Replica Omega Speedmaster Dark Side of the Moon Apollo 8 uses yellow accents. The chronograph hands of the watch, Speedmaster, the hour punctuation on the edge of the dial, the speed measurement on the bezel, and the stitching of the watch strap are all yellow. Yellow is also the color of the moon we usually see. I think it is very appropriate to use yellow embellishment. In addition to luminous hands and luminous hour markers, the speed ring numbers on the watch bezel are also luminous.
Replica Omega Speedmaster Dark Side of the Moon Apollo 8 also uses all black ceramics. The watches are all ceramic, including the case, bezel, crown, chronograph button, and clasp, without exception. We can see that “Apollo 8” is based on the 1861 manual Moon Landing Supermaster, but the size of the “Apollo 8” is larger than the conventional steel shell 1861 manual Supermaster (conventional steel shell 1861 Supermaster). 42 mm). Including “Apollo 8”, the watches in the Omega Speedmaster Dark Side of the Moon series are all 44.25 mm. Although the size has increased a bit, the weight of the watch is relatively light because it is a ceramic case. Black ceramics, one is more cool, and the other is more scratch-resistant.
One of the highlights of replica Omega Speedmaster Dark Side of the Moon Apollo 8 is Omega’s handling of the watch front panel and back movement plywood. This watch is engraved (laser engraving) imitating the surface of the moon on the front and back of the watch. Craters and craters are carved on the hollow disk surface and the movement splint. At the same time, the front of the watch is hollowed out, which symbolizes the front of the moon (the side facing the earth), and the movement on the back of the watch symbolizes the back of the moon (the side of the moon that is not observable from the earth). I have also seen information from abroad that, in order to better reflect the front and back of the moon, Omega has carved the disk of “Apollo 8” brighter, while the back of the movement is carved darker. On the dial of the watch, Omega also deliberately hollowed out and exposed some metal parts, making this watch very cool.
Omega Speedmaster Dark Side of the Moon is a branch of the Speedmaster series. The origin of the dark side of the moon is that the Apollo 8 spacecraft flew to the back of the moon for the first time in 1968 (the dark side of the moon). When we see the bright moon in the sky, it is the bright side of the moon reflecting the sun and the side facing the earth. The back of the moon is the dark side. Therefore, Omega launched the Speedmaster Dark Side of the Moon series (launched in 2013). The biggest feature of this series is that it is made of all black ceramic, which symbolizes the dark side of the moon. More replica Omega Speedmaster Dark Side of the Moon watches.
