As promised by the Swatch teaser over the weekend, the MoonSwatch “Mission to Moonshine Gold” is available today at Swatch stores in London, Milan, Tokyo, or Zurich.
The MoonSwatch Moonshine Gold edition features the exact same design as the original MoonSwatch Mission to the Moon, including a gray 42 mm x 13.25 mm (47.5 mm lug-to-lug) bioceramic case and black dial with white accent colors and a black strap. All that’s changed is the addition of an 18K yellow gold-plated (Moonshine gold) chronograph center second hand, a new box, and a Full Moon Production Certificate.
Each of the 18K gold chronograph second hands were produced under a full moon in the month of February and comes with a certificate attesting to this. The certificate and gold hand result in a price that’s about $25 higher than the existing $260 MoonSwatches, though, being only available in London, Milan, Tokyo, or Zurich, there’s no official US price.
