Omega has been making waves within the watch industry with the announcement of their most recent endeavors — especially those honoring the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 lunar landing. Now, following the highly-anticipated resurrection of the company’s iconic Calibre 321 movement, the first new watch to receive the component has been revealed — a handsome, wrist-worn timekeeper known as the Speedmaster Moonwatch 321 Platinum.

The company’s obvious recognition of Apollo’s 50th anniversary isn’t just for show — subdials crafted with selections of moon meteorite, a 42mm platinum structure, and 18K white-gold hands and indexes have been implemented alongside the brand’s iconic 321 movement — which was first used in the OMEGA Speedmaster in 1957. A black ceramic bezel and white-enamel tachymeter scale add to the watch’s tasteful composition, giving buyers a stunning impression of its classic lineage. Although no details for pricing and availability have been revealed, Omega’s Speedmaster Moonwatch 321 Platinum is slated to hit shelves sometime in the winter of 2019.
