Omega X Swatch Has a New MoonSwatch Mission: The Moonphase With Snoopy

Omega X Swatch MoonSwatch Mission to the Moonphase featuring the beloved Peanuts character Snoopy is the 23th piece in the coveted Mission to the Moon collection.

The Moonphase is so named because it has a moon phase function — a first in a chronograph by Swatch. Before this watch, Omega X Swatch collaboration produced 11 Bioceramic MoonSwatch models, depicting the planets, and 11 Mission to Moonshine Gold models.

The new mission to the moon by Omega X Swatch MoonSwatch is in an all-white colour. Snoopy is perhaps the main highlight of the Moonphase. The lovable anthropomorphic beagle created by Charles M. Schulz is seen lying on his back on the moon in the moon phase disc at the subdial at 2 o’clock.

Omega X Swatch also added a quote from Snoopy’s comic strip on the moon phase mask and disc, which is visible only under UV light. The battery cover also features a moon inspired by Snoopy’s world.

Snoopy’s association with the moon goes back to the 1960s when the character was picked as NASA’s mascot. Individuals and organisations are honoured with the Silver Snoopy Award by the agency for outstanding achievements related to human flight safety or mission success.

Omega received the prize in 1970 for its role in the history of space exploration, including its essential contribution to bringing the crew of Apollo 13 back home safe and sound.

Features of the watch

The Omega X Swatch MoonSwatch Mission to the Moonphase has all the main features of the original Speedmaster Moonwatch. It has the asymmetrical case, the tachymeter-scaled bezel with the dot over the 90 and the typical Speedmaster subdials.

The indexes, hour and minute hands and the tip of the chronograph seconds hand feature Grade A Super-LumiNova that glow in the dark.

The caseback features a mission statement. Logos of Omega and Swatch are on the dial and crown, and the Velcro strap looks spacesuit-ready.
