This omega speedmaster replica design inspiration drawn from the mission patch is similar to what we saw last year with the Omega Apollo XV 40th anniversary watch, although unlike the Apollo XV 40th tribute, this year’s piece is a precise replica of the actual patch.OMEGA’s Speedmaster Moonwatch “Apollo XVII” features a 925 silver, hand-patina dial embossed with the Apollo XVII patch which captures Man, the Future, the Recollection of Apollo and the Flag. The effect is that this piece is a bit more eclectic, and yes, the chronograph more or less useless, but this is not the point of this watch.
In 2010, it was the Omega Replica Watches.Of course Omega’s prominent role in space travel is well known, and in addition to the original issue pieces, Omega is known in more recent years for its tribute watches. And on back it goes! For example, this year saw the Speedmaster “First Omega In Space” reissue that we saw for 2012. In 2009, it was the Speedmaster Apollo 11 “40th Anniversary” Limited Edition.
