The new black: understanding Cheap Replica Omega’s new Dark Side of the Moon Speedmasters

It began in 2013, with the Replica Omega Speedmaster  Dark Side of the Moon – a bold new take on Omega’s most famous chronograph that saw it cased not in steel, or even gold, but black ceramic. Now, it seems the Moon has many sides…

replica Omega Dark Side of the Moon 2015 Variants

The Speedmaster Dark Side of the Moon was a slightly unexpected hit. The last few years have seen a proliferation of black-on-black watches from Hublot to Girard-Perregaux and everyone in between, and yet the Dark Side of the Moon managed to stand out; both for its boldness in taking such a well-known reference as its canvas, and the weighty quality and clarity which with it was executed.

This year, Omega replica watches uk announced four new aesthetic iterations on the Speedmaster Dark Side of the Moon, with names that are, frankly, as opaque as their namesake. We’ve picked out the key details and differences for each.

Replica omega Speedmaster Dark Side of the Moon “Vintage Black”


First up is the “Vintage Black”. That’s not too hard to understand, as a name: the hour, minute and seconds markers, tachymeter scale, chronograph subdials and indeed all other dial text have all been given a yellowed “Vintage” luminova treatment. The case, dial and clasp are all black ceramic Zirconium Oxide (hence the ZrO2 inscription just above the centre of the dial). The case and bezel have a brushed finish, while the dial has a laser-ablated matt finish, with “blackened applied subdial rings”. To complete the vintage look, it comes on a distressed brown leather strap (which is nevertheless lined with rubber, for longevity).

Omega replica Speedmaster Dark Side of the Moon “Sedna Black”



Next we have the Replica Omega Speedmaster Dark Side of the Moon “Sedna Black” – the flashiest of the new references. Sedna refers to Sedna Gold, Omega’s proprietary rose gold alloy. It’s roughly 75% gold, 1-2% palladium (for strength) and about 20% copper, for colouring. The name comes from the planetoid Sedna, the most distant identified object in our solar system, which it turns out is also known for being the reddest object in the solar system.

So, when Sedna meets the Dark Side of the Moon, this is what you get: a black ceramic case with a brushed gold bezel, black ceramic bezel insert with matt chromium nitride tachymeter numerals, and Sedna gold hands and hour indexes. The hour markers, hands and dots at 12 o’clock are all coated with the same “vintage” luminova as the Speedmaster DSoM “Vintage Black”, and last but not least, all the dial text and minute/second tracks are laser ablated in relief from the matt grey dial.

Omega replica Speedmaster Dark Side of the Moon “Pitch Black”


This is where the new Omega replica watches nomenclature begins to split hairs. Welcome to the Speedmaster Dark Side of the Moon “Pitch Black”. As with the “Vintage Black”, the case, bezel, dial and clasp are all black ceramic. It’s got the blackened applied subdials of the “Vintage Black” as opposed to the laser-ablated dial of the “Sedna Black”; the key difference here is the use of traditional white-green luminova on everything: the hands, the chronograph hands (which are actually white underneath the lume), the hour indexes and the tachymetre bezel. The “Pitch Black” comes on a black leather strap with white stitching.

Speedmaster Dark Side of the Moon “Black Black”

Omega-Dark-Side-of-the-Moon-Black-BlackWhat’s blacker than pitch black? After some head-scratching, Omega’s branding department came up with… “Black Black”. So, this is the Batman-friendly, none-more-black, so-black-they-named-it-twice Speedmaster Dark Side of the Moon “Black Black”. The “Black Black” looks at the “Pitch Black” and thinks ‘you call that black?’ Everything is black ceramic, and for a more ‘special ops’ type feel, it comes on a black nylon strap rather than leather. The dial finish is laser-applied to give some differentiation between text and background, and to allow you to actually see the minute and second markers, and chronograph subdial markers.

The Speedmaster Dark Side of the Moon “Black Black” is actually – perhaps fittingly – more legible at night, thanks to the presence of black superluminova on the hour indexes, all the hands, and the two dots at 12 o’clock.

All Dark Side of the Moon Speedmasters are variants of the same two register Speedmaster, with the Omega co-axial 9300 caliber and silicon balance spring. It’s a twin-barrel, 60-hour power reserve, column-wheel chronograph – not the manual-winding caliber of the “true” Moon replica Omega watches, but a whole lot of horology for your money. They are all water-resistant to 50m and all measure 44.25mm in diameter.

The other side of the story

After the Dark Side of the Moon, of course, also came the Grey Side of the Moon. While it wasn’t as impactful as the Dark Side – suffering slightly from ‘second album syndrome’ – it made a certain degree of sense. Pushing on with the research into coloured ceramics was only to be expected, and the attention to detail has been retained with the sandblasted platinum dial and blue luminova.

This year, as well as the various “Black” editions, Omega has released the Speedmaster White Side of the Moon. It’s fair to say this wasn’t entirely expected. Whereas the Dark and Grey sides of the moon Replica Omega Classic watches use heat-treated ceramic to gain their respective colours, the White Side of the Moon is essentially the raw, untreated and uncoloured version.


Specification-wise, it too is the same as the original Dark Side of the Moon, using the same co-axial column-wheel chronograph calibre 9300. It’s the same size, the same water-resistance and the same two-register layout. But it could hardly be more of a departure stylistically. The hour indexes are 18k white gold, as are the central hour and minute hands. The red “Speedmaster” text is retained from the Dark Side of the Moon, and the tachymetre bezel uses the same laser-engraved matt finish chromium nitride as the original, as well.


The Speedmaster White Side of the Moon comes on a white leather strap, similar in style to the black leather strap of the “Sedna Black” edition, with red stitching on the inside to match the “Speedmaster” dial text. Whether this is destined to be as well-received as the Dark Side of the Moon, time will tell. It’s certainly evidence that Omega replica watches is keen to push the aesthetic applications of their experiments with ceramic as far as possible, and it may well be that we haven’t seen the last colour variant in this family. Does the Moon have a blue side?

Introducing the 2015 New Omega Replica Seamaster 300 “Spectre” Limited Edition

Daniel Craig will wear the Replica Omega Seamaster 300 “Spectre” Limited Edition in the next James Bond film SPECTRE that comes out November 6th, 2015. And yes, you will be able to buy the exact watch that he wears in the movie. It will be available in a 7007-piece limited edition starting in September.


The Omega Replica Seamaster 300 Spectre comes in the same 41 mm diameter case and has the same caliber 8400 Master Co-Axial movement. What is different is the 0-60 dive scale has been replaced with a 0-12 scale on the ceramic bezel, which some commenters have rumored was done as part of the plot of the movie. I guess we will have to wait to see if that holds true. In addition, the Arabic numeral at 12 has been removed and the Omega logo has been moved up in place of it. And instead of a Replica Omega Hour Vision leather strap or stainless steel bracelet, this edition comes with a black and grey NATO strap, similar to the strap Sean Conner wore on his Rolex in Dr No, the first James Bond film. Such a great choice by Omega going with the NATO. Finally, the seconds hand has a lollipop tip as seen on the some early vintage Seamasters.


Personally, I am not a fan of the standard production vintage-inspired Seamaster 300. This, however, in my opinion is a much better execution of essentially the same watch. In the finicky world of 2015 Omega replica watches collecting, little details make a huge difference.

Cheap Fake Omega Watches Sale Online,Omega Replica Wathes for Women

Ol’ Ben Franklin has been having a big month. Not only has the founding father been revealed as secondary mascot of the Philadelphia 76ers basketball team, MeisterSinger have released a watch honoring his life. It may seem strange to US citizens that a German brand would create a watch in homage to a famous American, but Benjamin Franklin is highly thought of in Europe as as well as in his native New World. The release of the Omega replica watches remembers the man who made such good use of the time he had on this Earth.

A frequent visitor to England, Franklin was friends with some very important people in the London area. He was reputedly a member of Sir Francis Dashwood’s Hell-fire Club that met in the chalk caves of West Wycombe, Buckinghamshire. There they discussed politics, pretty girls, and where to find the best pint of English ale. Franklin had an interest for horology, which was further stoked by a 1770 visit to England, where he happened upon famous horologist James Ferguson (among others). Franklin’s technical discussions with Ferguson revealed a mind well-versed in the nature of mechanical timepieces. He even went as far as to conceive a mechanism himself. Regrettably, he never patented or realised his three wheel, two weights, and one pendulum design, but he no doubt would have cast a discerning and knowledgeable eye over MeisterSinger’s latest offering, which is based on his ideas that in the past was rendered in several clock forms.


The Omega certainly looks the part. With a dial that features italicised minute markers, pad printed in a tiny scroll around the edge of the generously sized dial, and a parchment-inspired colourway, it doesn’t take too much imagination to realise it’s supposed to make us think of the constitution he helped pen. Notice, though, that the minutes are repeated four times over. This is important to the way in which this fake Omega watch is read. Set within a 43mm stainless steel case, the requirements of the mechanism are minimal. An ETA 6498 (with a power reserve of 46 hours) has been modified to carry one hand that makes one revolution of the dial every 12 hours.

MeisterSinger are known for their single-handed approach. It is pleasing to see they’ve stuck with it here. Love or hate this Replica Omega Ladymatic watches, it’s great to see a brand sticking so firmly to its original principles. There are some models from this German brand that do not adhere to this principle and for that reason they are, in my opinion, the least interesting of MeisterSinger’s products. So how do we interpret the time from this crazy contraption? Well, in order to accurately read the watch, you need to have a rough idea of the time (within about four hours should do).

If you take a close look at the above image, you will see that the dial is split into four quadrants. Hours 12, 4, and 8, occupy the ‘northern’ quadrant. The minutes, which repeat from 60-59 four times in total, begin at the four compass points of the Replica Omega Constellation watches (so there is a 60 minute marker at 12 as one might expect to see). In this press image, the hand has moved past 12/4/8 and is resting around the 33 minute marker. This means it is either 12:33, 4:33, or 8:33. This is great if you are outside (or standing next to another clock), so you can use the sun (or another clock) as a reference point; it is totally useless if you, like Benjamin Franklin, have been holed-up in an underground network of chalk caves, drinking ale for three days straight and don’t know which way is up, let alone what the time is to the nearest four hours. Plus it hasn’t got any lume. Basically, don’t use this watch in a cave…

Hopefully, though, you will find yourself engaged in far more salubrious pursuits, during which time your Omega will provide you with a dutiful time-telling service, and an interesting conversation starter. As with all MeisterSinger’s wares, they are competitively priced for such an item of interest. I find it aesthetically quite pleasing, but a little too esoteric for my liking. That said, it is certainly handsome and its neutral colour scheme means it will match a lot of outfits. With a price of “about” $4,500 the Omega could be yours. Only 50 pieces will be made available worldwide. A portion of the proceeds from this cheap Omega replica watches will go to the Benjamin Franklin Museum.

Omega Speedmaster ‘Tropical’ Brown Dial Vintage Replica Watches Explained

From roughly 1957 to 1965, a flaw in the manufacturing process of black dials used on the Replica Omega Speedmaster Professional line of watches resulted in the occasional fading of the dial to a shade of brown, sometimes described as “tropical brown” or “chocolate.” Long sought after by collectors, anyone who has looked into purchasing a used Omega Speedmaster Professional will be familiar with their extraordinary prices in relation to non-faded pieces. What caused this defect, and what underlies the huge premiums required to bring one of these watches into your collection? Let’s find out.

Replica Omega Speedmaster

According to Jack Khorsandi, owner of the Los Angeles vintage Omega boutique Jackmond, the fading is a defect caused by the process of dial making during the late 1950’s to early 1960’s. To prevent black dials from fading and losing their vibrancy, a chemical coating was applied to dials before they left the factory, but ironically, after five or so years, in rare cases, the opposite of the intended occurred: the chemical coating reacted with the dial and allowed for faster than normal fading.

Though most prominently associated with Omega Speedmaster Professionals, the fading was not limited to just this model nor to just Omega; Rolex watches from this time period have also been known to fade in a similar way. What is not entirely clear is whether this defect was limited to just Swiss replica Omega watches manufacturers or if it extended out further. It could very well be the case that by the time the process was learned by non-Swiss manufacturers, the defect had been discovered and the chemical coating process was redesigned.

Replica Omega Speedmaster

The “tropical brown” description is rooted in the fact that much of the fading is brought about by prolonged exposure to sunlight. In Switzerland, which is far from the sunny equator, the fading was less noticeable than in countries nearer to it. Thus, “tropical” was used as a descriptor since so many of the Omega Speedmaster “tropical brown” dial watches came from warm regions close to the earth’s zero degree latitude where the sun’s prominence revealed the flaw.

Collectors have been lured to the watches by their rarity and the striking beauty of an Omega Speedmaster Professional Replica “tropical brown,” especially when paired with a strap that compliments or matches the dial’s rich hues. For better or worse, speculators have also been lured to the watches due to their rarity and the perception that the defect will only make the watches more desirable in years to come and return a tidy profit for anyone wise enough to buy now and hold.



Looking at historic sales data for all series of Omega Speedmaster Replica watches on online auction site between December 2014 and March 2015, on average, the Replica Omega Speedmaster “tropical brown” dial color sold for 124 percent more than did watches with a black dial. When filtering for just the Omega Replica Speedmaster Professional that premium jumps up to 334 percent, with an average price for a Omega Replica Speedmaster Professional “tropical brown” topping out at $8,550. The average price of a Omega Replica Speedmaster Professional “tropical brown,” regardless of series, is $4,333.

Whether or not the get-rich-slowly schemes of the speculators will pan out is yet to be seen, but this thinking does go a long way in explaining the huge premiums Omega Speedmaster Professional “tropical brown” dial watches can garner (as mentioned above). What is clear is that due to varying valuations based on the desirability of different shades of brown, watch condition, and the inflation of the market for these Replica Omega De Ville watches fueled by speculation, only a well-researched and committed collector should consider adding one of these rare timepieces to their collection.

If looking at examples of Omega Speedmaster “tropical brown” dials has not convinced you that you need to add one to your collection, take a look at the Omega Speedmaster Mark II. The average price for these was $2,225 for the same time period as the data above and only represents a 27 percent premium over Omega Speedmaster Mark II Replica watches with a black dial.

There is less of a speculative opportunity with this series, but if you like the Replica Omega Speedmaster Mark II and are looking for an interesting addition to your collection, the Replica Omega Speedmaster Professional “tropical brown” version may be worth looking into, especially if you have a nice brown leather strap laying around that needs something to pair with it.
