Last January, Omega launched a similar 2,012 limited edition, the first Speedmaster Speedy Tuesday, in collaboration with Robert Jan Broer, the founder of FratelloWatches, a watch blog primarily focused on Omega, especially as many of its Speedmaster iterations shine through its decades of existence. The debut of just over 2,000 Omega replica watches was saved to the last in four hours – the first time Omega has done so. Now, apparently the market and eager collectors and fast club aficionados are ready, Speedy Tuesday 2 “Ultraman” is less than that – just over half an hour, according to me.
A tribute to the Omega Speedmaster Ultraman Orange Hand of 1968 (reference ST 145.012-67), named after the series from Japan’s Tsuriraya, is “the most famous example of the Kaiju’ monster ‘type.” I’m not an expert on the “monster” genre, and I’ll have to take Omega’s word for it – but I’ll catch up with the weird stuff in my 70s Japanese TV series, rest assured In fact, I’ve looked it up, and in fact, starting at 22:29, “the return of superman” episode 8 featured an orange super bully – but I recommend watching it for at least a few seconds, just, you know, so you can take it all away.

Add the black and orange NATO wristbands, and for some reason it reminds me of the ’80s adidas Originals tracksuit, where you really got an explosion from a famous collection from the past And, as we’ve seen, that’s what the market has been so desperate for lately. Since I’m often shocked by retro rereleases and faded lume, it did surprise me that I was digging into this new version. This may be because I like AAA fake Omega watches with a splashy color, and while the faded yellow lume I usually think of as an unwelcome addition, it neatly pulls together the black and orange motifs and adds another layer to it.
The last neat little detail we see from the limited edition Speedmasters reappears on the 9o ‘clock subdial: it’s the hidden outline of an ultraman configuration file that can be illuminated by ultraviolet light – and, no?
