The White Dial

Apart from the striking dial and hands, this new iteration remains identical to its counterpart featuring sapphire crystals and boasting the precision of the Master Chronometer-certified 3861 chronograph movement, it retains the iconic aluminium Dot Over Ninety bezel and maintains the classic 42mm case size. The bracelet is adorned with polished intermediate links, staying true to the original design. While the internals remain unchanged, the real star of the show is undoubtedly the captivating dial.

Drawing inspiration from astronaut suits and the legendary ALASKA I prototype of 1969 watch, the white dial features striking black accents and boasts a sleek lacquered finish. This marks a historic moment for Moonwatch enthusiasts as it is the first time a step dial on a Moonwatch has been adorned with such a glossy touch.

The vibrant red Speedmaster logo and the accent on the seconds hand create a striking contrast against the pristine white dial. Drawing inspiration from the protective case of the ALASKA I watch and the iconic red Commander stripes adorning astronaut suits, these design elements add a bold and distinctive touch to the timepiece.
