The 2021 Omega Speedmaster Professional Moonwatch was always going to be an important release. However, with a mix of new features, an increased price and a new outlook, it has surprised for a variety of reasons. In this episode of Watch Chronicler Unscripted, I would like to separate fact from fiction about the new 2021 Omega Speedmaster.
When launched a couple of days ago, the 2021 Omega Speedmaster Professional was met with largely positive but, nevertheless, mixed responses. Many praised the new co-axial movement, retro-styling and improved bracelet. Other, however, felt that the watch moved too far away from the original watches worn on the moon and that the price rise was too steep.
In this podcast, I would like to separate fact from fiction and present exactly what is new, different and noteworthy about this new Speedmaster. I would also like to discuss the minutiae which have been left out by other publications in order to give you all the information there is.
