The watches are limited to 2020 pieces each and can be bought in a set of all 5. This set will be limited to 55 pieces. As you can see, three of the five watches are in stainless steel and the other two have a bit of gold added to them. In our opinion, it was about time that bi-colour returned to the Moonwatch. The last time was with the Apollo 15 35th Anniversary edition that came out in gold and steel, 1971 pieces only (in 2006). It is clear that Omega took the inspiration for these 5 limited edition models for the Olympic Games in 2020 from existing (or discontinued models). The aforementioned Apollo 15 35th anniversary edition is one of them, but what to think of the Mitsukoshi/Apollo 11 (2004) edition with the Panda dial, or the blue and white dial version that looks like the Gemini IV limited edition from 2005? The red bezel version and the green bezel version seem to be based on the recently released Master Chronometer Moonphase models. Perhaps these can be seen as the most original two versions of the pack. The green bezel Speedmaster uses 18-carat Sedna gold where the black bezel Speedmaster has 18-carat yellow gold for its pushers, crown and bezel. The hands, hour markers and sub-counter rings are also made of gold on both watches.

All five watches have ‘Speedmaster’ printed in red on the dial. The engraved case back is also the same for all watches, except for those thatcome in the set of 55 pieces only. Also, these watches have the same specifications as the regular Moonwatch, so a 42mm case with the hand-wound Lemania based calibre 1861 movement.

As you probably know, in 2020 the Olympic Games will take place in Japan and of course Omega will be the official timekeeper. In celebratio of the 2 year countdown towards these games, Omega introduced a special collection of Speedmaster. They’re inspired by the colours of the iconic Olympic Rings, similar to the set of 5 Seamasters for the 2018 Winter Games.
