RICHARD MILLE 011 watches replica for Baselworld 2016, Omega has made a big push to incorporate METAS Master Chronometer movements into their watches, but not all pieces are getting that specific upgrade. For one of their latest releases, they have come out with a new version of the Speedmaster Grey Side of the Moon made with a historically apt material. The new Omega Speedmaster Grey Side of the Moon Meteorite watch seems a bit obvious when you think about it, but the folks at Omega know fans of the line will appreciate the novelty.Yeah, that is not exactly a name that rolls off the tongue, is it? The Omega Speedmaster Grey Side of the Moon Meteorite (ref. 311. does tell you very clearly in its name what it is all about. In this case, it’s the meteorite dial from a rock that fell from space in Namibia long, long ago. I have seen one meteorite-dialed watch in person, and plenty of photos, and I will admit that the etched surface never fails to captivate, as that crystalline weave is unlike anything else I have seen. It also makes sense in the context of the Speedmaster being known as the Moon Watch – why not get another space reference in the mix?

The meteorite is not the only interesting material in use on the Omega Speedmaster Grey Side of the Moon Meteorite. The 44mm ceramic case is there but how it’s topped is new this time around as well. Not just a “simple” ceramic bezel, the bezel ring is made of silicon nitride which is supposedly both harder and lighter than ceramic, with a tachymetre scale printed with OMEGA Ceragold™. Trademarks aside, this looks to be a clever way that the brand has gotten their rose gold compound to bond with the ceramic, creating a smooth (and I would hope durable) application.The rose gold provides a soft burst of mellow color against the overall appropriately grey look of the Omega Speedmaster Grey Side of the Moon Meteorite, and manages to get the indices and handset standing out against the patterned dial without the brashness that a yellow gold could carry. I know I personally shy away from gold watches as well as those with gold accents, but I think it does make sense here. If you went with any sort of noncolored metal say, polished steel or silver, it would have a tendency to get lost in that dial. With the red gold here, you get the demarcation you want without it overwhelming the watch. The look of the Grey Side of the Moon has been retained in the grey ceramic case, grey leather strap and OMEGA Co-Axial calibre 9300. The size is kept to 44.25mm and the design layout of the original watch has not been lost.This is the first time that a tachymeter scale has been created using OMEGA Ceragold™. This seamless technology is used for the 18K Sedna™ gold bezel that is layered with silicon nitride. The reddish tone of 18K Sedna™ gold is also used to create the indexes and hands of the watch.For the incredible meteorite dial of this watch, OMEGA has sourced slices of the Gibeon meteorite that fell in Namibia in prehistoric times. The ribbon-like “Widmanstätten” pattern is clearly visible and also unique for each model.The original OMEGA Grey Side of the Moon is revered for its outstanding design and innovative thinking. Today, this new model delivers beauty in ceramic and 18K Sedna™ gold, as well as a real piece of space that you can wear on your wrist.The main issue – that we’re not necessarily sharing here – will certainly be brought by some hardcore vintage collectors, who will spot the lack of resemblance between the original CK2998 and this limited edition. Of course, there’s never been a Speedmaster with a “Panda” blue dial. However, Omega never does “copy-paste” reissues. Many watches have vintage-inspired elements but they never are exactly the same. The colour apart, this CK2998 is actually rather close from the original, with matching hands, matching case, same layout, of course a different movement (as the old 321 is not part of the show since 48 years) but nice details like this collector’s grail “lollipop hand. All of this is matched with a nice colour combination and the use of modern techniques, like the ceramic tachymeter bezel with luminous graduations. Overall, yes, this Omega Speedmaster CK2998 Limited Edition is very cool.
