Omega X Swatch Bioceramic MoonSwatch
Joint Mission: Launch of the Bioceramic MoonSwatch
The design partnership, a first for Omega and Swatch, follows the popular trend of collaborations between luxury and street brands to create innovative new products that blend the best of both worlds. For Omega, the joint mission is both a fun undertaking and a respectful nod to the plucky company that risked it all to kick-start the ailing Swiss watch industry during the quartz revolution.
The brands have drawn their design inspiration from space, to create a collection of eleven Swatches named after planetary bodies, from the giant star at the centre of the solar system to the dwarf planet at its periphery.
All of the Swatches are in Bioceramic, a unique mix of two-thirds ceramic and one-third material derived from castor oil. Although colours like pink and pale blue offer strong clues that these are not your standard Speedmaster watches, a hard-core Moonwatch fan would be hard-pushed to find the difference in the overall look. The key Moonwatch design features are all there. The asymmetrical case, the famous tachymeter scale with dot over ninety and the distinctive Speedmaster subdials, which all work perfectly.
For Omega President and CEO Mr. Raynald Aeschlimann,
the new collection is a source of pride. Omega’s long and distinguished history may have been cut short if it wasn’t for the vision and the courage taken by Swatch. The MoonSwatch collection salutes the saviours of our industry in a witty and accessible way. The Swatches are perfect for budding Moonwatch fans and I can’t think of a more appropriate icon for our shared project. We went to the moon, now we’re exploring the whole Milky Way. They’re great watches, in fantastic colours and they make me smile.”
The new collection, in rarely seen colours, is all about giving Omega’s professional timepiece a playful twist. Each MoonSwatch features its own mission statement, inspirational engravings and joint Omega X Swatch logos on the dial and crown. The battery cover on each watch features a depiction of its planet.
A spacesuit-ready Velcro© strap adds a final touch of astronaut chic.
For those wishing to “Reach for the Planets”
a MoonSwatch is a great way to lighten up for the journey. The Swatches are only available in selected Swatch stores from 26th

These playful tributes to the planets celebrate the collaboration between the plucky company that saved the Swiss Watchmaking industry and the iconic maker of the Speedmaster Moonwatch. What takes this collection into orbit is the fusion of the most innovative Swatch Bioceramic material with the key Omega Speedmaster Moonwatch design elements. There’s the asymmetrical case, the iconic ’dot over ninety’ on the tachymeter scale and the distinctive Speedmaster subdials.
All dials feature the Omega X Swatch branding, the iconic Speedmaster logo and the new MoonSwatch logo. A closer look at the glass construction reveals the “hidden” ’S‘
integrated in the centre of the crystal. The circular pattern on the dial’s outer ring and subdials brings a refined touch to the design, complementing the sharp and smooth lugs construction. The hours, minutes, chronograph seconds hands and hour markers sport Super-LumiNova for a perfect glow in the dark.
The caseback on each Bioceramic Moonswatch is printed with the mission text and features intergated wording sure to inspire. “DREAM BIG – FLY HIGH – EXPLORE THE UNIVERSE – REACH FOR THE PLANETS.”
Every battery cover on the back has an image of the planetary body that inspires the design.
