A simple evolution, the Omega Speedmaster Co-Axial Chronograph Dark Side Of the Moon (debuted here) proves remarkably lovable on the wrist. In a glossy black ceramic case with matching black ceramic dial, the “Moonwatch” naturally borrowed the name “Dark Side Of The Moon” from such things as the actual dark side of earth’s moon, and Pink Floyd’s famous album.

Baselworld 2013: Welcome yet another Omega Speedmaster for you Omega fans out there. It seems several items to be unveiled at Baselworld were posted on Omega’s site yesterday a bit prematurely and quickly taken down…
Seems that enough information has gotten out, that I think Omega knows they have something really special to tease Omega fans everywhere. The new Omega Speedmaster Moonwatch is coming, and from the way things look, it’s one pretty watch…
We get asked for advice on buying watches all year long but we can’t answer everyone. If you still aren’t sure what watches should be on your shopping list this holiday season, let’s see what the aBlogtoWatch writing team has to say.
I am very much a “watch guy”. If you’re reading aBlogtoWatch, then chances are high that you’d consider yourself to be a member of the same club. But it’s worth noting that within our niche group of horologically inclined individuals, there are several sub-categories of watch enthusiasts.
The iconic Omega Speedmaster watch has a black dial with white hands and markers.

Using the newer and larger Speedmaster Moonwatch Co-Axial Chronograph with the in-house made caliber 9300 movement family, the [...]
More than an icon, more than a legend, the Omega Speedmaster is one of the most popular and desired watches around the world…
It did not surprise me that Omega had one of the strongest collections of new watches for 2012. While most of my attention was on the new Spacemaster Z-33, the Speedmaster family had some line extensions that were really satisfying. The ones that stole the show are the newest Speedmaster Racing models. These are not [...]
“Watch What-If” is a special column on aBlogtoRead.com that asks the playful question “what if an iconic watch you know and love was offered in a different style?” The idea embraces a good timepiece’s core design and has fun by offering new colors and material concepts to stimulate your senses. These ideas may be provocative, [...]

Following up on that, I’d like to share a bit more of my passion for all timekeepers vintage by presenting a “state of the market” article. My personal interest, and the [...]
Back from Baselworld 2011 we discuss some of the show highlights (and quirks). On list is the Harry Winston Opus Eleven (that John loves), and a few other watches such as the Porsche Design P’6520 Compass Heritage and new Omega Speedmaster pieces (that John needs to be school about). Listen to the HourTime Show watch [...]
The end of Baselworld is like coming down off a really brutal high. The intense energy of the show is only matched by how busy you are. Nights are filled with long European style dinners that take forever, but go by quickly as the conversation is engaging. Watch lovers can be themselves – this is [...]
Wow, this is the Omega Speedmaster watch that I want… really want. For 2011 Omega has created the perfect Speedmaster for me. Did they have me in mind when making it? Not likely, but let me tell you what I personally like about it and why I think this is one of the most compelling [...]
