Captured by our talented in-house photographers, you get a closer look at what makes these top Swiss replica watches so special. This week, we have an Omega reminding us to keep our eyes on the stars, and Rolex that helped to introduce the brand’s in-house chronograph movement.
A Zenith-Era Daytona, But Hold The Zenith – Rolex Daytona Ref. 16520 Replica Watches
As something of an oddity from a company that prided itself on owning the patent on the modern automatic winding system, up until 1988, the AAA UK fake Rolex Daytona watches had always been a manually wound chronograph. In fact, at this point, Rolex was almost 20 years behind in the chronograph game, something that makes more sense when you notice those were also the first 20 years of mass-produced quartz copy watches for sale that changed the watchmaking landscape. Before wanting to invest in making a movement that had literally helped bankrupt watch brands in the past, they went hunting for the perfect caliber.
This is where the story of Charles Vermot and the Zenith El Primero meet Rolex in what is probably the greatest story about watchmaking’s mechanical revival. If you have a moment to read about it or watch a video, you will not be disappointed. The short version is that the first automatic chronograph movement turned out to be the best option, and thanks to the efforts of one man, Zenith would produce the chronograph movement for the cheap Rolex Daytona replica watches.
Now for the twist. This reference 16520 Daytona does not rely on a Zenith movement. In the final two years of production, Rolex started to produce transitional Daytonas that featured perfect Rolex fake watches‘ in-house caliber 4030, which, along with its generational upgrade, the 4130, would go on to power all Daytonas after 1999. This is one of those odd overlaps that allow you to enjoy a special recipe, the neo-vintage case and look of a model introduced in 1988 with a thoroughly modern Rolex inside.
The original “Space Beagle” – Fake Omega Speedmaster Professional Moonwatches Snoopy Eyes On The Stars Limited Edition Ref. 3578.51.00
140 hours, 54 minutes, and 41 seconds – that’s the total time it took for the three Astronauts of Apollo 13 to launch from a rocket taller than the Statue of Liberty, experience a mission-ending failure, orbit the moon to slingshot back to Earth, and finally splashdown in the South Pacific.
For 14 seconds of that harrowing mission, the Astronaut’s 1:1 China replica Omega Speedmaster watches became a critical component. The navigation equipment had to be turned off to conserve power. This meant that to correct the reentry angle of the spacecraft, an engine burn of exactly 14 seconds was required so the crew would not enter too shallow and skip off the atmosphere or too deep of an angle and burn up. The NASA-tested Omega Speedmaster super clone watches for men did its job by being the reliable and accurate chronograph it was designed to be, even under the harsh conditions of this mission.
This earned Omega the Silver Snoopy Award, which astronauts give for ensuring flight safety and mission success. In 2003, the first Silver Snoopy Award-themed Swiss movements Omega Speedmaster replica watches came out in an edition of 5,441 – for the 54 minutes and 41 seconds in the mission time – to commemorate their small role in the Apollo 13 mission. This reference earned the nickname “Snoopy Eyes on the Stars” for the words that are above Snoopy’s head on both the 9 o’clock sub-dial and the back of the watch.
As of today, Omega has created three Snoopy Speedmaster editions, but this first one is the most true to the Moonwatch layout. It has the same dial layout, color, bezel, and movement as the other Omega Speedmaster replica watches wholesale of its generation and adds Snoopy once in the front (in his own sub-dial) and once on the caseback. Of all the special editions, this is one that the crew of Apollo 13 would immediately recognize as the one they wore and the one that earned the special award.
