Marking the first collaboration between Swatch and Omega, their Bioceramic MoonSwatch is a budget friendly take on Omega’s original Speedmaster (which was the first watch to visit the moon, hitching a ride with Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin during the Apollo 11 mission in July 1969).
Whilst the original houses an automatic movement and is prices in the thousands, the Omega x Swatch MoonSwatch is quartz and priced around £218.
Showcased here is the 42mm Mission to the Moon, which is steel grey and finished with a black velcro strap. All the watches are Bioceramic, feature a tachymeter, and use glow-in-the-dark superluminova on the seconds hands and hour markers so you can keep track of your insomnia at night time.
The MoonSwatch collection features a total of 11 space-inspired watches which can only officially be bought directly from an IRL Swatch shop. Well worth a buy if you’re lucky enough to find them in stock. Alternatively, you’ll be able to get one through a reseller… but only if you’re happy to pay their premium.
Geek out on the go. Geek out in style. Geek out underwater. The Casio DBC-611G-1D, also known as the Casio Databank 50 Telememo, with its stainless steel band is water resistant up to 30 meters. It has all the added extras you’d expect to find on a watch like this; a stopwatch, alarm, backlight, oh, and of course, a calculator.
The Timex IQ+ Move is Timex’s answer to fitness tracking, matching enhanced analogue functionality with expert watchmaking. The smart looking and discrete case has some great technology to keep tabs on your daily activity, like steps, distance, calories burned and sleep metrics. You can check on your progress in the accompanying app or with a quick glance at the sub-dial on the watch face. The Timex IQ+ Move features a traditional watch battery so there’s no charging required, and the interchangeable straps allow for a deeper and more personal customisation while the 50 meter water resistance means you don’t have to worry about taking it into the shower or for a swim in the pool.
The Runwell Moon Phase Watch in Rose Gold by Shinola is a beautiful timepiece running on the Argonite 708.1 movement that’s made from Swiss and other imported parts. The Runwell Moon Phase is delicately put together in Shinola’s Detroit factory by highly skilled craftspeople who are trained to use the utmost precision. Its 41mm case is made from stainless steel with PVD rose gold plating, each laser etched on the back with a unique serial number. The glass is double curve sapphire crystal which is second only to diamond in hardness, and the strap is Genuine Alligator made by Hadley-Roma with American Leather. The most interesting part of this watch, however, is the added moon dial to track all four lunar phases.
