The most striking thing about the OMEGA Speedmaster Series Moon Phase Extreme Observatory is that it presents the real scene of the moon. This watch uses the photos of the moon taken by NASA to creatively reproduce the true image of the moon’s surface in the dial. The strong black and white contrast portrays the details of the moon’s surface to life. Upon closer inspection, you can even see a footprint left by the astronaut on the moon.
As the first watch worn by astronauts on the moon, the Omega Speedmaster series is no stranger to the surface of the moon. As a chronometer, this new Speedmaster watch has witnessed another groundbreaking historical moment: at the end of 2015, Omega passed a new certification process that was severely approved by the Swiss Federal Institute of Metrology (METAS). ——Zhenzhen Observatory certification.
Also as shown in this watch ‘Moon Phase to the Observatory’, this timepiece perfectly shows the change of the moon’s gloomy days. Unlike traditional cognition, the cycle of a lunar phase is not 30 days, but 29.5 days. This length of time is difficult to grasp for a standard geared system, but the Omega Moon Phase watch does an excellent job. This watch is equipped with a high-precision mechanism. It only needs to be adjusted once after 10 years of operation, and the operation is very simple. It only needs to turn a few crowns.
In addition to the accurate presentation of the moon phase profit and loss, the Omega Speedmaster series Moon Phase Zhizhen Observatory also has a pair of sub-dials with double hands, evenly distributed on both sides of the dial, visually showing symmetrical beauty.
The Omega Speedmaster Moon Phase Master Chronometer also has many personalities, including a smooth, sparkling, polished blue dial, ceramic bezel and stainless steel case. The Speedmaster scale bezel of the Speedmaster series uses Omega’s unique Liquidmetal for the first time. After careful observation, you can also find the new rhodium-plated ring design on the sub-dial, which highlights the details.
Although the classic Speedmaster hands are still used, the internal working mechanism of this new watch has achieved leaps and bounds. The revolutionary new 9904 movement consists of 368 components, marking the entry of a new era in Omega’s watchmaking process. The Omega Speedmaster series Moon Phase Zhizhen Observatory is equipped with a Zhizhen coaxial movement, and at the same time, it has been certified by the Swiss official observatory, so it is called Zhizhen Observatory.
Of course, the perfect finishing touch of any Omega timepiece is indispensable. The gorgeous blue dial, paired with a restrained deep blue leather strap and hidden folding buckle, has an elegant temperament while moving.
