Underscoring the brand’s commitment to innovative creations and unique and advanced production processes, this chronograph is the third in Omega’s selection of solid ceramic timepieces. The white zirconium oxide ceramic dial is complemented by a brushed and polished 44.25 mm ceramic case body made of the same brilliant material. The polished white ceramic bezel has a matt chromium nitride tachymeter scale. The polished ceramic pushers on the case function totally independently so there is no risk to the chronograph mechanisms as a result of inadvertent manipulation.

The box-form scratch-resistant sapphire crystal, treated with an anti-reflective coating on both sides, protects the dial with its 18 carat white gold “Moonwatch”-style hands and applied indexes. The central chronograph seconds hand is rhodium-plated and stands out with a red tip. White Super-LumiNova coats the central hour, minute and chronograph seconds hands as well as the indexes and the two dots at 12 o’clock. Engraved just above the centre of the dial are “ZrO2” and, also in red, “Speedmaster”. There is a small white sub-dial at 3 o’clock that serves as a 60-minute and 12-hour recorder and a small second sub-dial can be found at 9 o’clock.

The Speedmaster White Side of the Moon is combined with a white leather strap with a white fold over clasp with grade 5 titanium frame-spring folders – the special ceramic clasp distinguishes this model from its siblings.

The polished white ceramic case back, with its bevelled scratch-resistant sapphire crystal, features matt chromium nitride marks and is engraved with the name of the watch: “White Side of the Moon”. The Omega Co-Axial calibre 9300, the first in-house Co-Axial movement to feature a chronograph function, is at the heart of this statement-making timepiece.

    The number 8 in the date display and the chronograph hands look as though they have been hand painted with the Vintage Superluminova.

    Is this correct?

    Do you know if this is how the production watch will look?

    Give me a Dark Side of the Moon with a brown strap please. The Snoopy homage is cool too. I like the entire collection.

    Great write up and photos as well!
    Will there be more info soon on possible Seamaster novelties, or is this it for this year?
