The Speedmaster
“Dark Side of the Moon”

Emblematic of OMEGA’s bold style, forward-thinking innovation and adventurous spirit, the ceramic OMEGA Speedmaster “Dark Side of the Moon” is a sleek and sporty new addition to the popular collection.

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 Speedmaster Dark Side of the Moon collection

Rhapsodized, romanticized and analysed, the Moon has always enchanted us. It was the adventures and the accomplishments of the Apollo 8 astronauts that inspired the all-black, ceramic Speedmaster Dark Side of the Moon, but it is the mystique of the Earth’s nightlight that has spurred the creation of four new OMEGA timepieces that are now part of the collection: Black Black, Sedna Black, Pitch Black and Vintage Black.

Black Black

The Speedmaster Dark Side of the Moon “Black Black” has a polished and brushed black ceramic casebody, a matt black ceramic dial and a black ceramic clasp on a black coated nylon fabric strap. Giving this model its nickname are its brushed blackened Moonwatch-style hands and blackened applied indexes – all of which are coated with black Super-LumiNova. The familiar sub-dials at 3 and 9 o’clock are also matt black and the black ceramic bezel has a black lacquered tachymeter scale.

Vintage Black

The Speedmaster Dark Side of the Moon “Vintage Black” stands out with brown indexes and hands, which complement the “vintage” Super-LumiNova. The brushed ceramic bezel has a “vintage” Super-LumiNova tachymeter scale and, as with the other new models in this family, the matt ceramic dial has been created using laser technology. The “Vintage Black” has blackened central hands and varnished brown hands on the sub-dials at 3 and 9 o’clock. Another distinguishing feature is the brown leather strap which gives this innovative timepiece a more classic appearance.

Pitch Black

The Speedmaster Dark Side of the Moon “Pitch Black” is distinguished by the Super-LumiNova that coats the indexes on its matt black ceramic dial. The ceramic timepiece has a polished and brushed casebody and a brushed ceramic bezel with a tachymeter scale also in Super-LumiNova. The matt black sub-dials have varnished hands. The “Pitch Black” is presented on a black leather strap with ecru stitching and a ceramic foldover clasp.

Sedna Black

Combining OMEGA’s ceramic technology with its exclusive rose gold alloy, the Speedmaster Dark Side of the Moon “Sedna Black” has a completely brushed black ceramic case with an 18K Sedna™ gold bezel ring which matches the 18K Sedna™ gold applied indexes and hands. The marks on the matt grey dial have been created using laser ablation. “Vintage” Super-LumiNova coats the central hour, minute and gold-plated chronograph seconds hands as well as the indexes and the two dots at 12 o’clock. This timepiece is presented on a black leather strap with a brushed ceramic foldover clasp.

The tachymeter scale

The matt chromium nitride tachymeter scale – among the most identifiable design features of the Speedmaster – is engraved using state-of-the-art laser technology and stands out from the polished ceramic bezel.

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.

Unobstructed views

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.
