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.
