In the 1960s, the space dream of American was just beginning. Every one in the USA is looking forward to flying to the moon to feel the mysterious power of the universe. However, in the era when the launch vehicle technology is still immature, it is very difficult and dangerous to request a 100% successful landing on the moon. Facing of repeated experimental failures, “security” became one of their most emphasized indicators. So, Snoopy, the safety guardian image of flight, was on the stage of manned space flight. In 1970, the crew aboard Apollo 13 with their precise copy Omega speedmaster wristwatches returned to the Earth then Omega received NASA’s Silver Snoopy Award.
The new version of white dial replica Omega Speedmaster limited edition of Snoopy was released to celebrate the 45th anniversary of Apollo 13 plan. At 9 o’clock, a sleepy lovely snoopy has been set on the center of the small seconds sub-dial and the letters of “Failure is not an option” has been transferred on the dial which is a actor’s line of the movie “Apollo 13”.
Coated with the luminescent Super-LumiNova, the hands, hour markers and the Snoopy will glitter with green light in the dark environment. Featuring the white dial, the Omega imitation with black nylon fabric strap is quite different from other Speedmaster which have been always designed to be strong and powerful, it could be said to be very cute. A crafted 925 Silver Snoopy medallion has been engraved on the dark blue enamel of caseback, which is very fascinating and attractive.
