Omega Chronograph Replica
When writing and talking about Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean Replica Watch, we often throw around the phrase ‘wrist presence’. It’s one of the most indefinable, yet important, aspects of any timepiece. It’s a sort of horological X-factor that incorporates style, size and, well, coolness. This titanium Planet Ocean chronograph has more wrist presence than I can comfortably handle, if I’m brutally honest. When it was shown to me at Baselworld, it was on a tray with a half-dozen other Planet Oceans, in all manner of colours and configurations.
In terms of icons, the Omega Speedmaster Replica is definitely a big one. Of course, everyone knows about the “Moonreplica watch”, the Speedmaster Professional, the one that has been worn on the Moon by Buzz Aldrin and that is still in the actual Omega catalogue. However, there’s another vintage edition that should tickle your interest, the Speedmaster Mark II, a very 1970s replica watch that also has a link with NASA and space research.
