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.
Best Omega replica watches have been on a roll over the last few years as the storied Swiss watch maker continues to produce both crowd-pleasing new designs and also “collector bait” timepieces which find happy homes on the wrists of hardcore watch enthusiasts. What is Omega’s secret? That is a tough question to answer as I’m still investigating the story, but it seems to be a combination of putting a lot of resources simultaneously into marketing as well as product development (most brands are good at only one or the other). A close inspection of a watch like the just-announced 2016 Omega Globemaster Annual Calendar reveals a few of Omega’s top fluencies.
It was only about a year ago that we introduced the standard replica Omega Globemaster collection watches here. The 39mm-wide watch debuted in a range of materials including, steel, 18k yellow gold, 18k Sedna (rose) gold, and platinum along with the cryptic slogan “The World’s First Master Chronometer.”
What is a “Master Chronometer?” That is a good question. Of course, the Globemaster is the first of its kind, as it is a name that Omega just came up with to refer to their most advanced movements which have been certified using their most advanced techniques. “Master Chronometer” watches are those which have been METAS certified under a new set of standards developed by an arm of the Swiss government and Omega. The certification is easily one of the most rigorous for Swiss watch movements, as it exceeds COSC Chronometer standards in addition to testing for intense anti-magnetic properties, as well as testing the movements cased up inside of the watches – versus only outside prior to being “cased.”
By 2017, Omega should have about a dozen or so of its in-house made movements being certified in its expanding METAS testing department which exists in-house at the Omega facility in Bienne, Switzerland. The Globemaster with its caliber 8900 movement Omega copy watch UK was the first to be METAS certified, and that continues with the Omega Globemaster Annual Calendar and its in-house-made caliber 8922 automatic Co-Axial movement.
Some watches just look good enough to eat, and with the release of the Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean 600M Master Chronometer “Chocolate” watch, we see a luxury tool watch designed for women with a top-notch METAS certified Master Chronometer movement. This latest iteration of the ever-improving Seamaster line is crafted from Sedna gold, and accented by rich, chocolate brown ceramic Omega replica watches UK.
This is a really interesting piece to contextualise. At just 39.5mm across, it is pretty small for a watch of this aesthetic, but wider than the 37.5mm option previously released for the female market. That said, the soft colourway makes it appear smaller, and certainly appropriate for a woman’s wrist. This piece feminises the whole concept of tool watches. With a water resistance rating of 600M, there can be no mistaking the serious credentials of the Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean 600M Master Chronometer fake watches.
The bezel, due to its reduced diameter, appears much chunkier and solid – a styling decision that makes sense due to the visual softness of rose gold. It is a material that, despite its refinement, seems to enjoy being treated like iron. When liberally sculpted and allowed room to make its presence felt, rose gold really comes into its own. The Ceragold bezel cheap fake Omega watches insert is hard-wearing and luxurious at the same time, and an excellent material to complement the ceramic dial and surrounding gold case. The applied and polished markers on the dial are filled generously with high quality luminant, and the Arabic numerals at 12, 6, and 9 are modern and masculine enough to bring the brutality of the bezel onto the watch face. The result is a watch head of exceptional balance.
Aesthetics aside, the Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean 600M Master Chronometer is a big step forward in terms of high-level accuracy being rolled-out in luxury timepieces for women. This is one of Omega’s first feminine pieces to achieve METAS certification, which means it’s passed their in-house Master Chronometer testing process. The growing size of women’s watches is facilitating the implementation of quality calibres, but it still isn’t commonplace. The Omega Co-Axial Master Chronometer Calibre 8801/8800 contains 35 jewels and operates at 25,200 vph (3.5Hz) and has a power reserve of 55 hours.
