George Clooney has been nominated for Oscars in more categories than anyone else. A committed humanitarian, George was named a UN Special Messenger of Peace. OMEGA watches have long been a Clooney family tradition; George also shares the brand’s passion for space exploration and showcases the inspiration for the Speedmaster Moonphase timepiece collection.
As well as beautifully measuring every moment on Earth; this collection follows the phases of the moon, which makes perfect sense given that the Speedmaster was the first watch ever to be worn on the lunar surface. As a Master Chronometer, the Moonphase celebrates another pioneering moment: OMEGA’s exacting new standard of testing set by METAS.
The bold use of colour gives each Moonphase its distinctive look. Along with an opaline silvery dial model, there are also dials in sun-brushed black brown, blue or grey. The ceramic bezels also provide plenty of attractive options in black, brown, blue and green. The cases are in stainless steel, 18K yellow gold or 18K Sedna™ gold and the twin two-handed subdials give the watches a beautifully symmetrical look.
On stainless steel models, the image of the moon is as detailed as a NASA photograph. This has been obtained by a special microstructuring technique on a metallic crystal disc. Look closer and you can even see an added astronaut’s footprint.
