Omega Speedmaster Moonwatch “DARK SIDE OF THE MOON” Apollo 8
In 1968, the Omega replica Apollo 8 astronauts became the first human beings to see the “hidden side of the Moon”, and this chronograph wants to be a tribute to the famous lunar mission. A skeleton dial shows a decorated version of Moonwatch’s 1861 caliber, which reproduces the lunar surface in a rather realistic way.

The details and colors differentiate it from the classic “Dark Side of the Moon” model: the ring is graduated with a tachymeter scale filled with white SuperLuminova, as well as the hour and minute hands, while the chronograph and complication hands are yellow .
Turning it around, around the transparent case, Omega replica is written “WE’LL SEE YOU ON THE OTHER SIDE” (see you on the other side), the last words directed by the astronaut Jim Lovell at the base, a few moments before traveling with the ‘Apollo 8 towards the dark side of the Moon.
The replica Omega black leather strap recalls the yellow details with seams of the same color. The beautiful black case keeps the size of about 44 mm in diameter.
Between the 30s and 40s, pilots and observers were taking such huge chronometers in flight that they could not be fastened to their wrists, the Breitling Navitimer Super 8 is a tribute to those daring timepieces.
The new timepiece presented at Baselworld 2018 is inspired by the historic replica Breitling Reference 637 which was linked to the thighs of the bomber crews in World War II. The crown was positioned on the left side of the case and both its prominent dimensions and positioning allowed an aviator to maneuver it even with gloves.
Since the model Reference 637 was tied to the thigh, in Breitling had decided to place the crown in the upper part of the box. The button was used to activate counting and countdown functions that allowed the aviators to complete their missions with precision.
Breitling has always been a leader in the calculations.

More details on the watch that inspired the Breitling Navitimer Super 8
Model Reference 637 was created by the Huit Aviation Department of Breitling, founded in 1938 by Willy Breitling. He was well aware of the stringent requirements for military and civil aviation, and the department’s name – the French word “otto” – was chosen to recall the eight-day power reserve guaranteed by the on-board clocks and other instruments. The watches developed by Huit Aviation were also admired for their lightweight speakers and their ease of installation.
Willy Breitling replica watches realized that the pilots worked in demanding and ruthless environments that required instruments that were not only highly legible, but also able to maintain exceptional functionality even in particularly difficult conditions. The Huit Aviation Department developed a series of challenging tests that showed that each of its instruments, including the Model Reference 637, could withstand the shocks, vibrations, extreme temperatures and magnetism that the pilots supposedly had to face and experiment in the cabin. pilotage.
Baselworld 2011 was the setting for Patek Philippe replica watches Triple Complication, the second most complicated watch of the brand, next to the Sky Moon Tourbillon.
The new Philippe Triple Complication ref. 5208P is the result of achieving a great challenge, bringing together in one mechanism, in addition to the hours, the monopusher chronograph and perpetual calendar functions.
The hour and minute display is made by the large pointers of the main shaft, with the seconds on a small dial at the 6 o’clock position, along with the phases of the Moon. The monopusher chronograph is a one-button start / Stop and Reset. The hour counter is in the 9 o’clock position, the minutes are in the 3 o’clock position and the seconds are in the large and fine main axis pointer.
The perpetual calendar has 3 windows that indicate the day of the week, the date and the month. The Day / Night and Leap Year functions are positioned within two chronograph dials. At the 3 o’clock position, a small round aperture indicates the leap year and at the 9 o’clock position, another circular aperture indicates day or night.
The replica Patek Philippe Triple Complication features a 42 mm diameter platinum case and crocodile leather strap with folding clasp buckle.
One of Hublot’s greatest launches for 2012 is King Power Unico GMT, with a new made-in-house movement.
With the Replica Hublot King Power Unico GMT it is possible to view the time in 24 different spindles by simply using the red dial lines and the names of the cities positioned on three levels.
The Hublot Replica King Power Unico GMT will be available with a 48 mm diameter case in 18 carat gold or black ceramic, equipped with a black ceramic bezel on both versions. The Hublot movement HUB caliber 1220 Automatic GMT has a 72 hour rope reserve.
Still remaining on the outside the replica Day-Date 40 have new quadrants: among the versions I photographed live at the Basel stand, the platinum version is characterized by a motif that recalls the piqué texture far away and is ice blue, a among those in gold Everose presents a motif with vertical stripes, and one of those in white gold (as well as those in yellow gold) shows a silver dial with motifs in wedges. The decorations are performed by laser on a hand-finished sun-rayed base. Where present, even the applied Roman numerals have a new design.

It is the other obvious somatic trait of this collection. present from the beginning is distinguished by the three rows of offset meshes of the same metal of the box and for its direct attack without the presence of so-called “finals”. On the outside it is a classic, as well as the clasp of the concealed fastener, but in the current evolution it is provided inside the ceramic inserts that, according to Rolex replica watches, greatly reduce the friction and prolong its life.
In particular, the Maison has always had two aspects at heart: precision, intended as a starting point in the design phase and certificate of performance, and protection against magnetic fields.

Regarding the first aspect, as a look for all the models of the brand, the movement of these new replica Rolex Day-Date 40 is equipped with a chronometer certificate issued by COSC and so far nothing special.
The novelty in 3255 is that the tests carried out by the Contrôle Officiel Suisse des Chronomètres, Rolex replica adds its own through a series of tests that provide additional measurements and – with recessed movement – simulations on the wrist.
The Oyster Perpetual Day-Date 40 animated by this Caliber can resist magnetic fields of great intensity even if Rolex does not quantify them at the moment. For its construction, ultra precise cutting procedures such as LIGA have been used which have long been used in Haute Horlogerie.
