Omega Speedmaster Grey Side of the Moon boasts a look similar to the Speedmaster Dark Side of the Moon. Inspired by the lunar dust that captured mankind’s first and last steps on the Moon, the shimmering Speedmaster is crafted from white ceramic that has been transformed through-and-through to shimmering metallic grey. This transformation is made in a high-temperature plasma furnace. Related Replica Omega Speedmaster Grey Side of the Moon.
The 44.25mm case, case back, bezel, crown, pushers and buckle are crafted from the same ceramic material. Engraved on the case-back is the name of the watch: “GREY SIDE OF THE MOON”. The Super-LumiNova tachymetric scale on the brushed ceramic bezel – another first from Omega. The numbers and marks on the bezel have been engraved and filled with Super-LumiNova making it possible for the wearer to read the tachymeter scale in a variety of lighting conditions. The Ω-symbol on the crown is also filled with Super-LumiNova.
The sandblasted 950 platinum dial gives Omega Speedmaster Grey Side of the Moon a more elegant and classic look while underscoring the craftsmanship that went into creating the watch. Two integrated platinum sub-dials distinguish the timepiece from its legendary predecessor, Omega’s Moonwatch. These two sub-dials are made possible by the innovative placement of the 12-hour and 60-minute counters on the same sub-dial at 3 o’clock position, allowing a comfortable and intuitive chronograph reading. The black plated central chronograph seconds hand has a red tip and is coated with white Super-LumiNova, as are the central hour and minute hands, indexes and two dots at 12 o’clock. A box-form scratch-resistant sapphire crystal protects the impressive dial with anti-reflective treatment on both sides.
The grey leather strap and has a rubber insert with holes on the area where the buckle is fastened. On the underside of the strap there is red stitching that complements the red accents on the Omega Co-Axial calibre 9300 visible through the bevelled sapphire crystal case-back.
