This special “Speedy Tuesday” model celebrates the famous OMEGA Speedmaster that appeared in the Japanese science fiction TV show “RETURN OF ULTRAMAN” in 1971.
The 42 mm case is stainless steel and features a black aluminium bezel with the word “tachymetre” in orange. Other touches of orange can be found on the black anodized aluminium dial, including the dots on the minute track, the first three minutes of the 3 o’clock subdial, and the famous varnished “Ultraman” central chronograph hand with its black stripe.
On the 9 o’clock subdial, the face of the Ultraman character is visible in UV light, while the hand of the subdial is shaped like Ultraman’s “beta capsule.”
The watch is limited to just 2,012 pieces and is presented on a black and orange NATO strap. As well as having vintage OMEGA logos throughout the design, it is also driven by the classic OMEGA Calibre 1861, which sits behind a caseback stamped with the OMEGA Seahorse medallion.
