Contact tmosso@thewatchbox.com for pricing and availability; Either I have it, or I can get it! Shop all Omega watches: http://bit.ly/2v2XXR9 The Omega Speedmaster "Tintin" is a 2013-2015 Speedmaster Professional Moonwatch to which a red and white checkered seconds track has been applied. Although the watch was envisioned as a Tintin-branded collaboration between Omega and the owners of the Tintin copywriter (creator Georges Remi / Herge having long since passed away), discussions broke down prior to the model's release. Subsequently, Omega cancelled plans to put the Tintin rocket ship from the comics on the dial, and the watch was released as the "Omega Speedmaster Racing." Credit where credit is due: https://www.fratellowatches.com/speedy-tuesday-omega-speedmaster-pro-tintin/ Dimensionally, and mechanically, the Tintin is constructed like any Omega Speedmaster Professional Moonwatch. The 42mm stainless steel case is topped by an aluminum anodized tachymeter and a hesalite (thermoplastic) crystal. The movement is the Lemania-based Omega 1861 manual wind chronograph caliber with 48-hour power reserve and 21,600 vibration per hour beat rate. The Moonwatch is water resistant to 50 meters. A dial with "racing" checkered pattern in white and red rings a matte black dial with white hands for time and chronograph functions. The watch is painted with Super Luminova for visibility at night. With the exception of the racing/tintin graphics, this is the same Omega Moonwatch that remains certified for flight and extra-vehicular activity (EVA) by NASA. This model remains in use by United States astronauts and members of allied nation space programs. The Omega Speedmaster Moonwatch (TinTin) Professional Chronograph 311. is encased in 42mm of stainless steel surrounding a black "TinTin" dial on a stainless steel bracelet. Functions include hours, minutes, seconds, and chronograph. The watch also measures 14.3mm in thickness and 48.5mm from lug-to-lug. For complete details, watch the full review!
