Overview

Produced exclusively in a sleek Black ceramic with an imposing 44.25mm case, OMEGA have captured the Apollos 8’s pioneering spirit in the watch’s unique design. The Speedmaster Moonwatch Apollo 8 enables you to delve into a world many of us will never experience. The most impressive feature on this masterpiece is the realistically lasered movements, representing the lunar surfaces. Through the skeletonised dial you will discover a light surface full of craters signifying our view of the moon from here on earth, turning the watch over you will uncover a transparent caseback shielding a surface that demonstrates the dark side, the side of the moon that only astronauts get to see.

Striking yellow varnished chronograph hands, Speedmaster and Tachymeter wording prominently stand out against the darkened features, while the watch’s Tachymeter scale, hands and index markers are filled with white Super-LumiNova, enabling definitive reading in the darkest of conditions. Presented on the perforated black leather strap with a protective yellow rubber lining. The OMEGA Speedmaster Moonwatch Chronograph enables the wearer to make a connection with space travel history.

Powered by the Calibre 1869, a special movement crafted from the Professional Moonwatch legendary calibre 1861, exclusively made for the magnificent Moonwatch Chronograph Apollo 8 with an impressive 48-hour power reserve. Surrounding the transparent caseback are engravings of ‘DARK SIDE OF THE MOON’ and the famous last words “WE’LL SEE YOU ON THE OTHER SIDE” spoken by Pilot Jim Lovell before embarking over to the unexplored dark side.
