Continuing to build on their existing Dark Side of the Moon collection, this year Omega introduced four new models to the line: Black Black, Sedna Black, Pitch Black, and Vintage Black. Each model comes with a case constructed entirely from a single block of black zirconium oxide ceramic. All models have black bezels, straps and cases as their names suggest. There are slight differences in the materials used within the dial. The collection draws inspiration from the astronauts of NASA’s Apollo 8 mission.
The Black Black
The Speedmaster “Black Black” sports an elegant all-in black theme. Even the hands and indexes are coated with black Super-LumiNova. This doesn’t take away from the legibility and the model remains one of the more austere and minimalistic choices in the collection, with a price tag of $12,000. Its black leather strap has ecru stitching and a ceramic folding clasp.
The Sedna Black
The “Sedna Black.” Has an exclusive rose-gold alloy incorporated into its detailing. The dial, bezel, and case are made of entirely black ceramic, but 18K rose-gold complements some elements – indexes and hands, as well as the bezel’s the outer edge. The gaps, the central hour, minute, and chronograph seconds hand, as well as the indexes and dots at 12 o’clock are coated in “Vintage” Super-LumiNova. Price for the model is $15,000.
The Pitch Black
The model prominently features the Super-LumiNova in every detail on the dial and bezel. Its matte-black ceramic dial contrasts with the greenish hue of the LumiNova on the indexes, hands, chapter ring, signage, date wheel, and the tachymeter scale on the ceramic bezel. The Pitch Black Speedmaster is sold for $12,000.
The Vintage Black
The only model from the Dark Side of the Moon collection set on a brown leather strap. The Vintage Black has varnished brown hour indexes that match the “vintage” Super-LumiNova on its hands and dial. The tachymeter scale sports the same color of luminous coating. With a brushed ceramic case and a matte ceramic dial, the hands of the watch are also blackened, while the subdial hands remain brown. Price for the model is $12,000.
