Omega Speedmaster Moonwatch Dark Side of the Moon Apollo 8 Watch Review
Omega is a household name when it comes to luxury Swiss watches. For decades, the brand has been dishing out new timepieces that have defied what we know about luxury timepieces. They push the limits of Swiss luxury watchmaking to new and brilliant places. Every watch connoisseur has an Omega watch in their collections that is bound to increase the value and prestige of the collection.
Their Speedmaster collection is probably one of the most famous collections of the brand. The Speedmaster was initially a racing watch designed for professional racing. However, during the Apollo 8 mission, NASA was looking for a watch that would pass through its rigorous testing and would be able to withstand the numerous challenges of space. The Omega Speedmaster was the only watch that could resist the adverse conditions and pass all of NASA's tests and became the first luxury watch to go to the moon and back.
The Omega Speedmaster Moonwatch Dark Side of the Moon Apollo 8 3126.96.36.199.01.001 was released half a century after the first moon mission to commemorate the rich history of the Apollo Speedmaster watches. However, the timepiece is not just a remembrance of Omega's space adventures. It is a homage to the journey that the Speedmaster and Omega have gone through as a brand. The watch features some fantastic additions in both design and specifications that make it a serious head-turner.
Design-wise, the Omega Speedmaster Moonwatch Dark Side of the Moon Apollo 8 3188.8.131.52.01.001 is the epitome of elegance and class. Even though there have been several Speedmasters released by Omega, the Omega Speedmaster Moonwatch Dark Side of the Moon Apollo 8 3184.108.40.206.01.001 holds a special place. The attention to detail in this piece is unparalleled.
The case of the watch is black ceramic and has a diameter of 44.25mm. The dark color choice for the case depicts elegance and also stays true to the “Dark Side of the Moon” branding that Omega is going for with this piece. Even though the case is bulky, it sits snugly and intricately on your wrist. The watch also has the iconic words "WE'LL SEE YOU ON THE OTHER SIDE" carved on the back of the case. Jim Lovell, of the Apollo 8 crew, said these words before the team started to move towards the far side of the moon. The case has a tachymeter that is luminous along with the needle and indicators of the watch. This feature enhances functionality as well as works for the aesthetic of the watch.
The watch's bracelet is made of leather and is perforated. Through the small holes in the leather is a bright yellow rubber strap that runs through the leather layers of the bracelet. This design of the bracelet provides an elegant contrast and a pop of color to the watch.
The Omega Speedmaster Moonwatch Dark Side of the Moon Apollo 8 3220.127.116.11.01.001 is a commemoration of the original Speedmaster Professional's brilliant and rich history. Therefore, the brand has opted to use a classic hand-wound caliber 1861 for powering the watch. In contrast, the other modern Speedmasters are powered by a much more advanced caliber 9300. The 9300 is more advanced in terms of technological advances. However, many customers appreciate the brilliant caliber because of its history.
The accuracy of the Omega Speedmaster Moonwatch Dark Side of the Moon Apollo 8 318.104.22.168.01.001 is unbeatable. The dial of the watch has been carefully designed to look like the surface of the moon. For this purpose, laser treatment has been used. The laser treatment also works to make the case as non-reflective as possible.
Sapphire glass crystal has been used in the watch that is both functional and shock-resistant. It is also water-resistant up to 50 meters and comes with a 48 hours power reserve. These features make the Omega Speedmaster Moonwatch Dark Side of the Moon Apollo 8 322.214.171.124.01.001 one of the best buys you can get.
