Thisspecial replica edition Speedmaster “Moonwatch” uses a 42mm stainless steel case with alternating brushing and polishing. Its lugs are slightly twisted, the pump pusher and crown are close to the case, and it is equipped with a blue ceramic bezel and white enamel tachymeter scale, which matches the blue nylon strap to fix the watch on the wrist.
Under the domed sapphire crystal, the blue and silver dials are actually engraved with silver instead of simple silver. Other interesting details include the three-dimensional convex structure of the dial, which is decorated with a black outer minute ring, blue PVD hour markers, the most famous of which are three blue indented subdials, used to display the second hand, 30 minutes Counter and 12-hour counter.
The second hand chronograph at 9 o’clock has the famous Omega Replica Snoopy astronaut cartoon pattern on it. The award and the original watch are named after this-the engraved image makes all the “Snoopy” sub-series of the Speedmaster series highly valued .
The 50-meter waterproof case is equipped with a manual winding OMEGA coaxial perpetual calendar calibre 3861, which is known for its incredible anti-magnetic properties and timekeeping accuracy. The Omega Replica Watch movement has 26 jewels, a frequency of 21,600 vph, and a power reserve of 50 hours.
Consisting of a sterling silver Snoopy pin – each one actually carried aboard a NASA mission, along with a certificate and letter of appreciation from astronauts, the Omega Replica Watches Silver Snoopy Award is one of the most prized symbols of recognition in the industry.
It was during the complex re-entry procedure that pilot Jack Swiggert’s Omega Speedmaster was called into service, precisely timing the 14-second bursts of the module’s propulsion engines to correct their course and ensure they penetrated the atmosphere at the right angle. It recognition of this feat, NASA awarded Omega Fake Watchesthe Silver Snoopy Award.
The artwork is reproduced on the case back although, interestingly, there is one apparently unintentional difference. On the front, Omega Speedmaster Replica Snoopy’s helmet has four reflection lines, which are missing on the reverse. It is presumed the badges came from different suppliers back in 2003.
Inside, of course, is the manually-wound Lemania-based Caliber 1861, whose predecessor took over from the legendary Omega Speedmaster Snoopy Replica Caliber 321 in 1968. Swapping the former’s column wheel-controlled chronograph for a cam-actuated system decreased costs and lent the movement more resilience – making it ideal for service in an astronauts’ timepiece.
In fact, with the possible exception of the High Quality Omega Replica Watches, the piece brought out in 1995 to honor the 25 years since the near disaster, it is among the most sought after and expensive of the latter-day models on the preowned market.
