This year, the iconic Omega Speedmaster limited edition replica watches celebrates its 60th anniversary after originally launching in 1957. It was not until over a decade later that it started to be known as the “moonwatch.” All timepiece enthusiasts know (after the fact has been endlessly drilled into their clearly eager minds) that the Speedmaster by Swiss Omega was chosen by American NASA to be the official timepiece worn by Apollo mission astronauts and eventually to the moon – a few times. 2019 will be the 50th anniversary of Apollo 11, and I am sure hoping that Omega has something interesting brewing for that. But I’m getting ahead of myself, because right now I am about to share my review of the 2016-debuted Omega Speedmaster Moonwatch Co-Axial Master Chronometer Moonphase Chronograph.

Since the moon missions, the once racing- and pilot-themed Speedmaster became the timepiece synonymous with the moon and all things related to astronauts. It is a persona that continues to endure today, even if Omega waterproof replica watches UK have yet to decide how it will truly be a part of contemporary spaceflight activities in order to secure future relevance in this theme. What has really helped the Speedmaster endure, though, isn’t just a connection to the historic moon missions or NASA, but rather its winning design. Moreover, the Speedmaster has been rendered in so many ways with so many variants that even highly trained specialists have trouble keeping track of all the models.
Speedmaster product naming conventions don’t help much, as they are often confusing and similar to one another, or abstract and difficult to remember. For example, the official name of this watch according to the Omega website is the “Omega Speedmaster Moonwatch Omega Co-Axial Master Chronometer Moonphase Chronograph 44.25 MM,” and that doesn’t even include the reference number. The name actually includes “Omega” in it twice. The only reason for this is that Omega has so many similarly themed watches (even though the timepieces themselves may be quite different) that it becomes very challenging to describe them. There have been other Omega Speedmaster models with moonphase indicators and chronographs in the past. In fact, one of them is still available for sale, with an almost identical case, but a different dial layout and movement.

Even when we wrote about the Omega Speedmaster Master Chronometer Moonphase fake watches UK after seeing it hands-on after Baselworld 2016, we weren’t quite sure what to call it. With a ten-word name and a complicated assortment of special features, this otherwise very lovely Omega watch is going to need a lot of special attention to stand out from the crowd. My overall take on the Omega Speedmaster Moonwatch Co-Axial Master Chronometer Moonphase Chronograph is that it is beautiful, distinctive in its own right, and comfortable. At the same time, you need to be a veritable Omegatologist to understand the depth of its technical appeal, as well as how it fits into the larger collection. Omega is a strong brand because it has a lot of good watches. Alternatively, you could see it as Omega’s weakness as a brand that it offers too many watches to allow relatively casual timepiece lovers an opportunity to choose easily.
Known as the dressier alternative to the professional dive watches in the Omega Seamaster replica watches UK line, the Aqua Terra collection has long served largely as Omega’s straightforward, time-only option with aquatic capability. New for Baselworld 2017, the Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra Master Chronometer collection introduces three new pieces that feature subtle changes in aesthetics as well as minor tweaks to the overall design.

Certain updates are common to all three of the new Omega Aqua Terra replica watches models. First, the teak dial concept, which Omega states is intended to allude to the teak decking on luxury yachts, is now oriented horizontally as opposed to vertically. Also, the date window has been moved from three o’clock to six o’clock, as an homage to the original Seamaster Automatic Calendar from 1952. The new dials also feature less text leading to a cleaner appearance. In addition to these dial layout changes, the case itself has been reshaped and the crown is now a slightly conical shape inspired by the wave edge design found around the exhibition sapphire crystal on the updated caseback (that we, unfortunately, don’t have images of yet).
The first of the new men’s Aqua Terra series has a 41mm stainless steel and 18k Sedna gold case with a silver-toned dial and black outlined luminous hands and indices. This model also sports a brand new fitted strap with a Sedna gold center link. The second new Aqua Terra is a 41mm stainless steel model with a silver-toned dial with black outlined luminous hands and indices as well as orange highlights throughout. This model will come on a brown leather strap with a deployant clasp. The last of the new Aqua Terra series is a 38mm blue-dialed stainless steel model with rhodium plated luminous hands and indices. This model features a newly redesigned, fitted bracelet intended to better suit wearers with smaller wrists.

The new models are now powered by either the Omega Master Chronometer Caliber 8800 cheap fake watches or 8900 which are both coaxial escapement, silicon balance spring-equipped, Swiss Federal Institute of Metrology (METAS)-certified movements with 55 and 60 hours of power reserve, respectively.
The Omega Constellation has never been one of the main Omega leather strap fake watches on my radar. This fact is interesting to me since I am a big fan of Omega watches overall. If you speak to Omega you learn something interesting that makes sense if you think about it. The world is split up into two major types of Omega markets. Those are Omega Speedmaster and Seamaster markets, as well as Omega Constellation and De Ville markets.
The United States is for the most part an Omega Speedmaster and Seamaster market. Having said that, if what Omega says is true, they sell far more De Ville and Constellation models in the East. Thus, while these dressier models aren’t a major part of the Omega image to the West, it is dress-style watches and not sport watches that make up the majority of Omega watch sales overall. With that in mind, I went on to review two different Omega Constellation men’s watches.

To a degree, this watch review comes at the brink of when Omega has promised to release a re-designed Constellation watch collection next year, in 2015. That said, the current Constellation collection is from more or less 2007, and like the De Ville helped launch Omega’s new in-house made movements. As such, these two models each contain 8500/8600 series in-house made automatic movements.
Right now, the largest size available for a men’s Constellation watch is 38mm wide. I have a feeling that will change next year as the sizes get larger for the Western market. Personally I think the Omega Constellation rose gold dial replica watches UK need to be at least 40mm wide (up to maybe 42mm wide) for the US market. What I have for review is the steel Omega Constellation Co-Axial Day-Date 38mm watch ref. 188.8.131.52.01.001 and the 18k Sedna gold Omega Constellation Co-Axial 38mm ref. 184.108.40.206.02.001.
The steel model is perhaps more classically a “Constellation,” at least in the modern sense. While the Constellation name has been part of the Omega family since the 1950s, it was in 1982 that the Constellation took its modern form with the Constellation Manhattan. The famed watch designer Gerald Genta designed a few earlier 1960s era Omega constellation watches, but not the Constellation Manhattan – even though it was clearly partially inspired by some of Genta’s popular designs from the 1970s.

The Omega Constellation Manhattan series replica watches introduced the iconic “case claws” and single piece tapering bracelet that remains part of the design today. Of course another major part of the distinct Manhattan aesthetic is the ring of Roman numeral hour markers on the bezel. While the steel Omega Constellation Co-Axial Day-Date has the look of modern Constellation watches, the 18k Sedna gold model has a dial inspired by an earlier, pre-Manhattan era Omega Constellation model.
