When it comes to chronograph watches, the AAA Omega Speedmaster Replica is easily one of the most famous. Yet, unbeknownst to some, the Speedmaster is actually a highly varied collection and distinguishing between different Speedy models can sometimes be a little overwhelming.
The Omega Speedmaster ‘57
The Omega Replica UK was the first chronograph to move the tachymeter scale from the dial to the bezel for better legibility. While later models included printed bezel inserts, that very first Speedmaster had an engraved steel bezel, which is now the defining characteristic of modern Speedmaster ’57 watches.
Fake Omega Speedmaster ’57 features larger cases measuring 41.5mm cases and automatic Co-Axial movements. The choice of movement also means a dial redesign to include only two sub-dials at 3 and 9 and a date window at 6 o’clock. Furthermore, though the Speedmaster was originally only offered in stainless steel, Omega makes Speedmaster ’57 models in a range of materials including steel, gold, and two-tone configurations.
Omega Speedmaster Professional Moonwatch
Omega Speedmaster Professional Moonwatch models are stainless steel chronographs with 42mm cases, black tachymeter bezels, black dials, and hand-wound movements. The cases of the Moonwatch professionals are asymmetric, characterized by twisted lugs and crown guards.
Today, Omega Replica offers the choice of Hesalite crystals or modern scratch-resistant sapphire crystal, along with the option of a matching steel bracelet or black leather strap. Moreover, those Moonwatch models with sapphire crystals on the dial-side also have sapphire on the display caseback for a view of the movement inside.
