 1995 film, Apollo 13, “Disappointment isn’t an alternative!” More than that, it contained content perusing “What could you do in 14 seconds?” referring to the 14-second terminating of the lunar module’s rocket motor to get the Apollo 13 space travelers home – planned with an Omega Speedmaster.
That model and the 2003 LE (including the more upbeat, spacesuit-clad Snoopy) have become most alluring on the auxiliary market, getting some beautiful wild costs. This new 50th commemoration piece is entirely suggestive of the first Silver Snoopy regarding the arrangement of snoopy and delineation utilized. You likewise may see a similarity to the famous Blue Speedy (which you can find in Wei Koh’s Collection in his scene of Talking Watches alongside a white-dial Silver Snoopy), in light of the fact that – well – it is additionally blue. Take a gander at this watch, and you will likewise see a Speedy Easter egg as the “speck over ninety.”
The dial of this watch is silver and laser-engraved with Ag925. It incorporates three more blue sub-dials – the sub-dial at nine o’clock highlighting Snoopy showing up as an embellished silver emblem with the words “50th Anniversary” showing up overhead. This is the most immediate reverence the watch offers, as Snoopy is introduced in the specific style of the silver pin that NASA space explorers present to grant beneficiaries. The watch additionally includes blue PVD hour markers and hands. The caeback, be that as it may, is something completely new and completely cool. It includes a liveliness of the moon, the earth, and Snoopy himself within a white Command and Service Module (CSM). As this is no conventional caseback, there is some sorcery included.
Omega has made what they are calling a “sorcery hand,” which permits Snoopy’s CSM to move. At the point when the chronograph work is started, Snoopy and his boat travel around the furthest side of the moon – a praise to the excursion taken by the Apollo 13 team. The Earth plate pivots once each moment, couple with the watch’s little seconds hand to represent – straightforwardly – the revolution of the Earth. There is likewise the statement, “Eyes on the Stars,” remembered for the back.
The watch is controlled by the METAS-confirmed OMEGA Co-Axial Master Chronometer Caliber 3861 and highlights a blue artistic [ZrO2] bezel ring. Much the same as the previous Silver Snoopy, this watch comes fitted to a nylon texture lash, just this time in blue with white sewing. It has been a long time since NASA gave Omega the Silver Snoopy Award, and this delivery isn’t only a fitting recognition, yet is pretty much as energetic as the symbol which addresses the honor itself.
