The ceramic case of the Omega Speedmaster Dark Side of the Moon has been loved by consumers. This time, Omega once again uses innovative technology to create a watch case in black zirconia ceramic. The contrasting design of yellow and black makes the watch more vibrant. In 1968, when Omega first used color elements in the Speedmaster series, it was applied to the Speedmaster racing chronograph.
The chronograph hands are covered with yellow lacquer, and the tachymeter scale and the crown are coated with Super-LumiNova luminous coating. The black-yellow color scheme also extends to the strap design. The black leather strap is filled with yellow rubber ingenuity. Omega also uses milling tools to make the straps appear neat and equidistant, and the yellow is looming, making the watch even more distinctive. The word “WE’LL SEE YOU ON THE OTHER SIDE” printed on the back of the watch is from the mouth of Jim Lovell, driver of the Apollo 8 command cabin.
