In 1968, the astronauts of Apollo 8 reached the moon, becoming the first men who saw the moon. 50 years later, Omega launched the Speedmaster to pay a tribute to the great achievement. They are well-designed copy Omega Speedmaster Moonwatch “Dark Side Of The Moon” Apollo 8, which are displayed at Baselworld 2018, the most important watch fair in the world.
The 44.25 mm replica Omega watches are made up from black ceramic cases and bezels and black leather straps. There are white tachymetre scales on the bezels and you can see the yellow rubber straps from the points of the black leather straps, which can guarantee water resistance to 167 feet.
The most attractive virtues of the fantastic fake watches are that they have skeleton black dials. The front dials are full of meteorite crater patterns, which look like the front face of the moon. And on the dials, there are white luminant hour marks, clear white scales, luminant hands with yellow second hands and three chronography sub-dials for 30-minute, 12-hour and 60-minute at 3, 6 and 9 o’clock.
While from the transparent backs of the exquisite copy watches, you can see the “dark side of the moon”, which is only seen by the astronauts. 50 years ago, astronaut Jim Lovell said that “WE’LL SEE YOU ON THE OTHER SIDE” and this sentence was covered on the outer sides of the backs.
In my eyes, the yellow elements add charm and beauty to the black watches, which look like the moonshine from the black moon.
Well, that’s all about the high-level watches, you can see them at Baselworld 2018 and you can buy them in August.
