Best Omega Speedmaster Moonwatch Automatic Master Chronometer Watch Replica
The Best Omega Speedmaster Moonwatch Automatic Master Chronometer Watch Replica has a 44.25mm steel case that Omega says has a thinner profile due to “work done on the sapphire crystal.” Other subtle changes include the slightly enlarged subdials for improved legibility. Some of the old Michael Schumacher Speedmasters come to mind for me, as well as the more recent Speedmaster MKII. It’s a charming touch, for sure, and shows that Omega knows and pays attention to its collectors.
With accents in sporty orange and the distinctive style of minute track associated with popular historical models, its vintage-inspired looks are backed up by a movement with Omega’s latest technology. It’s like a Omega Speedmaster Moonwatch Watch Replica but with an auto racing twist.
We expect good legibility from Omega as well as a good lume experience, and white Super-LumiNova on the hands and the beveled 18K white gold arrowhead indexes should provide that. As a pre-Baselworld 2017 treat, Omega today announces a new flavor of Speedmaster with the Omega Speedmaster Watch Replica that features a “racing dial.”
The alternating pattern of the minute track comes first from a 1968 Omega Watch Replica model and has since featured on many racing-related Speedmasters, but fewer modern ones. The orange accents on the dial extend to the orange wording on the polished ceramic bezel (with brushed “Liquidmetal” tachymeter) and then to the holes in the perforated leather strap that reveal orange rubber underneath. The varnished orange hands, though, are my favorite part.
