The Stellar Moonwatch Has Just Been Master Chronometer Certified


Raynald Aeschlimann, President and CEO of OMEGA, comments, “When updating a sacred timepiece like the Speedmaster Moonwatch, every detail must be true to its original spirit. This chronograph is recognised the world over, so we’ve approached its design with the most sincere respect, while taking its movement to the next level.”

The Swiss watchmaker has been inspired by the 4th generation Moonwatch style, commonly referenced as the ST 105.012, and worn by Apollo 11 astronauts on the moon in 1969. These space-era tributes include the classic asymmetrical case, the step dial, the double bevel caseback, and the famous dot over 90 (DON) and a dot diagonal to 70 on the anodised aluminium bezel ring.

These tiny but essential details tell the Speedmaster story.

Perhaps the most significant revision comes with the arrival of the Co-Axial Master Chronometer Calibre 3861. The new movement ensures that the Moonwatch will weather even the most extreme magnetic fields reaching 15,000 gauss. Moreover, it ensures that the watch — in its entirety — is certified as a Master Chronometer. This is the highest standard of precision, performance and magnetic-resistance in the Swiss watch industry.
