Can The 2021 UK High-quality Replica Omega Speedmaster Moonwatch Professional Still Be Considered A Moonwatch?

The launch of the latest Swiss made fake Omega Speedmaster Moonwatch generated a murmur amongst Speedy enthusiasts. Voiced around the world, we have seen this question or better said, remark, popping up quite frequently. So I am here today to try and address the burning question: can the current Omega Speedmaster Moonwatch replica still be considered a Moonwatch? And while I’m at it, I’ll be looking at other perfect Omega Speedmaster fake watches to see how they hold up when faced with this same scrutiny.

In getting right to the point regarding the latest Speedmaster released by Swiss made fake Omega earlier this year, the short answer is quite simply “no”. Strictly speaking, the Speedmaster fake watches that were worn on the moon were references 105.003, 105.012, and 145.012. These watches were equipped with the iconic caliber 321 chronograph movement, and hold a number of differences to the most modern reference of today. So, when interpreting this question in the strictest possible sense, it would be only those three references that could be considered true replica Moonwatches. However, a broader understanding allows for some wiggle room for where we can apply the term.

Is the best fake Omega Speedmaster Professional still a Moonwatch?

Let’s have a closer look at the evolution of the Speedmaster Professional and see if this chronograph still has Moonwatch bragging rights.

The successor to the 4th generation of Speedmaster fake watches (ref. 105.012 and 145.012), the Speedmaster Professional reference 145.022, was introduced in 1968 and featured some small changes. For example, on the dial (except for the first iteration of the 145.022) where there was no more applied logo. The hands were also different, but the most important change was a new movement. It was equipped with caliber 861. Instead of a column-wheel mechanism, caliber 861 uses a shuttle-cam system for the chronograph operation. Also, the frequency increased from 18,000 vph to 21,600 vph for higher stability (and therefore accuracy). Interestingly, this watch was never shipped to NASA for use during Apollo missions. Only the caliber 321 models of that time were sent to NASA.

Evolution of Omega Speedmaster replica watches UK

Although the new perfect fake Speedmaster Professional 145.022 was near the moon in 1972, when used onboard during Apollo 17, it wasn’t actually worn on the moon. In 1978, the Speedmaster Professional 145.022 was qualified for use during the Space Shuttle missions that started in 1981. This qualification came after a series of tests that were like the original tests from 1965 (we listed them here). The big difference was that the Speedmaster Professional 145.022 was tested by Omega replica, but according to the same framework set by NASA. For the nay-sayers that don’t think the current Speedmaster Professional is a Moonwatch or should have the “Flight-Qualified by NASA” text engraved, the 145.022 with its similar engraving wasn’t tested or qualified until 1978 while the engraving was used from 1969 onwards.

Interesting to note is that Swiss made fake Omega only sent a batch of 56 of these Speedmaster Professional 145.022 watches, with the “radial dial”, for use during the Space Shuttle program. Later on, NASA started using Speedmaster X-33 watches. Roscosmos started giving the Speedmaster Professional to its cosmonauts as well, and later on added the Speedmaster X-33. Today, all astronauts and cosmonauts who leave earth via Russian ground receive both watches.

The caliber 1861 makes its debut

Until 1996, Omega replica used caliber 861 for the Speedmaster Professional Moonwatch. There were some exceptions, however. Such as the more nicely decorated 863 movements and the chronometer-certified caliber 864 movements. Also part of the exception is the caliber 866 with an additional moon phase and calendar complication. After that, super clone Omega started using caliber 1861. This movement was nearly identical to the very last iteration of the caliber 861 (there’s some degree of variation in this movement from its introduction until its discontinuation). The movement had a rhodium finish and an extra jewel (also there in the last iteration of caliber 861) but still used the Delrin brake, for example.

The specifications also didn’t really change. The layout of the chronograph remained the same and the performance was also within -1/+11 seconds per day on average. This watch has not been used on the moon, but the AAA best UK sale fake Omega Speedmaster Professional Moonwatch caliber 1861 has been used in space, as described above. I never found much discussion on the fact this watch was called the Moonwatch without having ever been on the moon. It also never went up for testing or qualification by NASA for any space program. You might say that the differences between the 861 and 1861 calibers are so small, they can be neglected for the purpose of this article.

Caliber 3861, still Moonwatch enough?

Now, enter 2021. UK best fake Omega introduces the new perfect replica Omega Speedmaster Professional reference 310.30.42.50.01.001 (version with the Hesalite) and three other variations. Omega replica brought back the exact same case design as the reference 105.12, a step-dial, the Dot-Over-Ninety bezel, the typical drop-counterweight chronograph second’s hand, and the case back with an extra bevel. You can read about the biggest changes compared to its predecessor here. But in general, the new caliber 3861 triggered the discussion of whether this watch can be called a Moonwatch.

This movement is based on Swiss made fake Omega’s caliber 1861, which is in its turn based on the Lemania 1871. The layout of the movement remained the same (very important, also for the dial design), with subdials that are exactly 6.7mm from the center pinion, for example. The movement received a new (Co-Axial escapement) and it uses parts of non-magnetic alloys to meet the Master Chronometer requirement for being anti-magnetic up to > 15,000 gauss.

Now, although NASA didn’t ask for new watches (yet), the replica Omega Speedmaster Professional with caliber 3861 has been tested against the same standards that were used for the previous qualification. And even though it was a short ride, the Blue Origin crew did wear the new Omega Speedmaster Professional replica in space.

Is the fake Speedmaster Calibre 321 a Moonwatch?

Let me add another Speedmaster to the mix. AAA high-quality fake Omega introduced its Speedmaster Calibre 321 reference 311.30.40.30.01.001 last year, and it is inspired by the Speedmaster reference 105.003 worn by astronauts like Ed White. The 105.003 was also the last watch worn on the Moon, on the wrist of Gene Cernan. His watch — now in the replica Omega Museum in Biel — was scanned (using tomography) to retrieve CAD files for rebuilding the exact same watch (and caliber 321).

Is the Speedmaster Calibre 321 therefore more worthy of the Moonwatch name? If the movement is holding you back when it comes to calling the new Speedmaster Professional a Moonwatch, it shouldn’t be the case for the Speedmaster Calibre 321. Admittedly, the new “105.003” uses a sapphire crystal and a ceramic bezel, components that were different from the original Moonwatch with this reference. But would these small changes be enough to strip it of its title?

An Omega Speedmaster Professional Moonwatch replica UK

Now that I’ve drawn a quick picture of the Moonwatch and its evolution, does it change the short answer I had at the beginning of the article? Well, technically speaking it is still not the Moonwatch. I would say that this is reserved for the replica Speedmaster references 105.003, 105.012, and 145.012. But I am totally fine with calling this watch a Moonwatch. It is a direct descendent of the Moonwatch, and its new design shares more design cues with the perfect UK sale replica Omega Speedmaster Moonwatch from the 1960s than the previous contemporary references did. It’s a tribute to those Speedmasters that were used on the Moon, and aside from the movement, it comes pretty darn close. So I put it up to you — should the Moonwatch title be granted to the new super clone Omega Speedmaster Professional? Let me know in the comments below.

In-Depth Perfect UK Sale Replica Omega 125th Anniversary Pocket Watch With Historic 19-Ligne Calibre

If the project had been announced a couple of years ago, we had not got the chance to go hands-on with the commemorative pocket watch released to celebrate the 125th anniversary of the Swiss made replica Omega name. On the occasion of the visit to the AAA high-quality fake Omega headquarters in Biel, we were finally able to take to a look at this fascinating timepiece. And this was well worth the wait, in particular in view of the work performed in the reconstruction of the famous 19-ligne calibre powering the watch, partially using original parts…

BACKGROUND

If the roots of best UK sale replica Omega go as far back as 1848, when Louis Brandt set up an établissage assembling watches in La Chaux-de-Fonds, the Swiss made fake Omega name goes back to 1894 and the presentation of the super clone Omega 19-ligne calibre (a ligne is an ancient French unit of measurement of approximately 2.26mm). Produced in series and based on the innovative principle of interchangeable parts, this movement would be instrumental in cementing the fame of the company and changed its future forever.

Particularly accurate, it also combined winding and time-setting via the crown, which was still a rare feat at the time – the Louis Brandt & Frére patent N°8760 dated August 1st, 1894 corresponds to a keyless mechanism allowing for time setting and winding through a single crown. The combination of both functions was not a first, since Adrien Philippe designed such a mechanism in 1845, but it was still very much of a novelty at the time.

The name Omega replica was chosen as the final letter of the Greek alphabet, standing for the ultimate step in perfection. The success of the perfect replica Omega 19-ligne calibre was such that in 1903, the name of the company itself would be changed to Louis Brandt et Frère – Omega Watch & Co. It was officially produced until 1923.

THE RECREATION OF A LEGENDARY MOVEMENT

To celebrate the 125th anniversary of this legendary movement presented in 1894, Swiss made replica Omega has introduced a superb half-hunter pocket watch powered by a reconstructed 19-ligne movement using original parts stored away for decades. This is not the first “original calibre reconstruction” project by Omega replica, but this is a fascinating project in many respects. The plate, the bridges, the bi-metallic balance spring and the escapement are original. New components were required to bring the calibre to meet modern quality standards, such as the barrel, mainspring, screws, chatons or jewels. The whole gear train was also recalculated. Last but not least, the modern keyless mechanism is another first for the 19-ligne calibre. Each movement comes with its own chronometer certificate attesting to its precision.

The work performed by the watchmakers of the Omega Atelier Tourbillon is a feast for the eyes. This new execution of the iconic movement resulted in the creation of a new Master grade, standing out with exceptional finishing (besides the technical upgrades mentioned above). The untreated German silver bridges and mainplate are meticulously finished, with beautiful chamfers and a damaskeening pattern, following a style first used by Swiss made replica Omega in the earliest years of the 20th century. The black polished steel parts are executed to perfection.

THE OMEGA 125TH ANNIVERSARY POCKET WATCH

The recreated movement is housed in a 60mm half-hunter pocket watch, i.e. with a viewing window in the front case allowing the wearer to quickly tell the time, with the crown at 3 o’clock. It is fashioned out of the brand’s white and rose 18k gold proprietary alloys; Canopus gold for the case body and Sedna gold for the crown and covers. It is beautifully decorated with red enamel, which was particularly difficult to achieve in the desired red hue to match the good quality fake Omega signature colour.

Opening the front cover of the watch allows you to discover the off-white enamel with petit feu enamel Roman numerals. It features 3 levels to enhance legibility, which requires three separate dial parts seamlessly soldered together. There are also 13-24 hour markings on the bezel, to provide a 24-hour scale. The polished leaf hands are fashioned out of Sedna gold. The rear cover features the God Chronos medallion on the exterior and 125th anniversary logo in red enamel on the interior. The side of the case features an intricate red enamel arabesque decoration.

A limited edition of 19 pieces, the best replica Omega 125th Anniversary Pocket Watch comes in a beautiful wood box and is equipped with a brown braided leather cord. The result of its complex, time-consuming production process is a captivating bridge between past and present, bringing back to life a historically important movement while combining century-old craftsmanship and modern technique.

Review AAA Perfect UK Sale Fake Omega Seamaster Diver 300M 007 Edition

Working closely with the world’s most famous spy in cinematic history, currently portrayed by Daniel Craig, Swiss made fake Omega has created a rather unique best fake Omega Seamaster Diver 300M. The new 007 Edition – which is non-limited by the way – looks and feels completely different from the regular waterproof replica Omega Seamaster Professional series. And that is a good thing because a man of his stature deserves something special right? So without further ado, let us take you through all the details of the best fake Omega Seamaster Diver 300M 007 Edition.

I vividly remember growing up with the James Bond movie franchise. Being a “kid of the eighties” meant that many films came before I was born, and many have come since, but I’ve watched them all several times over. One thing that stands out most to me, besides the obvious taglines, is the gadgets (and the cars of course). In almost every movie, the Q-branch of MI6 plays a major role in James Bond’s missions, supplying him with the necessary state of the art equipment, often disguised as everyday objects. And one of those objects is usually a fake watch, and that’s where we come in.

AAA perfect UK sale replica Omega has had an extensive history with the James Bond franchise, although it is not the only watchmaking company that has been involved. The connection between best fake Omega and the movies started back in 1995, with the introduction of the waterproof fake Omega Seamaster 300M Quartz Professional, strapped to the wrist of then-Bond actor Pierce Brosnan in GoldenEye. The following three movies all featured similar high-quality fake Omega Seamaster 300M models only this time using mechanical movements.

When Daniel Craig took up the humongous task of portraying James Bond, Omega stayed on as a partner to the franchise. In Casino Royale Bond had a Swiss made fake Omega Seamaster Diver 300M Co-Axial and a fake Seamaster Planet Ocean 600M at his disposal. The best replica Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean 600M UK online would stay on for Quantum of Solace, albeit in a smaller size. In Skyfall, the high-quality Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean 600m replica was joined by a best fake Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra 150m. A big change came in 2015 when Omega decided to create a dedicated piece for Mr. Bond to be used in Spectre, the fake Seamaster 300 Master Chronometer Spectre Edition.

The full rundown of the 20 years of partnership between the franchise and fake ega, including the Spectre movie, can be found here. There’s also this retrospective focusing specifically on the UK Swiss made fake Omega Seamaster watches used in James Bond movies. The final movie in the long-lasting saga is No Time To Die, which has been postponed several times due to Covid-19 but is scheduled to premiere in cinemas on the 30th of September.

Now, we’ve featured this particular super clone watch before but since the 25th James Bond movie is close upon release, we thought we’d revisit it again and provide another detailed review. If we take a close look at the UK Swiss movement Omega Seamaster Diver 300M 007 replica Edition, a few things stand out. First off is the choice of materials. Omega has decided to use unpolished, untreated Grade 2 Titanium for a utilitarian, military-type look.

While certainly not the first waterproof fake Omega Seamaster 300M to feature the lightweight, anti-corrosive material, seeing it in its natural state is quite impressive. Of course, being a best fake Seamaster means lyre lugs, a helium escape valve, and a screw-down crown nestled in between crown guards. Compared to other high-quality fake Omega Seamaster Diver 300M models, it is a lot less shiny. And to an extent that also implies for the bezel and dial.

Speaking of which, the dial and bezel feature a deep brown base that almost looks black. Free of the decorative waves engraved on the dial, the 007 Edition replica sticks to its utilitarian theme throughout. The hour markers, as well as the markings on the aluminum bezel insert and the hour hands are done in a “Tropical” style.

This means the typically styled hands are done in a matte finish with crème/beige luminous material. The lume shines in different colors in darker circumstances. This will undoubtedly be quite useful on an actual dive, but given that most of these watches will endure the odd bit of desk-diving only, it feels somewhat messy and unnecessary.

The same “Tropical” style is applied to the graduations on the bezel, and subsequently the hour markers. The sweeping lollipop seconds hand has a red tip, for contrast. A nice touch is that perfect fake Omega kept the dial free of any intrusive 007 brandings, something the waterproof fake Omega Seamaster Diver 300M – The James Bond L.E. Set introduced in 2019 received quite a bit of feedback for. Instead, the famous double-O-seven and Walther PPK logo subtly adorns the closed caseback only.

Mr. Bond himself, or anyone who fancies owning this particular watch, can rely on Swiss made fake Omega’s in-house Calibre 8806 movement. Naturally, this comes with Master Chronometer certifications issued by METAS. Although obscured from view, this automatic movement is finished very nicely, similar to what we find in the recent Black Black edition of the AAA perfect fake Omega Seamaster 300m for instance. The movement is regulated with the co-axial escapement and free-sprung balance wheel with silicon balance spring. It uses a single barrel, capable of storing up to 55 hours of power. The caseback is locked in place with the NAIAD locking system and is finished with a navigational arrow and the reference number.

The best replica Omega Seamaster Diver 300M 007 Edition comes on either a titanium mesh bracelet or a Bond-style NATO strap with titanium hardware. The latter has alternating black, beige and grey stripes. There’s one thing on the bracelet we’d like to address though and that is however tied in it may look, it feels a little bit like an aftermarket alternative. It’s almost like it’s not designed to go with it initially, despite it being very comfortable on the wrist.

Regardless of that little factor, the 007 Edition is a very impressive fake watch. Everything feels very solid and robust, just as we expect from a brand like Omega. It looks rather stealthy and tool-ish, is a more than capable dive watch and for once is not a limited edition likely to be sold out within minutes.
