Today, the Speedmaster First replica OMEGA in Space reprises the classic look inspired by Schirra’s pioneering moment. Astronaut Walter Wally Schirra made history for OMEGA in 1962, during the Sigma 7 mission of the Mercury program, since he wore his own personal Speedmaster Reference 2998. After blasting into a clear blue sky on October 3rd, a long history of space exploration for OMEGA’s now-iconic Speedmaster Chronograph was started. As a matter of fact, after nearly two and half years, the best replica watches will officially become certified for all manned missions.
The newest 18K Sedna gold case is on the basis of the initial pre-professional Speedmaster, with symmetric lugs and a 1962 Seahorse medallion on the case back.
On the watches replica face, the watch features a special brown polished ceramic bezel ring and a matt chromium nitride tachymeter scale. This rich brown color is included on the PVD sub dials and minutes track as well, which encircles a central opaline silvery dial. The hands are all made of 18K Sedna gold and contain a mix of Alpha and Baton designs along with the applied indexes.
With intention to create a unique touch, the case back features unique engravings which include THE FIRST replica OMEGA IN SPACE, OCTOBER 3, 1962 and NUMBERED EDITION No. It is powered by the hand-wound Calibre 1861, a more contemporary Rhodium-plated type of the initial Calibre 321 which was beating on Wally Schirra’s wrist.
The Moonwatch First OMEGA in Space Numbered Edition will be accessible at the OMEGA Boutique in Vancouver and choose OMEGA retailers across Canada for $19,200. Brown ceramic and Sedna gold, requires a brown leather strap that replica Omega watches delivers with beige stitching. In an uncharacteristically playful move from the Swiss giant, these are a breath of fresh, colorfully contrasting air.
