First, there was the Speedmaster Dark Side of the Moon, and then Omega revealed its counterpart inspired by lunar dust, the Speedmaster Grey Side of the Moon. To round off the collection, Omega is proud to introduce yet another innovative timepiece inspired not by astronauts’ views of the moon in space, but rather the radiance of the celestial body as seen from Earth: the Omega Speedmaster White Side of the Moon.
Underscoring the brand’s commitment to innovative creations and advanced production processes, this eye-catching chronograph is the third in Omega’s selection of solid ceramic timepieces. The white zirconium oxide ceramic dial is complemented by a brushed, 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, and polished ceramic pushers on the case function 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-karat white gold Moonwatch-style hands and applied indexes. The central chronograph seconds hand, however, is rhodium-plated and stands out with a red tip – an unexpected dash of colour on the face of the timepiece. The Speedmaster White Side of the Moon is presented on 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.
