Up Close with the High Quality Omega Speedmaster Replica Dark Side of the Moon

Launched five years ago, the all-ceramic Dark Side of the Moon is one of the most definitive Omega Speedmaster Replica Watches of this generation. Back then the idea of an blacked-out Speedy would have seemed like an attempt to turn a tired workhorse trendy.

In keeping with the DSOTM series, the Apollo 8 still has the same 44.25mm zirconium oxide ceramic case. Though it’s significantly larger than the Moon Watch, the size is not apparent due to the dark colour of the case and dial.

Practically everything on the outside is ceramic, including the bezel, crown, pushers and case back. The High Quality Omega Replica ceramic is sharply finished, with alternating brushed and mirrored polishing, giving it a precise surface that resembles metal. But that’s where the similarities end.

Unlike earlier DSOTM Speedmasters which were powered by the two-register, Co-Axial calibre 9300, the Omega Replica Watches Apollo 8 Speedmaster houses the old school, hand-wound cal. 1861, the same movement found in the current iteration of the classic Moon Watch. But while the mechanics remain the same, it has been specially decorated for the Apollo 8, and christened the cal. 1869.

The most distinctive change, however, is the skeletonised dial, revealing the movement’s blackened main plate – matched with blackened screws – itself also open-worked and decorated via a process of laser ablation to achieve a topologically accurate surface of the Moon; basically a miniature replica of the Moon on the dial. And the relief Swiss Omega Fake Watches and Speedmaster on the dial are also executed with laser ablation.

The same has been done for the bridges and main plate visible on the back, which replicate the other side of the lunar surface. The landscape of craters on the Omega Replica Watches dial is a slightly lighter tone of black, depicting the Moon as seen from Earth, while the bridges on the back are one hue darker, intended to represent the dark side of the Moon.

More importantly, along with having a hand-wound movement that’s slimmer than the automatic in the other DSOTM Omega Fake Watches, the Apollo 8 does away with the “box-type” sapphire crystals found on its cousins, which reduces its overall thickness to just 13.8mm – 2.5mm slimmer than the other DSOTM watches.

Hands-On with the Omega Replica Seamaster 300 Malachite and Lapis Lazuli

Every year Omega Seamaster 300 Replica introduces certain models in platinum, sometimes gold, typically as a limited edition with fancy decoration or dials; last year was the turn of the platinum Aqua Terra Worldtimer with an enamel dial. These top of the line watches are always launched quietly, perhaps because they are preposterously expensive. But they are always cool.

High Quality Omega Replica Dive Watches with exotic dials are not new – Rolex used to make a Submariner with a lapis lazuli dial – but they are rare. The Seamaster 300 with semi-precious stone dials is not a limited edition, but only a small number will be made.

Available in 18k yellow gold or platinum, the cases have the same dimensions as the pedestrian steel models, Swiss Omega Watches 41mm in diameter and 14.65mm high. Good enough for modern tastes, but still small enough to keep the retro feel of a proper remake.

The weight of the Omega Fake Watches, however, is surprising, given their size. With platinum almost three times as dense as stainless steel, the platinum model feels exceptionally hefty, probably weighing close to 500g or a pound. In terms of tangible quality, the watches live up to their cost.

The cases are brushed on the top, and brushed on the sides, matched with alternating surfaces on the bracelet. And the bezels have coloured ceramic inserts to match the dials.

The dials are undoubtedly the highlight. Either lapis lazuli or malachite, the dials have printed markings and slightly sunken hour markers, with the faux vintage Super-LumiNova painted into engraved recesses. Given the fragility of stone Omega Replica Watches dials – the thin slice of stone has to be bonded to a metal back for stability – the engraved hour markers are a surprising touch.

Inside both the gold and platinum models is the same cal. 8913, an automatic with all of  Omega Replica technical innovations that’s visible through the display back. It’s a Co-Axial Master Chronometer, meaning it has the lubrication-free escapement invented by the late George Daniels, as well as a silicon hairspring and extreme magnetism resistance of over 15,000 Gauss. That’s thanks to non-magnetic proprietary alloys used for the escapement.

The movement has twin barrels and a 60-hour power reserve, as well as decorative touches reserved only for precious metal Cheap Omega Replica, namely the rotor and balance bridge in 18k Sedna gold, Omega’s in-house, fade-resistant red gold alloy.
