Omega Speedmaster Silver Snoopy's Award 50th Anniversary

The only problem is that it doesn't cost peanuts. Sorry. I had to

In 1970, one year after landing on the Moon, NASA launched the Apollo 13 mission, which failed because an oxygen tank exploded. After the incident, the crew on board began drifting into space, stranded, with minimal power at their disposal. They decided to manually fire an engine in order to align the craft for re-entry into orbit and they used their Omega Speedmaster to time a 14-second burn which eventually allowed them to get back into the Earth's atmosphere.

Omega subsequently received the Silver Snoopy Award by NASA and fifty years later, they've decided to mark the occasion by unveiled a celebratory Speedmaster model: the 'Snoopy Award's 50th Anniversary.

The silver dial features three sub-dials and the the iconic Snoopy character is laser engraved in the small seconds sub-dial at the 9 o'clock with Snoopy with Ag925 silver on the PVD-coated sub-dial.

The 42-mm stainless case houses Omega's Caliber 3891, a 26-jewel and METAS-certified movement which vibrates at 21,600 VHP and comes with a 50-power reserve. On the case back, you'll find Snoopy in orbit inside a small craft while travelling to the Moon, with Planet Earth in the backdrop.

Amazingly, the watch is not a limited edition model and it comes in with a relatively affordable $9,600 price tag. Not Peanuts (sorry, I had to) but not exactly unattainable either.

  • I LOVE this watch. Mouth open going ahhhhhh, ohhhhh...

    The price is out of my league these days but once upon a time I would have jumped all over this.

    • I don't think so. Bond is probably going to wear a different Omega and Q is going to wear a Swatch

  • That’s a beautiful watch. I saw the non-snoopy one in a store last week. Not sure I would buy one purely due to the Snoopy. I might just go for a regular one if I am ever in the market. Cool back though.
