I must say that this dial looks identical to the original one. The strap is made from leather.The dial on this omega speedmaster apollo 13 silver snoopy award replica looks very cool. The white dial is completed by a black bezel and markers that feature a dark center with a luminous surround. For those that aren’t aware of this, it’s a reference to the 14-second course correction that 13 crew timed and managed to correct their return trajectory. If you look closely at it, you will see Snoopy sleeping in the running seconds subdial at 9 o’clock. It’s beautiful crisp white dial and a period-correct. The only difference I see is on the back of the case. Luckily, not many will notice that. Instead of having another representation of Snoopy on it, you can see the Speedmaster logo.
To sum it up, the omega speedmaster apollo 13 replica played a significant role in the mission. The oxygen tank blew up on the spacecraft’s way to the moon, so its electrical system wasn’t working anymore.The Omega Speedmaster Silver Snoopy Award was created to commemorates the 45th anniversary and the Silver Snoopy award given for the Speedmaster Moon Watch, by NASA. The Speedmaster Moon watch has helped the Apollo 13 mission return to Earth safely after an explosion in space. The Speedmaster had a crucial role as it has helped to time the re-entry procedures.
This omega speedmaster replica is powered by Japanese quartz movement. From what I noticed, it keeps a good time. Many replica Omega watches come with this kind of movements. As I see it, it’s always a relief to know that you can leave the watch aside for a day or two without having to worry about the power reserve getting consumed as it happens with many of the automatic/kinetic watches. Also, the seconds hand has a ticking motion, not a sweeping one, but it’s hard to see it because it’s one of the small subdials, If you want to see a sweeping motion, you can simply start the chrono.
I have a omega replica watch so it was a great opportunity for me to compare these two watches and see which one is better. From a fist look I can say I like them both, but let’s get into details.One of my friends recently received his Omega Speedmaster Silver Snoopy Award and I was eager to review it.
