Omega Speedy Tuesday – Replica Watches 2015-2016 Selects Speedmaster Professional As “Stars For a Lifetime” Winner

Speedmaster3570502-700x400After a long selection process in several categories, the Replica Watches 2015-2016 winners have just been announced. In the category “Stars for a Lifetime”, the jury selected the Omega Speedmaster Professional ‘Moonwatch’ as the winner amongst 10 watches on the shortlist, from A. Lange & Söhne to Zenith.

The Replica Watches, an initiative from Ebner and with over 60 jury members from the industry is the only watch award that is independent as it drives on media partnerships, not on watch brands. The Replica Watches consists of 5 categories (Classic Stars, Technical Stars, Design Stars, Stars for a Lifetime, New Stars). Omega won in another category (Classic Stars) with their Globemaster model that came out this year (we did a hands-on in-depth review of the Globemaster here). Other than the name ‘Classic Stars’ implies, it is the category for three-handed watches with no functions other than a date and/or power reserve indicator. All watches in the Classic Stars category must have mechanical movements and launched in 2015.

SP_Moonwatch_Prof_31130423001005_vueC_1600x900However, we focus on the “Stars for a Lifetime”-winner, the Replica Omega Speedmaster Professional. In this category, watches could be entered by the jury that could be described as timeless classics whose design and/or technical features give them an appeal that will last for decades. All watches were eligible regardless of when they were introduced.

Well, with an initial introduction of 1957 for the original Speedmaster, you could say it is one of the few timeless classics of that era that is still around and have been around non-stop. This watch doesn’t need much introduction, especially if you are a regular reader of our Speedy Tuesday feature, you (probably) know more about it then most of the Watchstars jury members. So to us fans, it is only logical that the watch won this award although last year’s (the first year of the Replica Watches) winner, the Royal Oak ‘Extra-Thin’ reference 15202, is definitely a Star for a Lifetime as well.

SP_Moonwatch_Prof_31130423001005_fuite_1600x900In the initial 44 models that were entered by the jury members for this category, the Omega Speedmaster First Omega in Space and White Side of the Moon (we did a hands-on review of the WSotM here) were also selected. I don’t get the White Side of the Moon nomination to be honest, with the other Dark Sides of the Moon models available as well. Perhaps I even don’t get the First Omega in Space nomination, as the classic model is clearly the regular Speedmaster Professional ‘Moonwatch’. Well, perhaps that is just ‘noise’ as anything could be entered by the jury members for the initial long list. Luckily, on the shortlist of 10 watches, the regular Speedmaster Professional ‘Moonwatch’ was selected.

I noticed some other odd choices on the list of the nominees in this category (click here), but that got straightened out in the shortlist (click here). I guess it has something to do with the diversity of jury members.

Replica Watches 2015-2016 is, as we are closing in on the end of this year, another proof that this was definitely the year of the Speedmaster for many collectors and enthusiasts. The other BIG thing will happen today, in New York City, where Christie’s will host the Speedmaster 50 auction that we discussed already in-depth (here and here). If all goes well, we will have some more “live” coverage about that auction later on. The demand for this watch (new and vintage) has grown quite a bit in recent years and I wouldn’t be surprised if prices for various Speedmaster models will sky-rocket in the months to come.

Watch manufacturer Fossil to acquire fitness wearable company Misfit

BreitlingReplica Watches and wearables have enjoyed a significant amount of attention over the past couple of years. With the advent of sensors on wearable devices, and prices continuing to fall, the adoption of wearable devices has risen phenomenally.

Last month, Swiss luxury watchmaker Frederique Constant launched its range of smartwatches in India. Priced at Rs 60,000 and more, sales of the horological smartwatch, as it is called, were expected to be quite sedate.

Similarly, TAG Heuer, Breitling and several other watch manufacturers have indicated that they would be looking at the smartwatch space very closely.

According to a report in the Wall Street Journal, the Fossil Group has agreed to buy wearable fitness tracker company Misfit for $260 million. Misfit is cofounded by ex-Apple CEO John Sculley.

Since the advent of Xiaomi and companies such as Micromax in the fitness band business, a watchmaker such as Fossil would see immense potential in a wearable with a focus on style, something that Misfit focusses on. Interestingly, Xiaomi invested in Misfit last December.

Certainly, luxury Rolex replica watches would keep an eye out for startups in the fitness wearable space that make lucrative and strategic acquisitions. The capability to offer fitness data makes it a natural extension for a watchmaker.

Breitling Watches“To me it’s not about the value of the sale, it’s about making sure that the client goes away with a treasured item that has been associated with a significant occasion in their life.”

Stephen has worked in the jewellery trade for 27 years after moving straight into it when he left school.

He said: “When I finished I was not sure what I wanted to do and saw a role working for Zales jewellers and thought that looked interesting. I have not looked back since.”

The Canary Wharf store had a revamp in September, showcasing new dedicated branded areas for Omega, Breitling and TAG Heuer.

Omega watchesWe got three facts about Omega.

1. Omega was in fact the first mechanical watch to land on the moon – with the Omega Speedmaster Moonwatch in 1969. A year later the same watch played a significant part in helping the astronauts on the Apollo 13 mission return to Earth safely after the shuttle encountered some unforeseen problems.

2. Omega Replica has had a strong affiliation with the James Bond franchise since 1995. The latest piece was sported by Daniel Craig in Spectre. It’s the Seamaster 300 Master Co Axial.

3. The brand is also well known in the world of sport, as they have been timing the Olympics since 1932.

Own the Rolex Replica that once saved Bond

290001James Bond’s latest outing in SPECTRE might be taking up the lion’s share of 007-centric attention, be it his impeccable suiting or his choice of Omega timepiece, but as part of Phillips’ upcoming fine watch auction in Geneva, a trinket of genuine Bond history gets set for auction.

The Rolex Replica Submariner 5513 that will be unveiled at the Watch Auction: Two next month is the watch that adorned Roger Moore’s Bond in 1973’s Live and Let Die, saving the spy from dire straits at one point thanks to the addition of a mini buzzsaw doubling as the bezel that hacks through wrist constraints. It’s also fitted with a magnet – a device that helps unzip Bond girl Miss Caruso’s dress.

The secret agent gadgetry might have been retired from active duty – Rolex Replica customised the replica watches Uk to remove its movement and allow space for Q’s latest gizmos – but the piece in question is a horology classic, dating from 1972 and bearing the Submariner hallmarks of serrated bezel and solid, masculine dial. A particularly charming touch is the signature on the back signed “Roger Moore 007” in black marker. The lot will be sold alongside black and white stills from the film of Bond wearing the watch.

The timepiece is one of the relatively rare occasions during Bond’s explosive past that the spy has opted to wear a Rolex Replica. The house was an early favourite in the franchise, first appearing on Sean Connery’s wrist in Dr No in 1962 and going on to appear in Goldfinger and On Her Majesty’s Secret Service, but Live and Let Die is the last appearance of Rolex Replica before Bond employs the likes of Omega and TAG Heuer to assist him with his exotic hijinks.

Other lots include the Rolex Replica “Paul Newman” Cosmograph Daytona, a rare collaboration between the Swiss brand and Hermès , alongside a renowned Patek Philippe World Time Cloisonné pocket Replica Watches, but it’s this cinematic star that’s the horology highlight. All the more elegant to keep the modern day Bond hopeful on time for martinis and misbehaviour.
