Another OMEGA Speedmaster Co-Axial Caliber 9300 ReviewOmega Speedmaster Co-Axial Caliber 9300 ReviewIt's Speedy Tuesday! Sometimes, it's refreshing to determine other people's opinions over a watch. Over a Speedmaster one example is. Today, we provide stage to ?ukasz Doskocz, Editor in chief chronos24.pl. replica watch iwc We did a Speedy Co-Axial 9300 Review here before (simply click here), which has been in truth the best read article on FW in 2012.The legendary Moonwatch inside a completely new - stylistically and mechanically - version. Now with manufactured automatic movement, date and large(r) steel case.On a yearly basis, the watch industry produces tens or even billions of timepieces. At the same time around number of hundreds (or else thousands) new models join myriads of old ones. In case you multiply this by the number of years which the watch industry is around, the end result is going to be huge.Among this vast offer but there is however exclusive, narrow list of models that can be honestly called icons, without exaggeration (which is unfortunately so well received in modern watch PR). Certainly one of this "iconic icons" is without question the OMEGA Speedmaster, mechanical chronograph through the manufacture in Biel - on of the most significant timepieces from the mighty watchmaking history. Before we start with this Caliber 9300 review, let's discuss several of its history first.Moonwatch aboard the Apollo 11Popularly referred to as Moonwatch (thanks to its link with NASA and astronauts toting outside their space suits), the Speedmaster is perfect for many a role-model perfect mechanical stop-watch (chronograph to be precise). The tri-compax dial layout, classic, perfectly proportioned stainless steel case, black-and-white design, manually wound movement - pretty much everything element together caused the truly great success of many models and versions of Speedmaster, specifically those nearest the initial used over the Apollo 11 mission.That it was previously, about the 21st of July, the Apollo's 11 lunar module landed around the Moon, making the Speedmaster the first and (because it proved) the sole watch on its surface. Following years brought a few more OMEGAs in space, including the life-saving Speedmasters from the Apollo 13 crew, that used its mechanical chronograph to soundly fly the ship entering the global atmosphere.Another significant history step  (well maybe, less exalted because Moon landing) from the watch came for the 2011 BaselWorld (inside capital of scotland- Basel, in Switzerlandin the world). OMEGAs design team, led by Jean-Claude Monachon, took on risky and difficult task - redesign the iconic "cult-status" Speedmaster. It may look like almost suicidal in an attempt to re-do such well know, respected and loved exemplar however the new Speedmaster turned out to be somewhat of an evolution. Subtle, but significant.Over 50 years after its birth, modern Speedy is usually a tuned-up, perfectly refreshed version, which by accident presents exactly this 3 major changes, i always myself a lot needed to see on this watch  (contrary to the previous ones). And, as well, it is important to highlight it is a new watch, not a competitor nor successor with the good old Speedmaster Professional.Caliber 9300 Review - The devil is incorporated in the detailsAt the primary glance the Speedmaster A.D.2011 is usually a watch highly a lot like its predecessors. Profile of the case, black bezel with tachymetre scale, watches convex sapphire glass protecting matte-black dial with white details (and really bright luminova) form the Speedmaster DNA as you may know it.Most important factor different  you observe is lack of the next counter. Replacing it, at 6 o'clock, is large and intensely well readable date window with black disk and applied white numerals. Chronographs hour and minute indications have become gathered using one sub-dial, at 3 o'clock. It was possible thanks to the second big new thing - the manufactured in-house calibre 9300.Designed with a column wheel, double main-spring barrels (60h power reserve), the co-axial escapement and many high-tech silicon hairspring here is the new proud babe of OMEGA and its particular earliest, own chronograph movement - the milestone certainly. Introducing the manufactured calibre in place of second-hand movements definitely improved OMEGA status by significant much.What on earth is much more important (and it is the explanation of the this already stated) would be the fact 9300 is  good and reliable construction rolex copies for sale . Well visible within the sapphire caseback, the movement's column wheel and vertical clutch guarantees quite smooth and pleasing use. Concentrating the hour and minutes face to face one dial makes reading of measured time supposedly easy (although I have no idea relating to this yet). Massive steel rotor winds 2 mainspring barrels for full 2,Five days of operation.The Co-Axial escapement and balance wheel (paid by cross-though bridge) with silicon hairspring guarantees stability, precision and effectively lowers the number of needed lubrication, which inturn elongates use of entire calibre. The jumping hour hand may be set in 1 hour steps (both directions) permitting easy time adjustment while traveling, but one missing thing is quick date setting - turning the crown and hour hand round and round is very little most fun want to do. Cal.9300 own character is hidden (in other words revealed) inside the decoration and finishing. Black balance wheel, black hairspring, red engravings and cotes-de-arabesque (Geneva stripes in the form of waves)  on bridges and winding rotor provide the movement both recognition and character. And it also looks great indeed too.Overall the 9300 caliber by OMEGA is a good chronograph, comparable using the better of its level out there (Breitling 01. Zenith El-Primero and TAG Heuer 1887 for instance). Although die-hard Speedmaster fans and collectors may well not (and probably will never) accept Speedmaster using this type of sort of movement and changes, it's qualities could possibly convince them right at the end.Apart from the automatic movement (which in my opinion can be a major step, while i find automatic far more comfortable every-day than manual) along with the date (which for me is critical in the watch) all of the the mentioned "3 big new things" can also be highly expected (again - alone) case dimensions increase.The first Speedy was not a tiny watch go ahead and - 42mm is optimum size for a lot of, adequate both for smaller and bigger wrists. For me though certain aspects of the case structure and also a wide bezel made everything way too small, too delicate. The Speedmaster Co-Axial Chronograph received enlarged, quite substantial and bold 44.25mm by 16mm (tall) case constructed from steel (optional red gold or platinum).The same old case profile with integrated lugs bent slightly on the wrist permit the watch sit very nicely and cozy available, inspite of the height of 16mm caused by profiled, convex sapphire glass at the top and convex, sapphire caseback, that both looks fantastic and give that you great look from the movement inner workings.Matte black (why not a bit to matte) alligator strap fits nicely in the case, and it's fastened on a adequately made and functioning double-safety-button fold-over clasp. For additional traditional look the steel bracelet is additionally available.Caliber 9300 Review - Speedmaster Co-Axial ChronographThe presentation in the new Speedmaster Co-Axial Chronograph does not really ever customize the fact, that for the majority of collectors the actual Speedmaster are invariably the Professional "Moonwatch" with hand-wound Lamania calibre, hesalite glass, solid caseback using the Seamonaster engraved along with a tri-compax dial. It absolutely was however not OMEGA's intention to generate a new Moonwatch to switch the older one, that will anyway be constantly produced and offered in unchanged form. The revolutionary Speedy can be a new watch, fresh offer which will please people as i am and more on the Speedmaster geeks (sorry Robert-Jan) collecting everything in connection with the very name "Speedmaster".I it is known as a useful, more daily-war adjusted timepiece with quality improvements. Do all this changes justify over 100% rise in prize? I only say yes - for the investment ($8.200 USD / +/-6400 Euro) you have perfectly made, nicely finished timepiece with the story (and history) behind and great, manufacture calibre. It's there with Breitling Chronomat B01 and Zenith El-Primero. I love chronographs, I like Speedmaster's rich astronomical history, I value and appreciate automatic winding, I examine the date in this little watch each and every time - Speedmaster Co-Axial Chronograph is the Speedy I waited for and crave to have. Thank you OMEGA.Pros (+)- date - great, automatic, good-looking, in-house movement - enlarged case (only enough) - great readability - iconic design - historic backgroundCons (-)- no quick date setting - over 100% price increase (when compared to 'Professional')Text: ?ukasz Doskocz, Editor in chief chronos24.plPhotos: Dariusz Lewi?ski
