Here are four new versions of Omega's wildly popular Dark Side of the Moon (DSOTM). What was once a single watch has now been expanded into a full collection, so here they are.
Speedmaster Dark Side of the Moon Black Black
Here's Batman's watch! This is a black-out version of the DSOTM. From the lume to the, well, everything. The watch would look at home on a stealth bomber, or (like I said before) Batman's wrist. FYI, I didn't make up the name "Black Black" that is Omega's branding. The case, similar it predecessor, is both brushed and polished ceramic. The watch is 44.25mm in diameter, a trait which is shared across all four of the new watches. Another shared feature is the movement, which is Omega's caliber 9300.
Speedmaster Dark Side of the Moon Sedna Gold
This is my personal favorite in the new collection. The gold adds a little bit of color to an otherwise blacked-out watch. Unlike the Black Black, the Sednam Black has a completely brushed case with a Sedna gold ring circling the bezel. Sedna gold is also used to create the hands and markers. The strap is black leather. Overall, a nice-looking watch that walks the fine line between sporty and classy.
Speedmaster Dark Side of the Moon Pitch Black
This version is the most similar to the original. Unlike the preceding two watches, this one has a far more legible dial (especially concerning the chronograph seconds and subdial as well as the running seconds). The case is the same as the original too, with a mix of polished and brushed finishes. I'd be interested to see what this watch looks like in the dark. When it hits stores in August of this year (along with the other new DSOTM watches), I'll attempt to take some pictures.
Speedmaster Dark Side of the Moon Vintage Black
The final new Dark Side of the Moon, this watch is basically the same as the pitch black, but has beige lume to add a vintage feel. Similar to the new Speedmaster '57 also released this year. There are no notable changes from the others. You can find the information for all four watches on Omega's website here.
