OMEGA – SPEEDMASTER GREY SIDE OF THE MOON “METEORITE“
Introducing the Omega Speedmaster Grey Side of the Moon “Meteorite”
After taming the moon in 1969, the Bienne-based firm Omega is now launching the race to the stars, or rather to the meteorites, with its new model, the Speedmaster Grey Side of the Moon “Meteorite”, a contemporary and more technical version of the famous Moonwatch.
The grey ceramic case measures 44.25mm in diameter and features a pink gold SednaTM bezel – a precious metal made from an alloy, giving it a warm and lasting feel – with a gilded tachymeter scale. But what immediately attracts attention is the face on this model. The dial is in fact made up of a Gibeon meteorite disc with a striped Widmanstätten pattern, the famous highly graphic silvery lacerations.
The hours and minutes are displayed in the centre, with the seconds shown at 9 o’clock and the date at 6 o’clock. The seconds on the chronograph also run in the centre and there is an hour and minute recorder at 3 o’clock. The mechanism is run by the automatic Caliber 9300.
Price: 13,900 CHF
