For 2016, Omega has released a collection of Omgea Speedmaster moon phase replica watches, a complication that pays homage to the watch’s unique history as the watch NASA took to the moon. Last year, Omega unveiled a Speedmaster Dark Side of the Moon collection, but this year they want to show off the storied space history and also show off their new METAS-certified in-house caliber 9904/9905 movement housed in the Omega Speedmaster Master Chronometer Chronograph Moonphase watches.
To satisfy Speedmaster fans, and as the the brand tends to do with its new releases, Omega is offering several versions of the new Omega Speedmaster Master Chronometer Chronograph Moonphase watch. First, in stainless steel with a cool blue liquid metal dial and blue alligator strap or on a steel bracelet. Second is the version in Sedna gold with black alligator strap Omega replica watches. Third is a rare yellow gold one but with green liquid metal bezel. And finally, there is a limited edition platinum version with a super-cool red liquid metal bezel. Additionally, the platinum version also includes a tiny magnifying glass on the date hand semicircle which helps to see the date more clearly. Omega says that this little addition is not so easy to achieve and, at least for now, it is only on the platinum version.
The Omega replica Speedmaster Master Chronometer Chronograph Moonphase watches all share the new caliber 9904/9905 movement which is a METAS-certifiedMaster Chronometer, meaning there are rigorous anti-magnetic and performance standards that exceed the industry-standard COSC Certification. This follows Omega’s promise to make all their watches pass the METAS certification and at the same time move all of their collection to become anti-magnetic. This is primarily achieved by using a proprietary nonmagnetic alloy for all parts of the watch and movement as well as using a silicon escapement.
The movement is made of 368 parts as well as 54 jewels. The automatic movement operates at a frequency of 28,800vph (4Hz) helping provide the Omega Speedmaster Master Chronometer Chronograph Moonphase watch with a 60-hour power reserve. As we mentioned earlier, it is antimagnetic to the tune of 15,000 gauss. This movement also features Omega’s silicon Si14 balance spring and free-sprung balance. By the way, when you see a 9905 movement, that just means the rotor and bridge on the balance wheel is made of Sedna gold. In the 9904, these are Rhodium-plated. Both feature Geneva waves in arabesque and blackened screws, barrels, and balance wheels.
For 2013, Omega fully rounds-out the Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra series replica watches UK family with the new Omega Aqua Terra Chronograph GMT. With a new movement and solid looks, this is the semi-formal sport watch in the Omega Aqua Terra collection to lust after. I had no idea that the Omega Aqua Terra collection was so beloved until aBlogtoWatch viewers started to ask en masse a few months before Baselworld 2013 whether or not Omega was going to insert their newer in-house made Caliber 9300 automatic chronograph into an Omega Aqua Terra model.
The question was reasonable as Omega is making a point to replace all watches with non in-house made movements with in-house made movements. Especially in their higher-end collections such as the De Ville, Planet Ocean, and Aqua Terra. So I waited for Baselworld to find out. What I learned is that not only will Omega release an Aqua Terra with an in-house made movement, but that it will also have a GMT complication. This is all part of the new Omega Caliber 9605 automatic movement.
Essentially, the 9605 is a version of the 9300 with a GMT hand in one of the subdials. Though, this really rounds out the design. When Omega released the caliber 9300 movement in 2011, the idea was to have an exceptional in-house chronograph that was modern in every way, have a column wheel, silicon parts in the escapement, and be useful. It uses two subdials for the full 12 hour chronograph. This puts two hands in the right subdial, which measures both the chronograph hours and minutes.
In the 9300, the left subdial was for the running seconds. In the caliber 9605 you have a GMT hand in there as well. Now the two subdials are better balanced with two hands each. This also upgrades the utility of Omega’s in-house movement to offer that extra feature. A chronograph with date and GMT hand is a wonderful travel watch. Omega best replica watches also needed something to compete with Breitling’s Caliber 04 movement. I have a feeling that the 9605 is every bit as impressive as the 9300 in terms of accuracy and utility. We still don’t have a quick set feature for the date, but otherwise this is a damn useful automatic movement.
One of the top releases that I personally could not wait to go hands-on with at Baselworld 2015 was the Omega Speedmaster White Side Of The Moon replica watches. I am certainly not alone when I say I am a fan of the original 2013 Dark Side of the Moon , and the somewhat lighter, more contrasty Grey Side of the Moon made for a most welcome alternative. So when this, the White Side – or rather, the Bright Side, perhaps – happened, we wanted to see how it measured up against its more serious-looking elders.
While Swiss luxury watch holdings and brands appear to have been running at full steam to exploit virtually any new trend and market gap there is, we are still not exactly spoiled for choice when it comes white watches… So, is the Omega Speedmaster White Side Of The Moon enough to make a difference and show us that iconic designs can look good in eye-wateringly bright, snow white? Let’s see…
…But, before we do that, let me start straight away by pointing out what may have been the only really off-putting element of this 2015 release: its strap. This white alligator leather strap with white stitching is nicely made and amply padded but, most importantly, it also sports a glossy, shiny finish that is very, very feminine-looking indeed. Don’t get me wrong, that is not necessarily a bad thing, as I am sure that this all-white piece with this shiny strap would look amazing on the wrist of a discerning fashionista lady… However, this choice of leather further highlighted one of the two sides of the “WSotM,” which also happens to be the side that makes many prematurely title it as a women’s watch. The reality could not be further from the truth, though, as beyond this imminently feminine look lies the other side of this white watch: a sporty, casual, and yet refined-looking timepiece that can, and in fact does, look great in more informal settings. So let us gloss over the strap choice this one time.
If you are not a fan of (or even outright dislike) white dial replica Omega speedmaster watches, what’s about to come probably won’t suffice to change your mind, but it is certainly worth discussing nevertheless. What helped explain to me how this “snow-white” version makes the Speedmaster look so remarkably different was a chat I had with some designer friends of mine about the issue of choosing the right color for a product. I learned that white is one of, if not the best color to paint a product if you wish to let its shape speak for itself. I would suggest looking at cars that you see around you (preferably in real life, not images): the ones in white display most of the curves, bulges, and indentations, also known as “negative spaces” that have been thoughtfully added to the chassis of the car, making it easier to appreciate the finer details of the design.
For 2015, Omega best replica watches UK continues to release exciting new watches that are inspired (often directly) by their own history while also serving to debut new technologies or features that make these modern watches so exciting to enthusiasts. The brand new Omega Globemaster Co-Axial Master Chronometer is something that requires a lot to fully explain, but few words are necessary to appreciate the style of this dressy, though still sort of sporty, new timepiece inspired by original Omega Constellation watches – namely those with the so called “pie pan” dials.
Omega could not, however, call these watches just “Constellations,” because currently the Omega constellation cheap fake watch is a totally different model family (and that might confuse people today, just a little bit). With that said, the technical full name of the collection does include “Constellation.” So we now have the 2015 Omega Constellation Globemaster Co-Axial Master Chronometer.
Aside from using this new Globemaster name, there are a lot of nice little details taken directly from vintage Omega Constellation watches, and in fact it belongs to Omega’s Constellation collection. Some dedicated collectors may opt to simply close their eyes and think, “I know in my heart this is a modern ‘original’ Constellation, so I will imagine that name on the dial.” One of my favorite Omega Globemaster Co-Axial Master Chronometer watch details is the 18k gold or steel emblem set into the sapphire crystal on the rear of the watch with an image of an observatory. Omega collectors will really like that detail. The pie-pan design of the domed dial is also a nice touch and the legibility of the collection is very impressive.
In terms of size, the Omega Globemaster Co-Axial Master Chronometer collection fake watches are 39mm wide, and for 2015, Omega isn’t taking it slow with versions by offering an 18k Sedna gold (basically rose gold), a steel version, and a two-tone model. When Omega comes out with a new collection that the brand feels will be popular, there is rarely a deficit of variety for consumers to choose from. What I really like about the new Omega Globemaster Co-Axial Master Chronometer is the case finishing which is mostly brushed. That also goes for the bracelet which has a neat sporty feel to it, being offered in a brushed finish versus polished.
The main polished element on the case is the bezel. While many people will see the Omega Globemaster Co-Axial Master Chronometer bezel as being rather thematically similar to a fluted bezel on Rolex watches, this is a design element which is present on some existing Omega timepieces.
