About the model
The Omega Speedmaster, born in 1957, is one of the most iconic wristwatches ever produced. Since 1965, it has been the choice of space programs for over half a century and has been associated with some of mankind’s greatest space adventures, earning it the name The Moonwatch.
Naturally, beyond its professional use for more than sixty years, the Speedmaster, with its incredible history and its timeless design, has appealed to a much wider public throughout the world.
The very first white dials on Speedmasters seem to date from the 1980s. There are 3 different variants actually, which differ mainly by the presence of the “Professional” mention or not, and of Ts flanking “SWISS MADE” or not. They all have golden indexes. The only clues we have about their origin come from OMEGA: these white dials could have been made on the initiative of the German distributor to meet the wishes of some of his clients.
Very very few of these special models have been observed (less than 10).
