Earlier today Omega and the Porsche Club of America introduced the Speedmaster Club of America (a.k.a. Speedy PCA). A limited edition of 99 pieces based on the Speedmaster Grey Side of the Moon, the Speedy PCA features a number of interesting changes to the original.
I sometimes like to look at limited editions across brands and see which parts are actually different compared to the base models. With the Speedy PCA, the first thing that you’ll notice are the bright yellow accents, which are inspired by the yellow brake calipers found on high performance Porsche cars. But Omega didn’t just add a few dashes of paint and call it a day. In fact, the dial, the hands, the bezel, the case back and the packaging are all different compared to the original Grey Side of the Moon.
The biggest change is found in the dial, which is now crafted from ceramised titanium rather than sand-blasted platinum, as indicated by the Ti engraving just above the center. Yellow accents are abundant but not overwhelming; the color is found on the timekeeping hands, the tip of the chronograph seconds hand, the dial, the bezel, and the case back with the PCA logo. A strap similar to the one found on the 2017 304.32.44.51.01.001, though done in grey & yellow, and a special presentation box complete the package.
