Although the casual fake Omega Speedmaster Racing (ref. 318.104.22.168.06.001) automatic chronograph watch takes the collection back to the classic tri-compax layout (as you probably know, unlike more modern versions of the piece, the original 1957 Speedmaster that was powered by the legendary Omega caliber 321 hand-wound mechanism featured only the usual three hands for displaying time, as well as three chronograph sub-dials with no calendar), the redesigned timepiece still offers you a highly legible dial and all the signature elements that you can expect from the watch that accompanied the first man on the Moon, including the famous tachymeter scale, which is engraved right on the black fixed bezel and painted glaring yellow. As usual for the range, the chosen color scheme offers clean, easy to read layout. While the hour and minute hands are traditionally thin, there is still enough lume for the Speedmaster Racing Chronograph to be highly legible even in darkness.
The choice of more compact size not only helps the watch to look more vintage-style, but also makes it a more appropriate choice for those who plan to wear the accessory with business suits, military uniform (including, but not limited to fighter jet pilot’s blackout suits,) and this kind of formal dress.
Compared to currently available mens fake Omega Speedmaster watches, the new Omega Speedmaster Racing comes in a visibly smaller body. While still measuring impressive 15 millimeters in height, the round case of the timekeeper is only 40 millimeters wide.
As you probably well aware of, early iterations of Omega’s co-axial movements were often plagued by technical problems, so, in order to demonstrate potential buyers that the company learned its lessons and significantly improved both the design of the escapement, as well as the manufacturing process, the Swiss watchmaker offers the watch with a pleasantly extensive warranty of whole four years!
Equipped with their proprietary co-axial escapement system, the movement also features a non-magnetic and ultra-lightweight Si14 silicon balance spring.
Manufactured at their own production facilities, the movement is officially certified as a chronometer according to the strictest guidelines of the Swiss-based COSC certification authority.
Judging by the photos, the watch will be available with at least two color schemes for its dial and on at least two choices of straps -a steel bracelet or a black rubber band with yellow Speedmaster inscription- and is planned to be offered at a pretty much reasonable price of $4800.
According to Omega’s press release, the replica Omega watch is animated by their new Caliber 3330automatic movement.
