OMEGA'S WHITE HORSE
White dials have generally been limited to special edition white gold Speedmasters. This configuration was only reserved for a handful of anniversary pieces and special projects, among which includes the Silver Snoopy Anniversary issue.
TIME IN SPACE
Powered by the caliber 1861, it is a modern update of the caliber 861 which itself was based on the original caliber 321 that went to the moon. The movement has a rhodium-plated finish, making it no less different than the robust movement that kept time ticking outside of earth.
The theme for the moon watch carries over from functional to aesthetic, down to the smallest of details, namely the broad baton hands in the subregisters that resemble little NASA rockets.
The watch comes dressed in a matching white fabric strap, but also comes in a full stainless steel bracelet.
