The glitz and glamour of space exploration may have been lost in today’s generation. Budget cuts and the worldwide economic downturn may have spelled the end of lunar exploration. But it doesn’t mean that we can’t keep looking up to the Moon for inspiration. Updating a classic is always tricky, but Omega makes it look easy. It was 1969 when man first conquered the Earth’s lone natural satellite. That was the same year when Omega released the Speedmaster Mark II. This year marks the return of this particular model. Being a modern watch, the movement is updated with this model, with a Co-Axial calibre 3330. The self-winding automatic movement has a Si14 silicon balance spring and a column-wheel chronograph mechanism. Coming in a barrel-shaped case made of brushed and polished stainless steel, the Speedmaster Mark II Chronograph’s look didn’t veer too far away from the original. It still has the classic three subdial format with a prominent date window by the six o’clock position. The tachymetric scale is very visible, even in the lowest of light thanks to Super Luminova coating. Adjusting the date is easier as well, thanks to a tool accompanying the watch that fits in a slot on the case by the 10 o’clock position. $TBD.
