Inspired by replica Omega the lunar dust that captured mankind’s first and last steps on the Moon, this model is crafted from white ceramic that has been transformed to a shimmering metallic grey. The 44.25mm white case material is subjected to 20,000 degrees Celsius for replica Omega three hours in the plasma heating chamber, which containing different gases, which causes it to turn grey. The case, caseback, bezel, crown, pushers and buckle are all replica Omega crafted from the same ceramic material.
OMEGA’s new Speedmaster “Grey Side of the replica Omega Moon”, bearing reference number 3188.8.131.52.99.001, is hitting stores soon. This piece is a follow-on to 2013’s highly-demanded Speedmaster “Dark Side of the Moon”, and while it shares some similarities, it also features several design elements that distinguish it from any other model the brand has ever introduced, such as grey ceramic case, luminous ceramic bezel, and a sand-blasted platinum dial.
The replica Omega sand-blasted 950 platinum dial gives the Speedmaster “Grey Side of the Moon” looks absolutely killer and underscores the craftsmanship that went into creating the Omega replica watch. Two integrated platinum sub-dials distinguish the timepiece from its legendary predecessor, OMEGA’s “Moonwatch”; the 12-hour and 60-minute counters on the same sub-dial at the 3 o’clock position, while the sub at 9 o’clock is the small running seconds. The red-tipped, center-set seconds hand is for the chronograph. Look closely and you will also see a small “Pt 950” notation just above the center hands on the dial.
Though not pictured, engraved on the caseback is the name of the Omega replica watch: “GREY SIDE OF THE MOON”. The Speedmaster “Grey Side of the Moon”replica Omega is presented on a grey leather strap and has a rubber insert with holes on the area where the buckle is fastened for added durability. You can see also on the underside of the strap there is red stitching that complements the red accents on the replica Omega Co-Axial calibre 9300 visible through the sapphire crystal caseback. The Cal 9300 is a co-axial chronograph movement with a silicon balance spring.
While it does not carry the gravitas of the original “Moonwatches”, but as for me well I love the modern look and replica Omega modern technology of both the “Dark Side” and “Grey Side” of the moon. The Omega replica watch comes in a special presentation box, and I’d guess that it will be every bit as popular as the Dark Side of the Moon…and the same price, too: $12,000.
