This spring’s event collab

Nobody expected it and they did it! Mission accomplished for Swatch and Omega, which are offering a brilliant collection of eleven bioceramic watches named after the different planets in our solar system. Called “MoonSwatch”, these new editions combine the iconic design of the Speedmaster Moonwatch with the pop and colorful universe of Swatch.

Swatch x Omega, the fusion of two worlds

In mission mode Sun, Mercury, Venus, Earth, Moon, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune and Pluto, the variations display the characteristics of the Speedmaster Moonwatch.

Indeed, the asymmetrical case, the tachymetric scale with its traditional dot positioned above the number 90 and the distinctive counters typical of the Speedmaster Moonwatch are well present.

…and its tachymetric scale with the traditional dot on the number 90.

Made from Swatch’s flagship material, bioceramic – a mix of 2/3 ceramic and 1/3 castor oil – they feature a 42mm case with a dial protected by a glass that reveals the following special feature: an “S” hidden in the center of the crystal. The whole is contrasted with hands and indexes covered with luminescent material to read the time in the darkness of space … of your room to start!

Ultimate detail on these quartz watches, the celestial bodies that the watch represents adorns the battery cover.

Le bracelet en Velcro© de la MoonSwatch
The MoonSwatch comes with a Velcro© bracelet.

Delivered on a Velcro© strap adapted to spacesuits, they offer an excellent value for money for early adopters who cannot afford a real Speedmaster.

Slightly provocative, this partnership is a nice nod to the sometimes rather traditional watchmaking world. I’ve already chosen the colour of mine! What about you?
