Hands-On Omega Speedmaster Mark II ReviewAlthough we already did an in-depth item of the Omega Speedmaster Mark II Co-Axial that was introduced a year ago, watches together with a comparison for the original Omega Speedmaster Mark II, we thought it was time to truly wear one for some time and share our experience.To get totally honest with you, when Omega announced their new Speedmaster Mark II Co-Axial I thought to myself it can easily be advised to buy an original model because they were available under 1000 Euro in the marketplace. Although I never moderately dewrinkled to the Speedmaster Mark II - but I are saying it had been probably little one 2003 when I tried one on for the last time - because of the form of the situation, I chose to drag the trigger on the Speedmaster Mark II that arrived in fair condition. It needed some work, therefore i sent them back to my watchmaker who cleaned the movement, installed a brand new crystal together with the situation re-finished by an agent who has the many correct equipment information to do this. The watch and also the restoration set me back approximately 1200 Euro but at the least it is in superb condition again.What surprised me, would it be is truly a very comfortable watch to put on. I discovered myself donning it for weeks uninterruptedly, without changing it for another watch. The hand-wound caliber 861 (Lemania based) is often a joy to wind and possesses proven to be an exceptionally solid and reliable movement. True - featuring its brushed finish on the top and polished angles on the case band - is gorgeous so that as I already stated, remarkably comfortable.So, after we asked Omega for a few replica watches to evaluate (the Spacemaster Z-33 may be reviewed here and soon we'll come with a Seamaster AT likewise), I made sure that the new Speedmaster Mark II was included. That way, pendant watch I really could perfectly see and then try the newest Speedmaster Mark II Co-Axial and feel whether there's much alteration in toting on a regular basis.Omega Speedmaster Mark II Co-AxialOne on the first whatever noticed were the thicker case of the Speedmaster Mark II in comparison to the old Omega Speedmaster Mark II reference 145.014. The other thing could be the dial of course. In addition to the date aperture at 6 o'clock, the hands and writing of 'Co-Axial Chronometer', it did actually me that it's is a racing dial. The same dial as the orange Speedmaster Mark II Racing, however in monochrome. The outer minute markers and hour markers definitely show the racing flag checkers. See below, also in comparison to my Speedmaster Mark II (before restoration). It can make the dial more 'crowded' than the dial of the original Speedmaster Mark II, however, not in a bad way.The tachymeter ring contains Super Luminova and sets out to glow when the light is now a lttle bit low. A great feature, as it is now actually usable in bad light conditions. Although one can ponder whether a tachymeter is in fact being employed today because of the average wearer of any chronograph piece.Things i noticed over wearing the Omega Speedmaster Mark II Co-Axial, is that it is targeted at a very different sort of audience that may purchase a vintage Speedmaster Mark II. The Omega Speedmaster Mark II Co-Axial can be a modern watch, that has a self-winding Co-Axial escapement chronometer movement, a sapphire crystal, date function as well as a effortless to fit bracelet. A 5000 Euro (that is including the recent price increase per February 2015) timepiece fitting each of the requirements someone who wants a substantial timepiece for each day wear. The man - much like me - who buys a 40 - 45 years old Speedmaster Mark II buys it a variety of reasons and it's probably also mindful of the reality that it is a vintage watch and requirements to get addressed with care.Omega created - with this particular Speedmaster Mark II Co-Axial - something like they always do and did, an excellent watch for daily use. A watch that could be very worthwhile for people who love the design & feel of any vintage Speedmaster timepiece, try not to dare to get involved with the snake pit when choosing one. It may also be an exceptionally interesting timepiece to obtain (or receive) once your father or grand father was or is still web-sites the initial piece.No matter what the specific customers may be, the Omega Speedmaster Mark II Co-Axial reference 327.10.43.50.01.001 won't let anyone down. Including the vintage Omega die-hards will likely convey a smile on his or her face when putting this watch on their own wrists, after they view it in the right perspective. A modern watch and a tribute towards the original Mark II. I wouldn't think of it as a re-edition in any case. The 2009 Omega Seamaster PloProf 1200M was even more of a re-edition from the original Seamaster PloProf 600M (see more at overview article between those two) than this Speedmaster Mark II Co-Axial is made for an original 1969 Speedy Mark II.What Omega did right, could be the finish from the Speedmaster Mark II case plus the bracelet. Rather then while using the Speedmaster Pro Moonwatch bracelet, they really took that old reference 1162 bracelet making a modern day type of it. The revolutionary bracelet feels a bit heavier (solid links), has screwed links instead of push pins along with a modern folding clasp that's very easy to resize with six different positions. It is one of many nicest modern Speedmaster bracelets I've seen to date and wouldn't mind to get a similar one around the regular Speedmaster Professional Moonwatch.The thick and solid bracelet matches the Speedmaster Mark II case as well as weight (and thickness) and that i found those to be described as a great companion all through our wearing-test. It is usually the bracelet which fits the 5K Euro price tag in this watch.As we discussed above, the little corrector perhaps there is for the date feature. An average method to advance the date with this Omega caliber 3330. The movement jogs my memory in the caliber 3304 that may be inside Speedmaster of my partner, not having the Co-Axial escapement and Si14 balance spring. Also, the caliber 3330 features a column wheel mechanism with the chronograph. An honest movement and in all probability depending on an active ETA caliber, having said that i am in the dark about. It may be a heavily modified ETA movement purely available to Omega.The chronograph along with other functions performed since they have to do. The start/stop button feels spot-on, as a result of column wheel mechanism. There was no hesitation or awkward behaviour through-out the time of wearing. I can say We are an enthusiastic user of chronographs and time something else entirely and activities through-out the time. The dial provides a clear view on the elapsed serious amounts of the contrast between dial and hands couldn't be much better needless to say.Although I enjoy the caliber 9300 movement that Omega produces, I am glad they didn't put it on for this Omega Speedmaster Mark II since the dial lay-out wouldn't made sense in a Mark II. The movement isn't visible as Omega thought we would use a solid case back, using a bas-relief Seahorse and 'Speedmaster' wording.The Speedmaster Mark II Co-Axial is water-proof to 10 bar (or 100 meters), so another feature of a modern watch that meet today's requirements. You rather take this watch along within the hotel pool than leaving it inside your room, right?I seriously enjoyed wearing this watch and accept it would suit me much better than the Spacemaster Z-33 that individuals received as well from Omega. It is just a no-nonsense modern watch using a clear nod towards the original Omega Speedmaster Mark II 145.014 i always have in my modest collection. Where I wouldn't take my vintage 145.014 Speedmaster buying a rolex , I would personally probably wouldn't mind (or maybe consider it) getting a Speedmaster Mark II Co-Axial being a companion. Think holidays, swimming and so forth.Would I purchase this myself? In all honesty I'd be satisfied with a sophisticated packaged Speedmaster Pro Moonwatch which costs a great deal less. However, I am not saying we both personally don't mind winding a watch on alternate days and also a plexi crystal. Nevertheless may very well be completely different from you. Thus i don't feel I will be the proper customer just for this watch. However, only look at people around me that aren't as deep into watch and who only want to get a good watch for any day wear, this is the watch to have or at best to think about. Particularly if possess a weak area for Omega's Speedmaster history.More information can be obtained here.
