Hands-On with the Omega Replica Speedmaster Grey Side of the Moon

Famous as the Omega Replica watch that went to the Moon, the Omega Speedmaster Professional remains part of NASA’s approved equipment for space. The Moonwatch is a no-frills, almost basic wristwatch, powered by the reliable but decades-old Lemania calibre 1872.

The meteorite Cheap Omega Replica Speedmaster is essentially a dressed up version of the ceramic Speedy that made it debut three years ago as the Speedmaster Dark Side of the Moon. With almost all the external components made of ceramic – case, bezel, back, dial and even buckle – the DSOTM was an impressive feat of manufacturing technology.

Since then the DSOTM has grown to include white, grey and all the shades in between, somewhat diluting the novelty of the product. The Omega Replica Watches Speedmaster Grey Side of the Moon “Meteorite” brings back a tiny bit of the novelty with a meteorite dial.

Exotic as it sounds meteorite is not a rare material, since thousands of cosmic rocks have fallen to Earth. National Geographic says over 60,000 meteorites have been discovered on the planet, while according to Cornell’s Astronomy Department the mass of sizeable meteorites that Best Omega Replica hit Earth each year is in the thousands of kilograms – that’s several tonnes a year.

Aside from the dial, the Grey Side of the Moon “Meteorite” is identical to the various “Sides of the Moon” Speedmasters. The Omega Replica Watches Online case is ceramic and 44.24mm in diameter, big enough it won’t be missed on the wrist.

The sapphire crystal on the meteorite Omega Speedmaster Replica is a bit more elaborate than usual, with a “box-shape” form. Essentially a dome with a flat top and an angled edge, the box-shape sapphire crystal was historically found only on higher end timepieces or most notably, Grand Seiko, given the extra cost to produce, compared to a flat crystal.

A Detailed Look at the Omega Replica Seamaster Planet Ocean Deep Black GMT

Over the last decade Omega has steadily developed new features to improve its watches, ranging from the Co-Axial escapement deep inside the movement to the ceramic case that made its debut on the Omega Replica Speedmaster Dark Side of the Moon.

The Seamaster Planet Ocean Deep Black combines all of those innovations in a single watch, resulting in an impressively featured.Made entirely of precisely finished black ceramic, the Deep Black case is large and hefty, being 45.5mm Omega Replica Watches in diameter. The style is typical of Omega, with “lyre” lugs that are fortunately short, allowing it to fit on smaller wrists.

The case finishing is entirely brushed and matte on the red and blue versions of the Deep Black Replica Watches Online, but alternates between brushed and mirror polished on the rose gold and black models. The latter is significantly more attractive, given the contrast between the two surface finishes, especially the polished bevel along the length of the lugs.

But the particular ceramic Omega uses for the Omega Replica Seamaster Planet Ocean Deep Black GMT is slightly elastic, making the Naiad Lock screw-down back possible. Both the back and case feature large, wave-like teeth that lock against each other when the back is tightened, compressing the rubber gasket in-between to ensure water-resistance. The screw-down back also operates like a bayonet lock, so the Omega logo and lettering are always correctly aligned and read horizontally.

In addition, the bezel is also ceramic with a matching ceramic insert. On the Sedna gold model the insert features matching Sedna gold markings pressed into the bezel, while on the black model the markings are Liquidmetal, an amorphous metal alloy with a glass-like atomic structure.

And on the blue and red models, the Liquidmetal markings are joined by injected rubber to match the dial. While the longevity of rubber is a concern – the material doesn’t have the robustness of ceramic for instance – Cheap Omega Replica states with certainty that the rubber inlaid bezel has been age tested to the equivalent of years and years with no visible wear.

The use of ceramic continues on the dial with the entire dial being a disc of ceramic – mirror polished and exceptionally glossy on the black and Sedna gold models, and a no-nonsense, matte black on the red and blue versions.Up close the Omega Replica Watches dial reveals itself to be extremely well executed, with expensive detailing – the hands and hour markers are all 18k gold – and precise printing.
