Omega updates the iconic Moonwatch with caliber 3861 (and other improvements).

The Omega Speedmaster Moonwatch is an icon like few other watches. It is loved and admired across the globe - and having made its way to the moon, one could even say beyond it. But how do you update a timeless classic, whose design has remained virtually unchanged for decades? By tweaking the details and updating the internals. Enter the new generation of the Omega Speedmaster Professional Moonwatch, now powered by caliber 3861!

The 2020 Omega Speedmaster Professional Moonwatch comes, for the time being, in four variations. There's the classic hesalite (plexi) with closed case back or a so-called Sapphire Sandwich, both of which are available either on a strap or stainless steel bracelet. All are powered. by the METAS-certifed caliber 3861. This movement, first seen in the 2019 Apollo 11 50th anniversary watches, offers a Si14 balance spring, superior resistance to magnetic fields, and a 3-level co-axial escapement. The black varnished dial has the classic Speedy Pro look, though now once again with a more pronounced step towards the minute track. One might note that the logo is painted on the hesalite version, and applied on the Sapphire Sandwich. The tachymeter inlay remains aluminum, though in the Dot-Over-Ninety (DON) style.

The Omega Speedmaster Professional Moonwatch caliber 3861 is available for [pre-] order in our eBoutique via the links below. Ace Jewelers is authorized dealer for Omega. Full techncial specifications of both the hesalite as well as the Sapphire Sandwich further down below.
