I am sometimes asked why I purchased an Omega Speedmaster Professional Replica Watches, a hand-wound and rather plain chronograph wristwatch. Usually those who ask are neither watch collectors nor interested in horology; rather they are only casually interested in watches as jewelry or just consider them an appliance to tell them how long before they should be somewhere or be doing something. This is not meant as criticism; for the watch-loving community is relatively small and those who are asking may have interests of their own that I would likewise fail to appreciate.
Now if you’re a collector or watch aficionado, owning a Best Omega Replica Speedmaster is almost mandatory. In this case we are discussing the hand-wound version and not the later variations with more modern automatic co-axial escapement movements.There have been changes to Speedmaster Professionals both inside and out for sure as improvements were made; but, most were minor and barely noticeable externally. Internally, a major change was made in 1968 with the change in the movement from caliber 321 to 861; Omega Replica nevertheless, the watch remains true to its original form and function to this day.
So how did I choose a Speedmaster to purchase? Of course as with any collectable there are ranges of age, condition, desirability, and cost.Therefore, budget was a key factor narrowing down my range of choices as I did not want to spend more than the cost of a brand new Speedmaster Professional. Since I decided I preferred the look of vintage Swiss Omega Speedmasters Fake Watches, this meant that I would be purchasing something in all likelihood newer than 1972, certainly newer than 1968, and it would be a watch with the 861 movement rather than the 321 movement of the pre-1968 Speedmasters and Speedmaster Professionals.
Using their in-house developed chronograph movement in a full ceramic watch. The success was amazing. Not only did it sell very well, it was also very much appreciated by the collector’s community. A tough crowd, as you know. What happened next is that Omega Speedmaster Professional Replica started to create all sorts of versions.
Last year, Omega decided it was time for another ‘X Side of the Moon’ version, now based on the Moonphase model. Officially, Omega still uses ‘Moonwatch’ in the official name of these 44.25mm Co-Axial Master Chronometer Replica Watches models, but I refuse to do so. Doesn’t make sense and it is confusing for people who are new to this and want to have the original ‘Moonwatch’. So, anyway, this is the Blue Side of the Moon edition of that watch.
Besides having the state-of-the-art Omega caliber 9904 movement, the other thing about this Blue Side of the Moon is that – as the name suggests – everything is in blue ceramics. The case, crown, pushers, bezel, dial and even the Moonphase disc is made of ceramic. The near and far sides of the Moon are on the ceramic dial using LiquidMetal technology, much like how the tachymeter scale is applied to the ceramic bezel. As you would have guessed, the folding clasp is also made of ceramic. Omega Replica Watches Swiss Movement Ceramic over titanium, for flexibility and strength. Putting this Omega Speedmaster Co-Axial Master Chronometer Moonphase ‘Blue Side of the Moon’ on the wrist is something special. The presence on the wrist is amazing, and especially in day light, the blue is really.. well.. blue. Inside, or in a place where the light is not as bright, the blue turns a bit darker.
The dial of the Omega Speedmaster ‘Blue Side of the Moon’ is packed with nice detailed, without becoming too cluttered. There are two sub dials, one shows the hour and minute recorder of the chronograph, the Fake Omega Watches Ebay other shows the date and running seconds. The date indicator has a red ‘half Moon’. Red can also be found on the tip of the chronograph seconds hand as well as the word ‘Speedmaster’ written on the dial. The 18 carat white gold hands and hour markers give a nice contrast to the blue ceramic dial. The best detail, of course, is the moon itself. On the moon phases aperture at 6 o’clock, you see the ceramic moon phases disc that has two Moons, in LiquidMetal. Bert did some macro shots of the dial and especially of the Moons. Have a look.
