EXPERIENCE THE DARK SIDE OF THE MOON
In 1968, the crew of Apollo 8 became the first humans to see the dark side of the moon, orbiting the moon 10 times over 20 hours. The Omega Speedmaster Apollo 8 pays tribute to the astronauts who embarked on this famous mission.
Embodying the brand’s pioneering spirit, this incredible chronograph pays homage to the ground-breaking lunar mission through its depiction of a full orbit of the moon. The transparent case back is engraved with the words “We’ll see you on the other side”, Jim Lovell’s final words to ground control before travelling to the dark side.
This 44.25mm timepiece features a perforated black leather strap with a yellow rubber interior, paired with a sleek black ceramic case and a tachymeter scale filled with white Super-LumiNova.
The black ceramic skeletonised dial represents the crater-filled lunar surface as seen from earth, while the caseback reveals the dark side of the moon only seen by astronauts.
Powering the watch is a remarkable, blackened version of the iconic Moonwatch 1861 calibre, specially decorated using laser ablation to create realistic imagery of the moon’s surface.
