Omega likes to impress its clients …

Two small photo-realistic moons with, and now please read carefully, the first foot-print on lunar surface are metallised on the moon phase disc. Even the location for it was chosen upon history: The footstep, representing humanity’s famous step onto the moon, is within the Sea of Tranquility on the moon phase disc. The realization of the moon is based on a high resolution NASA image.

  • Wow, stunning! Also the size is perfect for me. Can´t wait to see it in flesh …

  • What a lovely watch and perfect size, 44.5mm, what is the expected cost?
    Many thanks

  • It is a beautiful watch… It would be nice to have an option or rubber strap…

  • Beautiful in blue. The footprint is a nice bit of whimsy too. I would want to try one on first for comfort. I have Seamaster >15.000 Gauss that keeps excellent time and very comfortable to wear. I am sold on the coaxial in silicon.

    • Exactly the same for me. The > 15’000 is the best time keeping watch I own, since I have it, I am totally convinced of the co-axial.

  • Simply beautiful. I will consider selling another watch in order to get this fantastic piece.

  • Very clever – not only the footprint but the use of the Omega letter to highlight the date. One thing that puzzles me is the dial on the right – I would expect that to be the minutes totalizer for the chrono function but it seems to be marked as if it is a regular 12 hour dial.

    • It’s a two-in-one counter and it shows the elapsed time with a minute and hour hand. So it is easy to read and when staring exactly at 12:00 you can use it as a second zone-time indication when travelling.

  • This Swiss lady looks stunning, she will get lot of attention and plenty of offers to be taken out for a dinner.

  • Only grouse that I have about this watch, is its size, in fact, I wish it was 40-mm instead of 44.25-mm.

    Enjoyed the XL-sized pictures immensely though!

  • The watch looks stunning, but I wish Omega would offer versions in different sizes, including 40mm or 42mm.

  • A winner! The 44.5mm dia. is perfect. But the moon phase is striking. An important improvement over other moon phases in much more expensive time pieces.

  • Spectacular! Love the foot-print and the lunar surface resolution is incredible. Can’t wait to see it.
