The Speedmaster
“Dark Side of the Moon”

The Apollo 8 astronauts were the first people to see the dark side of the moon with their own eyes. The black ceramic Co-Axial Speedmaster salutes their pioneering spirit and pays homage to the Speedmaster Professional chronographs worn by every Apollo astronaut.

Inspired by a legacy

This timepiece is the product of groundbreaking technologies: it is crafted from a single block of black zirconium oxide ceramic. The OMEGA Speedmaster “Dark Side of the Moon” redefines the iconic design of the Moonwatch and its name evokes the mysteriousness and allure of space.

Super-LumiNova coats the two dots by the 12, the indexes and the 18K white gold hour, minute and chronograph hands ensuring that the wearer can read the time in a variety of lighting conditions.

The revolutionary movement

Complete with an innovative column wheel mechanism and Si14 silicon balance spring, the OMEGA Co-Axial calibre 9300 is the first of our exclusive in-house movements to incorporate a chronograph function. The 12-hour and 60-minute counter hands are placed on the same sub-dial at 3 o'clock allowing for an intuitive reading of the recorded time and the reliability of the movement is such that the timepiece is offered with a full four-year warranty.

Protecting the prominent dial is a box-form scratch-resistant sapphire crystal with anti-reflective treatment on both sides. The movement powering the timepiece is visible through the beveled scratch-resistant crystal on the caseback.
