One of those is,a new variant of the venerable Omega Speedmaster Replica Watches. This is the first time in a long while that we see them come with a semi-skeletonized dial – some might remember a few pieces from the ’90s and early ‘2000s. On one hand, I’m sad to see any portion of that moon-crater dial surface disappear, but they have done it for a really cool reason. Here’s the Omega Speedmaster Dark Side of the Moon Apollo 8.
Model: Speedmaster Dark Side of the Moon Apollo 8
Lug Width: 21mm
Case Material: Black zirconium oxide ceramic
Movement: Calibre 1869; a blackened and decorated version of the 1861
Power Reserve: 48 hours
Strap/Bracelet: Black leather with a yellow rubber core
To commemorate the “dark side of the moon” traversal that Apollo 8 did, they’ve actually put two different finishes on to the movement. On the top side it’s a light color, representing the light side of the moon. Flip the Cheap Luxury Replica Watches over, and you have a much darker finish on the manually-wound movement, representing the dark side. Not only is this two-tone cool, it keeps the theme. Not many folks have seen the dark side of the moon – and not many will see the dark side of the movement unless the watch is taken off-wrist.
While not perhaps thematically appropriate, I do like the use of yellow on the Omega Speedmaster Dark Side of the Moon Apollo 8. Cheap Replica Watches does say that they first used yellow on a 1968 Speedmaster, so it ties into the watch’s lineage, I suppose. I just think it pops rather nicely against an otherwise dark watch.
Some folks may get riled up about a new Speedmaster, and for those, sure, the Omega Speedmaster Dark Side of the Moon Apollo 8 AAA Replica Watches probably isn’t going to do much for them. For me, I tend to lean towards non-chronographs, or the broad-arrow interpretations of the Speedmaster.
