Welcome to our review of the Omega Speedmaster Dark Side Of The Moon watch. The Omega watch brand was the first watch on the moon in 1969. Just pause a moment to let that sink in. The first wristwatch on the moon. That can never be taken away or beaten. This version of the Speedmaster, the dark side of the moon, is so named in honour of that moment and because the black watch design relates to the dark side of our lunar orb.
The Omega Speedmaster was the first watch worn by an astronaut walking on the Moon during the Apollo 11 mission.
