When I first saw this super series “on the dark side of wrist watch, I was attracted by it.Because I want an all black super series wrist watch.It has been the Omega (Omega) watches fan long-cherished wish. Although omega introduces several PVD coating super series wrist watch and occasionally DLC coating of the super series custom wrist watch, still the official did not launch a completely black super series professional wrist watch.
Super series “on the dark side of” wrist watch is a complete piece of black zirconia ceramics.The dial and watches button also USES the same material.The soft nylon strap with simple and elegant black ceramic watch button. Casing diameter of 44.25 mm, with omega homemade 9300 coaxial timing movement, this movement is also used in hippocampal series Marine omega timepieces in the universe.
Not everyone likes the design of the only two timing on the dial plate, especially those who used the super series classic three timing set layout. Although I think it is not a super series of purists, it have to say, “on the dark side of” wrist watch dial (or 9300 movement) are very easy to adapt. Calendar display located at 6 o ‘clock position, had a very good balance effect, make the dial look not too messy, and smooth the dial and polishing ceramic bezel is very suiwatches.
About 44.25 mm in diameter than classic super series professional watches “the moon” 42 mm diameter is larger. But wear on your wrist also won’t appear too big. Although recent wrist size is smaller, but that doesn’t mean the 44 or 45 mm watch will soon disappear. In my point of view of 42 mm diameter looks a bit big in the 1960 s, but today is a normal size, as in the ’60 s 34 mm in diameter of wrist watch is considered normal size of wrist watch, but in today’s small size wrist.
The point of view also applies to black wrist watch.A few years ago, PVD and DLC coating of wrist watch is beautifully.Later is ceramic and forging carbon wrist watch.Now these are ordinary watch. No matter how long, but it can be seen, people demand for black wrist watch is always present.Omega will release such a completely black super series wrist watch is based on the high demand. In the past few years, in fact, omega product development director jean-claude Monachon said they are trying to use black material to make a super series wrist watch. Finally, they decided to use black ceramic, in my opinion, this is also a very wise choice. At least it’s more than PVD or DLC special, but at least this is the real black watch!
Black zirconia ceramics dial did not like some people told me, seem to be very messy. On the contrary, I think the watch dial is overall very neat, dial at the top of the red word “Speedmaster” as well as the timing of the second hand red tip appears very harmonious on the black dial and make watches look more fresh.
Watch back the large sapphire mirror, whether to wear on your wrist or to appreciate the omega 9300 movement is great. No use metal or ceramic watches back, so the large sapphire crystal occupying most of the space, lets you fully enjoy the 9300 movement. This timing clock carry 9300 coaxial machine core, and equipped with Si14 silicon material balance wheel balance spring, enjoy the warranty period of four years.
The price of the watch about 8900 euros contain 21% VAT, the price for a lot of people are quite concerned. Many omega class fans are used to omega super series professional watches “the moon” price around 4000 euros, hippocampal series Marine chronometer universe price around 5000 euros. So 8900 euro for the omega class fan, is indeed a great pricing.
So super series “on the dark side of” wrist watch is worth the price? In my opinion is worth and the high demand of this watch seems to verify it. You can’t take this wrist watch and carry 1861 manual chain movement on the super series wrist watch, because carry 9300 machine super series wrist watch is made a lot of innovation, and the “form” the moon is completely different.
