Omega Speedmaster Master Chronometer Chronograph Moonphase

The Speedmaster, the first watch worn on the moon, now welcomes a new generation timepiece with a master chronometer certification. As a Master Chronometer, this watch celebrates another pioneering moment: OMEGA's exacting new standard of testing, set in late 2015, by the Swiss Federal Institute of Metrology (METAS).
In addition to basic timekeeping and chronograph functions, the timepiece displays the phases of the moon accurately and its moon-phase mechanism needs adjusting after 10 years only. The Moonphase mechanism of this watch features a metallic crystal disc micro-structured to obtain a high resolution image of the moon.
The Speedmaster Moonphase has many other striking features: including a stunning sun-brushed blue dial, ceramic bezel and stainless steel case. Liquidmetal® has been used on the tachymeter scale; another Speedmaster first, and a closer look reveals rhodium-plated circles on the subdials.  
This Speedmaster timepiece houses the revolutionary new 9904 movement, which is made up of 368 components and marks the start of a whole new era in watchmaking.
This new Speedmaster Moonphase wristwatch comes with a blue leather strap featuring a foldover buckle.
