OMEGA and ALINGHI celebrate their
partnership with a brand new Speedmaster
New version of Dark Side of the Moon
The dynamic partnership between OMEGA and ALINGHI has brought the very best of Swiss precision, innovation and pioneering spirit together. In tribute to this unique sailing collaboration, a brand new OMEGA timepiece has now been launched.
The Speedmaster Dark Side of the Moon ALINGHI is a watch that demonstrates the same values and qualities that both partners share.
The choice of Speedmaster perfectly reflects the fast boats that fly across the water. Perhaps most impressive is the watch’s expertly decorated Calibre 1865. The manual-winding movement is ideal for sailing crews due to its lighter and thinner design. To enhance the movement, OMEGA has taken inspiration from ALINGHI’s new TF35 catamaran. Using laser ablation, the mainplate and barrel bridge have been given a honeycomb effect, similar to the interior of the ALINGHI boat’s carbon hull. The same laser ablation technology has then been employed to decorate all other bridges with a black carbon pattern, also inspired by the carbon that is used for the boat’s hull.
For the overall colour coding, OMEGA has matched the watch with the ALINGHI logo, which includes red to represent passion, and black for technology. This can be seen through features such as the perforated black and red rubber strap, as well as the 44.25 mm case in black zirconium oxide ceramic. Along with a tachymeter scale in Super-LumiNova, the outward design is also notable for the ALINGHI logo on the stop/start pusher, which has been created in red varnish.
OMEGA and ALINGHI formed their partnership in 2019, and have already enjoyed racing success thanks to the team’s GC32 world title in June 2019, D35 Trophy win in September and GC32 championship in November.
Finally, please feel free to go through the OMEGA Website, it has created a dedicated product page and a story on this “Swiss Connection”.
