Omega Speedmaster Apollo 13 Silver Snoopy Award: A Look Into Its Recognizable Construction Elements
In 1970, OMEGA received the Silver Snoopy from NASA for their role in the Apollo program and the new Omega Speedmaster Apollo 13 Silver Snoopy Award watch commemorates their role and the safe return of the Apollo crew from their mission. The silver Omega Snoopy is surrounded by blue enamel with hand-applied silver flakes. The brand has been known for its case backs.
The Silver Snoopy has a 42 mm wide steel case with 14.8 mm thickness. Its recognizable black ceramic bezel boasts a luminous scale. The timepiece has a crisp dial with black hands and markers. The Silver Snoopy is powered by the brand’s caliber 1861 hand-wound chronograph movement which is the same movement that powered the watched used for the Apollo 13.
