A black case is popular. The same is true for our own chronograph. The Omega and Breitling replica test watch to be verified this time is a model that combines both of these popular elements. Omega “Speedmaster Moonwatch” Darkside of the Moon “with a ceramic case and Breitling’s” Chrono Matte GMT Black Steel “are both new works. Two powerful models with two powerful brands confront here. For those fascinated by time and space, and inevitably by everything that stands as a reminiscence of the lunar mysteries, Omega has released this year at Baselworld 2013 a cutting-edge design with a bold name: Omega Speedmaster Dark Side of the Moon. This avant-garde replica watch represents a snazzy new addition to the famous Speedmaster collection, and an adventurous innovation anticipated by countless watch enthusiasts around the globe.
Internal movement, well designed
The core of the well-known Speedmaster Professional remains the same in all its mechanical movement, NASA-certified greatness. Only the outside was redesigned. It is as contemporary as it gets. Its fearless spirit is all about sleek lines and sporty functionality. Many watch experts have concluded that it is by far the best new watch of BaselWorld 2013 show.
What strikes you from the start is its all black 44 mm case. The case, dial and bezel are made of a black zirconium oxide ceramic, brushed and polished. All indexes are actually 18k white applied gold. The contrast is remarkable. At 6 o’clock there is an elegant date window while at 3 and 9 o’clock there are two small blackened dials. For those with a great attention to functional details, please note that these two counters are possible only due to the resourceful placement of the 12-hour and 60-minute sub-dials on the same counter at the 3 o’clock position, providing a better chronograph reading.
The hour, the minute hands and the hands found on both sub-dials are inspired by its predecessor, the Moonwatch, and are made from 18K white gold. The central chronograph hand is rhodium plated and has a red tip for enhanced visibility. The two dots at 12 and the hour, minute and chronograph hands are coated with Super-LumiNova to ensure readability even in the dark. Furthermore, this exclusive replica watch is available with a highly durable black Cordura® fabric strap defined by a black ceramic buckle.
The most beautiful detail of the replica watch can be found on its darker side. Above the tilted scratch-resistant sapphire crystal, on the ceramic back of the case, there is the engraved words “DARK SIDE OF THE MOON”, a reminder that this watch represents a tribute to the Speedmaster’s heritage.
