    +1! this yellow line in the pusher makes no sense.

    I believe that this is a Chinese Special Edition for the CNSA (Chinese NASA), but it's clearly available outside of China. Am I reading too much into the yellow being for the sun and the red for Mars?

    Nice looking dial. Agree that the yellow pusher accent looks a little out of place but if there is a deeper meaning, fair enough.

    The link works for me.

    With that extra information I think it's safe to say that the red and yellow pushers are a wink towards the Chinese flag.

    That was two years ago....

    Well, the moon landing is one of mankind's greatest achievements so far, and you can expect there will be far more attention paid to the 50th anniversary than just from Omega....

    Really? Oh, well.... it's just I saw it on someone's Baselworld 2018 video. Strange..

    That's true, I wonder how big the box will be though...

    My mistake, you're right. The blue moonphase released before is steel, with a blue dial and bezel. This one is in a blue ceramic case. For some odd reason, along with the CK2998 pulsations LE it hasn't been highlighted by any other media outlet.

    The Basel releases this year are pretty boring, and Omega is no exception - though I have tried on the Planet Ocean Big Blue (which is made of the same blue ceramic) and it's actually kinda cool
