Omega Speedmaster "Silver Snoopy Award" 50th Anniversary Watch 310.32.42.50.02.001
This very special OMEGA Speedmaster honours the 50th anniversary of OMEGA receiving the prestigious Silver Snoopy Award from NASA astronauts in 1970.
The famous beagle represented total mission success and during the Apollo 13 mission of 1970, the flight team called upon the crucial precision of their OMEGA Speedmaster Chronographs to splash safely back to earth. In turn OMEGA were awarded the unique sterling silver pin of Snoopy in a spacesuit and wearing his famous Flying Ace scarf.
Sized at 42 mm, the case of the OMEGA Speedmaster "Silver Snoopy" is crafted from stainless steel and features a blue ceramic [ZrO2] bezel ring with white enamel tachymeter scale. The silver dial has blue PVD angle-shaped hour markers and hands, and of course features the famous beagle Snoopy in an embossed silver medallion on the blue subdial at 9 o’clock.
As with the unique dial detailing, the blue nylon fabric strap on which the timepiece is presented, has been specially created to signify the honour of which it represents. The exclusive strap features an special embossed lining with the trajectory of the Apollo 13 mission.
On the NAIAD LOCK caseback, the sapphire crystal has been decorated using unique micro-structured metallisation to create a vision of the far side of the moon. When the chronograph seconds hand is in use, Snoopy takes a trip around the dark side of the moon in his animated black and white Command and Service Module (CSM). Behind, an Earth disc rotates once per minute in sync with the watch’s small seconds hand.
This non-limited OMEGA watch comes in a special presentation box and is driven by the OMEGA Co-Axial Master Chronometer Calibre 3861, that has a power reserve of up to 50 hours.
