tribute to the legendary OMEGA Speedmaster design. Throughout the months of 2023, the collection was given a radiant twist in the form of the“Mission to Moonshine Gold” versions. These 11 watches each feature a seconds hand coated in 18K Moonshine ™ Gold a distinctive alloy created in house at OMEGA that offers a more subtle and long lasting form of yellow gold.
