Swatch has collaborated with Omega to imagine an innovative Swatch take on the Speedmaster Moonwatch. Owned by the same parent company, the brands have drawn their design inspiration from space, to create a collection of eleven Swatch models named after planetary bodies, from the giant star at the centre of the solar system to the dwarf planet at its periphery.
All of the Swatch designs are in the brand’s patented BIOCERAMIC, a unique mix of two-thirds ceramic and one-third material derived from castor oil. Although colors like pink and pale blue offer strong clues that these are not your standard Omega Speedmaster watches, a hard-core Moonwatch fan would be hard-pushed to find the difference in the overall look. The key Moonwatch design features are all there. The asymmetrical case, the famous tachymeter scale with dot over ninety and the distinctive Speedmaster subdials, which all work perfectly.
The new collection comes in rarely seen colours. Each MoonSwatch feature its own mission statement, inspirational engravings and joint OMEGA X SWATCH logos on the dial and crown. The battery cover on each watch features a depiction of its planet. A spacesuit-ready VELCRO© strap adds a final touch of astronaut chic.
TheChicGeek says, "Take me to the moon, and let me fly amongst the planets...This is one of the best watch collabs. I've seen. It's out of this world and, as such, will be a sell out!"
