Omega Seamaster Olympiske Lege Gold Collection Hands-On Hands-On Seamaster

Siden 1932 har Omega fungeret som officielle timekeeper for de olympiske lege en samlet total på 27 gange og forventes at fortsætte indtil mindst 2032 – mærker partnerskabet som 100 år gammel. Over de 27 gange har der været nogle smukt farverige designs, der har taget spor fra stopure med Seamaster Olympic Official Timekeeper,replica watches omega til forgrunden af ​​Copacabana Beach med Seamaster Diver 300M Rio 2016, til årets Seamaster Planet Ocean PyeongChang 2018, der tager farverne fra Sydkoreas flag. Det er overflødigt at sige, at fed og farverige modeller dominerer mange af de uk replica watches begrænsede udgaver, som Omega frigiver omkring de olympiske lege. Dressier end de subtile olympiske legetøj ser vi for nylig, omega seamaster olympiske lege guld samling ure kommer i gul guld, omega’s sedna (pink) guld og en helt ny “canopus” (vi vil komme til det senere) hvidguld til kanal Guld-, Sølv- og Bronze-medaljerne, som vindende olympere modtager på podiet.

Den forældede, vintage-minimalistiske emaljehjul viser klog tilbageholdenhed fra Omega, der er tydeligt sikker på den interne METAS-certificerede bevægelse indenfor. Design, der ser tilbage i tiden med succes, mens man fejrer brandets tilknytning til OL? Kontrollere. En bevægelse, der formentlig er år forud for dem af sammenlignelige mærker? Kontrollere. Kan du lave en i stål?

Disse ure måler ind på 39,5mm (samme som de olympiske legetøj), der gør dem konservativt størrelse kjole ure. Den let kuplede æggeskal emalje skive med enkle guldindekser kanaliserer Seamasters af ’50’erne og’ 60’erne smukt. Omega har gjort et fantastisk stykke arbejde med at bringe et moderne liv i mange af deres vintagemodeller (1957 ‘Trilogi’ nogen?), Og mens der ikke er en direkte henvisning til en bestemt model med disse Seamasters, ser de olympiske guldsamlingsklokke ud de har gået lige ud af en James Dean film.

På en mere lille note er det eneste, jeg måske har gjort uden, emaljesporet på indersiden af ​​indekserne. Jeg føler, at det bryder op urskiven og tager væk fra den samlede kontinuitet og enkelhed af uret. Jeg tror, ​​de ville have tjent meget bedre æstetisk omkring omkredsens omkreds, så de ikke slog det smukt færdige blad håndsæt – selvom jeg forstår, hvor det kunne hævdes, at det ville tage væk fra den kuplede urskive. Når man ser det, ser man på nogle vintage Omega Seamaster Olympics-annoncer (indsat over og i hele denne artikel), er det klart, at dette minutspor er solidt forankret i brandets specifikke historie med både dette ur og arrangement.

Håndsættet er den perfekte længde for uret og den samlede læsbarhed af uret. Tidshånden når næsten mikroskopisk slutningen af ​​indekserne, og minuthånden overlapper dem lige nok til at skabe et lille mellemrum mellem spidsen og kanten af ​​skiven, som jeg føler ville have gavn af minutsporet i stedet for det tomme mellemrum. Sekundshånden strækker sig et par millimeter længere end minuthånden og kommer lige til kanten af ​​skiven. Som latterligt som det kan synes at sidde på håndsættet, er det en af ​​de faktorer, der kan gøre eller bryde et simpelt trehånds ur for mange potentielle købere, der selv er inkluderet. Succumbing til et håndsæt, der er for langt eller for kortt (som jeg har set med en række Aqua Terra modeller) er let at gøre i dette segment, og jeg er altid imponeret over et velaffinet og velmålet kjole watch håndsæt.

Fremtrædende på urskiven og trykt i emalje er Omega-logoet i rødt, som kun er blevet brugt på olympiske ure som lommeur. Jeg elsker at denne subtile, men straks klare nik er det eneste på skiven, der giver urets sande DNA væk. Som tidligere nævnt kommer sagen i tre guldlegeringer – Omega’s Sedna (lyserød) guld, gult guld og en ny Canopus Gold. Selve sagen er poleret og den lille løgekrone er en perfekt størrelse til samlingen. En af de fedeste funktioner (og desværre fik vi ikke se det) er Omeg

Omega Railmaster ‘Denim’ Co-Axial Master Chronometer Watch

Omega replica watches has a new version of the Railmaster Co-Axial Master Chronometer. The first Railmaster Co-Axial Master Chronometer was released last year alongside the widely popular Omega 1957 Trilogy watches. Needless to say, the Railmaster was largely overshadowed and overlooked by the famous trio of classic Omega reissues. Still, it doesn’t change the fact that the Railmaster is a great watch for the money. With its versatile styling, impeccable Omega build quality, and a Master Chronometer certified movement, it was one of the most bang-for-buck watches you could buy. Now, there’s a new version with a denim-inspired dial. This is the new Railmaster ‘Denim’ Co-Axial Master Chronometer.

The basic ingredients are the same. This watch comes in a sensibly-sized 40mm stainless case that has a water resistance rating of 150m. It has a solid caseback with Omega’s Naiad Lock system that does two things: a) ensure a uk replica watches good seal and b) that the orientation of the caseback is always upright. The big change is obviously on the dial. The first Railmaster watches have vertically brushed dials in black and silver, while this new model has what Omega calls a “blue jeans” dial with a brushed finish. Judging from the press photos, it certainly looks similar to denim.

The other change is the color of the lume. The first Railmaster watches have faux patina lume for the hour indices and hands, while this new model has light grey lume that looks much more harmonious to my eyes. The faux patina lume on the first Railmaster watches faced heavy criticism for pandering to the whole vintage-inspired watch trend and, to me, it looked out of place. The orange lollipop seconds hand is a nice touch and adds some much-needed contrast and color.

The Railmaster ‘Denim’ Co-Axial Master Chronometer is powered by the Omega Caliber 8806. This is a self-winding movement that has a power reserve of 55 hours. More importantly, it is resistant to magnetic fields of up to 15,000 Gauss and is Master Chronometer certified. It has a free sprung balance with silicon balance spring, a rhodium-plated rotor, and bridges decorated with Côtes de Genève. At this price, I challenge you to find a more technically capable movement.

To complement the denim-style dial, the Railmaster ‘Denim’ Co-Axial Master Chronometer will come with a matching blue denim NATO strap. For those who want something a little more versatile, the watch will also be offered with a stainless steel bracelet. The model with a stainless steel bracelet only costs $100 more, so it makes sense to go for that since aftermarket denim straps can be found quite easily.

Omega Speedmaster Moonwatch Professional ‘Tokyo 2020’ Limited Edition Watches Hands-On

With the end of one Olympic Games comes the merchandising deluge for the next and, still with two years to go, Olympic Official Timekeeper Omega has already started the “countdown.” My guess, however, is that these Omega uk replica watches Speedmaster Moonwatch Professional “Tokyo 2020” Limited Editions will be some of the nicest watches associated with the upcoming 2020 Summer Olympics in Tokyo, Japan. A total of five variants reference the five rings of the Olympic logo with the colors of their bezels and other highlights. While these are intended as Japan-only limited editions, we got to see them hands-on when visiting the Omega factory recently.

Omega replica watches has been Official Timekeeper for the Olympic Games since 1932, and I recommend this Detailed Look Into Omega’s History Of Olympics Timekeeping article for much more about the cool history of Omega’s role in the Olympics. Based on past watches for the Games, we can at least speculate on what Omega’s general approach will be going forward. As with this five-watch collection, for example, Omega did a similar theme with five Seamaster models (hands-on here) for the 2018 Winter Olympics in South Korea, in the colors of the Olympic rings. We can probably also expect at least a couple more Olympics watches still this year, say, in the colors of the host country’s flag perhaps (à la the Planet Ocean PyeongChang 2018 Olympics watch), but for now, let’s look at the colorful Moonwatches at hand.

Three of the five new Omega Speedmaster Moonwatch Professional “Tokyo 2020” watches are all steel, and two are “two-toned” with 18k Sedna (Omega’s own secret recipe for rose gold) or 18k yellow gold. The specs are familiar as a common iteration of the modern Speedmaster, with a 42mm case (50m water-resistant) and the hand-wound Omega 1861 chronograph movement inside (3Hz, 48-hour power reserve). One departure from the most classic Moonwatch is the use of sapphire for that highly domed “box-style” crystal – this is a topic of potential debate, but sapphire crystal increases the desirability for me personally.

The blue-yellow-black-green-red of the Olympic rings are reflected first in the aluminum bezels (ceramic or Omega’s “Liquidmetal” might have been nice) of the various watches. To represent yellow, however, Omega went with a black bezel and yellow gold on the reference 522.20.42.30.01.001 version. Basically, each version is attractive in its own way, in my opinion. The all-blue reference 522.30.42.30.03.001 has a kind of “reverse panda dial” in contrast to black that has a “true panda dial” – meaning a white dial with black subdials, which is extremely popular but still surprisingly uncommon on modern watches despite all the recent vintage revivals. The panda, reference 522.30.42.30.04.001, might be my favorite.

 the reference 522.30.42.30.06.001 with a red bezel and all white dial is perhaps the most immediately eye-catching of the five.

Representing the red and green of the Olympic rings are more colorful versions, particularly the reference 522.20.42.30.06.001 with a green bezel, Sedna gold highlights, and a sandblasted light gray dial. The more colors you combine on a dial, the more difficult it can be to make it work, and here Omega has used no fewer than five, by my count, resulting in the most potentially gaudy option. Finally, the reference 522.30.42.30.06.001 with a red bezel and all white dial is perhaps the most immediately eye-catching of the five. Regardless of any other color considerations, all five models have a red Speedmaster text and matching red-tipped chronograph seconds hand.
