Omega Introduces Speedmaster Moonwatch with a White Lacquer Dial

Glossy white, stainless steel, and regular production.

First seen on the wrist of actor Daniel Craig late last year, the Omega Speedmaster Moonwatch with a “lacquered white dial” is now official.

Dial aside, it’s identical to the standard Moonwatch with the cal. 3861. The new Speedmaster is regular production and priced almost exactly the same as the standard model.

Initial thoughts

The new Speedmaster is only a dial variant of the familiar Moonwatch in black. It isn’t substantively novel, though it is notable for being regular production. Historically, Speedmasters with white or silver dials have been either limited editions, like the Alaska Project, or in precious metal, like the model in Canopus gold.

The watch itself, however, is executed well. The lacquered dial is slightly glossy and matched with black-coated hands and markers, with the red “Speedmaster” giving it colour. For only US$100 more than the regular model – which is iconic but also common – this is certainly a compelling alternative.

White, red, and black

The new Speedmaster features a dial with a lacquered finish that gives it a smooth, glossy surface. According to Omega, this is the first Moonwatch with a lacquered dial.

Though the finish is different, the dial retains all of the details that characterise the Moonwatch dial, including the step on its perimeter and recessed registers with concentric graining.

The hands and applied markers also retain the same classic design, but are finished with a black coating for legibility. Notably, the standard model in steel has printed hour markers, with applied markers usually being found only on the solid-gold models.

The rest of the watch is identical to the conventional Moonwatch. The case is steel, while the crystal is sapphire and the bezel insert, aluminium.

Inside is the cal. 3861, the latest-generation Moonwatch movement. It’s a Co-Axial Master Chronometer calibre, meaning it incorporates the Daniels co-axial escapement and has passed METAS testing for timekeeping and function.

Like other versions of the Moonwatch, the new model is available on a steel bracelet as well as either a rubber strap or “racing” band in perforated leather.
