The Omega Speedmaster Dark Side of the Moon Black Black has a polished and brushed black ceramic casebody, a matt black ceramic dial and a black ceramic clasp on a black-coated nylon fabric strap. Giving this model its nickname are its brushed blackened Moonwatch-style hands and blackened applied indexes – all of which are coated with black Super-LumiNova. The familiar sub-dials at 3 and 9 o’clock are also matt black and the black ceramic bezel has a black lacquered tachymeter scale.

Combining Omega´s ceramic technology with its exclusive rose gold alloy, the Omega Speedmaster Dark Side of the Moon Sedna Black has a completely brushed black ceramic case with an 18 carat Sedna™ gold bezel ring which matches the 18 carat Sedna™ gold applied indexes and hands. The marks on the matt grey dial have been created using laser ablation. “Vintage” Super-LumiNova coats the central hour, minute and gold-plated chronograph seconds hands as well as the indexes and the two dots at 12 o’clock. This timepiece is presented on a black leather strap with a brushed ceramic fold over clasp.

The Omega Speedmaster Dark Side of the Moon Pitch Black is distinguished by the Super-LumiNova that coats the indexes on its matt black ceramic dial. The ceramic timepiece has a polished and brushed case body and a brushed ceramic bezel with a tachymeter scale also in Super-LumiNova. The matt black sub-dials have varnished hands. The “Pitch Black” is presented on a black leather strap with ecru stitching and a ceramic foldover clasp.

The Omega Speedmaster Dark Side of the Moon Vintage Black 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, as with the other new models in this family, 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.

The four new timepieces share a case back design that hints at their common inspiration: the original Speedmaster Dark Side of the Moon.

The black ceramic case back ring of each of these models features matt chromium nitride marks as well as the name of this iconic collection: “Dark Side of the Moon”.

Each of these black ceramic timepieces is powered by the Omega Co-Axial calibre 9300.
