Item InformationAs well as beautifully measuring every moment on earth; this Omega timepiece follows the phases of the moon, which makes perfect sense given that the Speedmaster was the first watch ever to be worn on the lunar surface. As a Master Chronometer, the Moonphase celebrates another pioneering moment: OMEGA's exacting new standard of testing approved by METAS in 2015.
THE MOONPHASE UP CLOSE: A bold use of blue gives the Moonphase its distinctive look. The sun brushed dial, ceramic bezel and leather strap are all in brilliant blue. The case is in stainless steel and the twin two-handed subdials with rhodium-plated circles give the watch a beautifully symmetrical look. The image of the moon, in sharply contrasting black and white, is as detailed as a NASA photograph.
LUNAR PRECISION: A brief astronomy lesson: a lunar month is not 30 days, but slightly more than 29.5 days. A difficult time-span to manage for a standard gear train, but OMEGA's Moonphase is up to the task. Its highly accurate mechanism only needs adjusting after 10 years, and all it takes is a few turns of the crown.
THE MASTER MOVEMENT: The revolutionary new 9904 movement is made up of 368 components and marks the start of a whole new era in watchmaking: the Co-Axial Master Chronometer has landed.
