    Published on Feb 9, 2019

    The Omega Speedmaster Moonwatch Co-Axial "Dark Side of the Moon" 311. features a 44.25 black ceramic case surrounding a black dial on a black and red NATO strap with a stainless steel buckle. Functions include hours, minutes, seconds, date, chronograph and tachymeter. The watch also measures 16.4mm in thickness and 50mm from lug-to-lug.


    From deep space, comes this powerful version of the Moonwatch "Dark Side of the Moon". Machined from a single block of black ceramic, the iconic 44.25 mm Speedmaster case is completed by a brushed ceramic bezel with matt chromium nitride tachymeter scale.
    The dial is again created from polished black ceramic and features blackened applied subdial rings at 3 and 9 o'clock, as well as 18K white gold applied indexes.

    Driven by OMEGA's Co-Axial Calibre 9300, this bold timepiece is finished with a black nylon strap that includes a new ceramic and titanium foldover clasp. The hands are diamond-polished 18K white gold, except for the central seconds hand which is polished, rhodium plated with a red tip.

    Great piece. Never met an Omega I didn't like.

          How could you not like this? Though I'd prefer it on the original strap.

            There is no dark side of the moon, in matter of fact, it’s all dark!

            Very nice.
            We already have enough youth, how about a fountain of smart?
