Yes, it’s another Speedmaster, but this one is the Dark Side Of The Moon, which was quite controversial when it came out. (Interestingly, the Moon doesn’t actually have a “dark side,” it does have a far side that’s never visible, as the same side always faces the Earth.) Featuring an all-black ceramic case, this watch really sent ripples through the purist circles (just see Ben’s thoughts here). With its high tech case, and co-axial escapement-equipped caliber 9300, it’s definitely not a Moonwatch but despite its divisiveness we loved it anyway, and did a full Week On The Wrist with it.
