Apollo 13 and the Omega Speedmaster
It was the first “Professional” Speedmaster model that Omega Swiss made replica watches online. This made it slightly different from the Speedmaster that NASA had qualified in for manned space missions in 1965.Unlike the watches that Rolex, Longines-Wittnauer, and (later on) Bulova supplied to NASA, the Speedmaster withstood all tests.
It drifted off course by roughly 60 to 80 nautical miles during the problem-solving events. This would result in the module re-entering the Earth’s atmosphere at the wrong angle, with fatal consequences. The High-Quality Omega replica watches for the best price astronauts would need to manually control the spacecraft, readjusting it to the correct course. For this, a 14-second burn of fuel was required.
The timing of exactly 14 seconds was crucial. However, Jack Swigert could not rely on the digital timers onboard the spacecraft. Instead, he had to use his Omega Speedmaster Professional 105.012-66, serial number 69, to time 14 seconds using the chronograph function. Needless to say, it worked, and the crew returned safely, splashing down in the South Pacific Ocean on April 17th, exactly 142 hours and 54 minutes after the launch on April 11th.
Now, it might seem that just any watch can time 14 seconds flawlessly. Remember, though, that only the Omega Speedmaster Replica Watches online with cheap price survived NASA’s test, which simulated the abuse the watches would receive during use in space.
Speedmaster Snoopy tributes
A white-dial Cheap Omega Replica with a Snoopy comic on the dial and a silver replica of the lapel pin on the case back. This was a limited edition of 1970 pieces. The last one came out in 2020. It featured a silver dial with blue sub-dials (Snoopy once more in the sub-dial at 9 o’clock) and an orbiting Snoopy on the case back.
The current Moonwatch is close to Apollo 13’s 105.012
Although you can find one of the three Omega Speedmaster Snoopy Replica Watches, they come with a hefty price tag on the pre-owned market. The current Omega Speedmaster Professional reference 310.30.42.50.01.001 was introduced in 2021 and underwent some changes compared to its predecessor.Although the most significant update took place under the dial of this watch with the switch to the new caliber 3861. To the Speedmaster Professional 105.012, to be exact.
The case changed to the exact dimensions and lug shape of 105.012, which was already introduced in 2019 for the Omega Replica Apollo 11 limited editions. On the dial, there’s the famous “step,” and the chronograph seconds hand has the same shape as the one used on the caliber 321 models on the first few Speedmaster generations. I believe you can’t go wrong with any Speedmaster (Professional).
