It has inspired numerous films, songs, and literature. Elton John had sung a cover and so did Pink Floyd. It was the theme of a popular Russian television series, as it was the tone that set a blockbuster movie about transforming robots. It was even made into a novel back in 2006. The dark side of the moon, it’s mysterious, secretive, its face forever turned away from earth. Omega
was likewise drawn to its enigma with the release of its watch model, The Dark Side of the Moon Speedmaster

Omega is available at Schiffman's at Friendly Center.
