Introduction

Famed as the watch that was first worn on the moon during the Apollo moon landings, the Omega Speedmaster has long been known as one of watchmaking's most iconic timepieces. However, while its claim to fame is legendary, it was not originally conceived as a watch for space. Instead, it was a watch designed for race car drivers, hence its name. Launched in the 1990s as a luxurious take on a design historically created as tool watch, the Speedmaster Date ref. 3611.20 sports an 18kt yellow gold case with a striking blue dial that features case-matching golden hour markers, hands, and inscriptions. Sitting on its leather strap, this timepiece is an elegant execution of one of horology’s best-known tool watches, with its hefty construction bringing an air of exclusivity and luxury to the wrist of its owner in a manner that stainless steel could never compete with.

Our Perspective

Taking the Speedmaster's historical tool-watch design into the world of luxury, this variant's striking blue dial and abundance of hefty 18kt gold enable it to explore a luxury-first approach to horology and timekeeping.
