Replica Omega unveiled the latest updates to its ever-popular Speedmaster line, with four new references being added to the women-focused Speedmaster 38mm collection.
The Luxury Omega Replicayellow-gold options use a silver dial with green accents and are strapped on a green crocodile strap, while the Sedna gold models uses a cappuccino-colored dial with brown accents and are strapped on a taupe strap.
Each of the 38-mm cases are produced in the iconic, twisted-lug Omega Speedmaster Replica style, alongside large pump pushers and a signed crown on their right side. The dial is surrounded by a fixed tachymeter bezel in each watch’s accent color; the diamond versions feature a two-layer look with the tachymeter on the inside and the diamonds outlining it.
Inside the new models is the Omega Replica UK, an automatic movement boasting a 52-hour power reserve that features, like nearly all modern Omega movements, a co-axial escapement, a free sprung-balance, and a silicon balance spring. The movement is protected via a solid caseback with an engraved seahorse design.
The Omega Speedmaster Replica was merely a highly capable chronograph intended, as its name suggested, for timing motorsport laps. And in the world of motorsport, few names are as highly revered as Michael Schumacher.
The white ‘Panda’ dial was clearly the most sought after, and one look will tell you why. With its black sub-dials over the cream-colored face, and a red encircling minute track, it could easily be mistaken for that mythical beast, the Paul Newman Daytona.
The steel asymmetrical case stays at 42mm Luxury Omega Replica, with the familiar mix of brushed and polished surfaces. Turn it over and you will find the brand’s Hippocampus logo engraved in the middle, with ‘Michael Schumacher The Legend’ in red around the outside.
Omega Speedmaster Speedy Tuesday ‘Ultraman’ 2
This new Grade One Replica watch was packed with orange accenting – on the ‘Speedmaster’ signature, above each hour marker, on the ‘TACHYMETRE’ script along the bezel as well as the first three minutes of the right hand sub dial, on both the NATO and leather strap with which it was supplied, and on the chronograph seconds hand.
Shine the light on the watch and you unveil the silhouette of his mask, in orange of course. Coupled with all that were a host of nostalgic design touches, such as the step dial, the retro Omega Replica logo and the DON bezel.
Inside, the manually-wound Caliber 1861 provides the power, itself the modern, cam-controlled version of the Caliber 321 from the original Ultraman models.
When it comes to chronograph replica watches, the Omega Speedmaster is easily one of the most famous.
The Omega Speedmaster ‘57
Omega first introduced the Speedmaster chronograph specifically for motorsports in 1957 as part of a trilogy of professional watches – the other two were the Seamaster 300 dive watch and the Railmaster antimagnetic watch.
Another common design trait across all Speedmaster ’57 watches are round symmetrical cases with straight lugs and no crown guards. Other nods to the first Speedy found across some Speedmaster ’57 models include the Broad Arrow hands, the three-link steel bracelet, and beige-colored lume to mimic the patina that develops with age.
Today, Omega Replica offers the choice of Hesalite crystals (like the vintage versions) or modern scratch-resistant sapphire crystal, along with the option of a matching steel bracelet or black leather strap. Moreover, those Moonwatch models with sapphire crystals on the dial-side also have sapphire on the display caseback for a view of the movement inside.
