Omega Announces Its Most Moon-Centric Moonwatch Ever

A host of new Speedmasters released for 2022, including new Moonwatch "Moonshine" models.

Omega has announced a new collection of its definitive chronograph watch, the Speedmaster.

The professional grade chrono, worn by Nasa astronauts during the Gemini 4 mission in 1965, and on the surface of the Moon during the Apollo 11 mission in 1969, has inspired a devoted collectors' fanbase ever since.

Now the line has received a full 2022 upgrade, liable to ignite fierce debate among 'Speedy' fans.

The new models are based on the Speedmaster '57, introduced in 2013 and based on the original model from 1957. There are eight new versions, all measuring 40.5mm and featuring a thinner case and bezel, which the Swiss giant says gives a new "streamlined" look, at 12.99mm.

They include a "sandwich" black dial edition with recessed hour markers filled with SuperLuminova, and three models with PVD dials in blue, green, and "varnished" burgundy. All come powered by the brand's latest calibre 9906 manual-winding movement.

The collectors' prize, however, will surely be four new versions in 18-karat "Moonshine" Gold, Omega's proprietary metal. Of the new Speedmaster Moonwatch Moonshine models, one comes with a gold dial, black ceramic bezel ring, and blackened sub-dials indexes.


Another has a PVD green coated dial and green ceramic bezel ring.

These new versions come in an option of an 18-karat "Moonshine" gold bracelet or a "lunar surface" textured strap, with a "Moonshine" clasp.
