This is a hands-on look at one of the hottest pieces introduced at Baselworld this week, the Omega Speedmaster “Dark Side Of The Moon.”
It is the first time Omega has offered the Speedmaster in a black case. According to Omega, many years back they considered producing a case with a black PVD treatment, but with even the slightest chance that it might scratch, that just wasn’t good enough. And so instead, they eventually decided to develop their own in-house black ceramic case. A solution far superior to coating steel or titanium with a hard black coating such as Physical Vapor Deposition (PVD) or Diamond Like Carbon (DLC). The result, is the most technically advanced ceramic case on the market.
