Historical Replica Omega Speedmaster Apollo & Alaska Special Mission Watches 

ReplicaAmong the most storied fake watches, the replica Omega Speedmaster holds an important position as the watch that’s been to the Moon and back – and a bunch of other places, as we shall know soon. While there is a large number of printed and online literature available to study for those who want to know all about the “Moonwatch,” it is extremely rare to be given a chance to go hands-on with some of the actual watches that have been through the historical events which have helped to develop the remarkable popularity the Speedmaster enjoys today.
Not a long time ago, celebrating the notable 60th anniversary of the Speedmaster at Omega’s London event, we went hands-on with not one or two, but six incredible Omega Speedmaster watches that have truly been “out there.” Here’s every one of them telling their story.
It all started rather inconspicuously in 1957, the year replica Omega introduced its “Professional” line of fake watches that included the first Speedmaster, the Seamaster 300, and the Railmaster. To see the trio together, check out our hands-on with the Omega 60th anniversary series here.
Omega says that they originally had not conceived the Speedmaster for extra-terrestrial use, and that’s really make impressive sense. Although it was in the very same year that the Russians successfully launched the first-ever satellite into space on October 4, 1957, it was not until much later that the first spacewalk happened in the year of 1965 – once again, achieved by the Russians, as Alexei Leonov spent 12 minutes and 9 seconds in the big vast unknown nothingness.
In the meantime, the Speedmaster had been set on its own course, as Omega heavily marketed it to car enthusiasts, motorists, and racing drivers. How? Well, did you know that the Omega Speedmaster unique replica cheap watch, the first Speedmaster of them all was the first-ever watch to place its tachymeter bezel outside the dial and crystal? An almost laughably negligible “achievement” compared to what the Speedmaster would soon have to gloat about.
Still, the significance of the unique replica cheap watch is undeniable, as it was a strong enough beginning – owing to its almost uncannily well-balanced, sporty, yet graceful appearance and a heavy-duty 321 hand-wound chronograph caliber – to merit future updates to it.omega
Today, the replica cheap watch is one of the most collectible Speedmasters out there. Produced between 1959 and 1962, there aren’t many original ones around today in collectible condition with original parts, which sends resale value north of the mark. The next development within the Speedmaster family, in Omega’s words, “was a decisive one.”
These watches, as well as models from other competing brands were evaluated almost to destruction in a series of tests that can justly be described as the toughest trials a watch had ever endured.
While Omega had no knowledge of what was going on over in Houston since NASA’s selection process was carried out without involving the respective companies’ headquarters, Omega was nevertheless evolving the Speedmaster. In order to offer additional protection to the chronograph’s pushers and its crown, the Speedmaster case was slightly modified: its right side was slightly enlarged, thus offering more protection and, as an unavoidable side-effect, a newfound, asymmetrical look.
