I chose the Co-axial replica watch in the end. I found it more suitable for my style. Omega one of the best-known luxury watch brands. Its popularity even crossed the space borders. Some of the most famous collections include the Speedmaster, Seamaster and Constellation.
The dial on this Omega Globemaster Co-Axial looks very cool. It’s beautiful crisp white dial and a period-correct. If you look closely at it, you will see Snoopy sleeping in the running seconds subdial at 9 o’clock. Right next to him it’s written: “Failure is not an option”.
I am not an emotional person, but I must say that this is an inspiring quote from the 1995 Ron Howard film Apollo 13, especially if you’re thinking about the mission. Next to the first 14 seconds on the dial which are highlighted, you can read the following: “What could you do in 14 seconds?” For those that aren’t aware of this, it’s a reference to the 14-second course correction that 13 crew timed and managed to correct their return trajectory.
That’s a legit sports dial with a checkered flag pattern all over the edge and red markers as well. Wide open dial and a good looking scratch-proof large crystal that sits nicely on a brushed and polished case. Case has very nice polished accents on edges that make it look really cool. It’s a large case so the dial and crystal look huge.
Hands are the same Speedmaster moon hands if you like and the white and orange mix and match well together just like on the real deal. Chronographs are cloned just like on the original piece.
