Omega Speedmaster Moonwatch Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games Collection
The hottest new Speedmaster Moonwatch Limited Edition watches so far.
I can't speak Japanese, but I'm expert enough about Omega watches to affirm that this Speedmaster Moonwatch Limited Edition, created to celebrate the next Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games, is the first case ever where the brand created an entire collection that is dedicated exclusively to a single market. The five new Omega Speedmaster Moonwatch watches you can see on here will be sold solely in the Land of the Rising Sun. First things first: Darren, aka Vintage Speedmaster on Instagram, was the first to note this limited series watches that follow the recent launch of the Speedy Tuesday Ultraman and, perhaps, were already present on the Japanese version of the Omega website.
The buzz generated by Darren's post was such that all the Speedmaster Moonwatch die-hard fans got soon crazy , given some details that some of these new limited editions feature since they mimic some of the most prestigious and highly sought-after Omega Limited Edition Moonwatch. In particular, three of them resemble the Omega Speedmaster Professional Gemini 4 40th Anniversary, the Omega Speedmaster Professional Moonwatch Mitsukoshi Dial and the Omega Speedmaster Apollo 15 Limited edition 35th Anniversary respectively. The other two ones replicate the colors (bezel and dial) that Omega introduced two years ago when it launched the Speedmaster Moonwatch Moon phase (green bezel or red bezel coupled with steel-gold and platinum respectively).
What seems clear from the pictures released on Omegawatches.jp is that each of these editions will be made in just 2020 specimen and that Omega has also launched a box containing all the five timepieces (only 55 boxes will be ever made). The caliber hosted inside the 42mm case is familiar and is the well known 1861 caliber. More information is available on omegawatches.jp, and additional ones will come as soon as we get more updates from the translation to Italian that is underway. Stay tuned!
