Today, Omega debuted two new precious metal 18K Moonshine Gold Speedmaster Moonwatch chronographs.

First off, Moonshine gold is a trademarked 18K yellow gold alloy (created by Omega in 2019) that has a paler hue than traditional yellow gold and that has a higher resistance to fading of the color and luster over time.

Omega has developed two new versions of the Speedmaster Professional Moonwatch, in the same size 42 mm x 13.18 mm (47.5 mm lug-to-lug) case as the Moonwatches that were released in 2021 — both presented in Omega’s specially developed premium 18K yellow gold alloy.

One features an on-trend dark green (PVD treated) dial with a sunburst pattern and applied 18K Moonshine gold indices and hands, paired with either a matching solid 18K gold bracelet or a green alligator leather strap. The other features an 18K Moonshine Gold dial with applied diamond polished 18K Moonshine gold with black PVD treated indices and hands, paired with either a matching solid 18K gold bracelet or a black rubber strap.

Underneath the dial is Omega’s Master Chronometer Co-Axial caliber 3861 chronograph movement which runs at 3Hz and has a 50-hour power reserve. This is the latest version of Omega’s in-house caliber 3861 — which was first introduced during the unveiling of the new Moonwatch in January 2021.

What’s all-new for the regular production 2022 Omega Speedmaster Moonwatch Moonshine Gold variations, is that they have ceramic bezel inserts, with Omega’s Ceragold tachymeter scale with a “Dot Over Ninety.”
