Speedy Tuesday - Hands-On Omega Speedmaster Apollo 13 Silver Snoopy Award ReviewNot too long ago I made a mistake. When the Omega Speedmaster Pro Apollo XI 45th Anniversary became available, while using titanium case and Sedna gold bezel, I didn't order it straight-away. What followed replica quartz bracelets watches , became a find a decent priced (which means - not over list price) Apollo XI watch. Finally I had been offered a few them, but all way over your initial retail price in Euro currency. So, I chose to stop that from happening again so i ordered the revolutionary Omega Speedmaster Professional Apollo 13 Silver Snoopy Award and before I found it inside the flesh in Basel.My luck was that we was very intense with ordering an Apollo 13 Silver Snoopy Award, therefore i could pick a person number that has a special intending to me. Like many people have when requesting a unique number. However, it turned out nearly Omega whether to grant the dpi in my experience, of course.If we had our appointment in BaselWorld with Omega, the Speedmaster Apollo 13 Silver Snoopy Award got full attention from many of us (understand this article, with 5x our Top 5 BaselWorld replica watches + 5 bummer replica watches). Happy which i ordered one, simply because it would be a welcome boost to my Apollo XIII Mission patch model and my 2004 Snoopy Award Speedmasters. Furthermore, it will be my first Speedmaster Professional that has a white dial. Not at all something I've specifically been surfing for, yet it's a great variation.So after waiting patiently for 7 months, I received an e-mail understanding that my watch was heading to your Tourbillon Boutique in Amsterdam. Omega started the delivery of the Speedmaster Apollo 13 Silver Snoopy Award in October, but I can not seem to discover what the specific order is within delivering. Also, nobody has his or hers yet, from some tips i understood. My assumption is usually that the hand-engraved casebacks more and more difficult that initially planned, but this is just a wild guess.Although we already covered the brand new Speedmaster Professional Apollo 13 Silver Snoopy Award in this post, I figured it will be interesting to execute a more hands-on review based upon some everyday wearing. As I've experienced in the very last weeks, is that the watch definitely wears a tad distinct from the off the shelf Moonwatch.Omega Speedmaster Apollo 13 Silver Snoopy AwardI won't begin detail regarding the Snoopy as well as the relationship while using Speedmaster. We've covered that lots of times here i did a complete article on simply that replica watches subject for our sister-publication WatchTime (How Snoopy appeared over a Speedmaster dial).However, what that worried us a bit was the printing within the the dial. There is lots taking there. "What might you do in 14 seconds?" is printed as well as 14 small comic frames within the minute track for the dial and means exact timing of 14 crucial seconds throughout the return with the Apollo 13 Command Module in 1970. Then, there is certainly your Beagle inside sub dial at 9 o'clock with a little text balloon across the center pinion saying "Failure just isn't an option!". Words that were spoken in the 1995 Apollo 13 movie by the actor in the role of Flight Director Gene Kranz (he not used this line in the actual mission, but down the road used words of comparable kind within the interview while using script-writers. After the sentence was used within the 1995 movie, Gene Kranz used 'Failure just isn't an option' to be a title for his autobiography that appeared in 2000.Particulars on the DialThen there are numerous details that we really didn't noticed during our One hour BaselWorld appointment, but over the past fortnight with the watch.Dial in the Omega Speedmaster Apollo 13 Silver Snoopy AwardOne of these details is the hand on the 9 o'clock sub dial (with the regular seconds) is all-white, as you move the other hands are black. I desired to evaluate our BaselWorld photos to find out whether that has been the case together with the salesman versions in the watch (0000/1970 numbers), however they were white then as well. A lttle bit silly perhaps i didn't notice it previously, even so the minute I wear it my wrist it really did actually "pop". I imagined how a small black second hand would check the dial, however think they made the best decision with a white hand. Another detail is that the numerals within the three sub dials look a lttle bit different when compared to regular black dial Moonwatch: they are not filled.The hands, hour markers as well as the Snoopy at 9 o'clock are painted with Super-LumiNova. In addition to the idea that it allows you to read the time under low-light conditions, additionally, it looks pleasant, particularly the glowing beagle at 9 o'clock.Lume shot taken with iPhoneI've had two Speedmaster Professional replica watches which has a sapphire crystal before (the sapphire sandwich model along with the Broad Arrow Moonphase model) that i traded for other replica watches over the road, but I always liked the looks & feel with the sapphire. I write 'feel', as being the watch will gain some weight because of the sapphire crystal. The side effects with the sapphire crystal - compared to the Hesalite plexi crystal - would it be doesn't supply the watch the effect of a magnified dial. This effect is because of the domed plexi crystal.The Case and BezelThe case has got the same dimension as the normal Omega Speedmaster Pro Moonwatch, that is 42mm. However, the watch carries a bit different proportions and thus a slightly different appearance within the wrist from the normal Moonwatch in my opinion. It is regarding the thickness from the case band, it is slightly thicker as opposed to normal version. That, and also the ceramic bezel, helps to make the watch look a tad different when worn for the wrist as opposed to Moonwatch. Perhaps that this sapphire crystal also is important in this slight difference in appearance. The ceramic bezel includes a tachymetre scale that is filled up with Super0-LumiNova.Omega Speedmaster Apollo 13 Silver Snoopy Award caseHowever, the most important aspect of the the event of the Speedmaster Professional Apollo 13 Silver Snoopy Award is needless to say your back side.The snap caseback (not screw-down) incorporates a silver Snoopy medallion installed on a silver plate and stuffed with blue enamel. Silver powder is sprinkled manually about the enamel, giving each watch a unique look. Obviously, the silver Snoopy resembles a certified Snoopy lapel pin which was provided by NASA to Omega to the role of the Speedmaster during Apollo 13. Inside metal caseback, may possibly the volume of the watch engraved (of 1970 pieces, the year on the Apollo 13 mission), and also the Apollo XIII 45th Anniversary as well as the Eyes about the Stars line. See below.Omega Speedmaster Apollo 13 Silver Snoopy Award caseback with inscriptions and Silver Snoopy MedallionMovementJust including the regular Omega Speedmaster Professional 'Moonwatch', the Apollo 13 Silver Snoopy Award has got the hand-wound Lemania based caliber 1861 inside. It provides a rhodium plated finish plus a power reserve of 48 hrs. The chronograph relies on a shuttle cam mechanism as opposed to a column-wheel. On the official Omega website, we have seen that they can claim that the caliber 1861 movement was worn on the Moon, that isn't the case so far as I know. Actually, I'm not really even without doubt there is a caliber 861 (its predecessor) for the Moon, aside from the watch I discussed from Ron Evans (in this article) which was found in the Apollo 17 CM, replica watches but not for the Moon. I'm not sure where this claim arises from around the Omega website, but caliber 1861 (1997) will never be within the Moon for certain. Perhaps they refer to a hand-wound Lemania movement in general (caliber 321 was worn about the Moon).Strap and Folding ClaspThe strap is coated nylon and contains a leather lining. It is remarkably comfortable and also the steel folding clasp allows you to adjust to the proper size. I reckon that I could truthfully place a metal bracelet with this watch, many of the modern 20mm Speedmaster bracelets would do, truly prefer putting it on around the soft strap. The strap tapers from 20mm between your lugs to 18mm with the folding clasp. The strap is a touch padded near the case, but gets flat for the two ends. As said, an extremely comfortable combination.Coated nylon fabric strap and steel folding claspPackagingThe Speedmaster Apollo 13 Silver Snoopy Award will come in an excellent wooden black box. Different one since the regular Moonwatch, however a tad bit smaller and better. There is also a special newspaper concerning the Apollo 13 mission inside package, and a polishing cloth, traveling pouch, leather card holder for your two plastic card sized cards and a silver Snoopy lapel pin.Omega Speedmaster Apollo 13 Silver Snoopy Award boxThe watch posseses an Omega newspaper within the Apollo 13 missionPrice, Availability and VerdictThe Omega Speedmaster Pro Apollo 13 Silver Snoopy Award is bound to 1970 pieces only and from a few things i know, is Omega sold each piece for their retailers and boutiques. You will be capable of source one from a boutique or retailer still , although some people might of them have quite long waiting lists. The shop price is 鈧?000 Euro but out there (Chrono24 and eBay) I've come across them for 鈧?1.000 and 鈧?5. speedmaster professional watches 000 Euro already. This sort of not able to source one, this may be an option, if money is of less importance. However, I would come up with a round of calls and e-mails first. While people ordered them, a variety of them probably won't actually claim theirs for whatever reason.I am a Speedmaster guy therefore it is hard to give an unbiased verdict on the watch. However, from the Speedmaster collector's perspective I've got to state that - plus the Apollo 11 45th Anniversary type of last year - the Apollo 13 Silver Snoopy Award watch reference 311.32.42.30.04.003 is definitely an awesome exclusive edition. However the dial had me a bit worried before hand and made me choose to old 2004 Snoopy Award dial, I must review my personal with that. The modern white dial is brilliant as well as the writing and images about the dial usually do not distract in all honesty. Would I recieve it as a my only Speedmaster watch? Not likely, as I feel you'll want to go proper 'Moonwatch' (new or vintage) when you only desire to have one Speedmaster. If you're an collector or currently have the 2004 Snoopy (and Apollo XIII Mission patch model), you desire this one as well, sooner or later.Additional information is available via Omega on-line.
