Omega has released three solid gold Cheap Replica Speedmaster Moonwatch Professionals that are stunning in the best possible way. While the green dial immediately grabs attention, the more laid-back “Gold Panda” dial with a new rubber strap is an understated highlight for me.
In a way, if the solid Canopus Gold Speedmaster Speedy Calibre 321 is a little too rich for your blood, or if you just want a more straight-forward solid, these can be seen as an almost accessible alternative – Gold Speedy.
While they’re not advertised as Omega Day’s most important releases, there’s a reason these Omega Moonshine Gold Speedmaster Moon Replica Watch are pretty much everyone’s talking about.
Moonshine Gold, Omega’s proprietary alloy, is an 18k yellow gold that is lighter than typical gold and is said to be more resistant to fading over time. For any alloy nerd out there, Moonlight Gold is roughly >75% gold, 14.5% silver, <9% copper and >1% palladium.
While I’m not an expert on this, more typical 18k gold is 75% gold with the rest mostly copper. As a result, Moonshine is lighter and more yellow than typical 18k gold, ostensibly explained by higher silver content, lower copper content, and the addition of palladium.
Omega 1:1 replica watches continues to invest in proprietary metals and alloys as they launch their own O-MEGASTEEL, alongside these Speedmasters the new Ultra Deep collection. It’s both a shrewd game for them and does put pressure on other brands.
Back to these three Moonshine Speedmasters. The solid gold case and bracelet feature a PVD-coated green dial, and the solid gold bracelet or rubber strap features gold and black accents, truly beyond the standard price. It does what any good rubber strap should do, and is so comfortable to wear that it feels like George Costanza is draped in velvet.
But of course, comfort isn’t everything at this price point, and it naturally has a Moonshine gold clasp with a 2.3mm extension. But the coolest part is the inside of the strap, which has a positive relief to the lunar surface.
Typical dimensions for these cases are 42mm wide and 13.18mm thick, with a lug-to-lug height of 47.5mm. The bezel is available in green or black ceramic with Expensive Omega Replica Watches Ceragold (gold and ceramic composite) tachymeter scale.
And from the back of the sapphire crystal case back, you can see the hand-wound METAS-certified Co-Axial Master Chronometer Calibre 3861, which operates at 21,600 vph and has a 50-hour power reserve, in addition to a 15,000-gauss magnetic Resistance, free-sprung balance, silicon hairspring, and of course the co-axial escapement. It’s also nicely treated with Geneva stripes, circular graining, gold-plated engravings, rhodium plating throughout, as well as a satin finish and polished bevels on the chronograph mechanism.
Omega has done a great job with the dial color achieved by the green PVD coating. The lovely green sunburst finish has a stepped dial, and the final product isn’t actually as straightforward as the photos you’ve seen here and in other media suggest – it’s so subtle that it’s hard to convey through photos.
These Exact Moonshine Gold Speedmaster Moonreplicawatch Professionals exude sheer drip and excess. Does anyone need a solid gold moon watch? Apparently not, and thinking this way misses the unspoken point that watches are worn as jewelry most of the time. Yes, it has the DNA and bones of one of the three most famous chronographs in history, but you can get it for a fifth of the price.
