Before I reach the Speedmaster Solar Impulse Co-Axial GMT that came into my hands at a really unusual way, let’s discuss the Solar Impulse project first for a short moment.
Omega speedmaster solar impulse co-axial gmt preis replica is one of its most important sponsors and supplied the Solar Impulse using a light-weight landing light system, a power dispatcher and an instrument to help the pilot maintain the stability of their aircraft during approach and landing. The latter was created by ESA (also a host ) astronaut and head of flight test performance Claude Nicollier. This system — or tool — signals flight route and alerts the pilot when the wing angle exceeds the normal limits.
Balazs covered the Solar Impulse project in a bit more detail, in this hands-on review of the Speedmaster X-33 Solar Impulse which has been introduced in 2015. The Speedmaster Solar Impulse view I have here today though was released in 2008 and remains’active’ on the Omega speedmaster solar impulse limited edition replica watch site, but not actively promoted. A watch that retailed for $5690 through its debut (on rubber strap) and $6150 to a ceramic bracelet. Now, 10 decades later, the identical watch is priced at $8300 for the complete titanium version (reference 318.104.22.168.01.001).
The Omega speedmaster solar impulse co-axial gmt replica watches Speedmaster Solar Impulse is a 44.25millimeter titanium watch with an Omega speedmaster professional solar impulse clone Calibre 3603 movement. This calibre relies on the Piguet 1285 movement, using a Co-Axial escapement. It’s a date and GMT (next timezone) complication on top of this column-wheel chronograph. Also, the watch has been chronometer-certified from the COSC.
The black dial is made from carbon fibre, showing the sub-counters at 3, 9 and 6 o’clock. The date aperture is located at 4.30. An additional orange hand indicates the 24-hour scale or home time. Together with the crown in the first position, you may set the hour hand independently for exhibiting local time.
Besides this Omega speedmaster solar impulse gmt titan fake watch Speedmaster Solar Impulse is a very intriguing and striking view, how it landed on my desk is possibly equally as intriguing. It exactly reveals what the Speedmaster enthusiast and community is all about.
Just over a week ago, a man out of a postal service came to my office to pick up a bundle. A watch of course, that had to be returned to the distributor once we finished our photo and review work. This Speedmaster Solar Impulse, to be precise. It has been well worn (the way I like them) and he explained it had been from his dad. He asked me when I want to feature it on Speedy Tuesday, as he’s an avid reader and follower of the website himself. I told him that I didn’t have my photo equipment with me, so I want to make an appointment to do so, or if he was around next time (postal services come and go by our workplace quite regularly). And he basically abandoned. Not before we exchanged phone numbers and email addresses obviously, as I prefer to take decent care of the watches we have online loan.
Its case back has the Solar Impulse HB-SIA at the centre, and about the steel bezel, you will get some of the specifications. The watches are numbered (not limited) and each watch has a unique number engraved. I have no clue how a number of these watches are all around, but even despite the lengthy time it’s been in the collection, I don’t think there are quite a lot of these around, since the price is high compared to regular Speedmaster versions. The opinion I’ve here’s No.1975, however I wouldn’t be shocked if the total production is not over 4000 watches. If someone knows, please allow me to know.
A titanium bracelet was one of the 3 options (the other two being an orange rubber strap plus a black rubberized strap). It has screwed links (as can be seen below) and a grip together with all the Solar Impulse HB-SIA engraving.
Although I never believed this watch, it is definitely a cool bit for Speedmaster collectors. The motion is very intriguing, as it has a wonderful GMT function (and a date) and contains a column-wheel chronograph mechanism. The carbon fibre dial is something that is very specific, not everybody’s taste, but definitely adds thickness to it.
I want to finish this week’s Speedy Tuesday feature with a big THANK YOU to the owner of this Specific Speedmaster Solar Impulse. First for handing it over to me all trust, and second because he’s a Speedy Tuesday enthusiast. It is so much fun to talk Speedmasters with like-minded individuals and share info and passion about those watches. Occasionally we visit Get-ToGethers or arrange Speedy Tuesday events ourselves, sometimes it can only happen one day in your office by someone who knocks at your door. What a treat!
