Swatch X Omega has recently launched a new version of its MoonSwatch called "Mission to Moonshine Gold". The watch is a variation on the original design, featuring a chronograph seconds hand coated in Omega Moonshine gold, which is made of recycled gold from the Swatch Group's certified refinery. The "Mission to Moonshine Gold" watch has been added to a group of 11 bioceramic, quartz Moonswatch designs that draw inspiration from the iconic Speedmaster and is priced at only US$260, making it an affordable option for watch enthusiasts.
Experience the contrast of affordability and luxury with this captivating image of the Swatch Mission To Moonshine and the Omega Moonshine Gold-inspired watch side by side.
The production process of the MoonSwatch Mission to Moonshine Gold watch involved a unique and exclusive element, which was the manufacturing of the golden seconds hand. Swatch produced the seconds hand under a full moon in February, and each watch sold comes with a certificate that confirms this interesting fact. The certificate adds to the exclusive nature of the watch and makes it a desirable collector's item for watch enthusiasts. The Moonshine coating has a negligible impact on the price of the new MoonSwatch, increasing it by about 25 Swiss francs (US$27).
Take a closer look at the fine golden second's hand of the Swatch Mission To Moonshine.
Swatch has limited the availability of the new Mission to Moonshine Gold watch to select cities, including London, Milan, Tokyo, and Zurich. The company chose these cities because of their association with gold. For instance, London was selected because it is the location where the price of gold is fixed globally. Similarly, the Paradeplatz in Switzerland is renowned for its banks and gold reserves, making it a fitting location for the watch's launch.
Each Swatch Mission To Moonshine watch comes with a certificate confirming the exclusive production of its gold second's hand under a full moon in February.
The Swiss watch company has not revealed the exact number of watches produced for their latest MoonSwatch release. Despite the company stating that it is not a limited edition, it was only available for purchase on 7 March 2023. Due to its limited availability for purchase on a specific day, the Mission to Moonshine Gold release can be considered a limited find.
The new MoonSwatch is not available online, and it is only available for a limited time. The original MoonSwatch also cannot be purchased online. Swatch's announcement has generated significant interest among watch enthusiasts, although many people may be unable to purchase the watch due to the limited availability of this product.
