Omega Speedmaster X-33 Regatta ETNZ Limited Edition Waterproof Fake Watches UK

One of Omega’s many sponsorships and partnerships is as Official Timekeeper of the Emirates Team New Zealand (ETNZ) sailing team. For the 35th America’s Cup yacht race taking place this month, June 2017, the Swiss watch maker has announced a couple of limited edition watches including this Omega Speedmaster X-33 Regatta ETNZ that the team members wear while actually racing. Compared to other collections from Omega, it’s been a while since we’ve talked about this interesting but rare family of digital, quartz-powered Omega watches.

The Omega Speedmaster Skywalker X-33 replica watches UK were released in the ’90s, helping show that Omega wasn’t stuck in 1969 with the manually wound mechanical Omega Speedmaster Professional “Moonwatch” as their cutting-edge astronaut gear. But much like Breitling’s Professional line of watches, also with hybrid analog-digital displays, the Omega Speedmaster X-33 was also convincingly meant for professional aviation purposes. It remains a peripheral branch of the Speedmaster collection that particularly dedicated watch enthusiasts and brand enthusiasts can also enjoy.

There’s no reason, however, that it needs to be exclusively for aviation and aerospace, as the Omega Speedmaster X-33 Regatta ETNZ Limited Edition watch shows. I felt it was worth mentioning that the sailing team members wear the Omega Speedmaster X-33 Regatta ETNZ while on board as it does add some credibility to the watches’ intended practical use and durability (water-resistance aside). If you don’t follow regatta racing and aren’t clear on some of the physical rigors involved for people or watches on board one of these vessels in a race.

On a nylon fabric strap, the fake Omega Speedmaster X-33 Regatta ETNZ Limited Edition is 45mm wide in Grade 2 titanium and water-resistant to 30m. This might cause some watchnerds to blink, as that is basically the minimum water-resistance rating for any modern watch, and this one is designed to be involved with watersports. Boats ideally stay on top of the water, yes, but 30m of water resistance refers to the water pressure below 30m of perfectly still water. We generally recommend that you don’t do anything wetter than washing your hands with a 30m-water-resistant watch – mostly dress watches. Granted, there are a bunch of buttons and spots where water ingress becomes a concern on the Omega Speedmaster X-33 Regatta ETNZ, and it seems like they are intended to actually be used – but even most G-Shocks come with 200m water-resistance.

The quartz 5620 movement Omega replica watches inside powers the analog three-hand time telling with the addition of a countdown timer for regatta racing, along with a host of digital displays. If you didn’t know, the reason countdown timers are important to yacht racing and so often found on such watches is that boats get a running start (five minutes) before crossing the starting line that they need to time very carefully. The digital functions can show three time zones, chronograph, timer, (perpetual) calendar information, and two alarms. I will continue to say that negative LCD displays are just inferior to positive ones and can only be seen as a sacrifice of legibility for aesthetics. The regatta countdown timer is activated by the red button at 9 o’clock and triggers a series of alarms with recognizable ringing sequences (sounds stressful to me).

Omega Speedmaster Moonwatch Professional Chronograph Starmus Science Award Gold Leather Strap Replica Watches UK

For a newly announced partnership with the Starmus Science Festival and in support of its Stephen Hawking Medal for Science Communication award, Omega will present each of this year’s three winners with a special 18k yellow gold Omega Speedmaster replica watches UK. The association with a space and science festival like Starmus should make sense to anyone familiar with Omega and the Speedmaster’s history with NASA and its continued involvement in related projects. Let’s now look at the Omega Speedmaster Moonwatch Professional Chronograph Starmus Science Award Gold watch, which is not available for sale, and its purpose for existing.

Apart from all the gold and the engraved case back, this Omega Speedmaster Moonwatch Professional Chronograph appears to be, in most ways, the classic Moonwatch – the Omega Speedmaster Professional. Here, the 42mm case, as well as the bezel, hands, and applied indices are 18k yellow gold. Essentially, anything that was either steel or white in color has been replaced with gold, including the tachymeter scale and the printed elements of the dial. Fully monochromatic, gold looks as lovely as ever paired with black here on the dial, bezel, and leather strap.

Although Omega cheap fake watches UK doesn’t give a lot of details on these specific limited models, we can assume that the specs are mostly consistent with the standard Moonwatch. Of course, inside is the manually wound Omega 1861 cam-actuated chronograph movement that is more or less the modern version of the movement that famously accompanied the NASA astronauts to the Moon.

As mentioned, the typical seahorse logo-engraved case back is replaced here with a special engraving for the Starmus Festival and the Stephen Hawking Medal for Science Communication. The engraving matches the actual medal that winners will receive in addition to the watch. It depicts the first ever human spacewalk by Russian cosmonaut Alexei Leonov (who was most likely wearing a long-lost Soviet government-issued watch), with the “Red Special” guitar of Queen’s lead guitarist Brian May emerging from beyond the horizon, and the Starmus logo.

Why Brian May’s electric guitar, you may ask? Mr. May also happens to have a doctorate in astrophysics and had a hand in founding the Starmus Festival along with Garik Israelian. That kind of makes him a rockstar in more than one sense of the word. The Starmus Festival has a mission of communicating about and promoting science to the public. The three Stephen Hawking Medal for Science Communication awards will go to three different categories; Science Writing, Films, and Music and Art. Finally, engraved around the edge of the case back are the words “Winner of the Stephen Hawking Medal for Science Communication.”

Omega Seamaster Edizione Venezia Leather Strap Replica Watches UK

Out of the blue, Omega today debuted the Omega Seamaster Edizione Venezia replica watches, a stylish, retro-inspired take on the Seamaster, offered in a highly elegant 39.5mm case, crafted from either Omega’s proprietary 18k Sedna gold or… yes, stainless steel.

On a personal note, the 40mm-wide De Ville Trésor has been probably my favorite modern Omega: it’s classical, restrained, and under-the-radar, but, with its curvy case and dial, it’s plenty interesting for a dress watch. Plus, its Master Co-Axial Chronometer movement delivers all the goodies Omega can engineer into a movement today… So what exactly is the matter with the Trésor? It’s not available in steel but exclusively in – very pricey – gold of different types…

…Which leads us to the Omega Seamaster Edizione Venezia, a new Seamaster that offers comparably beautiful and restrained styling in a classical 39.5mm case, a METAS-certified Master Co-Axial Chronometer movement (now an automatic over the Trésor’s hand-wound), and refreshingly, it does come in Sedna gold and steel. And, if you hadn’t guessed already, there is, of course, a story to go with it as well.

Omega says the idea for the Seamaster’s sea horse logo came when one of Omega’s designers visited Venice and saw the gondolas adorned with this fascinating animal – he liked the possible connection with it and the Seamaster and, since 1957, the Seahorse emblem has been associated with this collection.

While self-proclaimed Omega red leather strap fake watches historians will certainly know of a few vintage Seamasters from the mid-1900s, I don’t think it’s a stretch to say that most Omega fans and buyers today think not of a vintage dress watch when they hear the word Seamaster. Yet, this new-for-2017 piece shares numerous design elements with Seamasters of old, reminding everyone that the Seamaster has not always been about chunky, sporty, and colorful. It goes to show that, if you think about it, not only is Omega itself a very versatile and complex brand, but even its collections can be a bit all over the place sometimes.

While you could consider this another 60th-anniversary tribute, I think the new Omega Seamaster Edizione Venezia should really just be left alone to be what it actually is: a heavily vintage-inspired, retro-looking dress watch, something that’s been missing from Omega’s  limited edition replica watches table for some time now. The Globemaster is available in steel but is more modern in its design, even if it is not without its own vintage-tribute details.

Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean ‘Big Blue’ GMT Series Limited Edition Replica Watches UK

When talking about the use of ceramic in watchmaking, Omega has to be mentioned. In 2013, it launched the Speedmaster “Dark Side of the Moon” which, in my mind, should be considered one of the most important watches in recent history. By then, ceramic had already been widely used and adopted by the watchmaking industry, but the Speedmaster “Dark Side of the Moon” took ceramic and used it almost everywhere – save for the movement. The entire case, crown, pushers, buckle and even the dial are made out of ceramic. Since then, Omega has been experimenting with ceramic in more ways, and new Seamaster Planet Ocean “Big Blue” Omega watches UK are the latest ceramic creation.
If you think about it, the use of ceramic in watchmaking makes sense. If you have a watch made out of more typical materials like stainless steel, gold, or platinum, chances are it is a little scratched up. For people who don’t like scratches, this is a problem. Enter watches with ceramic cases. Because ceramic is so strong and resistant to scratches, it is virtually scratch-proof. In other words, ceramic watches are more likely to stay scratch-free and maintain their pristine look.

The new fake Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean “Big Blue” is the latest full ceramic watch from Omega. In essence, it is a blue version of last year’s Seamaster Planet Ocean Deep Black collection watches , but the highlight here is the blue ceramic case. Omega says this is the first time they have done a watch entirely in blue ceramic.
Like the Planet Ocean Deep Black watches, the new Seamaster Planet Ocean “Big Blue” is made from a single block of blue ceramic. The bezel, crown and even the dial are all made out of the same blue ceramic material. This is a big watch, measuring 45.5mm wide and just under 18mm thick, but because it is made out of ceramic, which is substantially lighter than stainless steel, it should feel light on the wrist. Water-resistance is a formidable 600 meters, and there’s a helium release valve. In other words, this is a serious professional dive watch.

The blue ceramic bezel Omega replica watches UK features minute markings filled with Liquidmetal and the first 15 minutes of the bezel is filled bright orange rubber so it stands out against the blue ceramic bezel. There are orange accents elsewhere too. The blue ceramic crown, for instance, is signed with a bright orange Omega logo, and the blue ceramic dial is surrounded by a GMT track in the same bright shade of orange.

The GMT hand is also bright orange. I’m really fond of the orange and blue color scheme. It looks fun and it is also practical since the two colors contrast brightly. Finally, the hour, minute, and seconds, as well as the hour indexes, are all made out of 18K white gold and filled with white SuperLuminova.
