Omega Replica Speedmaster Dark Side of the Moon Apollo 8

The new Apollo 8. A hybrid of sorts, the Apollo 8 shares the black ceramic case of the Dark Side of the Moon collection but has jettisoned its automatic co-axial engine in favour of Omega Speedmaster Replica legendary calibre 1861, the manual-wound movement of the classic Moonwatch.

Apollo 8: The Latest Member In The Dark Side Of The Moon Family

The 44.25mm cases of this collection are crafted in high-tech black ceramic. In this respect, the new Apollo 8 follows suit and is decked out in a striking black ceramic case – but that’s where the similarities end.

Unlike the regular Dark Side of the Moon chronographs that are fitted with calibre 9300, Omega’s proprietary automatic co-axial movement, the Omega Replica Watches Apollo 8 flaunts manual-winding calibre 1869, a version of Omega’s celebrated calibre 1861. The dial of the Apollo 8 is a radical departure from other dials in the Dark Side collection and abandons the twin sub-dial layout and date window in favour of a more traditional display of three counters with no date.

Lunar Surface

Almost suspended in space, the three sub-dials are arranged in a classic Swiss Luxury Fake Watchesconfiguration. While the chronograph counters at 3 and 6 o’clock are snailed, the small seconds counter features a great detail: if you look closely you will notice how the uneven lunar surface of the underlying bridges invade the background of the sub-dial configuration.
