OMEGA Speedmaster Grey Side of the Moon
A counterpart to the brand’s ceremonial Dark Side of the Moon—a co-axial timepiece that salutes the Apollo 8 mission to the moon, the first spacecraft to do so and return safely to earth—OMEGA’s latest Speedmaster in gray, reveals distinguished design and high-functioning precision. Inspired by dust from the other side of the same Apollo 8 lunar landing—as NASA astronaut Jim Lovell famously said “the moon is essentially gray,”—the new watch is offered in a white ceramic that has been plasma heated into a brilliant shade of shimmering metallic gray. Its case, caseback—which boasts an engraved name—bezel, crown, pushers, and buckle of the piece are crafted from the same ceramic material. The 44.25 mm timepiece has a chronograph movement equipped with an Si14 silicon balance spring, a sand-blasted 950 platinum dial, and is finished with a gray leather strap with rubber inserts.
The OMEGA Speedmaster Grey Side of the Moon retails for $12,000 and is available at OMEGA boutiques nationwide.
