With just 100 days until the Paris 2024 Olympics, Omega is capitalizing on its status as the official timekeeper of the event with another new release. The Omega Speedmaster Chronoscope has remained unchanged since its initial release in 2021, in which it featured a large case and a vintage dial. However, with a big summer ahead, the Omega Speedmaster Chronoscope collection has expanded with two new iterations.

Omega Speedmaster Chronoscope: New additions for the Paris 2024 Olympics

Last year, clearly already excited for the Olympics like a kid asking about Christmas in March, Omega released the two-tone Seamaster Dive 300m as a commemorative watch. Now, we have a second set of watches to celebrate the upcoming games (at this rate, we’re half expecting Omega to drop a new watch to celebrate the opening ceremony, the closing ceremony, and all the sports in between. Essentially, these latest Omega Speedmaster Chronoscope timepieces maintain the essence of their predecessors, however, they feature different materials and colors, which can actually yield a significant difference.

The newest additions to the Omega Speedmaster Chronoscope collection mark the first time Omega has used solid gold in the line, but fans who were upset by this needn’t worry, as there is now a full gold version with Moonshine gold made just for you guys. Each of these new watches features a 43mm case that is 13mm thick and 48.6mm in length, meaning it adheres to the iconic Speedy asymmetrical design. In case you forgot, these new additions were made to commemorate the Paris 2024 Olympics, so naturally, there is a Paris 2024 logo on the back, while the bezel is the real showstopper, varying between the steel and gold variants. In the steel version, the tachymeter is made of anodized aluminum, while the Moonshine edition comes with a sleek, black ceramic bezel.

The dial is a 1940s dream with Moonshine gold accents, black sub-dials, and exquisite scales like the tachymeter, pulsometer, and telemeter scales. As for what’s underneath (because it’s really the inside that counts), these new Omega Speedmaster Chronoscope watches feature the caliber 9908/9909, a hand-wound movement that has a respectable 60-hour power reserve. It’s all about precision with a co-axial escapement and Master Chronometer certification.

Omega offers 2 strap options:

A classic, 21mm metallic bracelet featuring the iconic Speedmaster design with a folding clasp equipped with micro-adjustment capabilities.

A leather strap that comes with a pin buckle for a more vintage feel.

Price and availability

Where and how these watches will be available remains unclear, though they aren’t available online. Being that the Paris 2024 Seamaster was only sold at Omega’s Paris boutique, it’s likely that may be the case with these watches. The Moonshine gold with leather strap costs $32,700, while the same watch with a bracelet costs $51,500. For the stainless steel version with a leather strap, the price tag is $9,500, while the same watch with a bracelet will set you back $9,800.

Check out Patek Philippe's Newest Releases
Patek Philippe on wrist

The watch world is rich with history. With brands like Rolex, Omega, and Tudor coming out of Switzerland, it is easy to forget that they all owe a little part of their success to the father brand of all wristwatches, Patek Philippe. Since they created the first Swiss wristwatch for Countess Koscowicz of Hungary in 1868, they have innovated and led the way to create a massive watch industry that chronophiles love.

This year, at Watches and Wonders, they showed again that they are the best in the business by providing a whole slate of timepieces for us to ogle for the coming year. Here are all the watches Patek Philippe dropped in Geneva that you need to know about.

Hublot Big Bang in Glacier Blue

The newest addition to the Hublot MP-11 collection is a formidable presence, measuring a whopping 45mm in diameter and 14.4mm in thickness, so you'll need some major confidence if you want to sport this beast on your wrist. The inaugural Sapphire Big Bang was introduced in 2016 and since then the brand has delighted fans with an array of color iterations, from other sapphire colors to purple and orange. Now, Glacier Blue has been introduced, just in time to keep you cool this summer (in attitude, not temperature, unfortunately.)
Hublot: The Big Bang MP-11 in Glacier Blue

This Big Bang MP-11 features a 14-day power reserve, which is achieved through seven series-coupled barrels arranged in a horizontal configuration, and all of that can be viewed by the wearer. The truly vibrant Glacier Blue (seriously, the blue is so bright you'll feel like you're about to start seeing your breath) is made with a fresh chemical composition but still shares the same properties as sapphire: luminous, and able to withstand scratches.
Technical specifications
This Hublot watch will leave you completely mesmerized for several hours before you even think about the technical specifications, though there are some exceptional details to go over. Inside this MP-11 is the HUB9011 Manufacture manual-winding skeleton power reserve movement. As we mentioned above, there are seven series-coupled barrels, but they've been arranged in a coaxial and vertical configuration so the watch is able to maintain a super slim profile of just 10.9mm. All tied together like a bow on top is the blue transparent structured rubber strap with a titanium deployant buckle clasp.
