Swatch/Omega enthusiasts and space aficionados, get ready to embark on a lunar journey with the latest addition to Swatch's innovative lineup: the Bioceramic MoonSwatch Mission to the Moonphase – New Moon featuring Snoopy. Following the successful launch of the Mission to the Moonphase series, Swatch is now unveiling the all-black New Moonswatch, celebrating the enigmatic charm of the new moon phase.

In a nod to the iconic collaboration with OMEGA, which debuted two years ago, Swatch introduces not one but two new non-limited models dedicated to lunar exploration. The New Moon model features a striking black moon phase disc adorned with Snoopy catching some zzz's, encapsulated within a black semi-transparent mask to symbolize the mystery of the new moon.

Available exclusively at selected Swatch stores starting April 8, the Bioceramic MoonSwatch Mission to the Moonphase – New Moon continues the tradition of limited purchases to ensure widespread availability. Each person can purchase only one watch per day per store, maintaining the exclusivity of this remarkable timepiece.


Crafted with meticulous attention to detail, the New Moon watch boasts a subdial at 2 o'clock where Snoopy, NASA's beloved mascot, lounges atop the moon phase. But there's more to discover – under UV light, a hidden quote from a Snoopy comic strip emerges amidst crescent moons and stars, adding a whimsical touch to this celestial timepiece.

Drawing inspiration from OMEGA's illustrious history in space exploration, the New Moon watch pays homage to the Silver Snoopy Award, a prestigious honor bestowed upon individuals and organizations for exceptional contributions to human flight safety or mission success. OMEGA's pivotal role in the Apollo 13 mission, highlighted by the use of the Speedmaster Moonwatch to time critical maneuvers, solidifies its place in space history.


Continuing the narrative of space exploration, the New Moon model joins its predecessor, the Full Moon, which is already available at selected Swatch stores. Both watches are crafted from Swatch's patented Bioceramic, a unique blend of ceramic and bio-sourced materials, ensuring durability and sustainability.

Fans of OMEGA's legendary Speedmaster Moonwatch will find familiar elements in these Swatch creations, including the asymmetrical case, tachymeter-scaled bezel, and distinctive subdials. The caseback bears the mission statement, while the dial proudly displays the OMEGA X Swatch logos, capturing the essence of this remarkable collaboration.


With its space-ready VELCRO© strap and moon-inspired design, the Bioceramic MoonSwatch Mission to the Moonphase – New Moon blends style with functionality, offering a timepiece that's as versatile as it is iconic.
