Omega’s Moonphase Range Offers Investment Potential

Omega is celebrating the Lunar New Year with new variations on its Speedmaster Moonwatch. There’s a blue case and black dial, all blue, steel case with blue dial, plus all black colourways to choose from. Co-axial movement inside, moonphase calendar complete with miniature moons inside the crescent cut-out. Impressive detailing. The range starts at £9600, going up to £12,900.

Here’s the word from Omega on the all blue variant;

Taking the spirit of exploration a step further, this “Blue Side of the Moon” takes its names from the colour of the dark blue sky. The 44.25 mm watch features a blue ceramic case complemented by a blue ceramic bezel ring with Liquidmetal™ tachymeter scale. It is presented on a blue leather strap with a blue ceramic, ceramised titanium foldover clasp.

The blue ceramic dial includes 18K white gold indexes and hands. At 6 o’clock is the accurate Moonphase indication, which features a blue ceramic moonphase disc with near and far sides of the moon in LiquidMetal™.

Powering the timepiece is the OMEGA Co-Axial Master Chronometer 9904, which has been officially certified by METAS.

Verdict; Has to be on the list of potential investment watches, which might keep pace with inflation long term. Or might not. But you have a classic Swiss watch that countless buyers and pre-owned dealers will always make an offer on in the future.  This model range mixes the traditional plain white on black vibe of the Moonwatch with very pleasing blue dial and case variations. In short, it has more appeal than the classic Moonwatch which pretty much looks the same as it did 40 years ago.

There are plenty of 12K watches where you will find few takers unless you really chop the PX price down, you can lose 70% of RRP. So Omega is the safer choice when spending that sort of cash.
