Swatch x Omega’s Moonphase Watch features a Bioceramic Case and a Familiar NASA Mascot

Space exploration continues to capture our imagination, and the world of watches is no exception. Swatch’s latest collaboration with Omega, the Bioceramic MoonSwatch Mission To The Moonphase, takes inspiration from the cosmos, offering a unique and playful twist on a classic timepiece.

Designers: Swatch & Omega

The all-white aesthetic evokes the brilliance of a full moon. But the real innovation lies in the combination of a chronograph function, a first for the MoonSwatch line, and a moon phase display. This ingenious pairing allows you to track both earthly time and the lunar cycle on your wrist.

Adding a touch of whimsy to this sophisticated timepiece is none other than Snoopy, NASA’s beloved mascot. Snoopy makes his appearance nestled on the moon phase disc, a subtle tribute to the “Snoopy” Apollo 10 lunar module. For true fans, a hidden quote from the Snoopy comics is revealed under UV light, adding a delightful layer of discovery.

The Bioceramic MoonSwatch Mission To The Moonphase isn’t just about aesthetics; it’s crafted with sustainability in mind. Swatch’s Bioceramic material, a blend of ceramic and castor oil-based bioplastic, offers a durable and lightweight option for environmentally conscious watch enthusiasts.

Beyond the innovative materials, the watch boasts several features that echo the original Omega Speedmaster Moonwatch. The asymmetrical case, the iconic tachymeter bezel, and the chronograph subdials all pay homage to this legendary timepiece. Completing the space-ready look is a Velcro strap, ensuring a comfortable and secure fit for any adventure.

With a water resistance of 3 bar and a playful case back featuring Snoopy’s paw print, the Bioceramic MoonSwatch Mission To The Moonphase is a watch that’s both functional and fun. Available from March 26th in select Swatch stores for a price of around US$310, this non-limited edition watch makes the coveted Moonwatch experience accessible to a wider audience. It’s a stellar collaboration that proves that innovative design and playful touches can coexist in a timepiece that’s both stylish and sophisticated.
