For now, we will skip the modern collection of Speedmaster watches with the F. Piguet-based 33xx movements, the Speedmaster caliber 9300 (Dark Side of the Moon, etc.), Racing Caliber 9900 High Quality Omega Replica, and so on for this Omega Speedmaster Guide.
The Speedmaster (Professional) Moonwatch
These early models are considered to be the forerunners of the Moonwatch. Their existence is vital to the history that was to come. And, to be frank, they are too beautiful to ignore.
The very first Speedmaster that Omega Clone introduced in 1957 had reference CK2915. Together with the Seamaster 300 (CK2913) and Railmaster (CK2914), this model was part of this professional trio featuring curved lugs, a black dial, and broad arrow hands.The chronograph was also useful for those who needed to time events and tasks outside of sports. The first Speedmaster has a diameter of 38.6mm, a lug spacing of 19mm, and a lug-to-lug length of 48mm. In the first three generations of Speedmasters, the lug spacing and lug-to-lug length do not change.
The CK2915 houses the Omega Replica Watches caliber 321 with a column-wheel chronograph. This Lemania (based on the caliber 2310) movement went out of production in 1968 when Omega introduced the Speedmaster Professional 145.022.
Speedmaster CK2998 and 105.002
This particular reference number already looks a bit like the “Moonwatch” with its black bezel and Alpha hands. Where the first Omega Speedmaster Replica Watches For Sale had a bit of a military look, in my opinion, this watch is a more subtle sports chronograph. The black bezel also changed the diameter of the watch from 38.6mm to 39.7mm. The lug spacing remained 19mm and the lug-to-lug is 48mm.
The first NASA-qualified watch
These watches were in NASA’s possession, as the organization received some for the qualification procedures, and the watches saw action during Apollo missions.
Omega Replica with 80% Discount introduced the Speedmaster 105.003 right after the “transitional” 105.002 in 1964. It was in production until 1969. In some old catalogs, you will find the 105.003 right next to the 105.012/145.012.
Speedmaster Professional 105.012 and 145.012
The latter two also have an asymmetrical case due to the use of crown guards. Omega First Copy Watches added these crown guards after NASA commented on the risk of knocking off the pushers due to rough use. The lyre lugs and crown guards increased the diameter of the new Speedmaster to 42mm. The lug spacing is 20mm, and the lug-to-lug length remained 48mm.
