The New Steel-and-Gold Omega Speedmaster Professional Moonwatch models

Following the white dial variant, Omega expands its Speedmaster Moonwatch collection with steel-Moonshine and steel-Sedna models.

While mostly known as a stainless steel watch, the Omega Speedmaster Professional Moonwatch has been seen in multiple precious metals over the years, including recent Moonshine, Canopus or Sedna gold alloys. With two-tone watches somehow making a comeback in the past few years, it’s without much surprise that Omega releases today a new duo of bicolor, steel-and-gold Speedmaster Moonwatch models, using the brand’s proprietary Sedna (pink) and Moonshine (yellow) alloys next to classic steel, as well as several gold-toned accents on the dial.

Technically speaking, nothing new to report. We’re here looking at classic Speedmaster Professional Moonwatch models. If you want to know everything there’s to know about the current generation Moonwatch, we invite you to take a closer look at this 2021 extended review here or look at the recent white dial version. In a nutshell, these new two-tone models rely on the updated version of this iconic model with a 42mm asymmetrical case, with a so-called sapphire sandwich construction and inside the in-house, Master Chronometer-certified and co-axial-equipped calibre 3861.

What’s new then? Well, the steel-and-gold Speedmaster Professional Moonwatch makes a return in the collection, using the basic recipe that was first introduced in 1983, with the first two-tone Speedy reference 145.0022; steel-and-gold bracelet; crown, pushers and external bezel in gold; two-tone dials with gold accents. Compared to the past, there’s been some evolution though, with new colour schemes and new, proprietary alloys used. Also, both use ceramic bezel inserts, with the tachymeter scale made using Ceragold technology.

The first of these two bicolor Omega Speedmaster Professional Moonwatch (reference 310.20.42.50.02.001) combines steel with Moonshine yellow gold on the bracelet and case. Its dial is stepped, and the base is silvery-white with a sunray-brushed surface, paired with galvanic Moonshine gold-toned counters. All applied markers, the Ω logo and the hands are all done in Moonshine gold too, with black printings all around.

The second steel-and-gold Speedmaster model (reference 310.20.42.50.99.001) is slightly more polarizing, with its combination of steel and Sedna pink gold for the case and some elements of the case. For this one, the brushed dial is Sedna gold PVD coated, paired with black sub-counters. The latter have gold-coloured scales, the rest of the printings being black. All hands, markers and the Ω logo are made from Sedna gold too.

Both new Omega Speedmaster Professional Moonwatch steel-and-gold come on the classic Nixon-style bracelet with micro-adjustable folding clasp. Available now from boutiques and retailers and part of the permanent collection, these new models retail for CHF 17,200 (incl. VAT), EUR 19,900 (incl. VAT) or USD 18,100 (excl. VAT).

  1. Love the pink gold / steel version! Salmon-coloured dials on Speedmasters are exceptionally rare and it is nice that one doesn’t have to go neo-vintage to obtain such dial variations. Wish this watch to become an Instagram favourite #salmondial #salmondialwatch #salmondialwatches
