At 12 noon on the 10th of July, OMEGA's new #SpeedyTuesday timepiece was available for sale via its @OMEGA Instagram channel. In just under two hours, all 2,012 pieces had been sold.
OMEGA's Speedmaster Limited Edition 42 mm "Ultraman" has proven to be a huge hit with watch fans around the world. The new Limited Edition timepiece was snapped-up in just 1 hour, 53 minutes and 17 seconds via its @OMEGA Instagram channel.
The new watch is a tribute to the key character in the ULTRAMAN series, a collection of shows created by Tsuburaya Productions in Japan. ULTRAMAN is one of the most famous examples of the Kaiju "giant monster" genre.
Though OMEGA's new "Speedy Tuesday" certainly has a sense of fun, with its 70's Japanese sci-fi references, the Speedmaster "Ultraman" boasts genuine space credentials, as it shares its DNA with OMEGA's 1967 "Moonwatch".
