NEW FRON­TIERS

The Peak (Malaysia) - - Pursuits • Horology -

Be­fore the Omega Speed­mas­ter took on its lu­nar as­so­ci­a­tions – due to its sta­tus as NASA’s watch of choice in its space mis­sions – it was known for be­ing a top sports and mo­tor-rac­ing chrono­graph. The new Speed mas­ter“Dark Side of the Moon” Apollo 8 pays homage to the Apollo 8 crew, who were the first peo­ple to see the dark side of the moon in 1968. The 44.25mm ce­ramic watch fea­tures the hand-wound Cal­i­bre 1869, which has been black­ened and laser-ab­lated on both sides to rep­re­sent the lu­nar sur­face.
