This 50th-anniversary timepiece pays tribute to the “Silver Snoopy Award” that OMEGA received from NASA astronauts in 1970, in recognition of the brand’s contributions to space exploration, including the Apollo 13 mission.
The 42 mm case in stainless steel is presented on a blue nylon fabric strap, which features the trajectory of the Apollo 13 mission on the embossed lining. The silver dial has blue PVD angle-shaped hour markers and hands, as well as an embossed silver Snoopy medallion on the blue subdial at 9 o’clock.
On the NAIAD LOCK caseback, a vision of the far side of the moon has been decorated on the sapphire crystal using micro-structured metallisation. An animated Snoopy in his Command and Service Module (CSM) is shown on a magical hand, which rotates when the chronograph function is used. Behind, an Earth disc rotates once per minute in sync with the watch’s small seconds hand.
Along with black engravings on the caseback in tribute to Apollo 13 and OMEGA’s Silver Snoopy Award, there is also a blue ceramic [ZrO2] bezel ring with a white enamel tachymeter scale. The non-limited watch is driven by the OMEGA Co-Axial Master Chronometer Calibre 3861 and comes in a special presentation box.
Omega Speedmaster “Silver Snoopy Award” Key Features
The Silver Dial
The silver dial is laser-engraved with Ag925 and features our favorite beagle as an embossed silver medallion on the blue subdial at 9 o’clock. He is shown wearing his famous spacesuit, in the exact style of the famous Silver Snoopy Award pin.
Dot Over Ninety
The legendary tachymeter scale is shown in white enamel on a blue ceramic [ZrO2] bezel ring and includes a nod to Speedmaster history with a dot over ninety. The color theme continues on the silver dial with blue PVD angle-shaped hour markers and hands.
The NAIAD LOCK keeps all caseback engravings in the correct, upright position, including tributes to Apollo 13 and the Silver Snoopy Award. OMEGA received the prize seven months after the Speedmaster helped to rescue the Apollo 13 crew.
The watch’s blue nylon fabric strap matches the other blue elements of the watch and even features the trajectory of the Apollo 13 mission embossed on the lining. This includes their famous slingshot around the far side of the moon.
Snoopy In Orbit
On the caseback, Snoopy appears inside his Command and Service Module (CSM) on a magical hand. When the chronograph seconds hand is used, Snoopy takes a trip around the far side of the moon, which has been decorated on the sapphire crystal using a unique micro-structured metallisation. There is also an Earth disc, which rotates once per minute in sync with the watch’s small seconds hand.
