The new Omega Speedmaster series replica watches “The First Omega in Space” Sedna Gold is the second re-issue of the “pre-Moonwatch” timepiece worn by astronaut Walter “Wally” Schirra onboard the Sigma 7 spacecraft that orbited the earth six times on October 3, 1962.
That watch – Schirra’s personal Omega Speedmaster – marked the start of a long history of space exploration for the Speedmaster Chronograph, which in 1965 became the official certified watch for all NASA manned missions.
The updated model reprises many of the original Speedmaster’s details along with some new touches.
The 18k Sedna gold Omega fake watches (an alloy created by Omega) case has a diameter of 39.7 mm and, like the original, features symmetric lugs. The caseback is characterised by a Seahorse medallion with the engraving “The First Omega In Space, October 3, 1962.”
The brown polished bezel is crafted from ceramic with a matte chromium nitride tachymeter scale. The AR-coated sapphire crystal protects the opaline silvery dial with brown PVD subdials and minutes track. Along with the applied indexes, the Alpha hands are also made of 18k Sedna gold.
The new watch is powered by the Omega caliber 1861 movement replica watches, a hand-wound movement beating at 21,600 vibrations per hour and offering a power reserve of 48 hours, and it is water resistant to 50 meters.
