Omega Dark Side Of The Moon Speedmaster Professional Moonwatch
A bold tribute to the astronauts of Apollo 8 who were the very first to see the dark side of the moon, Omega celebrated their pioneering excellence in 2014 through the release of the esteemed Speedmaster Dark Side of the Moon. Paying special homage to the astronauts who’s wrists were adorned with their own early Speedmaster models, this version of the Moonwatch encapsulates the beautifully desolate nature of space through aid of first-class watchmaking prowess. Forged from a single block of black zirconium oxide ceramic, both dial and case (44.25mm) maintain a strinkingly rich presence on the wrist as the Moonwatch’s piercing black complection stands paramount. Held within the brushed and polished ceramic casebody sits two independent ceramic pushers. The watch sits on a coated nylon fabric strap, fitted with a matching ceramic Omega stamped buckle. Much of this watch’s beauty and technical expertise can be attributed to its Omega Co-Axial calibre 9300 movement, observable through the watch’s clear display caseback. Incoporating a column wheel mechanism and Si14 silicon balance spring, this movement has been considered revolutionary due to its inclusion of a chronograph function. A prominent feature of this watch resides around the sub-dial at 3 o’clock at which the 12-hour and 60-minute counter hands are both situated, enabling for a reliable and convenient method of reading the time. This Speedmaster is sold with its original inner and outer packaging as well as instruction booklet, signed Omega pouch and polishing cloth as well as its international guarantee, displaying a date of 06/12/14. Created to celebrate a treasured period of space expedition, the Dark Side of the Moon Speedmaster stands as one of the most prominent Speedmaster releases in Omega’s recent history. This is a valuable opportunity to purchase a watch with both prestige and undeniable finesse.
