In a dazzling collaboration that took the world by storm in March 2022, OMEGA and Swatch released the original MoonSwatch collection, featuring 11 models crafted in revolutionary BIOCERAMIC. Fast forward to 2023, and the collection received a radiant transformation with the introduction of the “Mission to Moonshine Gold” versions. Now, OMEGA announces an exclusive auction from February 12th to 24th, offering 11 MoonSwatch Moonshine Gold suitcases, each housing the entire set of timepieces. This marks the first time these rare models are available as a set, providing fans with a unique opportunity to own a piece of space-inspired history.
Hosted by the prestigious Sotheby’s, the online auction will commence on February 12th and conclude on February 24th – aligning with the next full moon. The 11 suitcases, which will be displayed at select OMEGA Boutiques worldwide from February 1st to 11th, will contain the complete “Mission to Moonshine Gold” collection. This exceptional auction isn’t just about acquiring exquisite timepieces but also making a positive impact.
In a philanthropic gesture, OMEGA will donate 100% of the auction proceeds to Orbis International, a non-profit organization dedicated to combating avoidable blindness and vision loss globally. OMEGA has been supporting Orbis since 2011, and this auction reinforces the brand’s unwavering commitment to making a difference.
Orbis International’s remarkable work, especially in restoring vision for children, underscores the profound impact of the auction. Orbis’s Flying Eye Hospital and extensive programs have provided care for millions of patients, along with training eye care professionals in areas with the greatest need. The funds generated from the auction will further contribute to Orbis’s mission, allowing more individuals, particularly children, to experience the beauty of the world around them.
The 11 timepieces within the MoonSwatch Moonshine Gold collection feature a seconds hand coated in OMEGA’s exclusive 18K Moonshine™ Gold. This distinctive alloy, developed in-house, offers a subtle and long-lasting yellow gold appearance. Each watch in the collection is uniquely adorned with special details, such as a strawberry pattern for the Strawberry Moon and a flower pattern for the Flower Moon. Notably, a lollipop design pays homage to the iconic Speedmaster CK2998 watch from 1961.
The “Mission to Moonshine Gold” suitcases are as extraordinary as the watches they contain. Featuring a golden monocle with the OMEGA x Swatch logo and a one-of-a-kind coin engraved with the aviation code of the city where the suitcase is displayed, these luxurious accessories add an extra layer of exclusivity. The same city code will also be engraved on the side of all watches within the suitcase for that specific location.
