Omega introduced another Speedmaster Dark Side of the Moon that is the aftereffect of its partnership with the Alinghi cruising group.
The two incredibly famous Swiss brands combined their energy for development and performance to create a Speedmaster timepiece that is perfectly in accordance with the plan, the colors and the materials characterizing a too quick Alinghi boat that flies across the water.
The 44.25 mm x 13.80 mm case of the Speedmaster Dark Side of the Moon Alinghi is altogether made of black zirconium oxide ceramic. The black overwhelming the watch is contrasted by red, a color which is often associated to enthusiasm and energy.
Alongside a tachymetre scale in Super-LumiNova, the outward plan is likewise remarkable for the Alinghi logo on the stop/start pusher, which has been created in red varnish. Red is utilized for tachymetre word just as for the stitching and the interior elastic section of the punctured black leather lash.
A scratch‑resistant sapphire crystal with anti‑reflective treatment on both sides protects the dial which repeats the black and red theme.
At 3 o’clock, the 30-minute chronograph counter is enhanced by a 4-moment or 5-minute tactical time show in red, helping with precision on the water.
At 6 o’clock, the customary plan of the 12-hour chronograph counter has been replaced with a sandblasted and anodized aluminum circle, which includes the Alinghi logo moved in red. The team’s logo addresses the letter “a” and is roused by two boats churning the oceans before the beginning of a match race. The logo pivots on the watch when the chronograph function is utilized.
At long last, at 9 o’clock, we discover the openworked running seconds subdial.
The background is overwhelmed by a black carbon design, propelled by the carbon that is utilized for the boat’s hull, for certain cuts to uncover surfaces decorated with a honeycomb effect or looks at the development underneath.
Noticeable through the sapphire crystal caseback, the blackened and decorated adaptation of the Caliber 1861 – here called 1865 – isn’t less astonishing than the dial. Beating at 21,600 vibrations each hour, this light and thin hand-wound development offers a force save of 48 hours.
Utilizing laser removal, the mainplate and barrel connect have been given a honeycomb effect while any remaining extensions are embellished by a black carbon design.
Water impervious to 5 bar (50 meters/167 feet), the Omega Speedmaster Dark Side of the Moon Alinghi ref. 3188.8.131.52.01.002 has a price of Euro 10,300 (incl. Tank)/US$ 10,800 (excl. deals charges). omegawatches.com
