Steel on leather strap
Celebrating the 5th anniversary of #SpeedyTuesday, this makeover of the 1978 Speedmaster “Alaska Project III” is anti-reflective and easy-to-read with a matte-finish case and large radial numerals on the subdials.
The "reverse panda" style sets white opaline silvery subdials against a black dial, encircled with a black aluminium bezel ring. The applied vintage OMEGA logo is rhodium-plated, the hour markers coated with Super-LumiNova and all markings and subdials are coated with luminescent ink. There is a central OMEGA logo on the domed hesalite crystal.
The screw-in caseback is encircled by the words SPEEDY TUESDAY ANNIVERSARY - A TRIBUTE TO ALASKA PROJECT III as well as the Limited Edition number (X/2012). Circling the caseback is the word RADIAL. The watch has a vintage brown leather strap and is delivered in a special watch roll containing a spare NATO strap. It is powered by the OMEGA calibre 1861.
Complicated watch with a function for measuring short time periods in addition to its function for permanently displaying hours, minutes and seconds.
