THE 45TH ANNIVERSARY OF APOLLO 13

A tribute to the 45th anniversary of the legendary Apollo 13 mission and the Silver Snoopy Award that OMEGA received from the astronauts upon their safe return to Earth, this timepiece tells a story of the brand's role in space exploration and highlights NASA's connection to Snoopy and the rest of the Peanuts gang.

THE 45TH ANNIVERSARY OF APOLLO 13

CLASSIC BLACK AND WHITE

Reminiscent of the black and white comic strips printed in newspapers, the Speedmaster Apollo 13 Silver Snoopy Award features a white dial with black varnished hands, a white hand on the small seconds sub-dial, indexes with black varnished top cavities and a polished black ceramic bezel ring.

ENAMEL CASEBACK

This wristwatch features a caseback that is unlike any other. A 925 silver Snoopy medallion, mounted on a plate of the same material, is surrounded by alluring dark blue enamel. A silver powder is sprinkled on each individual caseback by hand, giving the impression that Snoopy is floating in space. The silver medallion resembles the pin - the Silver Snoopy Award - that was presented to OMEGA for its contribution to the success of the Apollo missions.

PRODUCTION PROCESS

Because each caseback is crafted in part by hand, no two pieces are exactly alike. We'd like to show you how the enamelled caseback, with its 925 silver medallion, is created.

SUPER-LUMINOVA SNOOPY

The white dial with its black elements is at once recognisable as the inverse of that of the Speedmaster Professional. The indexes are made of Super-LumiNova and have black varnished top cavities, as opposed to the Moonwatch’s indexes which have Super-LumiNova in the centre. A small Snoopy, created with a special Super-LumiNova paint, decorates the sub-dial at 9 o'clock. The Super-LumiNova tachymeter scale emits a green light.

14 SECONDS

A small inscription on the dial between zero and fourteen seconds asks: “What could you do in 14 seconds?” – a nod to the amount of time it took the Apollo 13 astronauts to perform one of the smaller mid-course corrections before re-entering Earth’s atmosphere. The frames at each second recall a classic comic strip.
