Mission accomplished…

by Christian Lavery


It’s no easy task to improve on the design of a watch that has accompanied astronauts to the moon on all six lunar missions. But when Swiss watchmaker


introduced its newest addition to the Speedmaster family, the result was a darker, bolder (and dare we say better?) timepiece.

All-black and taking on a sleek and sporty silhouette, “The Dark Side of the Moon” rendition of the Moonwatch Professional features a case, bezel, and dial that are all machined out of a single block of black ceramic. Striking 18K white gold accents complement the watch's overall dark appearance while the matt chromium nitride tachymeter scale stands out from the polished ceramic bezel.
