Reach for the Moon with Omega’s latest Speedmaster

Ahead of Baselworld later this month, Omega has revealed a new Speedmaster – the Chronograph Moonphase Master Chronometer…

As its name suggests, the most notable addition to this timepiece is the Moon-phase aperture at 6 o’clock, housing an incredibly accurate Moon illustration. It is flanked by date and 12-hour chronograph register sub-dials, both embedded slightly below the surface of the deep-blue dial. Movement-wise, the watch features the new in-house 9904 calibre, comprising 368 components and boasting the acclaimed new METAS certification. At 44mm, this Speedmaster is a larger watch, but with an attractive colour scheme, one of Omega’s finest movements, and a novel new Moon-phase complication, it’s a very attractive proposition. It’ll cost CHF 9,400 when it hits the stores later this year, following its debut at Baselworld 2016.
