On October 5th, 1970, NASA presented its Silver Snoopy Award to Omega due to the brand’s significant contributions to space exploration and rescue role in Apollo 13 mission.
One of the oxygen tanks of the ship exploded during the mission that destroyed the ship’s systems. So the astronauts used their NASA-certified Omega Speedmaster watches to set a vital 14-second rocket burn time. This brought back the entry flight path angle within safer limits.
When Omega received the Silver Snoopy Award in 1970, it was indeed a proud achievement in the brand’s long and fascinating history. Thus, Omega has declared the new Speedmaster “Silver Snoopy Award” 50th Anniversary Edition for celebrating that occasion.
However, it is not the brand’s first Snoopy Speedmaster version. But many watch enthusiasts are professing it to the most fascinating and best edition to date. So let’s explore the new Omega Speedmaster “Silver Snoopy Award” 50th Anniversary non-limited edition, featuring a vibrant blue and silver colour profile.
The Omega Speedmaster “Silver Snoopy Award” 50th Anniversary edition is significantly different from the classic Omega Moonwatch. Indeed, the new watch retains the stainless steel of 42mm, integrated crown-guards and twisted lugs like the standard Moonwatch. However, all other features in the new Snoopy Speedy 50th anniversary timepiece are entirely different.
Omega has offered the Snoopy cartoon in different styles on earlier Snoopy Speedy editions. However, the comic appears differently on the new 50th Anniversary Snoopy Speedmaster.
The watchmaker designed the cartoon in a precisely similar style like the silver pin that astronauts of NASA present the prestigious award’s recipients.
What completes and boosts the overall appeal of the new Snoopy Speedmaster is its matching blue nylon strap.
However, Omega even offered a delicate, subtle detail on the strap. Its inner lining is etched with the Apollo 13 mission’s flight route, recollecting the life-saving role of the Speedmaster during the mission half-century ago.
The new Omega “Silver Snoopy Award” Speedmaster houses the brand’s patented Calibre 3861 movement. You can consider this Co-Axial Master Chronometer movement as an upgraded version of the Calibre 1861 powering the classic Moonwatch.
In a word, the vibrant blue and silver colour profile of the new 50th Anniversary Snoopy Speedmaster is simply “stunning”. The watch undoubtedly comes with many unique features.
However, what makes the watch a truly treasured piece is its animated case-back.
Omega has not fitted the watch with the standard sapphire transparent case-back or a unique Snoopy-themed carving.
However, the term “animated” maybe a little bit confusing. But it is the best word to delineate the case-back of the new Silver Snoopy Speedmaster.
The fact is that the case-back indeed features many moving elements.
The lunar surface decorated under the crystal along with the night sky makes it look like the moon is floating.
Additionally, there is enough space for animated elements to move.
A hidden hand gets activated as soon as the timepiece starts. Interestingly, the invisible hand’s tip is set with a cartoon of Snoopy riding a rocket.
So when the chronograph runs, the cartoon appears from the rear side of the moon. After 14seconds, Snoopy will be seen floating over the Earth disc and disappears again at the back of the embossed lunar surface.
The brand has equipped this 50th Anniversary Snoopy Speedmaster with its patented NAIAD LOCK system. It ensures that the engravings on the case-back will always be in their correct position.
The new Omega Speedmaster “Silver Snoopy Award” 50th Anniversary Edition will be available at Omega boutiques and stores from the end of October 2020 with a retail price of about £7,416.

Omega has introduced the new elevated Seamaster 007-themed watch. This latest James Bond edition Seamaster incorporates cutting-edge design details and the everlasting lure of the fictional British Secret Service agent.
However, Omega’s association with James Bond dates back to 1995 since the introduction of “GoldenEye”. And the brand unleashed the new Seamaster Diver 300M James Bond Numbered Edition in platinum-gold to commemorate its enduring relationship with the iconic spy series.
Interestingly, the new 007-themed Seamaster watch is serving as a special treat for Omega enthusiasts and also movie addicts who are eagerly waiting for the latest James Bond movie “No Time to Die”.
Thus, let’s today delve into the new Platinum-Gold James Bond Edition of the Omega Seamaster Diver 300M.
Omega unveiled a Seamaster Diver 300M watch in titanium earlier this year. And this virtually commercial version of the watch will accompany James Bond in the highly-anticipated movie “No Time to Die”.
However, the brand designed the new Seamaster James Bond Edition in platinum-gold to pay homage to the iconic spy film and especially, the 1969’s movie “On Her Majesty’s Secret Service”.
Omega lovers are well-familiar to the brand’s proclivity of creating commemorative timepieces. However, here is an exciting fact to note:
The actor George Lazenby had not worn any Omega watches while portraying James Bond in the movie “On Her Majesty’s Secret Service” of 1969. In fact, two different Rolex watches featured in the film.
If you look at the new Seamaster James Bond Edition from a design point of view, it may not seem like anything novel.
In 2019, the brand launched the 50th Anniversary “On Her Majesty’s Secret Service” Edition of the Seamaster Diver 300M.
Moreover, they flaunt the same secret number “50” in the 10 o’clock hour marker’s SuperLumiNova.
Omega furnished the new Seamaster in Platinum-Gold with a small “007” logo at the 7 o’clock side.
On the contrary, the last year’s anniversary edition watch is powered by the Calibre 8800 in-house movement and has a time-and-date layout.
However, the Co-Axial Master Chronometer Calibre 8807 is visible via the watch’s case-back.
The new Omega Seamaster Diver 300M James Bond Numbered Edition features a black dial.
However, the new one features the diving scale on the bezel in platinum; whereas, the last year’s rendering flaunts a white enamel diving scale.
Omega equips the new Seamaster Diver 300M James Bond Numbered Edition with a matching leather strap. Moreover, the strap is further accented by platinum stitching.
What is more exciting to see is the “GlobeTrotter” suitcase that accompanies the timepiece. It includes an added black rubber strap.
Lastly, the new Seamaster James Bond watch in platinum-gold will be a numbered edition. It is unlike the last year’s 50th Anniversary Seamaster Diver model that was limited to only 7,007 pieces all over the world.
However, the newest model will feature a small plate on the case side with the engraving of an individual number of each timepiece.
