It was at BaselWorld 2014 that Omega debuted the new Omega speedmaster X-33 series replica watches UK, which we referred to as “the real heir to the cult favorite Omega X-33 aviation/aerospace watch of the 1990s.” Now, as a new-for-2015 version we have the Omega Speedmaster Skywalker X-33 Solar Impulse Limited Edition, which adds what first appears to be a stunning color combination that links this space-age watch to an interesting project called Solar Impulse.
We were excited to go hands-on with the new X-33 in 2014, a version with a case and bracelet in grade 2 titanium and a color scheme that overall appeared to be mono-chromatic – save for a splash of red on the seconds hand. With the Solar Impulse limited edition the X-33 receives a much more colorful outfit and one that, with its deep blues and vibrant greens, is admittedly more linked to planet Earth than the cold nothingness of outer space.
While the 45 millimeter wide case fake Omega watches are still crafted from grade 2 titanium, new is the beautiful blue of the ceramic bezel, the green and blue rings on the periphery of the dial, as well as the green seconds hand. The reason for this Earth-themed color selection is that with this limited edition, Omega connects the X-33 with the Solar Impulse project, which they have been a part of since its earliest phases back in 2006.
The aim of this project is to create an airplane that is powered only by solar energy and is capable of flying around the globe, as Swiss Omega replica watches online put it: “making a bold statement about viable alternatives to non-renewable energy.” In March 2015, the around-the-world Solar Impulse flight will take off from Abu Dhabi and over five months the pilots will stop in Asia, North America and Southern Europe, flying day and night, to complete the first solar-powered circumnavigation of the world.
Omega has been in bed with the Olympics committee for a long time, being the “official time keeper” for most of the events. What this basically means is that Omega gets to put their name on the clocks and such that time events. But it is possible that Omega replica watches UK is actually making some of these time keepers, most of which are digital these days and rely on sensors, rather than human hands for operation.
Having said that, the opportunity for Omega to release special Olympics event watches is too tempting to resist, and this time around, they have something really special. Despite the thick layer of controversy which exists atop this year’s Summer Olympics, Omega is able to provide a truly charming timepiece in commemoration of the event. Surely to become a collectors item as the watch so gracefully combines the five ring Olympian logo with chronograph functionality that the Omega Speedmaster is know for. Of course, not settling there, Omega had to fill each ring with a different function. So what did they do to fill the extra two dials, as a standard chronograph only has three? Well they turned one of them into a day of the week indicator, and another into a seven day counter. Meaning this chronograph now measures up to seven days. Pretty nifty. The middle ring that is the day of the week counter used a broad “T” shaped hand to make use of the limited area to display the day of the week.
Styling is conservative, but nice. This is not a “modern” timepiece, but a mere tasteful alteration on a classic theme. Red trim lines the watch, along with the Omega logo, and some of the numbers. A color often used when attempting to represent speed. The case is gold, contrasting well again the gold case and black leather strap. A steel version and metal bracelet are available and the gold versions come in rose or yellow gold. Inside is Omega Caliber 3888 automatic movement fake watches, of course with a co-axial escapement. Power reserve is an impressive 52 hours.
The best part? No cheesy lettering or logos on the face of the Omega high quality copy watch. The only indicator that this watch represents a tribute to the Olympics is the design of the subdials in the interlocked five ring pattern. Otherwise the watch is understated and tasteful. I personally am not a fan of watch that has too much logo work or unnecessary writing on the face. Leave that type of thing for an engraving on the caseback, if at all. People who wear this watch are going to do so for more than just the Olympics. Let it be a perfect daily wear watch, with a subtle reminder of its purpose. That is the best way to go, and Omega thankfully retained that logic here.
One of the top releases that I personally could not wait to go hands-on with at Baselworld 2015 was the Omega Speedmaster White Side Of The Moon replica watches UK. I am certainly not alone when I say I am a fan of the original 2013 Dark Side of the Moon , and the somewhat lighter, more contrasty Grey Side of the Moon made for a most welcome alternative. So when this, the White Side – or rather, the Bright Side, perhaps – happened, we wanted to see how it measured up against its more serious-looking elders.
While Swiss luxury Omega fake watch holdings and brands appear to have been running at full steam to exploit virtually any new trend and market gap there is, we are still not exactly spoiled for choice when it comes white watches… So, is the Omega Speedmaster White Side Of The Moon enough to make a difference and show us that iconic designs can look good in eye-wateringly bright, snow white? Let’s see…
…But, before we do that, let me start straight away by pointing out what may have been the only really off-putting element of this 2015 release: its strap. This white alligator leather strap with white stitching is nicely made and amply padded but, most importantly, it also sports a glossy, shiny finish that is very, very feminine-looking indeed. Don’t get me wrong, that is not necessarily a bad thing, as I am sure that this all-white piece with this shiny strap would look amazing on the wrist of a discerning fashionista lady… However, this choice of leather further highlighted one of the two sides of the “WSotM,” which also happens to be the side that makes many prematurely title it as a women’s watch. The reality could not be further from the truth, though, as beyond this imminently feminine look lies the other side of this white watch: a sporty, casual, and yet refined-looking timepiece that can, and in fact does, look great in more informal settings. So let us gloss over the strap choice this one time.
eIf you are not a fan of (or even outright dislike) white color Omega fake watches, what’s about to come probably won’t suffice to change your mind, but it is certainly worth discussing nevertheless. What helped explain to me how this “snow-white” version makes the Speedmaster look so remarkably different was a chat I had with some designer friends of mine about the issue of choosing the right color for a product. I learned that white is one of, if not the best color to paint a product if you wish to let its shape speak for itself. I would suggest looking at cars that you see around you (preferably in real life, not images): the ones in white display most of the curves, bulges, and indentations, also known as “negative spaces” that have been thoughtfully added to the chassis of the car, making it easier to appreciate the finer details of the design.
Celebrity watch spotting is one of our favorite past times – whether they are featured on Talking Watches or spotted in the wild, we love to know what the “beautiful people” are wearing. Today we bring you the latest in celebrity watch gossip with Omega Speedmaster series replica watches UK ambassador George Clooney’s newest movie, Money Monster. If you haven’t heard of this movie, it is directed by Jodie Foster and stars Clooney and Julia Roberts. I won’t give it all away but the plot it has something to do with money, a television host, and an angry investor.
But what I did notice was the Omega Speedmaster Moonwatch Professional sported by George Clooney throughout the movie. This 42 mm, yellow-gold watch is an obvious choice for him, as he is an ambassador, and is quite fitting for his character, financial guru and television host Lee Gates. The watch features the caliber 1863 manual-winding chronograph movement and has a gorgeous black dial with yellow-gold case and bracelet.
