Omega Updates Speedmaster 38mm Collection with Four New Gold Editions

Omega Replica unveiled the latest updates to its ever-popular Speedmaster line, with four new references being added to the women-focused Speedmaster 38mm collection. These new include two Sedna gold models and two yellow-gold editions, both precious-metal varieties offering either a diamond-bezel or a sans-diamonds option.

For those familiar with the Replica Speedmaster 38mm design, the new watches are mostly more of the same, though now featuring the new materials and accompanying colorways. The yellow-gold options use a silver dial with green accents and are strapped on a green crocodile strap, while the Sedna gold models uses a cappuccino-colored dial with brown accents and are strapped on a taupe strap

Each of the 38-mm cases are produced in the iconic, twisted-lug Speedmaster style, alongside large pump pushers and a signed crown on their right side. The dial is surrounded by a fixed tachymeter bezel in each watch’s accent color; the diamond versions feature a two-layer look with the tachymeter on the inside and the diamonds outlining it.

Sweeping over the dial are two simple lume-filled pointers for the hours and minutes, while a familiar Speedmaster-style hand serves its traditional role as the chronograph seconds counter.

Lens Position: 6542

Inside the new models is the Omega Replica Watch 3330 Caliber, an automatic movement boasting a 52-hour power reserve that features, like nearly all modern Omega movements, a co-axial escapement, a free sprung-balance, and a silicon balance spring. The movement is protected via a solid caseback with an engraved seahorse design.

AAA Replica IWC Portugieser Collection Reaches New Pinnacles

The new Replica Portugieser Tourbillon Rétrograde Chronograph (ref. IW3940) and Portugieser Perpetual Calendar Tourbillon (ref. IW5045).

The Portugieser Perpetual Calendar Tourbillon has a 45-mm Portugieser case, with curved lugs and a relatively large crown. The AAA IWC Replica Watch dial’s outer edge features a railroad minute track recalling the marine chronometers that originally inspired the series, while applied Arabic numerals decorate most hour positions.

This array of functions is powered by the Fake IWC Caliber 51950, an automatic movement with a gold oscillating rotor, visible via a sapphire caseback. Both the blue-dial and silver-dial versions of the watch are secured to the wrist via a blue alligator leather strap by Santoni.

The IWC Replica logo occupies the 3 o’clock position, while opposite it is a very uncommon retrograde date indicator that might appear at first glance, to the uninformed eye, as a power-reserve display. At 6 o’clock is the openworked tourbillon, outlined with a precious metal ring.

Inside the new Tourbillon Rétrograde Chronograph is the IWC Fake Watches caliber 89900, made in-house by the brand. Like the movement powering its perpetual calendar-equipped sibling, this watch’s automatic mechanism features a gold oscillating weight, though it offers a smaller power reserve of 68 hours.
