    Only thing letting it down for me is the strap / lug, for me it needed to be curved for a tight fit against the case but apart form that, stunning !!

    Hope to see it at Basel this weekend !!

    That looks really sweet! Omega keeps making my decision of which Speedy to buy more difficult.

    Nice. Didn't think I was going to say that but it is way better than most other black cased watches.

    Half a dozen links to next weeks releases were taken down this morning.
    It's on the other thread but here's the page blurb anyway.

    OMEGA Watches: BASELWORLD 2013 - The Speedmaster in black ceramic

    The black zirconium oxide ceramic dial, complemented by a matching ceramic 44.25 mm case with a brushed and polished ceramic casebody, features striking 18K white gold applied indexes as well as two blackened sub-dials that distinguish the timepiece from its legendary predecessor, OMEGA’s “Moonwatch”.

    These two sub-dials are made possible by the innovative placement of the 12-hour and 60-minute counters on the same sub-dial at the 3 o’clock position, allowing a comfortable and intuitive chronograph reading.

    There is a small seconds sub-dial located at 9 o’clock and a date window at 6 o’clock. The hour and minute Moonwatch-style hands are fashioned from 18K white gold, as are the hands found on both sub-dials; the central chronograph hand is rhodium plated and features a red tip for increased visibility of recorded seconds. Super-LumiNova coats the two dots at 12 and the hour, minute and chronograph hands ensuring that the wearing can read the time in a variety of lighting conditions.

    Protecting this prominent dial is a box-form scratch-resistant sapphire crystal with anti-reflective treatment on both sides.

    The matt chromium nitride tachymeter scale – among the most identifiable design features of the Speedmaster – stands out on the polished ceramic bezel. The two polished ceramic chronograph control pushers on the case function totally independently – accordingly, there is no risk to the chronograph mechanism as a result of inadvertent manipulation.

    This unique timepiece is presented on a highly durable black Cordura® fabric strap complete with a black ceramic buckle. The timepiece is water resistant to 5 bar (50 metres / 167 feet).

    Powered by the incredibly advanced in-house movement, the OMEGA Co-Axial calibre 9300, and equipped with a Si14 silicon balance spring, this Speedmaster is offered with a full four-year warranty.

    The dark side of the moon
    Engraved on the polished ceramic caseback in matt chromium nitride, above the bevelled scratch-resistant sapphire crystal, are the words “DARK SIDE OF THE MOON” – an appropriate tribute to this Speedmaster’s heritage and its bold black design.

    Building upon our past’s great legends
    With a design that recalls the same watch that accompanied astronauts to the moon on all six lunar missions, this model is a welcome addition to the family and one that upholds the bold Speedmaster name. It is sure to find a strong following among Speedmaster fans and watch enthusiasts who want to combine the impressive legacy of a remarkable chronograph with the best series-produced mechanical watch movement in the world.
