The Replica Omega Speedmaster Dark Side of the Moon Apollo 8

Omega Replica has outfitted the Apollo 8 in a 44-mm-diameter case, 13.8 mm thick, made entirely of jet-black zirconium oxide ceramic, with a polished ceramic tachymeter bezel, bearing white numerals and indices and the word “TACHYMÈTRE” in bright yellow.

The case is exquisitely finished, employing both polishing and satin brushing, with the middle curving elegantly into the faceted lugs. The plunger-style chronograph pushers are in polished black, and subtly rounded on the top for tactile comfort.

A rather firm push is required to engage the chronograph and halt it with the top pusher and to return the yellow, arrow-tipped chronograph seconds hand to zero with the bottom one. Nestled between the two pushers is the polished black, fluted crown, which does not screw down and is inscribed with the Greek letter High Quality Omega Replica.

Moving on to the dial, the yellow highlights include the central chronograph hand, which has a varnished finish, the small chronograph hands on the subdials at 3 and 6 o’clock, and the tips of the rectangular, applied indices.

Meanwhile, a white varnish is used for the small seconds hand on the 9 o’clock subdial, and white Super-LumiNova coats the hands and hour indices as well as all the indications on the bezel’s tachymeter scale. Between these markers, on a black ring, is a minute scale also reminiscent of the one used on the Omega Speedmaster Racing Replica.

From the dial side, the effect is executed in a lighter gray shade and echoes the view of the moon that we see from Earth, while the rear side, visible through a clear sapphire caseback window, is darker gray, aping the eponymous “dark side” that only astronauts have ever viewed in person.

Omega Updates Speedmaster 38mm Replica Watch with Four New Gold Editions

Omega Replica unveiled the latest updates to its ever-popular Speedmaster line, with four new references being added to the women-focused Speedmaster 38mm collection.

These new include two Sedna gold models and two yellow-gold editions, both precious-metal varieties offering either a diamond-bezel or a sans-diamonds option.

The yellow-gold Omega Replica use a silver dial with green accents and are strapped on a green crocodile strap, while the Sedna gold models uses a cappuccino-colored dial with brown accents and are strapped on a taupe strap.

Each of the 38-mm cases are produced in the iconic, twisted-lug Speedmaster style, alongside large pump pushers and a signed crown on their right side. The Omega Fake Watch dial is surrounded by a fixed tachymeter bezel in each watch’s accent color; the diamond versions feature a two-layer look with the tachymeter on the inside and the diamonds outlining it.

Inside the new models is the High Quality Replica Omega 3330 Caliber, an automatic movement boasting a 52-hour power reserve that features, like nearly all modern Omega movements, a co-axial escapement, a free sprung-balance, and a silicon balance spring. The movement is protected via a solid caseback with an engraved seahorse design.

The Best Vintage Omega Replica Watches for Men

Omega’s history stretches back over 170-years to 1848. During that time the brand has clocked up a string of innovations as well as providing the industry with a litany of iconic models. Omega Replica watches for men span virtually every corner of the brand’s extensive catalog, and some like the Speedmaster have achieved a truly legendary status within the industry.

OMEGA SPEEDMASTER 145.022

Easily one of the most famous Omega watches for men, there are few names in horology more evocative than the Speedmaster.

The Cal. 861 was given a shuttle cam system, still extremely precise but without quite the same smooth feel to the pushers. Nevertheless, the movement was considered to be more accurate than the Cal. 321, had a higher balance frequency of 21,600vph rather than 18,000vph and was, crucially, cheaper to build.

Whichever you go for, a Replica Speedmaster Professional is an absolute must for any collection, and the ref. 145.022 is up there with the absolute best vintage Omega watches for men in terms of value for the money.

OMEGA SEAMASTER 14755

The Omega Seamaster Replica range actually goes back even further than the Speedmaster in Omega’s chronicles, the original being released in 1948 to celebrate the brand’s 100th year in operation. But while that original piece, the CK2518, was a dress watch fitted with a rubber O-ring gasket to give a certain amount of water resistance during typical day to day wear, the Seamaster title is now most associated with a series of dedicated and highly capable dive watches.

The first of Omega Seamaster dive copy watch was the CK2913 from 1957, launched as one of the ‘holy trinity’ in the manufacturer’s Professional Collection, alongside the newly introduced Speedmaster and the scientist’s antimagnetic model, the Railmaster.

The Fake Seamaster Professional 300, as it was called, featured a rotating bezel with numerals to help divers track immersion times, as well as double crown seals and an extremely thick crystal to ensure its water resistance to…200m.
