Meet the Omega x Swatch MoonSwatch Mission to the Moonphase with a Special Guest – Drumroll Please – Snoopy

Just two weeks after the announcement of the unlimited Omega Speedmaster with a white lacquer dial and one and a half months after the auction of eleven sets of the Omega x Swatch MoonSwatch Moonshine Gold for Orbis International in collaboration with Sotheby’s, the next chapter in the unparalleled success story of the Moonwatch, the Moonswatch and the collaboration between Omega and Swatch, begins. First started two years ago, the growing legacy continues with the Bioceramic MoonSwatch Mission to the Moonphase.

This time, beloved Snoopy and a moon-phase-indication have their entrance on the dial, hence the name of this quartz-driven chronograph, which is presented in an entirely white 42mm bioceramic case, with the monochromatic style extending to the push pieces, the dial and onto the Velcro strap.

Crafted from Swatch’s Bioceramic, the MoonSwatch Mission to the Moonphase is another nod to Omega and its legendary Speedmaster Moonwatch, with Snoopy being part of the moon-phase disc positioned at 2 o’clock. The famous cartoon character is comfortably lying on a crescent moon, accompanied by tiny stars and a hidden quote that comes to life in a cool blue glow under UV light: “I can’t sleep without a night light!”.

Snoopy has been NASA’s mascot since 1968. In 1970, Omega received the prestigious “Silver Snoopy Award” from the astronauts at NASA. The distinction recognized Omega’s unique contributions to space exploration, as well as the Speedmaster’s role in saving the Apollo 13 crew.

All of the signature features of the original Speedmaster Moonwatch, the first watch to go to the moon in 1969, are brought to life by this timepiece: the asymmetrical case, the tachymeter-scaled bezel with the dot over the 90 and the typically recessed sub dials for the chronograph counters and subsidiary seconds.

The Bioceramic MoonSwatch Mission to the Moonphase will be available exclusively at Swatch boutiques from March 26 and priced at approximately $310.

    Incorrect reference to space shuttle – Apollo was long before the NASA Space Shuttle.

    Also wondering what “technique” failed; Onboard timers weren’t usable so the Omega chronograph was used to time the burn.

  2. Oh look another Swatch I’m never gonna be able to get
    because Swatch reviews to sell online. Great Job Swatch.

    The statement “This prestigious distinction was awarded to Omega in 1970 for bringing the crew of Apollo 13 back home safe and sound when the technique aboard the space shuttle didn’t work and a Speedmaster watch helped to time the safe return of the crew safely into the Earth’s atmosphere.” is not accurate and is awkwardly worded: What “technique” is being referred to? Also “space shuttle” is not properly used here, Apollo was long before the U.S. space shuttles flew.
