Omega unwraps the Dark Side of the Moon collection

Omega introduced its first all ceramic watch, the Speedmaster Dark Side of the Moon (DSOTM), at BaselWorld 2013. It took the world by surprise and was something of a runaway success. Now, at BaselWorld 2015, the brand has launched four new ceramic watches under the Dark Side of the Moon umbrella.

The Dark Side of the Moon collection was announced alongside the new Speedmaster White Side of the Moon.

Omega introduces the White Side of the Moon at BaselWorld 2015

BaselWorld 2013 was the stage that Omega chose to reveal its ceramic Dark Side of the Moon (DSOTM). The following year, at BaselWorld 2014, the brand then introduced the Grey Side of the Moon (GSOTM), and now, the Biel/Bienne-based brand has unveiled the White Side of the Moon (WSOTM).

We reckon Omega is setting a precedent - a new ceramic Speedmaster at every BaselWorld.

Omega Speedmaster Apollo 11 45th Anniversary touches down in Dubai

On July 20, 1969, at 20:18 UTC, astronauts Neil Armstrong and Edwin ‘Buzz’ Aldrin made history when they touched down on the lunar surface in the Apollo 11 lunar module, named ‘Eagle’. Six hours later, at 02:56 UTC, Armstrong and Aldrin then became the first humans to set foot on the surface of the moon. Strapped to Aldrin’s wrist, on the outside of his space suit, was Omega’s manual winding Speedmaster Professional chronograph.

We have touch down, just in time for the actual 45th anniversary of the Apollo 11 mission.
