Mission to Mooshine Blue Moon Mostly Justifies its Existence

The new Moonswatch might actually alleviate availability issues with the blue Mission to Neptune....

Once again, the full moon brings us another piece in the Mission to Moonshine line, but instead of slapping a gold chronograph seconds hand on a Mission to the Moon piece, they’ve slapped a gold hand on a Mission to Neptune and called it the Mission to Moonshine Blue Moon. Strangely, this might actually interest people because the Mission to Neptune is the rarest colourway in the Moonswatch line.

This sixth entry into the Moonshine line is a worthwhile re-release because the Mission to Neptune in the original 11 pieces was pulled from stores due to a defect that saw the blue paint rub off onto people’s wrists. Needless to say, that wasn’t ideal and Swatch halted production on the model until they solved the issue.

This release seems to suggest that they have indeed solved the problem, and this might help alleviate availability issues (yeah, right). While this does the exact same thing as the original Mission to Moonshine Gold, the fact that they’ve used a different colourway at least justifies its existence somewhat and doesn’t feel like a complete re-tread.

We should also mention that it’s called the Blue Moon because of the actual blue moon set to appear on August 30 which is also the release date for this piece. These are going for CHF 275.
