Quite a colorful timepiece has sprung from this latest collaboration between Omega and the “Porsche Club of America. Pre-orders are currently underway for this unique watch with an ultra-limited release. The race is on!
In essence this watch is the “Omega Grey Side of The Moon” re-imagined with a distinct color scheme to match of some Porsche automobile aesthetics. A polished ceramic ring on its case back even has an engraving that reads “Grey Side of The Moon”. They are both great timepieces, but the yellow highlights have really livened up this piece. Not to mention the sporty strap it comes attached to, bring the whole concept to life. The original non-Porsche version in its all grey delivery, comes off quite muted when compared to this version. But that’s nothing a strap change couldn’t help with, if so desired. While other may prefer the more discreet look all-grey provides. We currently have an “Omega Grey Side of The Moon” in stock at EiT, you can take a better look at it here.
As for this new “Porsche” edition the 44.25mm case is made from grey ceramic with a mixture of polished and brushed finishes and an exclusive plasma treatment. It comes with a transparent case back that allows to view the inner workings of the mechanical movement, which features a yellow engraving of the PCA (Porsche Club of America) logo.
Mounted to the case is a ceramic bezel with a tachymeter scale engrave on to it with the numerals in white and the wording in yellow. Equipped with two push-pieces that serve to operate the chronograph function, with a setting crown in between them that has features the Omega logo with a luminescent filling. Water-resistance on this timepiece can reach up to 50 meters (167 feet).
Time is exhibited on a grey dial made of ceramised titanium with large lighter hour index markers, followed by smaller white printed minute index markers with small little yellow square to further highlight the hour index markers. There are two sub-dials, keeping the “Moonwatch” aesthetic: a 12-hour counter at the 3 o’clock position and a sub-seconds dial with a yellow hand at the 9 o’clock position. The central yellow hands and the hour index markers have all undergone a luminescent coating, for an enhanced legibility. Plus a longer central white hand with a yellow tip, for the chronograph.
Underneath the Omega and “Speedmaster” logo, aligned with the 12 o’clock position is the unique number for each of these limited edition pieces. There is also a white date aperture at the 6 o’clock position. This overall color scheme is reminiscent of the high-performance carbon-ceramic brakes seen on many Porsche sports cars, which have grey brake discs and yellow calipers. Its general layout is also very similar to the recently released “Omega Speedmaster Moonwatch Automatic Master Chronometer (Ref#: 304.32.44.51.01.001) you can read our review here.
