Top Quality of the replica Omega Speedmaster Moonphase Chronograph 

If you’d have told me my best favorite Omega in the year of 2017 would be a two-tone Speedmaster with a green bezel, I’d have enjoyed a good laugh at your expense. I like a Speedy as much as the next guy, but I like them in the straight-up classical format. For me, the real lesson here is to never truly judge a watch until it’s on your wrist.replica omega
The crush I had on this watch was instant, and real. Earlier this year, I’d seen blue and black versions of the model that were the Baselworld centrepieces, and I loved them. But this was quite different. There was an instant, almost visceral reaction as I strapped it to my wrist.
The grey sunburst dial, emerald green bezel insert, and yellow gold crown, pushers and bezel all work perfectly well together, adding up to a hefty dose of flash on the wrist, without being as hardcore as the fully gold versions. It’s also a look that speaks to the model’s heritage, the light dial reminiscent of the so-called ‘Italian-dialled’ Speedmasters of the ’80s, which were available in full steel or two-tone versions, made for Italian and German Markets.
But there’s more to the appeal of this watch than just the color scheme. There’s the case, which clocks in at a substantial 44.25mm, the smooth grey alligator strap, the Master Chronometer grade Calibre movement. And then there’s that face-like dial (which appears, in these pictures, to be frowning), with stacked totalisers – 60-minute and 12-hour counters at three, date and small seconds at nine – and of course the show-stealing moon-phase.omega replica
Not only does the starry sky and moon look like something you might have seen transmitted to earth on July 16, 1969, there’s also the boot print near the edge of the Sea of Tranquillity, right where Apollo XI landed. It’s a cute element that’s done in a meaningful way, rather than coming off as gimmicky. It’s absolutely less polarising than the cartoon dog on the dial of the Silver Snoopy Award Speedy.
For me, the real lesson here is to never truly judge a watch until it’s on your wrist. If I were just looking at photography, I’d have quickly moved on, and missed out on wearing a great new take on an old classic.
