We’re not talking about fossil fuels, but of the trend for 2022. Fashion, furnishings, lifestyle: the color green trend. And Omega is joining in, as are other watchmakers. Every Maison, in fact, seems to have launched at least one green model; a sort of giant ticking mechanical forest of infinite shades ranging from sage to English green, passing through forest green.
Among all of them, we decided to focus on a model as peculiar and rare as it is fascinating. The reference with the very long number – 310.60.42.50.10.001 – tells nothing about its qualities, but the images will do much more. This is an unexpected version of the Moonwatch with a green livery, embellished with a Moonshine gold case and details, an OMEGA exclusive.

The OMEGA Speedmaster Moonwatch Moonshine gold 310.60.42.50.10.001
Such a watch seems really at odds with the Speedmaster. A practical, precise watch that used to mark speed intervals, taking on such a famous livery and becoming a luxury item, is undoubtedly an unusual variation on the theme.
The difference comes from the Moonshine gold case and bracelet, an innovative gold alloy with a softer color than classic yellow gold, created in 2018 and inspired by the moon’s brightness. And what watch could be more fitting than the one that’s actually been to the Moon?
The OMEGA Speedmaster Professional Moonwatch
This edition of the Moonwatch is a special version of the original Moonwatch, with a few differences. For example, the Omega Speedmaster 310.60.42.50.10.001 mounts an extremely modern movement in this precious version, the Omega coaxial caliber 3861. It is a hand-wound movement certified as a Master Chronometer by METAS, offering an impressive 50 hours of power reserve. Its free-floating silicon hairspring can withstand magnetic fields of up to 15,000 gauss. You can watch this technical masterpiece ticking through the porthole of the exposed caseback.
A symphony of green and gold
The 42mm Moonglow gold case showcases an English green Cerachrom bezel, which complements the matching dial. The gold indices and hands stand out like precious little jewels, thanks to white accents covered in SuperLuminova, for an effect of great charm and elegance. The Omega Speedmaster 310.60.42.50.10.001 is available with a five-link bracelet with a polished satin finish or a simple and elegant crocodile strap. Omegawatches.com
