The venerable Omega Speedmaster. This is the first time in a long while that we see them come with a semi-skeletonized dial – some might remember a few pieces from the ’90s and early ‘2000s. On one hand, I’m sad to see any portion of that moon-crater dial surface disappear, but they have done it for a really cool reason. Here’s the Best Omega Replica Speedmaster Dark Side of the Moon Apollo 8.
We’re now 50 years on from when the Apollo 8 mission was undertaken. This was the second manned spaceflight that Cheap Replica Watches NASA had launched, and the first to orbit around the moon and return to Earth. So, you could reasonably say that it was the first time that human eyes had directly observed the dark side of the moon.
To commemorate the “dark side of the moon” traversal that Apollo 8 did, they’ve actually put two different finishes on to the movement. On the top side it’s a light color, representing the light side of the moon. Flip the watch over,Omega Replica Watches Swiss Movement and you have a much darker finish on the manually-wound movement, representing the dark side. Not only is this two-tone cool, it keeps the theme. Not many folks have seen the dark side of the moon – and not many will see the dark side of the movement unless the watch is taken off-wrist.
One of those who has seen the dark side of the moon is Command Module pilot Jim Lovell. His words, “We’ll see you on the other side” are engraved on the caseback of the Best Omega Replica Watches Review. He spoke these words just before Apollo 8 lost radio contact with mission control, and they’re fitting to show up on the watch.
While not perhaps thematically appropriate, I do like the use of yellow on the Omega Speedmaster Dark Side of the Moon Apollo 8. Omega does say that they first used yellow on a 1968 Speedmaster, so it ties into the Fake Omega Watches Ebay lineage, I suppose. I just think it pops rather nicely against an otherwise dark watch.
