Omega’s Dark Side Of The Moon Watch Collection

Ticking away the moments that make up a dull day won't seem quite so tedious with one of these on your wrist.

Following the success of its 2013 "Dark Side of the Moon" Speedster, Omega has introduced a four-piece collection of brooding timepieces that draws its inspiration from the adventures of the Apollo 8 astronauts, who were the first to orbit the Moon and return home safely; becoming the first humans to directly see the far side of the moon. 

The Black Black is, appropriately, the dark lead of the series, with a polished, brushed black ceramic casement and dial partnered by a black nylon strap. The lunar themes slip in on the 'Moonwatch-style' hands of the face and sub-dials. 

The Sedna Black and Pitch Black both feature ceramic cases and leather straps; the Sedna offsetting its dark features with 18k gold, while the Pitch picks out its markings with Super-LumiNova details.

The Vintage Black manages to pull off the cardinal fashion sin of mixing black and brown, with varnished hands and a leather strap.

Set to hit stores in August, you can expect each of these to sit within the region of £7,000 - £8,000.
