Omega has once again refreshed the looks of its iconic “Speedmaster”. This time around they’ve used their proprietary Moonshine™ gold to craft two new options for their celebrated Moonwatch. Potential buyers can opt between a gold polished dial with black PVD-treated sub-dials, which earns it the charismatic “Panda” dial moniker; or a full green PVD-coated version with various Moonshine™ gold elements shining on through.The 42mm case is made of 18k Moonshine™ gold with a mix of polished accents and overall brushed surface and casebands finish. Mounted to the case is a gold bezel with either a black or green ceramic insert, which features a tachymeter scale in gold with “Dot Over Ninety” lay-out.On the flip-side is a transparent sapphire exhibition case back that allows a view into the inner workings of the mechanical movement. Engraved along the gold periphery portion is the inscription “THE FIRST WATCH WORN ON THE MOON”.It comes equipped with two push-pieces to operate the chronograph functions with a setting-crown in-between them. All topped by a box-type sapphire crystal with anti-reflective coating. Water-resistance on these watches can reach up to 50 meters (167 feet).Time is exhibited on two distinct dial options: an all green PVD coated dial, except for the gold used for all the numerals and index markers; or a Moonshine™ gold dial with black PVD coated “Panda” sub-dials, and solid gold hour index markers that also feature a black coating; while circling around in the inner flange are black printed minute index markers. Omega has also tried to keep this dial similar to its original inspiration by including an applied Ω logo and the old vintage font for the “Speedmaster” inscription.There are three sub-dials: a 30-minute counter at the 3 o’clock; a 12-hour counter at the 6 o’clock; and a sub-seconds at the 9 o’clock position. The central gold (or black PVD coated) hours/minutes hands and small tips of the hour index markers have all been fitted with a luminous coating, for an enhanced legibility.
