The legendary Omega Speedmaster Replica has a long and fascinating history, along with some very famous associations, and the brand can usually capitalize on them effectively.
Omega Speedmaster Apollo 11 50th Anniversary
The Omega Replica step dial was finished with a grey lacquer, ringed by a black minute track and given one ultra subtle detail just for the eagle-eyed – instead of an applied gold baton as with the rest of the hour markers, the 11 o’clock index was an actual numeral ‘11’ to designate that fabled Apollo mission.
However, far more noticeable was the image engraved into the running seconds chronograph counter, a relief representation of the image of Aldrin descending the landing craft ladder onto the moon.
Omega Speedmaster Schumacher Legend
Among the most popular remains the Fake Speedmaster Legend 3559.32.00, created to honor the occasion on which he became the most successful driver in Formula 1 history, winning his sixth world title in 2003. Of those, the white ‘Panda’ dial was clearly the most sought after, and one look will tell you why. With its black sub-dials over the cream-colored face, and a red encircling minute track, it could easily be mistaken for that mythical beast, the Paul Newman Daytona.
The steel asymmetrical case stays at 42mm, with the familiar mix of brushed and polished surfaces. Turn it over and you will find the brand’s Hippocampus logo engraved in the middle, with ‘Michael Schumacher The Legend’ in red around the outside.
Omega Speedmaster Speedy Tuesday ‘Ultraman’ 2
This new AAA Replica Watch was packed with orange accenting – on the ‘Speedmaster’ signature, above each hour marker, on the ‘TACHYMETRE’ script along the bezel as well as the first three minutes of the right hand sub dial, on both the NATO and leather strap with which it was supplied, and on the chronograph seconds hand.
Shine the light on the watch and you unveil the silhouette of his mask, in orange of course. Coupled with all that were a host of nostalgic design touches, such as the step dial, the retro Omega logo and the DON bezel.
