This Omega Speedmaster Moonwatch “Hodinkee” 10th Anniversary Ref:318.104.22.168.06.001 is new unworn. Limited Edition of 500 pieces. It comes with tool, strap, box and warranty card dated in December 2018.
When the OMEGA Speedmaster “Day-Date” was created in 1996, it featured a dial design and colour coding that has made a lasting impression on watch fans ever since. This new 39.70 Limited Edition is a tribute to that unique Speedmaster and reimagines the same classic look.
The watch has been launched in partnership with the leading watch magazine and tastemaker HODINKEE, which is celebrating its 10th anniversary in 2018. Speedmaster fans will notice that this is not an exact re-creation. While the “triple calendar” complication is no longer featured, there are many other familiar touches that recall the original design.
The grey/blue dial includes a distinctive minute track as well as luminous Arabic numerals. Instead of the original day/night indicator, the black and blue subdial at 9 o’clock has now been transformed into a useful function indicator with a propeller-shaped hand.
The central seconds hand is varnished red and includes a yellow aeroplane tip – a recognisable feature from the “Day-Date” model that has been seen on several Speedmaster designs since the 1970s.
Limited to 500 pieces, the watch is presented on a grey/blue leather strap, with a stainless steel case that includes a black aluminium bezel. On the caseback, OMEGA has embossed its Seahorse medallion and added a number of engravings, including “HODINKEE” and “10th Anniversary.” Inside, the watch is driven by the legendary OMEGA Calibre 1861.
