Omega has bestowed its latest generation Master Co-Axial movement on the Speedmaster, along with a moon phase so detailed it reveals an astronaut’s footprint on its surface.
Omega will unveil the Speedmaster Moonphase Master Chronometer Replica, an enhanced version of its classic with a moon phase display at six o’clock. It’s powered by the newest Omega movement, the calibre 9904, which includes all of the brand’s innovations, including exceptional magnetism resistance and an Si14 silicon hairspring.
Though the look is instantly recognisable as a Speedmaster, the new moon phase model is clearly a modern AAA Omega Replica watch. Stainless steel and 44.25 mm in diameter, the Speedmaster Moonphase has a blue ceramic bezel insert, matched with a metallic blue dial.
Two sub-dials give the face a symmetric layout: the left register is for the constant seconds and date, while the right sub-dial combines both the Luxury Fake Watches hour and minute counters. The moon phase display features a photorealistic depiction of the moon, one so detailed an astronaut’s footprint can be seen up close.
This is not the first Omega Replica Speedmaster moon phase chronograph, however, it’s the first with an in-house movement; earlier generations were powered by the hand-wound Lemania 1872.
The Omega Replica Watches Speedy Tuesday is based on the Alaska Project III, an experimental wristwatch conceived in 1978, the third in a series of watches Omega produced for NASA in the quest for a timepiece resistant to extreme temperatures. The key feature derived from the Alaska Project III are the radial sub-dials, with markings positioned concentrically on their edge.
But the Speedy Tuesday is not an exact replica of the Alaska Project III, so the rest of its design details are a pastiche of various vintage Speedmasters. They include the applied Omega Replica logo at 12 o’clock, as well as the “Reverse Panda” colour scheme of white sub-dials on a black dial.All three sub-dials, as well as dial markings, hands and hour markers, have been painted with Swiss Omega Watches Super-Luminova that glows pale green in the dark.
The Speedy Tuesday has a standard 42mm Speedmaster Replica Watches case with lyre lugs, but with a brushed finish on every surface, instead of the alternating brushed and polished finish of the ordinary Speedmaster.
The solid case back is engraved with the usual limited edition nomenclature, as well as “RADIAL” in large letters on its rim. Underneath is a rhodium-plated calibre 861, the hand-wound movement based on the Fake Omega Watches Ebay Lemania 1873 that’s been a fixture in the Speedmaster since 1968.
