OMEGA puts its foot down with release of the Speedmaster timepiece

Swiss watchmaker, OMEGA, is offering online sales of a new timepiece via its Instagram channel, using the hashtag ‘#SpeedyTuesday’.

The new addition is OMEGA’s Speedmaster Limited Edition 42 mm Ultraman which is a tribute to a character in the Japanese Ultraman series.

The Speedmaster Ultraman shares its DNA with OMEGA’s 1967 Moonwatch embracing the same dimensions and shade of orange as the classic model.

On the seconds subdial at 9 o’clock, there’s a hidden silhouette of Ultraman’s profile which is revealed by a special tool available with the watch. The strap changer, identical to Ultraman’s Beta Capsule, features a UV lamp at one end, which when shined on the dial, reveals the image.

A vintage OMEGA logo on the dial adds a retro touch and the caseback features an engraving of #SpeedyTuesday.

The watch is presented with a black and orange NATO strap in its own hexagonal box and is limited to 2,012 pieces.
