New Omega Speedmasters: Sneak Preview

New Omega Speedmasters: Sneak Preview

We love our Omega Speedmasters. The commemorative editions. The limited editions. The special dials. The commemorative, limited editions with special dials. Here are some forthcoming Omega Speedmasters. We don’t have any insight on when these will be released, so keep your eyes open and wrists ready.

A Speedmaster to mark the 1,000,000 cup of coffee sold in NASA’s vending machines, the Java Fuel Speedmaster.
One of the most precious Speedmasters, the
blue Snoopy Award. 
A Speedmaster to celebrate the 30th Anniversary of the 1989 Speedmaster Apollo XI Speedmaster which commemorated the 20th anniversary of Apollo XI, the Apollo XI Anniversary Anniversary Speedmaster.

A Speedmaster to mark the 10th Anniversary of the first couple to have sex in orbit, the Eros Speedmaster. Note: This watch may not be safe for work.

A Speedmaster to celebrate Neil Armstrong’s 100th birthday, which will be in 2030. This Speedmaster will be issued in 2020, so you can get yours ten years in advance. It will be reissued again in 2025 and 2030, but these second and third editions won’t be as collectable and valuable. The Armstrong Birthday Speedy will show a moonphase complication along with a dial dotted with candles in place of stars.

A Speedmaster for watch collectors who can’t decide which Speedmaster to get, the Schrodinger's Cat Speedmaster. This Speedmaster will feature a holographic dial that shows a cat at play or a cat that’s dead, depending on the angle at which you look at the watch.

A Speedmaster to mark the successful filming of the movie that made the world believe men walked on the moon, the David Blaine Speedmaster.

A Speedmaster that commemorates the installation of LED lighting at NASA HQ in 2009, the Bright Speedmaster.

A Speedmaster that celebrates the first successful unclogging of a space toilet, the Throne Speedmaster.

A Speedmaster to honor the first American in space, Alan B. Shepard, who didn’t wear a Speedmaster but would have if we had given him one, the Alan B. Shepard Speedmaster.

A Speedmaster to commemorate the first Speedmaster, limited to 5,005 units, the Limited Anniversary Speedmaster. The relief gold medallion at the 9 o’clock position shows the original Speedmaster.

The 2028 Sydney Summer Olympics Speedmaster may turn out to be the rarest Speedmaster if the summer Olympics are held in another city.



There are five Speedmasters for the
2020 Tokyo Olympics.
A Speedmaster to celebrate the first American woman in space, Sally Ride, with a 33 mm case. Finally, the Sally Ride Speedmaster. A gold relief medallion featuring Sally Ride’s portrait is on the watch’s nine o’clock spot.

A Speedmaster to commemorate Apollo 18. Yes, we know that officially there were just seventeen Apollo missions, but that’s only “officially.” Don’t you want to wear the most enigmatic, Stealth Speedmaster?

Literature has always played a part in moon lore and moon missions. We celebrate the famous poem, Hey diddle diddle, the cat and the fiddle, the cow jumped over the moon with this limited edition Bovine Speedmaster, which displays a cow on a gold medallion in the 9 o’clock position.

A Speedmaster to commemorate Kevin Bacon’s role in the movie Apollo 13, in which he timed the critical engine burn with his trusty Speedmaster, which enabled the crew (who included actor Tom Hanks), to return to Earth. More people know the movie actors’ names than the names of actual astronauts, so we made the Bacon Speedmaster.

Saving our most special, new Speedmaster for last: Celebrate the day Neil Armstrong got a speeding ticket for driving 90 miles per hour in a 50 mile an hour zone with the Speedy Speedy.
