Popular Replica Omega Speedmaster Moonwatch at affordable price
In 1957, after originally launching it, the iconic Omega Speedmaster celebrates its 60th anniversary. No later than a decade, it seems be known as the “moonwatch” gradually. All timepiece fans learn that the Speedmaster by Swiss Omega replica was chosen by American NASA to be the official timepiece worn by Apollo mission astronauts and eventually to the moon – some times.
The once racing- and pilot-themed Speedmaster became the timepiece synonymous with the moon and everything in accordance with the astronauts since the moon missions. It is a persona that keeps on enduring today, even though Omega has yet to determine how it will truly be a part of contemporary spaceflight activities so as to secure future relevance in this topic. What has really helped the Speedmaster endure, however, isn’t just a connection to the historic moon missions or NASA, but rather its winning layout. What’s more, the Speedmaster has been rendered in so many ways with so many variants that even highly trained specialists have trouble keeping track of all the models.
The steel versions of the replica watches have a printed life-like representation of the moon in the discs, while the gold and platinum versions have textured moonphase discs which offer a different appearance. The platinum version of the watch even goes so far as to have a small magnifier disc where the date pointer hand is. This is pretty cool, but I recall Omega saying that the part was such a pain to make that they would not have been able to make it for a non-limited edition. For more information on the precious metal-cased versions of the replica Omega Speedmaster Moonwatch Master Chronometer Moonphase Chronograph (the name is so long it almost tires my fingers to type it out each time) see our previous hands-on article of the fuller collection linked to above.
There are many things related with the sandwich-style construction of the case, as well as the fact that the various parts comes with different widths. In spite of the size, the case is very comfortable as a whole and attractive /amazing on the wrist, and its details do merit close inspection. The case is water-proof to 100 meters and has a sapphire crystal on both ends, with a display case back providing with a view of the wise in-house-made movement.
