Speedmaster in black ceramic

“The Dark Side of the Moon”

The Watch Quote™ - April 30th, 2013



Redefining an iconic design

Emblematic of Omega’s bold style, forward-thinking innovation and adventurous spirit, this all-black Omega Speedmaster represents a sleek and sporty new addition to the popular collection.

The black zirconium oxide ceramic dial, complemented by a matching ceramic 44.25 mm case with a brushed and polished ceramic casebody, features striking 18K white gold applied indexes as well as two blackened sub-dials that distinguish the timepiece from its legendary predecessor, Omega’s “Moonwatch”.



These two sub-dials are made possible by the innovative placement of the 12-hour and 60-minute counters on the same sub-dial at the 3 o’clock position, allowing a comfortable and intuitive chronograph reading.

There is a small seconds sub-dial located at 9 o’clock and a date window at 6 o’clock. The hour and minute Moonwatch-style hands are fashioned from 18K white gold, as are the hands found on both sub-dials; the central chronograph hand is rhodium plated and features a red tip for increased visibility of recorded seconds. Super-LumiNova coats the two dots at 12 and the hour, minute and chronograph hands ensuring that the wearing can read the time in a variety of lighting conditions.

Protecting this prominent dial is a box-form scratch-resistant sapphire crystal with anti-reflective treatment on both sides.

The matt chromium nitride tachymeter scale – among the most identifiable design features of the Speedmaster – stands out on the polished ceramic bezel. The two polished ceramic chronograph control pushers on the case function totally independently – accordingly, there is no risk to the chronograph mechanism as a result of inadvertent manipulation.

This unique timepiece is presented on a highly durable black Cordura® fabric strap complete with a black ceramic buckle. The timepiece is water resistant to 5 bar (50 metres / 167 feet).

Powered by the incredibly advanced in-house movement, the Omega Co-Axial calibre 9300, and equipped with a Si14 silicon balance spring, this Speedmaster is offered with a full four-year warranty.


The dark side of the moon

Engraved on the polished ceramic caseback in matt chromium nitride, above the bevelled scratch-resistant sapphire crystal, are the words “Dark side of the moon” – an appropriate tribute to this Speedmaster’s heritage and its bold black design.


Building upon our past’s great legends

With a design that recalls the same watch that accompanied astronauts to the moon on all six lunar missions, this model is a welcome addition to the family and one that upholds the bold Speedmaster name. It is sure to find a strong following among Speedmaster fans and watch enthusiasts who want to combine the impressive legacy of a remarkable chronograph with the best series-produced mechanical watch movement in the world.
