Omega Speedmaster Apollo 11 50th Anniversary Limited Edition Watch In Stainless Steel

This is it – the replica Omega Speedmaster watches Apollo 11 50th Anniversary watch we’ve all been waiting for since Baselworld 2018 and before, knowing full well that the 50th anniversary of the most important moon mission in human history was coming in July of 2019. Well, despite plenty of dealers seeing it just a few short days before Baselworld, whispering hints like “two-tone bezel” and “laser-engraved footprint” in hushed tones around the show, the whole design has impressively been otherwise kept under wraps until Omega lifted the lid this week, in Switzerland replica omega watches .

Omega Speedmaster Apollo 11 50th Anniversary Limited Edition Watch In Stainless Steel

Featuring a solid flat-link stainless steel bracelet and 42mm case with few flourishes of Omega’s new Moonshine gold that debuted on the solid gold variant earlier this year, the new steel variant is limited to 6,969 pieces, carrying a number of design cues inspired by the historic Apollo 11 moon mission, including a 9 o’clock subdial exhibiting Buzz Aldrin climbing down the lunar module’s ladder, while the Naiad-locked caseback features a deep laser-engraved relief of an astronaut’s footprint juxtaposed with Neil Armstrong’s famous “one small step” quote. Back on the dial, you’ll also notice the applied “11” Arabic hour numeral replacing the baton marker at that spot. Unlike the solid gold anniversary edition, which had a red ceramic bezel ring, the stainless variant gets it in polished black ceramic with a Ceragold tachymeter scale.

Also like the solid gold variant, the new 50th Anniversary Steel version is fitted with Omega’s newest manually wound movement, caliber 3861, which gets gets the Master Chronometer certification – a first for this movement in a stainless steel-cased watch and another sign that the standard Speedmaster Professionals are likely next in line to get these upgraded movements.

Omega Seamaster Olympic Games gold collection hands-on

replica Omega watches has been the official timekeeper of the Olympic Games 27 times since 1932 and is expected to last at least 2032, marking the partnership’s 100-year history. In those 27 times, there are some very colorful designs, from the stopwatch of the official timekeeper of the hippocampus Olympics, to the sidewalk of the hippocampus diver 300M Rio 2016 at Copacabana Beach, to the hippocampus planet Pyeongchang 2018 this year, Some colorful designs. South Korea flag colors. Needless to say, bold and colorful models dominate the many limited editions released by Omega during the Olympics. It wears better than the subtle Olympic watches we have seen recently. The Omega Seamaster Olympic gold watch has gold, Omega Sedna (pink) gold and the new “Canopus” (more on that later) white gold. Gold, silver and bronze medals for winning Olympic athletes on the podium.

Omega Seamaster Olympic Games Gold Collection Hands-On Hands-On Seamaster

The streamlined retro minimalist enamel dial shows Omega’s wise restraint, and Omega clearly has confidence in the META-replica watches uk certified movement inside. While cleverly celebrating the brand’s association with the Olympics, successfully reviewing the design of time? check. Is it a movement that is several years ahead of similar brands? check. Please make one from steel?


The pared-down, vintage-minimalist enamel dial shows wise restraint from Omega, who are clearly confident about the in-house METAS-certified movement within. 

These watches are 39.5 mm in diameter (the same as Olympic watches), so their dimensions are conservative. The slightly domed eggshell enamel dial with a simple gold index can well guide the hippocampus series of the 1950s and 1960s. Omega did a great job of bringing a lot of modern life into many old-fashioned models (“Trilogy” in 1957?). Although these hippocampus watches did not directly mention specific models, the Olympics The gold watch series looks like they have come out of James Dean’s movie.


These watches measure in at 39.5mm (same as the Olympic Games watches) making them conservatively sized dress watches .

Even smaller, the only thing I have to do is to record the enamel minutes on the hint inside the index. I think it destroys the dial and loses the overall continuity and simplicity of the watch. I think their aesthetic effect will be better around the dial, so they won’t break the beautiful leaf-type handset-although I know where to say it will disappear from the dome-shaped dial. That being said, look at some of the old-fashioned Omega Seamaster Olympics ads (inserted above and throughout the article), and it’s clear that this minute of tracking is firmly rooted in the brand-specificity of the watch and event In history.

Cell phones are ideal for the overall readability of dials and watches. The hour hand reaches the end of the index almost microscopically, and the overlap of the minute hand with them is just enough to form a tiny gap between the tip and edge of the dial, which I think will benefit from the minute track rather than the blank. The second hand is a few millimeters longer than the minute hand, about the edge of the dial. Although it sounds ridiculous, this is one of the factors that can make or break a simple three-watch for many potential buyers, including myself. In this market segment, it is easy to succumb to a phone that is too long or too short (as I have seen on many Aqua Terra models), and I am always impressed by the sophisticated, well-designed formal watch phone.

The dial is highlighted and painted with enamel, the red Omega logo, and it is only used on Olympic watches such as pocket watches. I like that subtle and clear nod is the only thing on the dial that conveys the true DNA of the watch. As mentioned earlier, the case will be made of three gold alloys: Omega’s Sedna (pink) gold, and the new Canopus gold. The case itself is polished, and the small onion crown is perfect for this collection. Omega’s Canopus Gold Medal is one of the coolest features (unfortunately, we didn’t see it). Omega was named after the brightest star in the Carina constellation (I assume) (you’re right, I didn’t get much), the alloy claims that the alloy is proprietary to the brand, brighter, and hardly Will change color as fast as traditional platinum. Here we see the same claims and chemical wizardry of Omega’s Senda Gold. I don’t know yet what substances to add to support these claims, but I think it will be released in the near future.

Turn the watch over and you can see what makes it a typical Olympic watch, but also a modern Omega timepiece. An 18k gold ring is mounted on the periphery of the exhibition caseback, which has all the known Olympic host cities since 1932, until Los Angeles in 2028-maybe a little jump in the gun.

buy replica Rolex Cellini 4233

This particular reference 50709RBR version is near the top of the Rolex Cellini Time watch pyramid, being one of two models with a diamond-set bezel. Of course, the collection begins with the standard Rolex Cellini Time in 18k white or Everose gold that does not contain diamonds, and builds up to two diamond-set models.
Then again, add Rolex-standard diamonds to the bezel of this particular 50709 Rolex Cellini, and you increase the “noise” volume a bit more, allowing more people to notice your watch.ase more niche models such as the Rolex Cellini. One such model has a reduced fluted bezel which is flanked by a thin ring of diamonds around the bezel and additional diamonds on the dial as hour markers; while the current top version of the Cellini Time is the pictured model that entirely does away with the fluted bezel in favor for a larger row of round-cut diamonds decorating the bezel. It is actually a very logical way of positioning a Rolex dress watch, if you think about it.

It isn’t huge, but at 39mm wide, the Rolex Cellini is unapologetically modern in its stature. The 39mm in width is probably the new default size for men’s formal wear timepieces meant to work with Swiss Replica Watches UK Online sleeves and seamlessly integrate with any black-tie affair. This, of course, is best suited to the white gold versions of the Rolex Cellini while the 18k Everose takes on the role of something slightly louder given the color of the gold metal which is vastly more conspicuous that the more sober tone of white gold.

Diamonds on a watch are exclusively about attention. There is no other purpose for diamonds on a timepiece, and in many ways, there doesn’t need to be. Watches have comfortably been indicators of status and prestige since their invention hundreds of year ago. The best watches had decoration to prove as such, and today, that legacy continues with diamond-embellished dress watches like this. The row of stones around the bezel doesn’t add or subtract from the functionality, and all that you sacrifice here is the “mini” version of Rolex’s famed fluted bezel which has been made famous by the Datejust and Day Date collections and shows up in reduced form on the current generation of Rolex Cellini watches. Again, there is a version of the Rolex Cellini Time with both a row of smaller diamonds and an even more minimalized fluted bezel known as the Rolex Cellini 50609RBR (in 18k white gold with black dial), which in its own way attempts to offer the best of both worlds.

best replica Omega Constellation 1212.30.00

The vintage Omega Constellation is the watch that basically started it all for me. The passion for watches that is. A number of relatives of mine had (and have) an Omega Constellation and it were these timepieces that got me interested in watches in the first place. I inherited a nice vintage Omega Constellation from 1968 which I truly cherish as it has been on the wrist of my grandfather for over 40 years (on a daily basis). I also bought some Constellation watches myself as well through the years.

So, it is about time I give the vintage Omega Constellation a bit Swiss Replica Watches UK Online of well-deserved attention here on Fratello Watches. A few months ago, we (Bert Buijsrogge and I) visited a collector of rare and vintage Omega Constellation and Longines Conquest watches and decided to do a photo shoot on both collections.


The Omega Constellation watch was once the flagship in the Omega collection. This particular family within their collection dates back to 1952 and according to Omega’s Journey Through Time publication (2007) it was because their limited produced Centenary collection was so high in demand by customers. This 1948 Omega Centenary commemorated the 100th birthday of the Omega company and was their first automatic chronometer watch. It wasn’t made in series production but the demand for them was so high, that Omega decided to create a new family of automatic chronometer watches in 1952: The Constellation.

The first Omega Constellation models had best replica Omega Constellation 1212.30.00 bumper movements and distinctive diamond shaped hour markers. The watches in the photo above also feature the diamond shaped hour markers on their pie-pan shaped dials. The Dauphin hands were used until the late 1960s.


One of the things that make the Constellation stand out – in my opinion – from the other Omega families of that time, is that the dials on these Constellation models were richly decorated. The use of gold dials, gold hour markers, onyx hour markers, gold hands and gold applied logos and wording is something that wasn’t seen on any of their other collections to this extent. Some of the gold dials had a satin-brushed finish, others had a sun-guilloché pattern or a cross-hatched dial. There were many different dials available for the Omega Constellation in the 1950s and 1960s.

The pie-pan dials were commonly used in the vintage replica Omega Constellation watches. The use of the gold diamond-shaped hour markers is less common and only seen on the earlier models. In the 1960s Omega added the use of the Onyx stick markers on some of the Constellation models. Better said, these are gold hour markers with an Onyx inlay.

Another thing that makes the Constellation attractive to a lot of collectors are those nice fancy lugs. Those early Omega Constellations have rounded lugs and were later a bit more restyled to the 1960s. A bit more rectangular, sharp edges but still very elegant

best replica Omega Aqua Terra 150m Gents 231.10.42.21.01.004

This year, the Planet Ocean family of the Seamaster collection obtained a tremendous deal of attention from the pressand enthusiasts alike. This makes sense as the entire line of Planet Ocean models have been made over both roboticallyand aesthetically. In total, there Swiss Replica Watches UK Online have been 34 references announced at Baselworld this 12 months.

In assessment, 2016 has been a light yr for the 2 different primary best replica Omega Aqua Terra 150m Gents 231.10.42.21.01.004 households within the Seamaster line. The Diver 300M best featured one new reference (Diver 300M Rio 2016 limited version) and the greater formal Aqua Terra collectionreceived three: a blue dial restricted version celebrating the winter Olympics in Pyeongchang in 2018, a ladies mom of pearl 34mm Ryder Cup, and a guys‘s forty one.5mm Ryder Cup. This publish takes a study this men‘s Ryder Cup model.

before we get into the aesthetics of this yr‘s Ryder Cup watch, let‘s talk approximately it automatically. The cling tag of the watch says “8500”, however it is sincerely the 8500C version of the movement which is the “master Co-Axial” version of the 8500. This calibre is wonderful from both the 8500B determined in the sooner era of the Co-Axial Aqua Terra and the 8900 calibre featured in the new forty three.5mm Planet Ocean-an eye fixed we currently reviewed, in the course of which we defined the movement differences among those calibers in much extra element.

The 8500C is basically the most superior OMEGA movement for an automated 3 hand watch, but one which hasn’t long past thru certification by way of METAS. though the movement is designed to skip METAS assessments, it hasn’t been personally tested for such things as 15,000 gauss resistance, accuracy at 33% price, or performance at the same time asfully cased. aside from the internal assessments to prepare it on the marketit’s only external validation is the COSC take a look at the movement undergoes prior to assembly.

best replica IWC Aquatimer IW329001

The IWC Aquatimer Automatic “35 Years Ocean 2000” reference IW329101 reimagines one of the most interesting professional dive watches of all time. That being the original buy IWC watches Ocean 2000 watch collection that was released in the 1980s and produced by IWC for Porsche Design. More recently IWC has reintroduced the Ocean 2000 in the form of this updated Aquatimer model, which represents the latest and greatest swiss replica watches dive watch collection from IWC.


Exclusively for the aBlogtoWatch audience, online men’s fashion retailer MR PORTER (an IWC authorized dealer) has styled the IWC Aquatimer Automatic 35 Years Ocean 2000 watch by complimenting it with a selection of suggested men’s clothing items and accessories. MR PORTER knows best replica IWC Aquatimer IW329001 clothing like aBlogtoWatch knows timepieces. Let’s see what clothing the fashion professionals at MR PORTER paired with this 42mm wide titanium diver’s watch that comes on a technical-looking black rubber strap. Here is what MR PORTER has to say about the particular IWC timepiece and the fashion angle taken here:


The first IWC Aquatimer appeared on the wrists of divers in 1967. It was IWC’s response to the growing demand for dive watches. Now, 50 years later, it has become one of cheap IWC watches more popular collections. To celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Aquatimer, replica IWC watches has released a special limited edition called – deep breath now – the IWC Aquatimer Perpetual Calendar Digital Date-Month Edition “50 Years Aquatimer.” To make it stand out even more, it uses an all-new alloy called Ceratanium.


Material innovation has been a popular way for watch brands to distinguish themselves from their competitors, and according to IWC, Ceratanium (ceramic + titanium = Ceratanium) is an alloy that took them five years to get right. The end result is a material that combines the lightness and corrosion-resistance of titanium with the hardness and scratch-resistance of ceramic – which is also pretty light. The innovation and use of Ceratanium are appropriate in another way because they seem to reference the history that in 1982, sale IWC watches and Porsche Design worked together to produce the Ocean 2000, the first Swiss-made titanium watch. The honor of the first titanium watch actually goes to Seiko’s Professional Diver’s 600m, but that’s a story for another day.
