The Omega Speedmaster Moonwatch Ed White 321 Calibre 3188.8.131.52.01.001
We are excited to announce the next edition of the Omega Speedmaster Moonwatch with same 321 Calibre as the original 1957 Speedmaster. The ‘Ed White’ Edition. This watch lives up to its predecessors with several improvements. Omega’s new reference 3184.108.40.206.01.001, feature a partial Sedna gold movement, sapphire crystal exhibition back, sapphire crystal font, and a ceramic Bezel. The modern touches provide just the right amount of updating to make this one of the best launches of 2020.
Collectors of true quality watches have long understood what makes the Omega Speedmaster Moonwatch so iconic. In fact, it's right there in the name. It is quite fantastically, the official watch of the moon. The original 321 caliber was produced in 1913.
A lot of collectors are familiar with the Moonwatch's history with NASA--It's early testing and it's durability. Not as many people are familiar with its place in early racing. It's well known that this miraculous timepiece has played a pivotal role in 6 lunar missions, but it was also widely trusted on the early race tracks for the same reason that it was trusted by NASA. The Speedmaster Moonwatch, with the 321 Calibre, is reliable under the most extreme conditions.
From the Moon and Back
The reason it was trusted wasn't just because of its proven functionality. It had something more that few understood. It had a record of dependability. It was reliable even after having undergone its trial by fire. Still, in 1957, it was more about what it looked like than what was under the hood.
The Speedmaster Moonwatch 321 3220.127.116.11.01.001 is a sharp-looking watch that holds its own in terms of beauty amongst the many fine watches we of our inventory at exquisitetimepiece.com. Yet, all Omega's 321 Calibre watches stand out for another reason. The reason the true connoisseurs loved the original Speedmaster Moonwatch was that they knew what was under the hood. They knew the 321 calibre was reliable. It's a stunning watch from the outside but the inside is even more incredible.
The original 321 Calibre is in the Ed White Edition, housed within the Omega Speedmaster Moonwatch's stainless steel casing. As well, the watch is made in the aesthetic likeness of the watch that astronauts Ed White wore in 1965 when the world first visited the moon.
The 321 Caliber Speedmaster was almost destined to be eternally under-appreciated by the undeserving. The original was a masterpiece for a higher reason than just being a visually pleasing timepiece. It was a watch that could handle re-entry into Earth's atmosphere. Those who truly respected horology at its highest levels, admired the watch because they knew that it was art that was under the hood.
Beautiful on the Inside
The 321 Calibre is housed in the 39.70 mm stainless steel case with the black polished bezel that stings with sharpness in opposition to the white enamel tachymeter scale. It has all the symmetry and splendor and existential beauty found in all of our watches, but there is a lot more to The Speedmaster Moonwatch 321. The true beauty of the original Speedmaster couldn't be seen. For all the brilliance within the housing, the Calibre went unregarded by the layman. Until now.
The 321 Speedmaster ‘Ed White’ edition 318.104.22.168.01.001, like its predecessors will not be destined to a life on the wrist of those who only appreciate the quality they can see from the outside. For that kind of appeal, any of the many beautiful watches at equisitetimepiece.com would be adequate. However, the 321 Caliber is several leagues above simply being adequate. It offers something unique to the discerning collector.
Omega's latest Speedmaster Moonwatch Ed White Edition stays true to the 1957 style. From the outside, the casual observer notices that the regal black step dial has the original vintage Omega logo. It has the iconic Moonwatch hands. It's equipped with both the 30-minute and 12-hour recorder and the symmetrical chronograph hand is like was in 1957.

The workings of the 321 Caliber cased within the Speedmaster Ed White edition is hard to explain with words alone. If a picture is worth a thousand words, then understanding the mechanizations of the 321 Calibre is worth all the words preserved a classical novel composed by history’s greatest poets. There is no other place where functionality merges so effortlessly with beauty than in the 321 Calibre. The symmetry is spectacular. And now it's workings are visible in real-time through the Sapphire crystal clear back casing.
Hand Made Timelessness
These brilliant timepieces are so intricate and their workings are so clever that the credit for each, belongs to an individual watchmaker. There is no factory line. There is no automation. Factory automation has not reached this level of quality--a level of quality that requires the touch of an artist as much as it requires the skills of an experienced engineer of horology.
And to simply see the clocks works still does not do this watch justice. The amount of abuse the 321 was subjected to in its original testing would destroy a lesser watch. They heated the 321 Calibre above temperatures that would kill a meer man and froze it to temperatures that would do likewise. They impacted it over and over again. They put it in water and pressurized it. They put in a total vacuum and subjected to g-forces previously unheard of. The 321 Calibre surpassed all the tests. Thus, it went to the moon.
And to see the 321 gearings, one could never imagine the durability that belongs to one of the most beautiful and delicate symphonies of gears, cogs, levers and other mechanisms of horology. It's some of the finest craftsmanship known to the luxury watch world.
These watches radiate all of the glamorous sophistication from the outside, but the magic of the 321 Calibre, would have never been seen by the wearer because it had been stowed away within the casing like a secret that is privy to only the most refined connoisseurs. Now Omega as undressed this brilliant timepiece in the Ed White edition. Now to see the most intimate mechanics of the Omega Speedmaster Moonwatch takes just a flip of the wrist.
