This week Atom Moore captures the Speedmaster Dark Side of the Moon, a beautiful tribute to Apollo 8 which features a “specially decorated” version of the well known Moonwatch movement. Since the space race the moon has held a duality for us; there is our view of the moon from earth and the view only astronauts see. Watches are similar. There’s a side the wearer can see and a side only those most intimately familiar with a piece get to explore. Inscribed above the display case, that gives us a view into the inner workings of this Moonwatch movement, are the words, “We’ll see you on the other side”. As Apollo 8 was about to leave contact range Pilot Jim Lovell said these iconic words and continued on to get a view of the moon never before seen by man.
