Omega Speedmaster Co-Axial Chronograph

A few years ago, Omega introduced a retro-styled version of its well-known Speedmaster chronograph watch, the Omega Speedmaster Replica Watches Chronograph, named for the year of the first Speedmaster’s release and featuring that original model’s straight lugs that extend from the case and its familiar bracelet. Here’s a closer look.

The 56-year-old Omega Speedmaster is known as the “moonwatch” by collectors because of its unique role as the wristwatch worn by NASA astronauts for all six lunar landings, even though the watch itself was developed more than a decade before human beings set foot on the moon. The Cheap Omega Replica adds several modern touches that distinguish it both aesthetically and technologically from its predecessor. The movement is Omega’s co-axial Calibers 9300 (in the steel, titanium and two-tone steel/gold versions) and 9301, which has a column-wheel chronograph incorporating both the 12-hour and 60-minute counter hands onto a single subdial.

This arrangement means that the chronograph hours and minutes can be read together intuitively, much like the hours and minutes on the main dial. It also allows for a modern redesign of the Omega Replica old tricompax dial design: there are now two subdials rather than three, with hours and minutes at 3 o’clock and small seconds at 9 o’clock. The date window occupies a window at 6 o’clock, while a center-mounted hand tallies chronograph seconds. Another hallmark of the movement’s design is that the two chronograph pushers function independently of each other, so there is not risk of inadvertently operating the Omega Replica Watches chronograph mechanism. The brushed bezel displays the model’s traditional tachymeter scale. The 41.5-mm case is water-resistant to 100 meters.

Several variations of this vintage-styled timepiece are available, including models in both a yellow-gold or rose gold case. Each comes on either a matching bracelet or a leather strap — black for the rose-gold watch, brown for the yellow-gold, and each is offered with a black or silvery-white dial. The indices on both models are made of gold and coated with Super-LumiNova. Another version, in lightweight grade 5 titanium, has a white dial and blued hands and is available on a titanium bracelet or leather strap. There are also stainless steel Cheap Omega Replica models with a range of dial choices including black or blue PVD with rhodium-plated indices and silver-colored with gold applied indices. These models are also available on brown leather straps or steel bracelets. The bi-color steel and 18k gold versions offer either a silvery-colored or black dial, paired with either a leather strap or a gold-and-steel two-tone bracelet.

Vintage Eye for the Modern Guy: Omega Globemaster

In recent times, consecutive years have meant more and more brands releasing vintage re-interpretations and recreations; 2015 was no different, being one of the biggest years for historical watch releases to date. Cheap Omega Replica, a brand holding a relatively large segment of market power in the luxury-watch realm, was one of the main contributors to this trend—leading the pack with more Speedmasters, more Seamasters, and — possibly most significantly of all — a new piece in the Constellation series: the Globemaster.

This new watch, for many not familiar with the historical Omega Constellation series, seems far different than any of its modern counterparts. At first this seems in line with Omega Replica; the brand has certainly been known to release multiple “sub-series” of watches within a larger collection. And while the Globemaster would certainly fit the bill for the brand’s nontraditional organization of watches, it is much more exciting when one realizes that it draws many of its design elements from the beginnings of the Constellation series, dating back to 1952.

Many decades ago, the Omega Constellation series was unrecognizable compared to the collections of today. The pieces had reverse “pie-pan” dials, dauphine hands, diamond hour markers, and unconventionally fancy crowns and lugs. It was not until the late 1980s that a major shift in that series occurred, when Omega Replica Watches began producing the “Manhattan”-styled watches we are more familiar with today — “claws” holding the crystal, an integrated bracelet, Roman numerals on the bezel, and — for the most part — quartz movements.

The piece, available in a 39-mm Sedna gold, yellow gold, steel, or yellow-gold-and-steel case, has the reverse pie-pan dial, applied hours markers, fluted bezel, and a date indicator at the unusual 6 o’clock position. The watch is powered by Omega’s Replica Watches automatic Caliber Omega 8900 — a new movement the brand is championing as its best yet for precision, durability, et cetera. Other interesting features to notice include the signature Constellation star toward the bottom of the dial, the clear caseback with a set Constellation observatory medallion, and, beneath this, the exposed and beautifully finished Master Co-axial movement.

As I mentioned above, the Globemaster is neither a re-interpretation nor a recreation of the original 1952 Omega Constellation, but I sort of enjoy this about the watch. While of course I would love a modern reverse-pie-pan Omega in 35-mm or 36-mm case with diamond hour markers and dauphine hands, I think Cheap Replica Watches Omega made the correct decision by using some elements of the collection’s history to inspire a completely new piece. In this way, Omega was able to release a new, fantastic movement in a memorable fashion; take advantage of the fluted bezel; and, finally, produce a watch displaying the brand’s awareness of its history while still continuing its sprint forward into the future. Simply put, I find this to be a cool watch guaranteed to remain in your, and eventually your children’s, possession for a long while.
