Description

As a part of all six moon landings in history, the legendary OMEGA Speedmaster is a true icon of space as well as OMEGA’s pioneering spirit.

In this 44.25 mm model, the Speedmaster’s lunar history is celebrated on the blackened movement, which has been laser-ablated to represent the moon’s surface. The near side can be seen through the blackened skeletonised dial, while the far side can be seen through the caseback.

Presented on a perforated black leather strap with a yellow rubber interior, the entire watch is black ceramic and includes varnished yellow chronograph hands and a Super-LumiNova tachymeter scale.

The specially decorated movement inside is the OMEGA Calibre 1869, while the engravings on the caseback include “APOLLO 8, DEC 1968”, “DARK SIDE OF THE MOON”, and “WE’LL SEE YOU ON THE OTHER SIDE.”

Ceramic

OMEGA has unrivalled expertise in the use of ceramics, dating back more than 10 years. Taking its origin from the Greek word "keramos", ceramic is an inorganic, non-metallic substance obtained by firing at high temperatures. It allows the creation of completely dense watch parts with exceptional mechanical properties. Ceramic is one of the most popular choices for customers when selecting their timepiece, thanks to its appealing colour range and specific properties, such as it being two times lighter than stainless steel, hardwearing, highly scratch-resistant, chemically inert, hypoallergenic, environmentally friendly and non-magnetic.

Sapphire Crystal

To really appreciate the finer details of a timepiece, OMEGA uses synthetic sapphire crystal with a highly scratch-resistant and anti-reflective treatment. Before the machining and finishing processes take place, the sapphire crystals are produced under the Verneuil process, also called flame fusion. It involves the melting of the raw substance using oxyhydrogen flame and the crystallisation of the melted droplets to form a cylinder. Graded 9 on the Mohs-hardness scale (graded 1-10), the resulting sapphire crystals are virtually scratch-proof and very hard, ensuring an unhindered vision at all times.

A new look for your watch

Your watch and strap should go together perfectly, but that doesn't mean you can't experiment with different combinations. Why not mix things up and see what happens? You may discover a look that's as individual as you are.
