Omega Speedmaster Moonwatch Vintage Black Watch in Ceramic

Summary

The Omega Speedmaster Moonwatch features a 44.25 mm case with brown indices 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 classic appearance. At its heart is the Omega Co-Axial calibre 9300.

Launched in 1957, the Speedmaster was an instant classic with its tachymetric scale and chronographic capabilities, but it made headlines in 1962 when it accompanied astronaut Wally Schirra on his orbit around the earth. The Omega Speedmaster became even more famous when it, once again, travelled to space and earned its title of the first watch worn on the moon when Buzz Aldrin stepped onto the lunar surface with one strapped to his wrist in 1969.

A total of six lunar voyages and more than 45 years later, the Omega Speedmaster still remains the only watch approved by NASA for EVA (Extra Vehicular Activity). 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".
