Lately, I have come across several noteworthy models featuring nylon straps in our watch market. From the Top Gun 5019 to the BR03-94, these watches with nylon straps have proven to be popular choices among men seeking a rugged military-style aesthetic. Today, I am excited to introduce another remarkable replica watch from the Omega Speedmaster collection: the Omega Dark Side of The Moon. One of the reasons I selected this watch for review is not only because it aligns with my personal preferences, but also because it boasts an artistically captivating name – “Dark Side of The Moon,” a name that perfectly embodies its striking all-black appearance.
The replica Omega Speedmaster Dark Side of The Moon showcases a PVD black finished case, meticulously crafted from 316 stainless steel. With a case diameter of 42.5mm and a thickness of 14mm, it exudes a bold and substantial presence. The black Tachymeter bezel, constructed from ceramic, features white printings for added visual contrast. The dial, adorned with an arch-shaped sapphire crystal, exhibits a refined layout design. Positioned at 3 o’clock and 9 o’clock, two subdials provide additional functionality. To ensure optimal readability, the black dial presents all printings and markers in white color. The subdial at 3 o’clock serves as a 24-hour display, while the small hand on the subdial at 9 o’clock may possibly function as a 60-minute chronograph hand. All stick hour markers, like the hands, are treated with luminescent material, providing a strong green lume light for enhanced visibility at night.
The black nylon strap of this replica Omega Speedmaster Dark Side of The Moon is equipped with a PVD black finished pin buckle. The strap is designed with a nylon front side and a black leather inner part, ensuring a comfortable wearing experience. On the solid case back, you will find the distinctive “DARK SIDE OF THE MOON” inscription in white, accompanied by a prominently curved Seamaster logo in the central area.
Upon examining the case back, you will discover that the replica Omega Speedmaster Dark Side of The Moon houses a reliable quartz movement. Specifically, it utilizes the Japanese OS20 movement, known for its superior accuracy and durability, ensuring a precise and long-lasting timekeeping experience.
