Steel on leather strap
The Speedmaster is one of OMEGA’s most iconic timepieces, having been a part of all six lunar missions. Taking the spirit of exploration a step further, this new Moonphase features two infinitely small yet photo-realistic moons.
This 44.25 mm model features a blue sun-brushed dial, with rhodium-plated indexes. At 6 o'clock is the accurate Moonphase indication, which features a metallic crystal disc microstructured to obtain a high resolution image of the moon.
The stainless steel case is complemented by a blue ceramic bezel ring with Liquidmetal® tachymeter scale and presented on a blue leather strap with a polished-brushed foldover clasp.
Powering the timepiece is the OMEGA Co-Axial Master Chronometer 9904, which has been officially certified by METAS.
The movement is unaffected by exposure to strong magnetic fields, even those greater than 1.5 tesla (15,000 gauss).
Complicated watch with a function for measuring short time periods in addition to its function for permanently displaying hours, minutes and seconds.
Label given to a watch which has undergone precision tests and received a certificate from an official body (COSC).
The day of the month, displayed in a window on a watch dial typically at the 3 o'clock or 6 o'clock position.
Liquidmetal is an alloy which is considerably harder than stainless steel yet bonds seamlessly with ceramics. The blended materials are particularly resistant to scratching and corrosion.
A function which tracks the phases of the moon. One lunar cycle is 29 days, 12 hours, 44 minutes and 2.8 seconds and includes four phases: new moon, first quarter, full moon, last quarter.
A hand on a sub-dial which tracks seconds; typically it completes a full rotation in one minute.
A tachymeter is an instrument for measuring speed. It is a chronograph with a graduated dial on which speed can be read off in kilometres per hour based on 1000 metres distance.
