Contrary to popular belief, not all Omega Speedmasters Fake Watches are “Moonwatches” – those are specific versions that are either direct descents of the Apollo 11 Speedmaster Professional watches or versions that Omega created in honor of the lunar landing.
Sporting a case that is 39mm in diameter, the aptly named ‘Reduced’ is noticeably smaller than the 42mm size of the Speedmaster Professional watches. It is also slighter than the 41.5mm size of the Co-Axial Speedmaster ’57 model and the 44.25mm size of the Speedmaster Racing edition.
The Omega Replica Speedmaster Reduced is also sometimes referred to as the Speedmaster Automatic because, well, it runs on an automatic movement! This is in contrast to Speedmaster Professional “Moonwatches,” which are famous for their manually-wound calibers.
Due to the movement, the layout of the Speedmaster Reduced dial has the trio of registers spread out quite significantly where they are almost touching the outer minute track. Compare that to the Speedmaster Professional models where the three sub-dials are positioned much closer to the center. Also take note of the “AUTOMATIC” label on the dial, just under theOmega Replica Watches Speedmaster logo.
As Omega initially promised, the Speedmaster Reduced is a smaller and less expensive version of its more famous Speedy Pro brother. Some may also argue it is a more practical version thanks to its self-winding movement.
Consisting of a sterling silver Snoopy pin – each one actually carried aboard a NASA mission, along with a certificate and letter of appreciation from astronauts, the Omega Replica Watches Silver Snoopy Award is one of the most prized symbols of recognition in the industry.
It was during the complex re-entry procedure that pilot Jack Swiggert’s Omega Speedmaster was called into service, precisely timing the 14-second bursts of the module’s propulsion engines to correct their course and ensure they penetrated the atmosphere at the right angle. It recognition of this feat, NASA awarded Omega Fake Watchesthe Silver Snoopy Award.
The artwork is reproduced on the case back although, interestingly, there is one apparently unintentional difference. On the front, Omega Speedmaster Replica Snoopy’s helmet has four reflection lines, which are missing on the reverse. It is presumed the badges came from different suppliers back in 2003.
Inside, of course, is the manually-wound Lemania-based Caliber 1861, whose predecessor took over from the legendary Omega Speedmaster Snoopy Replica Caliber 321 in 1968. Swapping the former’s column wheel-controlled chronograph for a cam-actuated system decreased costs and lent the movement more resilience – making it ideal for service in an astronauts’ timepiece.
In fact, with the possible exception of the High Quality Omega Replica Watches, the piece brought out in 1995 to honor the 25 years since the near disaster, it is among the most sought after and expensive of the latter-day models on the preowned market.
The Omega SpeedmasterReplica is an iconic watch, and its aesthetic is well known. The black dial with contrasting white markings and hands. The distinctive case profile with those twisted “lyre” lugs. That domed crystal rising above the inky, black tachymeter bezel.
The Teutonic Speedmasters —a collection of Replica Watches defined by their case shape, but in terms of dial and movement are pure Speedmaster.
The bezel measures 39 millimeters in diameter, but with the case splaying out on the three o’clock side towards the pushers and crown it stretches to 44 millimeters across. The lug-to-lug length is only 46 millimeters, so despite taking slightly more wrist real estate than a regular Omega Replica Watches Swiss Movement, the Teutonic wears smaller and more comfortably than you might think at first glance.
The case edges and lines are mostly soft and flowing, and the bead-blasted finish adds to this effect. The chronograph pushers and crown are rounded and deeply set within the case, High Quality Omega Replica and though the case lines threaten to resolve to a sharp point against the back of your hand, the angles soften again to create a gentle recess.
