Rolex or Omega? Which one is the first watch that landed on the moon. I think it is the Omega, what do you think? Because the name, Omega Speedmaster, it is also called Moonwatch. Although Speedmaster is not sold as well as the Seamaster of Omega, it also has some popular models, for example, the Dark Side of the Moon. Before the appearance of OM factory, there are only some small factories that were manufacturing the replicas of Omega Speedmaster Dark Side of the Moon, however, there were still a lot of people that have asked me about this watch since I opened this blog. Now, OM factory pushed the sales of replica Omega Dark Side of the Moon to another height. This model is even in the top five list of best-selling replica Omega watches.
Like its name “Black Black”, the Omega Speedmaster Dark Side of the Moon is in full black. The watch is made of black ceramic in case and bezel, 44mm case diameter is large but is exactly in line with our aesthetic standard. Solid ceramic case has brushed finish, it has a great texture and feels very good. Tachymetre scales on black ceramic bezel are in matt black. Two chronograph pushers use different processing, which is polished and contrasting with the brushed case.
Black dial has a micro-sand finish, there are two small dials, like the two eyes of owl. Small second hand is running on the subdial at 9 o’clock. The subdial at 3 o’clock now works the same way as genuine watch, there are two hands on that subdial, the longer hand is displaying minutes chronograph, while the shorter hand is hour-chronograph pointer. The movement has been modified by OM factory, so the minute and hour chronograph could be completely achieved on this replica watch.
Black nylon strap may be the best match for this watch. The texture of the black nylon band is exactly in line with the black matt finish of the watch. On the back side of the band, the side that touches your skin, is made of genuine leather. I tried this type of band on my hand, it maintains the soft wearing comfort of full genuine leather band, but also looks very cool due to its black nylon material on outside.
