Why I Purchased an Omega Speedmaster Professional Replica Watches

I am sometimes asked why I purchased an Omega Speedmaster Professional Replica Watches, a hand-wound and rather plain chronograph wristwatch.I therefore do not tell them about the horological aspects of the Speedmaster since I know their eyes will glaze over and I will lose their attention if not their patience; rather I focus my explanation on the one thing with which they can likely identify, particularly if they are of the baby-boomer age, and say to them that there are many reasons to purchase a Speedmaster if one is looking for a fine watch; but, the one thing that can be said about the Swiss Made Omega Speedmaster Replica Watches that can’t be said about any other watch is that it has played a significant role in one of the greatest adventures of the twentieth century, if not the entire history of man: “landing a man on the moon and returning him safely to the earth.”

Since then the Speedmaster has been used on every manned mission starting with Gemini III and including all the Apollo missions, Skylab, Apollo-Soyuz, Mir, the ISS, and, of course, the Space Shuttle. It was on the wrist of Ed White when he took the historic first space-walk, it was there when Apollo 8 astronauts Alders, Lovell and Borman orbited the moon for the first time and they read from the book of Genesis on Christmas day while looking back to an earth-rise over the lunar surface, it was on the wrist of Buzz Aldrin as they took man’s first steps on the lunar surface..In this case we are discussing the hand-wound version and not the later variations with more modern automatic co-axial escapement movements. It is the hand-wound Luxury Omega Replica Watches that are one of those iconic watches without which no collection can be considered complete.

Its 60 year history of continuous production alone puts it among a handful of wristwatches which can claim the same and are still in production. Nearly unchanged in its basic form and design, a new Speedmaster Professional is readily recognizable as descended from the original 1957 model and is at first glance nearly indistinguishable from the Copy Omega Speedmaster Professional watches worn on the moon. There have been changes to Speedmaster Professionals both inside and out for sure as improvements were made; but, most were minor and barely noticeable externally.

As changes were made during production, no matter how small, new reference numbers or sub-reference numbers were often assigned. Additionally, a variety of limited editions have been produced over the years commemorating various space missions and milestones. This makes collecting Omega Replica Watches UK Speedmasters an interesting and even daunting task. The fact that there is an entire coffee-table sized book, almost two inches thick, dedicated only to the hand-wound Speedmasters attests to the variety of references that have been produced, most looking outwardly alike.
