The big names in the industry create everything from copy dive watches to dress models, chronographs to GMTs, and the very simple to the ultra-complicated.Right up among the very best for offering an all-encompassing selection is Omega, whose current portfolio is simply vast.
Ask any enthusiast to name the first luxury mechanical chronograph that springs to mind and you’re going to hear one of two answers; the Rolex Daytona or the Omega Speedmaster Replica Watches. Easily among the most famous and recognizable Omega watches ever produced, the Speedmaster has been around, in one form or another, since 1957. The first watch to move the tachymeter scale to the bezel rather than around the edge of the dial, it can legitimately be thought of as the granddaddy of the modern chronograph wristwatch.
Today, the Speedmaster name is used for a diverse assortment of different chronograph watches in the Omega Replica catalog; everything from faithful reimaginings of that 1957 originator, to hybrid analog/digital models for a new breed of astronaut – and that’s not even including the endless procession of limited editions that join the rest of the standard-production Omega watches.
However, our pick would be the classic Omega Speedmaster Professional Fake Moonwatch, which adheres closely to the design of the original models that went to the moon, complete with a Hesilite crystal and manually-wound movement.
The Omega Speedmaster Replica is one of the most intriguing timepieces ever produced.Enthusiasts often refer to the Omega Speedmaster as the “Moonwatch” because it was the first timepiece worn on the surface of the Moon and participated in every lunar mission that followed.
Speedmaster Professional Vs. Speedmaster MKII
For starters, the AAA Speedmaster Mark II Replica Watch features a much bulkier, barrel-shaped case with beveled edges. The Tachymeter scale is not presented on an external bezel like the Speedmaster Pro. Instead, it is fixed on the underside of its flat the crystal.
The overall design of the Omega Speedmaster MKII was intentionally different than that of the Speedmaster professional, which was developed to cater to emerging watch trends in the 1970s.
Omega Speedmaster Mark II: Old Vs. New
The original Omega Replica Watch was followed up with several variations that were appropriately named the Mark III through the Mark V, with differences present between each version. The Speedmaster MKV was introduced in 1984 and was the last in the line until just recently.
Both the old and new versions of the Mark II dial feature a similar case and bracelet with the earlier models measuring 41mm in diameter and the latest models measuring 42mm Omega Replica. The bracelet also received an upgrade from a simple folding clasp to a modern twin trigger release clasp.
There are also slight nuances between the dials with the newer model featuring improved Super-LumiNova and the addition of a date display. As mentioned above, the newer model also received a self-winding Co-Axial movement.
The new 39.70 timepiece has a bezel ring in polished black ceramic (ZrO2). The tachymeter scale is in white enamel.
On the step dial are classic Fake Omega Moonwatch hands, small seconds sub-dial, 30-minute recorder and 12-hour recorder, and central chronograph hand. The vintage OMEGA logo is proudly and tastefully displayed throughout the watch.
The sapphire crystal caseback allows the 321’s to be viewed in all its splendor.
The Calibre 321 was the first movement used in the Omega Replica Speedmaster back in 1957, a precursor to the Speedmaster ST 105.012, the first watch to be worn on the Moon.
