A year after Omega unveiled a modern reworking of its historic Calibre 321 and six months after it was first used in a commercial model — a Moonwatch in platinum — the company is taking the movement mainstream by releasing a steel version of the watch.

The design has been inspired by a 1965 Speedmaster ST 105.003 worn by astronaut Edward White when he became the first American to walk in space.

It comes in a 39.7mm case with a black ceramic bezel with its tachymeter scale in white enamel. The modern 321 movement can be seen through a sapphire case back.

The black dial adopts familiar Moonwatch hands, small seconds sub-dial, 30-minute recorder, 12-hour recorder, and central chronograph hand.

Omega says the watch will be on sale at the end of March. UK price is £11,300 but we are waiting for the price in the USA.
