MOONWATCH CO-AXIAL CHRONOGRAPH 44,25MM DARK SIDE OF THE MOON VINTAGE BLACK
Since its launch more than half a century ago, the OMEGA Speedmaster has
been the classic chronograph, known for its robust reliability and
timeless design. And since the 21st of July 1969, when it was first worn
on the lunar surface, it has been popularly known as the Moonwatch.
Inspired by its legendary predecessor, the
Speedmaster Moonwatch Chronograph is set to establish its own
reputation. It shares some core elements with the original Speedmaster
Professional but has features that will attract new fans to the world’s
The Speedmaster Moonwatch Chronograph has the 44.25
mm stainless steel case that has long been associated with the
Speedmaster Professional. Presented on a stainless steel bracelet or a
black leather strap, this watch has a bevelled black dial with white
transferred elements and varnished white hands. The familiar Speedmaster
tachymeter scale is found on the black bezel.
The dial of the Speedmaster Moonwatch Chronograph has
two sub-dials instead of the three associated with the original
Speedmaster. This is made possible by the placement of the 12-hour and
60-minute counters on the same sub-dial at 3 o’clock, allowing an
intuitive reading of the elapsed time. The small seconds sub-dial is
still found at 9 o’clock on the dial.
At the heart of the Speedmaster Moonwatch Chronograph
is the OMEGA Co-Axial calibre 9300. The 18K orange gold model is
powered by the OMEGA Co-Axial calibre 9301 with an 18K red gold balance
bridge and a special luxury finish. Each chronograph’s revolutionary
mechanical movement is visible through the sapphire crystal caseback.
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
and its ever-changing yet constant presence that has spurred the
creation of the Speedmaster Dark Side of the Moon "Vintage Black".
This 44.25 mm model 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 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. At its heart is the
OMEGA Co-Axial calibre 9300.
