The new Replica Speedmaster Snoopy is an attractive variant of the Speedmaster. While the design elements are the most obvious, the coolest bit of the new watch is on the back: the running indicators linked to the dial are a nifty detail that sets this apart mechanically from all other Speedmasters.
The movement within has been cleverly modified to link two displays on the Luxurious Replica Watchescase back to the time indications on the front. The Earth depicted on the back is linked to the running seconds, and makes one revolution a minute.
Because the case back is secured with a Naiad Lock, Fake Omega’s name for its bayonet-style case back attachment, the motif on the back always remains upright.
The case is a standard, 42 mm Moon replica watch case in steel that’s fitted with a tachymeter bezel featuring a blue-ceramic insert that has white enamel markings.
Inside is the cal. 3861, the modernised version of the longstanding cal. 1861 found in many generations of Omega Speedmasters Replica. The cal. 3861 features a Co-Axial escapement and magnetism-resistant escapement, and is also a Master Chronometer that’s undergone the testing process supervised by the Swiss meteorological agency METAS.
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.
