Ref. 311.92.44.30.01.001

In 1968, the Apollo 8 crew became the first humans to ever see the dark side of the moon. 50 years later, OMEGA has produced this incredible chronograph in tribute to that mission. As well as having a skeletonised dial, this collectable watch is remarkable for its specially decorated version of the famous Moonwatch calibre 1861.

Presented on a perforated black leather strap with yellow rubber through the middle, this Speedmaster’s unique design remains true to Apollo 8’s pioneering spirit. The entire watch is produced in sleek black ceramic and the dial has been expertly skeletonised to reveal a blackened movement inside. Most impressively, the movement has been laser-ablated to produce realistic imagery of the lunar surface.

The chronograph hands are varnished yellow, while the watch's tachymeter scale and crown are filled with white Super-LumiNova. The Speedmaster and Tachymetre words also appear in yellow.

Around the transparent caseback, the words "WE'LL SEE YOU ON THE OTHER SIDE" reference Jim Lovell’s final words spoken to ground control just before Apollo 8 travelled to the far side of the moon.

The dial-side of this watch is a light shade with a landscape full of craters to represent our view of the moon’s surface from Earth.

The caseback delves into the dark side of the moon that only astronauts get to see. It’s also a perfect view of the Calibre 1869 inside.

Omega Speedmaster

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 favourite chronograph.
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.
