Fans of Omega looking out for something new on the iconic Speedmaster should pay attention to the Speedmaster Master Chronometer Chronograph Moonphase.
First of all, the moon is now more realistic as it is presented in a contrasting black and white high resolution image. Look closely and you will also discover a rather large “crater” on the moon.
However, this isn’t one but what the brand claims is inspired by “… the first footprint left by Neil Armstrong on the Sea of Tranquility”.
Speaking of which, even the moon phase display is now more accurate as it will require adjustments after 10 years. Most other movements incorporating the moon phase display base each cycle on 29.5 days and a full-day error will result in less than three years.
Such features are meaningful as Omega’s Speedmaster left its imprint in horological history as the very first wristwatch that was worn on the Moon.
