After the successful launches of Speedmaster Dark Side of the Moon, and the Speedmaster Grey Side of the Moon, OMEGA introduces 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 unique 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 and polished 44.25 mm ceramic casebody 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 polished white ceramic caseback, 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.
