The replica Omega Speedmaster Dark Side of the Moon Apollo 8 watch adopts a 44.25 mm black zirconia ceramic case with a black leather strap. The bright yellow color embellishment also adds a sporting vigor to this watch. The main strap design in black and yellow colors, the black leather strap is ingeniously filled with yellow rubber material. Omega also uses a milling tool to make the strap show neatly equidistant micro holes, during which the yellow is looming and unique.
The chronograph hands are covered with yellow lacquer, and the speed scale and crown are covered with Super-LumiNova. The exquisite skeleton dial, the color of the movement splint becomes dark black after special treatment, and the movement splint is accurately modified by laser ablation to show the feeling of the moon surface. Omega uniquely presents the two distinct sides of the moon in the timepiece. The light-colored dial is like the moon that people observe from the earth, and the back of the watch shows the “dark side of the moon” that only astronauts can observe.
The dark side of replica Omega Speedmaster Dark Side of the Moon Apollo 8 also uses all black ceramics, the entire watch is ceramic, including the case, bezel, crown, chronograph button, buckle, without exception. We can see that the “Apollo 8” is based on the 1861 manual moon speedmaster, but the size of the “Apollo 8” is larger than the conventional steel shell 1861 (conventional steel shell 1861 super 42 mm). Including “Apollo 8”, the watches in the dark side series of Omega Speedmaster Moon are all 44.25 mm. Although the size has increased a bit, but because it is a ceramic case, the weight of the watch is relatively light. The whole table is made of black ceramic, one is cooler, and the other is more scratch-resistant. The watch can be used as new all year round without any trace of use. But the ceramic watch should pay attention to bump, don’t fall, so as not to cause irreparable loss.
One of the highlights of replica Omega Speedmaster Dark Side of the Moon Apollo 8 is Omega’s handling of the watch’s front dial and back movement splint. This watch is engraved on the front and back of the watch to imitate the surface of the moon (laser engraving). Craters and craters are carved on the hollow disc surface and the movement plywood. At the same time, the front face of the watch is hollowed out, symbolizing the front of the moon (the side facing the earth), and the movement on the back of the watch, symbolizing the back of the moon (the side of the moon not visible from the earth). I also saw information from abroad that Omega engraved the disk of “Apollo 8” brighter in order to embody the lunar front and back better, while the back of the movement was darker. On the watch face, Omega also deliberately hollowed out and exposed some metal parts, making this watch very cool.
