The Omega Speedster Moonphase is the representation of the moon. It has never looked more realistic. A closer look at the dial even reveals an astronaut’s footprint. The speedmaster is no stranger to the lunar surface, given the fact that it was the first watch worn on the moon. As a master chronometer,this watch celebrates another pioneering moment- Omega’s exciting new standard of testing set in late 2015 by the Swiss Federal Institute of Metrology.
True to its name, the timepiece displays the phases of the moon. Contrary to popular belief, a lunar month is not 30 dys but 29.5 days. Its highly accurate mechanism only needs adjusting after 10 years and all it takes is a few turns of the crown.
The Speedster Moonphase has many other striking features including a stunning sun-brushed blue dial, ceramic bezel and stainless steel case. Liquid metal has been used on the Tachymeter scale, another speedmaster first and a closer look reveals the all new rhodium-plated circles on the sub dials.
Though the hands are classic Speedster, the initial workings are a giant leap forward. The revolutionary new 9904 movement is made up of 368 components and marks the start of a whole new era in watchmaking. As the moon phase id both a master co-axial and a chronometer, it can be certified as a master chronometer.
