Last year, Omega Replica decided it was time for another ‘X Side of the Moon’ version, now based on the Moonphase model.Anyway, this is the Blue Side of the Moon edition of that watch. With an actual moon phases complication. A Dark Side of the Moon watch with moon phases indicator was something I would have expected sooner or later, but Omega surprised with an all blue ceramics version instead.
This Omega Speedmaster Co-Axial Master Chronometer Moonphase ‘Blue Side of the Moon’ uses a variation on the caliber 9300, namely the caliber 9904. This METAS certified movement has, besides a chronograph, also a calendar and moon phases indicator. You could say that Omega has embedded a high number of their recent innovations all together in this Copy Speedmaster Blue Side of the Moon Omega Watches. The Co-Axial escapement is something that they’ve been using since 1999 of course, but the Master Chronometer designation on the dial is quite recent. These movements are not only chronometer certified by the COSC, after the casing of these movements, the watch is put to the test and officially certified by third party METAS.
Besides having the state-of-the-art Omega caliber 9904 movement, the other thing about this Blue Side of the Moon is that – as the name suggests – everything is in blue ceramics. The case, crown, pushers, bezel, dial and even the Moonphase disc is made of ceramic. The near and far sides of the Moon are on the ceramic dial using LiquidMetal technology, much like how the tachymeter scale is applied to the ceramic bezel.Ceramic over titanium, for flexibility and strength. Putting this Omega Replica Watches on the wrist is something special. The presence on the wrist is amazing, and especially in day light, the blue is really.. well.. blue.
There are two sub dials, one shows the hour and minute recorder of the chronograph, the other shows the date and running seconds. The date indicator has a red ‘half Moon’. Red can also be found on the tip of the chronograph seconds hand as well as the word ‘Speedmaster’ written on the dial. The 18 carat white gold hands and hour markers give a nice contrast to the blue ceramic dial. The best detail, of course, is the moon itself.
