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 history aboard the Apollo 8 mission is celebrated through the blackened movement, which is laser-ablated on the main plate and bridges to represent the moon’s surface. The near side can be seen through the skeletonized black anodised aluminium dial, while the far side can be seen through the caseback.
Presented on a perforated black rubber strap with yellow rubber interior, the entire watch is black ceramic and includes a varnished yellow chronograph seconds hands and a laser-engraved tachymeter scale on the bezel which is filled with white enamel. The small-seconds subdial (patent pending) also includes a grade 5 titanium hand shaped like the Saturn V rocket. This 3D shape is obtained by laser turning, while the colours are obtained by white varnish, ablation, and laser blackening.
The specially decorated movement is the OMEGA Co-Axial Master Chronometer Calibre 3869, while the engravings on the caseback include “APOLLO 8, DEC 1968”, “DARK SIDE OF THE MOON”, “WE’LL SEE YOU ON THE OTHER SIDE”, and "CO-AXIAL MASTER CHRONOMETER".
