The new Dark Side of the Moon edition Speedmaster is Omega’s first all black ceramic watch.
watches Tomorrow I will board my first international flight of 2014, kicking off another year of frequent travel. On my wrist will be by Omega Speedmaster Moonwatch Professional, more commonly known as the first and only watch ever worn on the moon.
swiss replica watches aaa+ I like to wear this watch when I hit the road because to me it is all about why we travel – to explore new frontiers, see new places and experience new things, often for the first time. There are hundreds if not thousands of fine Swiss mechanical watches to choose from, but only the Speedmaster took mankind’s greatest journey and accompanied the astronauts on all six lunar missions. That is impressive but hardly the whole story: All told, the Speedmaster flew on more than one hundred spaceflights including every single manned Gemini and Apollo mission, to Skylab, and was used on two important polar expeditions. In 1967-68 Ralph Plaistad is believed to have been the first ever to reach the true North Pole over the surface, finding exactly 90° north using a sextant and his Speedmaster. A year after Neil Armstrong used his Speedmaster to time the first moonwalk on the Sea of Tranquility, the watch became vitally important in precise calculations during the infamous, “Houston we have a problem here,” mishap with Apollo 13. Once Mission Control calculated an exact 14 second engine burn to return the crippled craft to earth, it was the chronograph on the Speedmaster that did the vital timing. In 1975 when the joint US/Soviet Apollo/Soyuz mission became the historic first docking in space, all five participants, three astronauts and two cosmonauts, wore the same watch – the Speedmaster.

It still is. But this month Omega released another notable Speedmaster that is more aimed at collectors, “The Dark Side of the Moon” edition. The all black watch references the Apollo 8 astronauts, the first humans to see the dark side of the moon with their own eyes – while wearing Speedmasters, of course.
The classic Omega Speedmaster Professional – the first and only watch ever worn on the moon.
best replica watches site A distinctively sleek and sporty addition to the collection, this is Omega’s first all-black ceramic watch. While the traditional Moonwatch is stainless steel with a black dial, this one has a polished black case, bezel and black zirconium oxide ceramic dial all machined from a single block of black ceramic. The dial has 18K white gold indexes, and while the traditional Moonwatch has a chronograph (or stopwatch function) read on three sub-dials, this one has just two blackened sub-dials, at the 3 and 9 o’clock positions, made possible by placing the 12-hour and 60-minute counters on the same dial. There is also a date window at 6 o’clock. The 18K white gold hour and minute hands are in the traditional Moonwatch-style, and the new model retains a key signature of the Speedmaster collection, the tachymeter scale on the bezel. However, one Moonwatch signature has been updated: the classic model features a hesalite (plastic) “crystal,” since NASA wanted nothing that could shatter into sharp pieces and float around the capsule, a bit of an anomaly among fine watches, as the plastic tends to scuff and scratch, but this becomes part of the patina and is evidence that it is the real thing. The new take on the Speedmaster uses a scratch-resistant sapphire crystal much more typical of contemporary fine watches, with anti-reflective treatment. To complete the look, the Dark Side of the Moon edition comes with a black coated nylon strap and black ceramic buckle. It is water resistant to 167 feet.
high quality replica watches Because of the craftsmanship required for the ceramic, Omega claims that this dramatic looking watch takes 20 times longer to make than the stainless steel version, and it is priced significantly higher: while the classic Moonwatch has an MSRP of $4,500 this one clocks in at $12,000 and can be found in Omega boutiques worldwide starting this month.
