Omega Speedmaster Moonwatch Alaska Project

Posted on June 12, 2008 Under Gadgetry

With consumer space voyages looking more and more promising, and freak kitchen accidents an ever looming possibility, Omega is bringing back – in a limited release of under 2000 units – its Speedmaster Moonwatch “Alaska Project” timepiece. This design was cooked up in the 70’s during the early days of NASA forays into the void, and boasts temperature resistance encompassing more than 400 degrees Celsius (from -148 to +260) thanks to it’s red-anodized aluminum construction. You get one of these on your wrist (price TBD), and you’ll set the standard both on Mars and at Burning Man— same difference, I guess.
