Omega has just released the latest version of the Apollo series of Speedmaster timepieces, the 2024 updated Luxury Omega Speedmaster Speedmaster Dark Side of the Moon Apollo 8 Replica watch. We’ve got our hands on it, and this new version brings some exciting updates, including an updated movement.
Whether modern or vintage, part of the appeal of a Speedmaster is its erratic complexity, with even the most dedicated enthusiast trying to remember and understand the countless variations. The Dark Side of the Moon Apollo 8 stands out from the Swiss Quality Fake Omega so-called “Omega DSotM” series because it does not have the usual two subdials, but three subdials, powered by a beautiful-looking movement that abandons Automatic winding, instead adopts the extended appearance of the chronograph mechanism.
Shortly before the release of this latest model, we saw a teaser video from Omega Swiss Replica Watches, which hinted at a hand-wound, skeletonized black movement, black ceramic watch with “Dark Side of the Moon Apollo August 21st” Case and Eagle Eye dial. You might even find a dial with a cutout to the left of the 6 o’clock subdial.
This latest model for 2024 is officially called the Omega Speedmaster Dark Side of the Moon Apollo 8, and these are the most important specs you should know. The new Speedmaster Apollo 8 watch is equipped with Omega 3869 movement. This Best AAA Fake Watches certified movement has many of the same architecture as the 1869 movement in the 2018 model.
The main difference lies in its Master Observatory certification, which is approved by the Swiss Federal Institute of Metrology (METAS). This proves that the movement is now resistant to magnetic fields up to 15,000 Gauss and now features a free-spring balance with a silicon hairspring, all of which are significant updates to the 2018 Speedmaster Apollo 8’s internal regulator needle setup.
Omega Replica Watches sale also claims that this new Omega Speedmaster Dark Side of the Moon Apollo 8 watch “shows richer lunar detail with clear laser engraving and contrasting surface,” with the lighter side of the dial representing us The lunar surface as seen from Earth, while the far side shows the dark side of the lunar surface that only astronauts can see.
Viewed from the front, the best way to distinguish these two generations of Speedmaster Apollo 8 Fake Watches Shop Online is the TACHYMÈTRE text on the bezel (now in white enamel instead of yellow), while the running seconds display at 9 o’clock now uses a Saturn V Rocket Pointer – exactly the product that fans and collectors of the Speedmaster series are crazy about.
One cool detail is that the skeletonized dial is made of aluminum rather than brass. The case back, with its “WE’ll SEE YOU ON THE OTHER SIDE” inscription, pays homage to the first humans to see the far side of the moon in December 1968, as astronauts aboard Apollo 8. Notably, the entire crew of Apollo 8 wore Omega Speedmasters during the mission.
It is much wider, and the new Omega Speedmaster Fake Watches Online maintains this, with a diameter of 44.25 mm, which we have already associated with the ceramic Speedmaster. Still, the case is filled with unique details, including alternating brushed and polished elements, and a complexly shaped bezel.
