This captivating model has been hotly anticipated by Moonwatch fans since November 2023, when the very first edition was spotted on the wrist of OMEGA brand ambassador, Daniel Craig, at the Planet OMEGA Exhibition in New York. Now, the design is finally and officially revealed, and will be available for public sale.

The watch’s most distinctive feature is its rare white dial. When the original Speedmaster was first created in 1957, one of the main goals of the designers was to produce an easy-to-read display with superb legibility. Hence, the white hands and indexes on a black dial. On this new version, the opposite colourway has the same result. Not only has OMEGA produced this new dial in white with black detailing and new applied indexes, but the designers have also added a stand-out Speedmaster name in red, and given the entire surface a glossy lacquered finish – the first time this technique has ever been used on the Moonwatch’s step dial.

The white dial version is a little more expensive than the existing black dial sapphire sandwich equivalent – probably on the account of the applied hour markers and the lacquer finish.  It is (currently?) available only in the sapphire sandwich configuration, which makes perfect sense since the purists would probably bay for blood if there is a white dial hesalite version.

Word on Reddit is that this watch is already waitlisted in a few countries, so good luck to everyone (including us here at TBC because we also want to get our hands on it)!
