OMEGA Speedmaster Calibre 321 is back in Steel on Steel


When I first time started to learn more about the OMEGA Speedmaster with Calibre 321, I was amazed by the quality of the movement and the details. There is a fantastic blog post at Fratello watches about the different variations. 

I started to look for the original vintage models, however, to find the right example to buy. It’s very challenging. 

Fortunately, OMEGA is planning to start selling the stainless version again in early 2020. Yes, the watch many of my friends were waiting for is finally here. 

The famous black dial recreated the dept be slightly lowering the dials of the seconds, hours, and minutes recorders.

Just the dial looks impressive, and I hope that the price point will be something everyone can afford because this is an iconic timepiece.

The bezel has its signature dot over 90, and it would be interesting if OMEGA misprints the bezel again with the 220. I would not mind if they did it on purpose and make it a limited run. Why not, because OMEGA is known for having many limited editions every single year.

One of the reasons many of us love the 321 movements is its history. The Calibre 321 that was worn on the moon and it’s reliable and ran excellent in very challenging conditions 

The manual wind is so smooth and keeps charge up to 55 hours, which is more than enough for many of us. Not needing to find the watch every single day but every other day is a huge plus.

Another significant fact about this watch is the transparent case back. I love the details of the movement and the way how clean it looks. OMEGA knows how to make amazing timepieces.

Every single time, I get the open case back watches made by OMEGA, I can stare at the movements for a long time. There is something very captivating about the precision as well as the details of the movement.

The stainless steel bracelet looks very comfortable. It seems like it the same one as the Apollo 11 50th anniversary. I had the opportunity to wear that bracelet and its one of the most comfortable stainless steel bracelet OMEGA makes hands down.
