Speedy Tuesday - Hands-On Omega Speedmaster Apollo 17 Reference 311.30.42.30.03.001Late March, we introduced the gold Omega Speedmaster Apollo 17 'Tribute to Gene Cernan' to you, limited to 272 pieces. We received a couple of requests also to cover the steel version, the reference 311.30.42.30.03.001 (confined to 1972 pieces). Let's take a closer look.Omega Speedmaster Apollo 17 311.30.42.30.03.001As a tribute to Gene Cernan (who passed on on January 16th on this year) and commemorating the 45th anniversary in the Apollo 17 mission. Gene Cernan was the astronaut to line the very last foot for the Moon, that has been exactly at 05:34 GMT. That explains the writing around the dial, just underneath 'Speedmaster Professional'.The gold piece (tied to 272 pieces) can be something we wrote about after March, you will discover it here. It was initially limited by 72 pieces (and out of stock), however the demand was so high of those gold Speedmaster Apollo 17 replica watches, that Omega increased it 272 pieces. It really is perhaps not the most effective strategy to do this (especially for anyone who has a confirmed order), but however, if your demand is really high, Omega made 200 extra people happy.Well, for 1972 other individuals, Omega made the stainless-steel version of the Speedmaster Professional Apollo 17, with reference 311 .30.42.30.03.001. Based on the regular Moonwatch, the Apollo 17 edition carries a 42mm case made from stainless steel and features the Lemania based caliber 1861 movement (Lemania 1873). Unlike the original Moonwatch, the Apollo 17 has been delivered using a sapphire crystal. The same as a few of the previous limited editions (just like the Silver Snoopy Award for example), Omega may seem to desire a sapphire crystal of those rather then Hesalite (plexi crystal).Blue CeramicOmega is thinking about using ceramics for the majority of in their new sports replica watches. The main Moonwatch is among the few mixers is (still) without ceramics and hopefully they make it like that. This Speedmaster Apollo 17 though, uses blue ceramic for its dial and bezel. The blue bezel uses Ceragold due to the tachymeter scale, the industry patented strategy to create a seamless integration of ceramics and gold.The blue dial on the watch combines nicely together with the gold applied hour markers and sub dial rims. watches The hands that indicate any time are also made of gold while the chronograph hands are white baton hands. The Omega brand name and writing may also be in gold, to complement another gold accents.Within the 9 o'clock sub dial you'll find the Apollo 17 patch. The gold Speedmaster Apollo 17 incorporates a gold applied mission patch. It would have perhaps been too much to utilize that towards the metal Speedmaster Apollo 17 also. So instead, you'll discover a white patch. The caseback on the Speedmaster Apollo 17 also shows the mission patch, embossed in steel.The bezel in the caseback demonstrates that this watch is commemorating the 45th anniversary on the Last Man for the Moon mission which is often a tribute to Gene Cernan fake patek philippe . The volume of each watch is engraved because well. There isn't any experience of 'Professional Moonwatch' for the caseback, like every the newest 2017 regular Speedmaster Professional 'Moonwatch' designs have.Above you observe clearly that the watch runs on the sapphire crystal rather than plexi crystal. Also you can see that the Speedmaster bracelets are utilizing screws since after some duration. An issue that we've seen in the early on on the Apollo 15 exclusive edition 40th anniversary from 2011 and was later on adopted inside regular Speedmaster Professional collection likewise.Some ThoughtsTo be brutally honest along with you, when I first saw this watch it scared me considerably. The press images that put their hands up on some places ahead of the official release showed a really (very!) blue dial. I also mentioned this inside our coverage with the gold edition in this Omega Speedmaster Apollo 17 watch. However, inside flesh the blue dial is extremely attractive instead of obtaining the slightest resemblance together with the hard blue tone it had on the rendered PR images. The gold and blue is a very attractive combination for the dial plus the Ceragold blue bezel. The one somewhat strange thing will be the racing-like minute track around the watch watches for boys . The fact that why it was done on this Moonwatch variation, in which there isn't link with the racing styles of yesteryear. Reasons aside, it does respectable.Their email list cost of this Speedmaster Apollo 17 in stainless is 6500 USD (or 6000 Euro).
