The all-ceramic Dark Side of Moon, launched five years ago, is one of the most authoritative Omega Speedmasters Replica Watches of this generation. At that time, the idea of a eliminated Speedy seemed to be trying to make the tired main force fashionable. But it’s not just a black-coated lunar watch, but the original DSOTM has a ceramic case, a dial and even a buckle, as well as a top-of-the-line automatic chronograph movement to create an extremely gorgeous watch.
In keeping with the DSOTM series, the Apollo 8 still uses the same 44.25mm zirconia ceramic housing. Although it is much larger than the moon table, the size of the case and the dial are not so obvious because of the darker color. Everything is ceramic, including bezels, crowns, buttons and backs. The Omega Replica ceramics are finished, alternately brushed and mirror polished to give a metal-like precision surface. But this is the end of similarities.
Unlike the early DSOTM Speedmasters, the Apollo 8 Speedmaster Omega Replica Watch is powered by a two-axle, coaxial movement 9300, equipped with an old school and a manual winding machine. In 1861, the same movement was found in the current iteration of the classic lunar form. Although the mechanism remains the same, it has been specially decorated for Apollo 8, and is named cal. 1869.
However, the most notable change is the hollowed out dial, which shows the movement’s black main board – mated with black screws – itself is also open work and decorated by laser ablation to achieve a topologically accurate surface of the moon; basically on the dial A miniature replica of the moon. The embossed Omega and Speedmaster on the dial can also be performed by laser ablation.
The same thing was done for the bridge and the motherboard visible on the back, which duplicated the other side of the moon’s surface. The Swiss Omega Replica Watches crater on the dial is slightly light black, depicting the moon seen from the earth, while the bridge on the back is a darker color that is designed to represent the dark side of the moon.
What’s more, the Apollo 8 Fake Watches eliminates the “cassette” sapphire crystal on its cousin, reducing the overall thickness to just 13.8mm, except that the hand-wound movement is slimmer than the automata in other DSOTM watches. 2.5 mm thinner than other DSOTM watches.
