Model Spotlight: Omega Speedmaster Moonwatch

In the world of watches, there are several models that have become undisputed icons of horology. One such timepiece is the “Moonwatch.” Part of OMEGA’s Speedmaster collection, the Moonwatch has become legendary thanks to its storied history in America’s space program. Thanks to timeless design and world-class specs, it has become one of the best-selling chronographs of all time. Join us as we explore the many faces of the OMEGA Speedmaster Moonwatch!

The New Classic

In 2021, OMEGA updated the Moonwatch with the Caliber 3861 chronometer movement. Along with the new internals came a stepped dial, tapered bracelet, and a reshaped case. Available with either a historic Hesalite or modern sapphire crystal, the Moonwatch is stunning on bracelet, strap, or a NASA-branded Velcro strap that helps the “new” Moonwatch go above and beyond.

The Original Legend

Before last year’s 3861 update, the most recent version of the Moonwatch featured OMEGA’s tried and true Caliber 1861 movement. First appearing in the late 1960s, the movement became a favorite thanks to its reliability and durability.

Feldmar is proud to have a few factory-fresh samples of these 1861 variants in stock but act quick – once they’re gone, they’re gone.

Special Editions

Thanks to a design that lends itself to endless creativity, the Moonwatch has proven the perfect platform for special editions to commemorate people, places, and events. One of our favorites at Feldmar is this black and yellow Dark Side of the Moon. Saluting the Apollo 8 mission’s record-setting journey around the moon, the dial features an exacting render of the lunar surface as seen by NASA astronauts.


Bold Materials

Proving its versatility, OMEGA’s designers have used the Moonwatch to explore new, exciting case materials. One such success uses OMEGA’s proprietary material, an 18kt alloy known as Sedna Gold. With a bright, warm tone, the Sedna Moonwatch brings some extra sauce to the watch game! Available on a matching bracelet or black leather strap, either variant is an elevated experience that raises the Speedy Moonwatch up to serious grail status.
