THE OMEGA SPEEDMASTER DARK SIDE OF THE MOON ALINGHIOctober 20, 2020
OMEGA and ALINGHI are two Swiss brands with a passion for innovation and precision. As a special tribute to the ALINGHI boats that fly across the water, OMEGA has chosen the Speedmaster as the perfect watch to celebrate the partnership. This one-of-a-kind model displays some truly captivating details and is inspired by ALINGHI’s unique boat design.
“The Speedmaster’s iconic tachymeter scale has been created in Super-LumiNova, for superb visibility in dark conditions.”THE OMEGA SPEEDMASTER DARK SIDE OF THE MOON ALINGHI
Perhaps the most impressive feature is the watch’s decorated Calibre 1865, which has been revealed through a blackened skeletonised dial. The manual-winding movement is ideal for life at high speed due to its lighter and thinner design, while the superb detailing is reminiscent of ALINGHI’s sleek catamaran craftsmanship.
The alternate minute track reveals transferred red dots, while the hour markers and hour / minute hands are blackened and diamond polished. Even the screws have been blackened to match the ALINGHI logo theme. The completed movement provides a power reserve of 48 hours.
Using laser ablation, the mainplate and barrel bridge have been given a honeycomb effect, similar to the interior of the ALINGHI TF35 catamaran hull. Laser ablation also decorates all other bridges with a black carbon pattern, inspired by the material used for the boat’s hull.
“The chronograph hands are either varnished red or white, while the hour/minute hands have been blackened”
The 6 o’clock subdial features a sandblasted and anodized aluminium disc, with the ALINGHI logo transferred in red. This logo rotates when the chronograph function is used. Represented by red for passion, and black for technology, the team’s logo is inspired by two boats churning the seas before a match race.
“The 44.25 mm watch case is crafted from black zirconium oxide ceramic.”
ALINGHI is today associated with the TF35 Trophy and the GC32 Racing Tour. The Swiss team joined OMEGA in 2019, and this special watch pays tribute to the Swiss partnership. For those who love sailing, or just beautiful ceramic designs, the unique features demand a closer look.
