OMEGA SPEEDMASTER DARK SIDE OF THE MOON APOLLO 8 WATCH

In a trustworthy place, when I see evidence of a big brand listening to customers, I value every strange and rare occasion. According to many of the brand’s loyal followers, some of Omega’s hot items, including the dark side of the awesome Moon series, are too wide and thick for their own benefit, forcing many people to put their purses in their pockets. I very much hope to buy watches at the store. Now, with the dark side of this Omega Speedmaster Planet Apollo 8, we see another rare occasion where the brand listens and brings us a warm new version, responding to their cries – even if it means a violation of the previous The self-imposed rule or violation violates the creative sacred glass ceiling so far. Behold, the thinnest and most wearable Omega DSotM does.

I said that Omega opposes some hardcore rules on Apollo 8, and I think that understanding these is more important than knowing the story of Apollo 8 from beginning to end. First, as we will see, movement choice plays an important role in making this Apollo 8 as specific as possible – Omega’s own movement choices are worth noting for two reasons. First, we rarely see one big brand transforming its “smaller” movement into one of its higher-positioned series; however, this is what happened here. The fancy endless high-tech coaxial automatic chronograph of other DSotM wristwatches was replaced by the new rotary movement of the 1861 manual winding movement – which will be described in detail later. Second, we see one of the major brands creatively tailoring one of its core actions. However, Omega really came out of its own way, making this calibre 1869 (here called) outstanding.

In addition to motion problems, Omega also demonstrated its capabilities – finally! – Get original ideas with the original Moonwatch look and make something, now it’s already here, let me ask “why not happen so soon?” I think we will agree that we think this is a very rare brand Get this freedom through the core product. To make things better, Omega has not only adopted the entire process, it has not made Speedmaster Apollo 8 a non-limited edition product. Yes, you see the truth: this is a cool new super fighter. Astonishingly, it is not a limited edition, but it can actually be bought in a boutique – because it is very successful, it is hard to believe It will not.

the black-white-yellow contrast means that you can actually read the time accurately.

Into the chase here, reducing the thickness is obvious because it is awesome. This is very obvious and great. The previous version was rather hamburger, which was made up of their lame space age, black/gray/white ceramic Speedmaster atmosphere. The Speedmaster Apollo 8 serves as a very smart, creative and lovable middle ground between the DSotM series deficiencies and the romantic Moon/NASA story about the regular lunar watchers.

Do not misunderstand my point of view. The width is 44.25 mm. The width of the non-limited version of Apollo 8 is the same width as Omega’s moon-themed modern moon phase themed ceramics, but the final appearance and wearing are much smaller. Thanks to its significantly reduced thickness. This is due to Omega putting its complex coaxial movements aside – all of which are equipped with an automatic winding device – and replacing it with a customized version of the hand-wound calibre 1861 in the classic Moonwatch, and renamed this as “Moonified” in 1869 “variant.

The case is beautifully finished with sharp lines and alternating brushed and polished surfaces which, at last, can stand out more as they aren’t overwhelmed by the sheer size of the thing.

The loss of a solid automatic winding structure means that the Omega Speedmaster Planet Apollo 8 dark case may be 2.5mm thinner than the previous DSotM watch, so it is only 13.8mm thick. Yes, it’s still great, but if you can see a few shots on it, it means that the watch can now finally be placed flat on its earrings because there is no dignity in the leather/canvas strap. The case should be able to do it.

ROLEX COSMOGRAPH DAYTONA WATCH

The upgrade time of Laurent Daytona Steel Co., Ltd. is over because we have seen it for 16 years. 904L Steel’s new Baselworld-2016 Rolex Cosmograph Daytona reference 116500LN is waiting to be completed. It uses a new black ceramic overall Cerachrom baffle, using the updated Tacitometer design, the old carved metal baffle off. It still has the 4130 movement, but now Rolex tests with an accuracy of +/- 2 seconds per second, which is super-magical for mass-produced chronographs.

Back to the calibre 4130, when Rolex designed it they they concentrated on reducing the number of components in the chronograph function

This rating means that the new Rolex Daytona watch will also launch the Rolex Top Observatory certification, where you can read all the information in this regard. One new aesthetic choice I like is the black snail dial on the white dial, and the other version available on the black dial is the grey snail dial. Now, let’s take a look at this new Rolex Cosmograph Daytona and see for yourself what it has…

The aforementioned monobloc Cerachrom, a material developed by Rolex, is replacing the bezel engraved with metal on the outgoing Rolex Cosmograph Daytona. It is based on the 1965 Rolex Cosmograph Daytona and is equipped with a plexiglass black bezel, but the Rolex Cosmograph Daytona will join ceramic bezels with siblings Rolex Submariner and Rolex GMT-Master II. Due to its hardness, Cerachrom’s scratch resistance is excellent, and in addition it prevents the black bezel from fading due to UV light.

Rolex also endeavored to protect the readability of the frame through a process they developed, which involves molding the scale into ceramic before heating the scale to 1500 degrees Celsius. After that, it was coated with a thin layer of platinum using a PVD process. What this process does is create a defined level of contrast with platinum and black ceramics.

In addition, the speedometer scale has been updated so that it now “follows” the circular shape of the dial – the number is “horizontal” in previous versions. The final point about the front bezel is that it is a single piece that holds the crystal on the middle shell, which helps to prevent water.

The chronograph is accurate to within 1/8th of a second, if you need that kind accuracy. Interestingly, between the seconds markers of the dial we still have 4 notches, so you can’t really read that 1/8th accuracy.

As mentioned earlier, the automatic movement 4130 is still the engine that drives the Rolex Cosmograph Daytona. However, the previously lauded COSC Chronometer certified movement is now also approved by the Rolex Super Precision Chronograph. For the record, Rolex did not plan to leave the COSC because they wanted to use it as an external independent certification. However, their internal certification requires a -2 / + 2 second accuracy rating, which is being applied to all new Rolex watches.
