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 Replica Watches 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, Cheap Omega Replica still uses ‘Moonwatch’ in the official name of these 44.25mm Co-Axial Master Chronometer 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 Replica Watches 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. 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 Replica 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 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 Best Omega Replica Watches 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.
