Omega Speedmaster Ultraman Watch

Omega’s 1967 Moonwatch appeared in the Japanese TV show Return of Ultraman as part of a monster-fighting kit, and it’s been sought after by serious watch collectors ever since. Today, Omega is bringing back that popular chronograph in the form of an exclusive Speedy Tuesday model.

This Speedster has the same shape and shade of orange as the original, but this time there is a new black stripe on the seconds hand that mirrors the suits of the TV show’s Monster Attack Team. In the show, Ultraman was only able to fight in superhero-mode for three minutes, so the first three minutes of the 3 o’clock sundial are highlighted in orange. Looking at the 9 o’clock subdial, you’ll see the silhouette of Ultraman himself, which can be illuminated with the UV light at the end of the strap changer. For a classic touch, there’s a vintage Omega logo on the dial and also a dot over 90, paying tribute to other classic Speedster models. Along with those retro touches, this quality chronograph has a 42mm stainless steel case, hesalite crystal, an anodized aluminum bezel and a NATO strap. Powered by the Omega Calibre 1861, an iconic movement with space credentials, this timepiece is as functional as it is fashionable. As a cherry on top, the caseback features some neat engraving, including the words “The First Watch Worn On The Moon.” It comes in a hexagonal box, which is a tribute to the futuristic table in the show, and is limited to 2,012 pieces.

Purchase: $7,100
