Omega Speedmaster Replica Watches Blue Side Of The Moon

Rado is known for their ceramic watches for a long time already, but nowadays many watch brands have watches with ceramic casings in their program. The Omega Speedmaster Replica Blue Side of the Moon I’m wearing this week is not really an exception there. But why would a watch manufacturer choose ceramic as material for a watch casing?

The main reason would be the enhanced scratch resistance compared to stainless steel. And even more to precious materials like gold an platinum.Now all ceramics are harder than steel and/or gold. However, Omega Speedmaster Replica Watches they’re much easier to break or shatter as well.In fact, Zirconium Dioxide has the highest mechanical strength and fracture toughness of all major fine ceramics. These characteristics result in an extremely high resistance against wear.

Besides this strength, ZrO2 for a ceramic has a relatively high thermal expansion. As not all components of a wristwatch can be made of ceramics, metals have to be used in the construction as well. Think of the movement, winding shaft, etc. The thermal expansion of ZrO2 is almost equal to that of steel, and therefore often the material of choice for joining these materials.

Raw Zirconium Oxide is a white crystalline oxide made by heating to high temperatures in air or oxygen of Zirconium. The principal commercial source of Zirconium is the mineral Zircon. Two-thirds of Zircon mining occurs in Australia and South Africa. The worldwide annual total Zirconium production is approximately 1.5 million tonnes, which obviously isn’t all used for producing watch casings.

Best Omega Replica Watches Review full official model indication of the Omega Speedmaster Blue Side of the Moon I’m wearing is ‘Omega Speedmaster Moonwatch Co-Axial Chronometer Moonphase Chronograph 44.25 mm’. No less. This immediately informs about the diameter of the watch, which is rather impressive as well. In my opinion, however, it’s OK-ish for a chronograph of this importance.

Best Omega Seamaster 300M Watches Review

Besides the three-hand version, Omega also introduced the Seamaster 300M Chronograph Replica and a Seamaster 300M GMT Replica. Some of the models became available in a variety of materials and sizes. Back to the ‘regular’ 41mm diameter Seamaster 300M though. The 2531.80 would be the reference to be addressed as sleeper in Balazs’ article from 2014.

The bracelet of the Omega Seamaster 300M received as much love as it was cursed on, but in the end it proofed to be a very comfortable bracelet. With a divers extension. A rubber strap could also be ordered for the Omega Seamaster 300M Replica Watches, a blue double ridged strap with folding buckle was one of the available choices at the time. This model, with black dial, triangle/trapezoid shaped hour markers and Speedmaster-style bracelet, is a bit more rare and stealthy.The main issue is that these are a bit harder to source.

If you counted with us, this year marks the 25th anniversary of the Best Omega Replica Watches Review. A good moment to reflect on this piece. For a long time, this watch had 1990’s written all over it for me. Especially due to the bracelet with its many links. However, after having purchased the chronograph diver 2296.80 last year, the itch started a bit. I have bought and sold a number of Seamaster 300M 2531.80 watches, and since last summer I started to look for a good proposal. The Seamaster 300M must have been – and probably still is – one of the bread and butter watches for Omega, for 25 years now.
