Switzerland’s famous watchmaking brand OMEGA has once again released the ‘Speedy Tuesday’ watch-the Speedmaster ‘Ultraman’ limited edition through its online platform. ‘Ultraman’ is the main character in the series of Ultraman series produced by Japan’s Mariya Production Co., Ltd. It can be called a model in the series of ‘giant monsters’. To pay tribute to this classic character, Omega presents the new Speedmaster ‘Ultraman’ limited edition watch.

This new Speedmaster watch incorporates elements of the Japanese science fiction film Ultraman in the 1970s. It is extremely innovative, but even more proud of its true origins in space, as it launched in 1967 with Omega. The lunar watch can be described as the same.
The Speedmaster Moonwatch, born in 1967, attracted the attention of the fourth creative team of the Ultraman series with its unique orange chronograph seconds hand. The watch’s striking orange color matches the color of the heroic and fearless monster special attack team uniforms, making the Omega Speedmaster series moon watch an indispensable combat equipment for fighting monsters.
The new ‘Altman’ chronograph seconds hand completely retains the design of the 1967 prototype: the same orange hue, the same size. At the same time, the watch also uses a black and orange aluminum oxide bezel, echoing the orange chronograph seconds hand. The classic small dial design is also surprising. Since Altman can only change into superhero mode for only 3 minutes, the watch is located at 3 o’clock, the first 3 minutes of the minute dial are decorated with orange, and the small second dial at 9 o’clock can see Ultraman’s profile. The strap changing tool is inspired by the Ultraman Transformer Beta Magic Wand, with a UV lamp at one end of the tool. When the ultraviolet light shines on the dial, the Ultraman pattern on the dial will appear more clearly.
The dial is decorated with a vintage-style Omega logo, giving it a nostalgic look. The caseback is engraved with ‘#SpeedyTuesday’ and ‘QUALIFIED BY NASA FOR ALL MANNED SPACE MISSIONS’ (certified for NASA spacecraft missions for all manned space flights). The watch is paired with a black and orange ‘NATO’ NATO military strap and a spare black leather strap.
The Omega Speedmaster “Ultraman” watch is limited to 2,012 pieces in the world. It is highly collectible and carried in a special hexagonal watch case. It pays tribute to the monster’s futuristic hexagonal worktable.
