Swiss luxury watch maker Omega has unveiled the latest and greatest version of the Moonwatch, the iconic watch that is perhaps most famous for being worn by American astronaut Neil Armstrong on the surface of the moon.

Dubbed the Dark Side of the Moon Apollo 8, this watch bears all the classic design cues that made the Omega Moonwatch so legendary, but with a few extra twists. This particular watch comes fitted with a wind mechanical movement, while the rear section of its case features the engraved words of command module pilot Jim Lovell, a key member of the Apollo 8 mission.

Expected to be priced in at around $9,000, this special-edition Omega Moonwatch is a truly iconic watch that promises luxurious, lunar-inspired design and cutting-edge Swiss time-keeping technology.
