Among luxury sports replica watches, popular choices include pilot watches, dive watches, nautical watches, and race-inspired chronograph replica watches. Today, however, we’re looking at a space watch — the Omega Speedmaster Professional “Moonwatch” chronograph. While there are so many versions of the Omega Speedmaster that have no ties to space exploration, it’s the Moonwatch that’s undoubtedly the most famous Speedmaster of them all.
That comes as no surprise of course since the Speedmaster has the distinction of being the first watch to make it to the moon on Buzz Aldrin’s wrist. Since 1969, Omega has continuously celebrated this feat with a steady stream of new iterations of the legendary Moonwatch, including the Speedmaster ref. 3570.50. In fact, the Speedmaster ref. 3570.50 is one of the closest to original Moonwatch model. Let’s take a look at the awesome Omega replica collection they have introduced.
Buzz Aldrin has made the Omega Speedmaster a replica watch that truly stands out.

The Aqua Terra, launched as a yachting oriented offshoot of the iconic Omega Seamaster Replica in 2002, has always appealed to the maritime minded. Now the iconic Swiss watch brand has unveiled a fresh take on the sporty timepiece with the hopes that it will attract even more fans. The most striking feature of the watch is a so-called “teak” dial, designed to evoke the deck of a sleek luxury yacht.
The OMEGA Seamaster Replica Aqua Terra is made for the yachting community.
For the 2017 redesign, the pattern now “sails” horizontally as opposed to vertically, with much better effect. The Aqua Terra dial was originally modeled on the second generation Seamaster 300, a watch made famous by James Bond. It has now been simplified with less text and a repositioned date window for a cleaner read, something 007 would appreciate under fire.
