The Dark Side of the Moon has never looked better than this sleek and contemporary Omega Speedmaster Moonwatch Co-Axial Chronograph Dark Side of the Moon Watch. Easily one of the brand’s most iconic time pieces – it is an outstanding blend of technological advancement, traditional spirit and daring exploration.
The 44.25 mm black ceramic case is finished in black bezel with matt chromium nitride tachymeter scale and a scratch-resistant sapphire crystal with a high-quality anti-reflective treatment on both sides. A self-winding chronometer with the Omega 9300 movement features the highly precise Co-Axial Escapement, displaying date, small seconds and boasting approximately 60 hours of power reserve.
Water resistant to 100m, the Omega Speedmaster Moonwatch is listed for $12,000.00 and captures brilliantly the brand’s adventurous spirit. With a movement accurate to a fault, the watch comes on a 44.25mm leather strap. Being the epitome of modern horological engineering and mechanics, Omega has introduced some impressive improvements to their original design that are subtle enough to stay true to their spirit, but not too discreet to not go unnoticed.
Thanks to various changes to its design – the new Omega Speedmaster Moonwatch has gained a decided advantage to its predecessors in terms of functionality and ease of use. The dial is much easier to navigate due to simplifying its layout by removing one sub-dial in favour of the addition of a symmetrical dual register layout. This also makes more room for the large date aperture.
Having retained the original case profile, the Speedmaster remains in the Omega family and heritage with its timeless proportions and high precision. It wears well thanks to its size and weight – it’s 44.25mm in diameter and 16mm thick. The column wheel design gives the watch a high-end scale feel with smoother functions and famous co-axial escapement, which is a wonderful low friction alternative to the traditional swiss-lever design.
