It was the adventures and the accomplishments of the Apollo 8 astronauts that inspired the all-black, ceramic Speedmaster Dark Side of the Moon, but it is the mystique of the Earth’s nightlight and its ever-changing yet constant presence that has spurred the creation of the Speedmaster Dark Side of the Moon “Black Black”.
This 44.25 mm model has a polished and brushed black ceramic casebody, a matt black ceramic dial and a black ceramic clasp on a black coated nylon fabric strap.
Giving this model its nickname are its brushed blackened Moonwatch-style hands and blackened applied indexes – all of which are coated with black Super-LumiNova. The familiar sub-dials at 3 and 9 o’clock are also matt black and the black ceramic bezel has a black lacquered tachymeter scale. At its heart is the OMEGA Co-Axial calibre 9300.
