In the Replica Watches world, the Lémania-based Caliber 321 is known as one of the most beautifully designed and important mechanical chronograph movements ever made.
It was the movement selected to power the very first Speedmaster in 1957 and Omega continued to use it in Speedmaster models throughout the 1950s and most of the 1960s.
The Replica Omega Speedmaster Moonwatch 321 Platinum stays faithful to its 42mm size, but as the name of the watch declares, the case is fashioned from a platinum alloy mixed with gold. Vintage Speedy fans will recognize that the case design is based on the ST 105.012, characterized by an asymmetric case and twisted lugs.For instance, the black bezel has been crafted from high-tech ceramic, complete with the famed tachymeter scale in white enamel.
To emphasize the watch’s history with moon exploration, the black onyx dial of the Speedmaster Moonwatch 321 Platinum is home to a trio of sub-dials made from real slices of moon meteorite. Fake Swiss Omega 18k white gold was used for the hour and minute hands, as well as the hour markers. To top it all off, the watch is fitted with a black leather strap and platinum buckle. Of course, the beauty of Caliber 321 is on display thanks to the sapphire caseback – rosy hues and all.
