The Speedmaster is Omega’s claim to fame for being the chronograph that the brand sent into space – and to the moon. When the doomed Apollo 13 had to make a manual course correction to correct its trajectory and return its three astronauts to Earth, the 14-second long firing of the rockets was also timed by a Speedmaster.
First introduced in 1957, the Omega Speedmaster Replica Watches hallmarks include a hyper-legible tri-compax dial, the baton indexes, and a thin bezel printed with a tachymeter scale. Numerous variations of the watch have been introduced over the years for different purposes, including experimental models such as the “Alaska Project” meant for even more extreme environments.
The most well-loved model remains the Buy Luxury Speedmaster Professional “Moonwatch” With Crypto, which has remained practically unchanged since the revision of its movement from 1968, down to its acrylic Haselite crystal.
IWC Pilot’s Watch Mark XVIII
The Pilot’s Watch Mark XVIII traces its lineage back to the observation watches produced by IWC in the 1940s, and bears the same design codes of the original. Bold sword-shaped hands, large Arabic numeral indexes, a triangle flanked by two dots at 12 o’clock, and a stark white-on-black colour scheme all serve to make the watch extremely legible – a crucial requirement for flight navigators who issued with the originals.
The Pilot’s AAA Replica Watches has evolved with the times though. At 40mm, it’s an infinitely better fit on the wrist compared to the original’s 55mm sizing. The addition of a simple date window at 3 o’clock is another reflection of the zeitgeist, as is its self-winding movement.
