Steel Meets Gold in Omega’s Latest Speedmaster Professional Moonwatches

Omega has once again captured the essence of sophistication and performance with the introduction of its new two-tone Speedmaster Professional Moonwatch models. Unveiled by acclaimed actor Barry Keoghan, who has recently joined the brand’s circle of friends, these timepieces combine the iconic legacy of the Speedmaster with a contemporary twist in a magnificent color scheme.

This year, we haven’t seen many bicolor watches yet. Omega changes the game with two new iterations of the Speedmaster that join the permanent collection. The combination of robust stainless steel and luxurious gold creates a stunning visual contrast and shines a new light on the iconic design that has made the Speedmaster one of the most sought-after chronographs and watches of all times.

It goes without saying that Omega uses its two genuine gold alloys. Moonshine Gold, an 18K yellow gold alloy including including silver, copper and palladium was unveiled in 2019, while Sedna Gold, an 18k rose gold alloy including copper and palladium, made its first entrance in 2012. With a diameter of 42mm and a height of 13.2mm the asymmetrical cases are water-resistant t0 50 meters.

Both “step” dials have their own personality: One has a sunray brushed silver dial with Moonshine Gold sub-dials, while the other shines with a Sedna Gold PVD treatment and black sub-dials. Both are framed by a black ceramic bezel with a tachymeter scale and the famous “dot over ninety” in Omega’s Ceragold.

The watches are driven by the legendary caliber 3861 with a 50-hour power reserve. This manual-winding chronograph movement with Co-Axial escapement is a certified Master Chronometer. Approved by METAS, it is resistant to magnetic fields reaching 15,000 gauss and equipped with a free-sprung balance with silicon balance spring. Its rhodium-plated finish and bridges with straight Geneva Waves can be admired through the exhibition case back.

The new Omega Speedmaster Professional Moonwatches come on a two-tone bracelet with a micro-adjustable folding clasp and retail for $18,100. They can also be combined with leather or fabric straps.
