The minute repeater is widely considered to be one of the most complex and difficult-to-produce complications in all of mechanical watchmaking. A rattrapante, or split-seconds Replica chronograph, is another high-complexity complication, elevating the common chronograph to the upper echelons of mechanical watchmaking. These two complications, on their own, represent massive efforts in design and craftsmanship. No brand has ever combined these two extremely complex mechanisms into a single unified complication – until now.
For Omega’s latest release, the brand has announced not one, but two iterations of its new proprietary Chrono Chime, combining a fully functional split-seconds chronograph with a chiming mechanism designed to audibly read out the chronograph’s elapsed time to the nearest second. Representing over six years of work and over 575 movement components, the new Omega Speedmaster Chrono Chime and the AAA Omega Replica Watches stand as the new peak of Omega’s ultra-high-end output, offering both stunning mechanical innovations and a series of uniquely attractive visual flourishes.
Inspired by the ‘60s era Speedmaster CK 2998 “Ed White,” the 45mm-wide 18k Sedna Gold case offers an upsized but impressively wearable take on the classic straight-lug Speedmaster form. Of course, the unusual pusher arrangement immediately sets this apart from the standard Speedmaster design on the wrist, with a crown-mounted chronograph monopusher at 3 o’clock, a 2 o’clock split-second pusher rimmed with a red ceramic accent ring, and a chime pusher at 8 o’clock, topped with a musical note motif.
Created by grinding aventurine glass into a paste and applying it to the bezel surface with a Grand Feu enamel process, this striking material adds a touch of sparkling mystery to the watch on the wrist. Around back, Cheap Omega Replica adds a sapphire display caseback to capture the complexity of its new in-house Calibre 1932 movement and mounts the watch on a Sedna gold variant of the famed Speedmaster “Nixon” bracelet.
For the dial of the Speedmaster Chrono Chime, Omega extends the dark, moody aventurine enamel across the entire main dial surface. In practice, this new pattern offers an impressive level of both reflectivity and texture, particularly when paired with the blued CVD subdial hands, but can come across as visually busy from certain angles. Of course, the real stars of the show here are the exposed chime hammers at 8 o’clock and 10 o’clock.
Thoughtfully framing the Omega Replica Watches 9 o’clock running seconds subdial, these hammers form a bright, immediate visual highlight on the wrist and keep the focus of the overall design front and center. Rosy gilt dial text completes the package here, maintaining the overall sense of rich, masculine warmth.
The Calibre 1932 offers the first Omega co-axial escapement to achieve a 36,000 bph beat rate, along with a solid 60-hour power reserve. Omega also has the Calibre 1932 certified to the stringent Master Chronometer standard by METAS. Aesthetically, Omega Best replica watches works to match the design of the Calibre 1932 to its groundbreaking performance, with an intricate series of circular Sedna gold bridges and plates finished in a high-impact mix of matte frosting with raised, mirror-polished edges.
The rounded, polished 18k Sedna gold case follows the pocket watch-style contours of its 1892 forebear, offering a unique, somewhat floaty wearing experience on the wrist. Compared to its High quality Omega replica shop cousin, the Olympic 1932 Chrono Chime is a bolder, more baroque design, with three unique pusher styles rearranged to accommodate a 12 o’clock crown pushing through the T-shaped lug. This also requires a unique fitment for the honey-brown alligator leather strap.
