When Omega stopped production of Speedmaster Mark II in 1972, Mark III was introduced. Speedmaster Mark III was inherited by Mark IV in 1973. Then there was Mark 4.5, which went public in 1974 (another Mark IV, an Omega Calibre 1045). The last Speedmaster Mark series is Mark V, which was launched around 1984. Confusing, right? There are more models in the middle, as well as the slight variations above.
In any case, Omega decided to re-issue the Speedmaster Mark II in 2014, and we noticed that the watches had already entered the Omega boutique before it was officially launched at the 2014 Basel fair. Just like the original Speedmaster (professional) Mark II watch, fake Omega Speedmaster Mark II has some changes to the 2014 model. During our date with Omega, we saw the black dial and the racing watch version and the Speedmaster Mark II “LiYaoReNaLu 2016” Olympic edition.
The barrel case and the watch chain are very similar to the original case. If you look closely, you will notice that the dial is somewhat different from the original dial. The track is a little different from the original, with a red exterior track and an orange Omega replica watches logo at 12 o ‘clock. However, the biggest difference may lie in the text on the dial and the fact that the new Speedmaster Mark II 2014 model has a date aperture. Omega decided to use Calibre 3330, rather than the undate manual chain timing machine – just like the one used in the Speedmaster Professional 357x. Xx series. This machine is equipped with the wheel mechanism, coaxial capture system, Si14 silvers and 52-hour power reserve. Of course, except for the triple contrast layout of the dial, it has little in common with the original.
People ask us about the base of the Omega Calibre 3330, because it is not the Calibre 93xx series that Omega has developed. We tend to think that it is based on a number of ETA cores, which are only dedicated to luxury Omega replica watches sale, so Si14 and coaxial escapement. Omega’s decision to use the movement is understandable. This may not be a pure watch – although it’s a great timepiece – but it’s more about people who like vintage watches, but they want to wear something new. Maybe some collectors just think they need something like this in the super league. We believe that the target audience is those who like to see the old Speedmaster Mark II on the wrist of his father or grandfather, and decide to adopt a similar chronometer and all modern technology. For purists, there are still some good old vintage Speedmaster Mark II models whose prices are very attractive.
