In 1970, OMEGA was recognized for its unique contribution to space exploration by NASA astronauts, who presented the brand the coveted “Silver Snoopy Award,” which recognized the brand’s Speedmaster’s crucial assistance during the Apollo 11 rescue.
On this 50th anniversary, a specially designed timepiece has been crafted. This amazing OMEGA Speedmaster tribute combines animation and watchmaking art in a new way. As an embossed silver medallion on the 9 o’clock blue subdial, our beloved beagle plays a prominent role within the timepiece.
The spacesuit is shown here along with the exact style of the silver pin that NASA astronauts give as awards. Silver dials with Ag925 laser-engraving are also available. Blue PVD angle-shaped hour markers and hands are featured as well as two more blue subdials.
Upon receiving the case back, the real fun begins! The animated Command and Service Module (CSM) on a magical hand has launched Snoopy into orbit, thanks to his black and white Command and Service Module (CSM). Snoopy appears to travel to the far side of the moon with the chronograph seconds hand, with the lunar surface engraved into sapphire crystal in a unique micro-structured metallization.
Our home is visible in the distance. A disc representing the Earth rotates once per minute, matching the hand’s speed, and symbolizes Earth’s precise rotation. Several iconic quotes are featured in the black universe, including “Eyes on the Stars”. In addition to the Silver Snoopy Award held by Omega in 1970, and a tribute to the American Apollo 13 mission that same year, the NAIAD LOCK includes the date in the correct upright position.
There is no limit to the number of timepieces produced, and OMEGA offers a full 5-year warranty. A collector’s watch comes in its own Apollo 13 presentation box, complete with a microfiber cleaning cloth, a brochure, and a magnifying glass so you can see details up close.
