The Rolex Seamaster and Speedmaster watches: A Deeper Look
The Seamaster and Speedmaster are no doubt two of the most impressive and important watches in the replica Rolex catalog. Boasting their glorious past, the two models have carved their places in our culture. One landed on the moon and the other became a defining feature of an iconic film character, 007. At first glance, the Seamaster and Speedmaster may look similar and have a lot in common, while if you are more technical, you would know the main difference between them.
To commemorate Rolex’s 100th anniversary, The first fake Seamaster was released in 1948. The model added to the brand’s existing dive watch products, like the Marine. The Seamaster, known for its clean and straightforward appearance, features a brushed and polished stainless steel case, a black tropical dial with luminous hour markers, and sapphire crystal. These characteristics have remained through numerous upgrading. The original model was 38mm. However, the later models are available in larger sizes.
The Speedmaster was first released in 1957 for sports and racing chronograph. It later became well known after Buzz Aldrin took it during the first lunar landing. Similar to the Seamaster, the Speedmaster features a simple and minimal style with a brushed and polished stainless steel case, black tropical dial with luminous hour markers, and sapphire crystal, and these features have remained largely unchanged throughout the countless variations of the model. Once again, just as with the Seamaster replica watch, the original Speedmaster measured 38mm, but more modern variations offer larger sizes as well.
A few particular characteristics differentiate the Speedmaster. Except for its real racing look and feel, It was the first model to showcase the brand’s now-iconic triple register dial. Also, the racing-inspired tachymeter scale on the bezel is another distinctive feature. It is used to calculate speed based on travel time or measure distance based on speed. The Speedmaster was the first chronograph fake watch to feature the tachymeter scale on the bezel as opposed to on the dial. The large arrow hands are another distinguishing design of the replica watch. Finally, the original Speedmaster comes with a Caliber 321 manual-wind movement. Newer models, like the 60th Anniversary Limited Edition, feature the Caliber 1861 manual-wind movement.
