Review 2020 Longines Heritage Military Marine Nationale Watch Replica

Longines launches the new classic Longines Heritage Military Marine Nationale watch replica L2.833.4.93.2, a model with a beige dial and a cognac-coloured leather strap faithful to the military watch that inspired it, but in keeping with modern aesthetics and technical regulations. The seconds hand, a rarity for the brand, adds a special touch to this watch.

Longines’ momentum with retro timepieces continues with the new Longines Heritage Military Marine Nationale replica. The new remake is clean and legible, just like its inspiration, which was made for the French Navy in 1947. The vintage original, the ref. 5774, was an instrument for shallow diving – albeit one without the familiar rotating bezel of a diver’s watch that wouldn’t be invented until the 1950s. Consequently, it was a clean and legible watch, and so does the vintage reissue.

Case & Dial

At 38.5 mm wide, the Longines Heritage Marine Nationale imation watch is relatively small by modern standards, even though it has been significantly enlarged from its original’s 33 mm diameter. That said, the size of the remake is good, especially coupled with the relatively thick case, which preserves the proportions of the original. As is the case with many vintage watches that are smallish yet thick, the aspect ratio of the case has a sturdy feel that evokes a bit of romantic nostalgia.

The height of the case can be attributed to the “box type” sapphire and wide, double-stepped bezel, which also leaves the dial looking smaller. The vintage proportions are well done and give the watch visual interesting, since it is distinct from most modern designs.

Similarly, dial that stays close to the original, a faithfulness that elevates its charm. The tone is a warm ivory colour, matched with an unusual dark brown Super-Luminova on the numerals and hands that mimics the look of heavily-aged radium on vintage watches. Beyond the faux patina, the dial is also finished with random, grained finish, which is meant to recreate the aged surface of the vintage original – and no doubt an extra that is polarising.

The Marine Nationale replica recreates the feel of the original quite well, despite being substantially larger. That’s accomplished by retaining the proportions of the original, as well as smaller but important details, like the shape of the seconds hand and the vintage logo on the dial. And thankfully there is no date to ruin the symmetrical dial.

Movement

In the spirit of the prototype, the new watch is fitted with a box-shaped sapphire crystal and a screwed back. The Longines Heritage Military Marine Nationale 38.5 mm replica is equipped with the L888.5 self-winding movement, which is an upgraded ETA 2982 with a power reserve of 64 hours, compared to the 42 hours of the standard model, developed exclusively for the brand and fitted with a silicon balance spring.

The movement runs at a slightly lower beat rate, as a result of the silicon hairspring. The material makes the hairspring resilient to creep, magnetism, and temperature changes.

The only weakness of the Marine Nationale – especially given it is a remake of a dive watch – is the minimal water resistance of just 30 m.

Like most of Longines’ other remakes, the appeal of the Marine Nationale lies in its affordable price of US$2,000, which is strong value especially given the upgraded ETA movement within.

Replica Omega Speedmaster Racing Master Chronometer 44.25mm Watch Review

Replica Omega Speedmaster Racing Master Chronometer 44.25mm Watch Review

New for 2017, the Omega Speedmaster Racing Master 44.25mm Chronograph replica 329.32.44.51.01.001 is a modern – and until now chunky – Speedmaster Moonwatch that is getting a lot of attention. Yes, yes, it’s as wide as the front, but it has a very slim profile. It’s not all about looks, nor is it smart, as it packs the latest generation METAS-certified, 15,000 Gauss-resistant Master Chronometer caliber 9900. Let’s see if all this, a lower price and some orange accessories are enough to get anyone excited to go racing. There are a few more quirks to watch out for.

Replica Omega Speedmaster Racing Master Chronometer 44.25mm Watch Review

 

Brief History

Instead, I will just keep it short and concentrate on its most modern iteration. Although to me it feels like it was way longer ago, it actually happened in 2011 that Omega launched the Speedmaster Co-Axial Chronograph replica, a modern Speedmaster equipped with an all-new, 9300-series, two-register, automatic chronograph movement. Since then, they have officially called this collection a range of different and wildly confusing names, including the Speedmaster Moonwatch (yes, that’s right), although it very much belongs to that group of 99.99999% of all watches that have never ever been to the moon. I mean it. Google Omega Speedmaster Moonwatch and see what comes up first – it’s this collection and not the classic and actual Moonwatch Speedy. The closest this modern Speedy has been to the moon is when it received a cool moon phase indication recently, with a stellar blue-dial model that Ariel reviewed here.

This is to say that around the classic Omega Speedmaster “Moonwatch” replica (the one that did go to the moon and back) grows an increasing variety of other Omega Speedmaster chronographs. And while the “original” Moonwatch I bet will remain unchanged until we colonize the moon, it also is one of the very few watches that deserve the label “iconic.” The good news this entails though is that the rest of the Speedmaster collections are free to change and evolve as Omega and the market dictates. Now, with the Omega Speedmaster Racing Master Chronometer, we see what that unequivocally dictated direction is, and I am pleased to see and report: it means more wearable, technically more advanced, and visually more fascinating.

What’s New For The Speedmaster

Cutting straight to specifics: the case is 1.1mm thinner when compared to the Omega Speedmaster fake (still referring to the 2011-model that didn’t go to the moon). The case itself is still crafted from stainless steel and is still 44.25mm-wide. Omega says that they have changed the design of the sapphire crystals to shave off this bit of thickness. About how it actually wears and looks on the wrist just a bit later.

Another important update is how the 9300 caliber has been updated to the 9900 version. There’s plenty of boasting on both the front and back to help you figure out if this is the latest generation of Omega in-house movements: the dial says “Co-Axial Master Chronometer” on it while the rotor has “Omega Master Co-Axial 9900” written in red.

It is quite confusing since the exact same watch refers to two very similar things in two different ways: as it turns out, “Co-Axial Master Chronometer” and “Master Co-Axial” mean that this watch is a chronometer (as only COSC-certified watches can be called as such), and, as the text on the rotor explains, also METAS-certified tested in-house by Omega. More on the movement below. Beyond these updates, the racing dial returns once more – if I remember correctly, as a first for this larger Speedmaster – and with it also comes a new, perforated, sporty-looking strap.

Wearability

Time to take a closer look at these novel elements of the Omega Speedmaster Racing Master Chronometer replica and so let us begin with wearability. A day into wearing the watch and after adjusting the strap a few times, I realized that the Speedmaster Racing (with the strap set to offer a secure fit – which is how I prefer to wear watches) wears like loosely set, slim watches do.

The eye-trickery comes from the fact that the Speedmaster Racing has a very thin case profile – in the traditional sense, that is. The super long, nicely curved, polished edge runs from the end of the upper lug and doesn’t end until the other corner of the watch. For one, this angled, shiny, sweeping curve makes the watch appear longer and slimmer. Underneath it is the slender, vertical case profile that is brushed and hence darker, making it appear yet slimmer to the eye.

Now, the trick is in the fact that the case-back itself is just as thick as the case-band, but it is tucked away in a way that most of the time when the watch is on the wrist it cannot be seen at all. So, when you look at the watch on your wrist, it gives the illusion of a slim watch that sits a finger’s width above the wrist – this is possibly the best way to describe it.

Legibility

The racing dial has been around since 1968 and while I think it looks cool, I cannot agree with Omega when they say “it is generally accepted that this ‘Racing’ style was added to make the chronograph easier to read.” I mean, it may have been added with that goal in mind, but it didn’t quite work for me that way. This is the first racing dial Speedmaster that I got to wear for an extended period and so the first time when I could realize how difficult it is, for me at least, to read not only the chronograph seconds, but also the running time minutes with great accuracy in between the applied markers.

The problem that I have with the racing dial is that the funky minute/seconds track on the periphery of the main dial has its subsequent indices share the first and the last mark, so my eyes (or brain, rather) cannot tell where one minute ends and the other begins. I am ready to admit that it could be just a bad wiring in my brain, and if I really wanted to, I guess I could tell where each section ends and begins (at the longer marks) but, for some reason, the minute track just did not add up for me when I tried to read it at a glance.

This, controversially, doesn’t mean that I don’t like it. This, I think, is one of the coolest and most beautifully balanced dials Omega has done, thanks to a clever dosing of colors and a yet more ingenious choice in textures for the dial and hands. The double-tier seconds track pulls the entire dial closer together, making the 44.25mm watch look smaller and more balanced to the eye. Furthermore, it adds a sporty element that works really well against both the track of the tacyhmeter scale as well as the long, arrow-like, polished, applied hour indices.

The orange accents are an even more subjective design twist of the Omega Speedmaster Racing Master Chronometer watch replica, but these splashes of color are distributed in a very sensible and tasteful way. The running time’s indications are in orange, while the chronograph’s three hands are in white – makes sense. The orange tachymeter text of the bezel, the Speedmaster line, and the small orange pips by the hour markers create a sublimely balanced look. The crisp white Omega logo just jumps off the dial.

The date window is above the short, lumed block of the six o’clock hour marker. The shape, size, font style, and color combination render this one of the most sensibly and least obstructively done date windows – making this one of the very few occasions where I never once wished that it wasn’t there.

Overall legibility is great, the almost perfectly flat sapphire crystal has AR coating on both sides, while all the hands, thank goodness, are properly sized. Omega has also enlarged the 3 and 9 o’clock sub-dials a fair bit when compared to previous models so they finally look just right and are way more legible than they had been before.

Replica Omega Speedmaster Racing Master Chronometer 44.25mm Watch Review

Design

The case, as I said, remains 44.25mm-wide and is crafted from stainless steel. The bezel on the replica Speedmaster Racing Master Chronometer reference 329.32.44.51.01.001 is ceramic with a brushed Liquidmetal tachymeter scale and a spot of “Tachymètre” orange text to match the orange elements of the dial and strap. I’ll say I’m still not a fan of random French words on watches where every other bit of text is in English – or vice versa.

The box sapphire crystal extends about two millimeters above the plane of the flat bezel and after a gentle curve on its periphery, it is almost perfectly flat throughout. Omega added a very thoughtful element to the bezel by wrapping the ceramic into steel and by keeping the sapphire crystal low and closer to the inside. This step-like design and the softer steel frame of the bezel will keep your fragile (but extremely scratch resistant) ceramic bezel insert safe from impacts from the side. Ceramic is notoriously hard but, as a direct consequence, is also notoriously fragile, so this framed bezel not only looks good, but will also save you a several hundred dollar repair bill.

The polished edge that runs across the side adds a touch of refinement, rendering the replica Speedmaster Racing Master Chronometer an ideal fit for everyday office wear. It isn’t a funky-looking tool/racing watch that only aficionados will get – it’s an objectively versatile, modern, but restrained looking watch.

The Master Chronometer Caliber 9900

The Caliber 9900 (and 9901 with gold rotor and bridges in gold cased versions) is the latest and greatest Omega can do with a movement. It is an automatic chronograph equipped with a column wheel, a vertical clutch, two barrels, and a Co-Axial escapement with silicon parts and an operating frequency of 4Hz.

The 9900 movement looks stunning and – now priced under $8k – this is among the nicest looking movements at this price point. It is machine decorated, but done in a decent way: excessively detailed, reaching even difficult to see places like the plates deep under the balance wheel and finished off in a silver-purple-green hue that depends on lighting and that is rarely encountered elsewhere.

The vertical clutch means there are no coupling-decoupling chronograph wheels to elevate the show, but the curved striping on the icy silver looking rotor and plates still offer plenty of candy for the eye. Dark grey screws and intelligently placed, variously sized texts in red add a few splashes of color. For real nerds, the column wheel is on display neatly close to the large balance wheel, which in turn is hidden several levels into the movement. The Omega Caliber 9900 is one impressive movement.

Introducing the New A. Lange & Söhne Lange 1 Time Zone Replica With Caliber L141.1

Introducing the New A. Lange & Söhne Lange 1 Time Zone Replica With Caliber L141.1

From the day of its release on October 24, 1994, the Lange 1 is probably the best-known watch in the catalog of the Glashütte brand A. Lange & Söhne. And with good reason – the prototype large date display was the first in modern history, and dial layouts were rare at the time. Since then, the range and reputation of the collection has grown, with all Lange 1 watches using some iteration of the original caliber L901.0 movement, immediately recognizable thanks to its three-eighths German silver quarter plate. Last month, A. Lange & Söhne updated the collection’s travel watch for the third time since its initial release in 2005, the A. Lange & Söhne Lange 1 Time Zone watch replica, which will become the definitive Lange 1 with an updated version of the L901.0.

 

Introducing the New A. Lange & Söhne Lange 1 Time Zone Replica With Caliber L141.1

Details

The model I spent time with is the reference 136.029 replica in white gold case with black solid silver dial and rhodiumed gold hands. The other two new models are the reference 136.032 replica in pink gold with solid silver argenté dial and pink gold hands, and the 100-piece limited-edition reference 136.021 replica, which is done in yellow gold with solid silver champagne dial and yellow gold hands.

While the dial is changed and the movement is new, the case size remains untouched. Measuring 41.9mm-wide, 10.9mm-thick, and with a lug-to-lug height of 50mm, the Lange 1 Time Zone replica is sized for contemporary tastes. It’s not the thinnest manual-wind watch, but this is permissible considering the complexity and robustness of the L141.1 movement with its 448 components.

The Noticeable Change

The most immediately noticeable change is to the 24-hour display. Formerly, this was implemented in the new A. Lange & Söhne Lange 1 men’s watch replica through the relatively simple expedient of nestling two small sub-dials with pointers in the home time and time-zone dials. This works and was hardly a fatal flaw from a design standpoint (the original Lange 1 Time Zone is one of the most popular Lange 1 models), but in the interest of greater clarity, this is changed in the new model. Instead of separate dials, we now have, in the center of each of the main dials, a rotating disk divided across its diameter by a blue sector. These disks rotate once every 24 hours, and whenever the hour hand is over the blue sector, it’s PM for that time zone. A pusher at 8:00 adjusts the city ring in one-hour increments (as per the usual custom, there are 24 reference cities for each time zone with a full hour offset from GMT), and there’s a pusher at 10:00 to adjust the big date. The mechanism for advancing the city ring is a complex one as the pusher for incrementing the city ring has to advance the city ring, time zone hour hand, and day/night disk simultaneously; 67 components make up the entire corrector system.

Introducing the New A. Lange & Söhne Lange 1 Time Zone Replica With Caliber L141.1

Reached by Zoom (what else), Lange’s Director Of Product Development Anthony de Haas told us that the reason for an AM/PM indication in the larger of the two dials – which is the home time dial as the watch is usually set up – is owing to the fact that it’s possible to set the hour hand in the main time-zone dial independently. You do this by pulling the crown out to the second position and holding down the pusher for advancing the hour hand in the time-zone dial. Normally, when setting the time by the crown, the hour hands are synchronized along with the minute hands, but this maneuver decouples the hour hands and lets you use the larger of the two dials for local time, with the smaller dial on home time. If there’s no day/night indication in the (larger) home time dial, there is no way of knowing, if you decide to use it as a local time dial, whether or not the big date will switch correctly at midnight. Apparently, says de Haas, Lange realized this a bit late in the development of the original Lange 1 Time Zone, and it was something of a scramble to implement a second day/night indication in time for the deadline of the first release.

Another small but useful addition is a change in the pointer which indicates the time zone reference city. It still performs its basic function of showing the correct reference city for the time-zone dial, but it now includes a small window which shows you whether or not that city is one in which Daylight Saving Time/Summer Time is observed – red for DST and white if DST is not observed.

Introducing the New A. Lange & Söhne Lange 1 Time Zone Replica With Caliber L141.1

With the dial off and city ring removed (above), L141.1’s cadrature (that’s the term for under-the-dial work – it occurs to me that there must be a German equivalent which I ought to know, but don’t) is visible. You can see the two disks for the 24-hour indicators, as well as the paddle-shaped red and white indicator for DST or the lack thereof.

A natural question to ask is whether or not you could arrange things so that the time-zone indicator only shows red when DST is actually in effect in the city in question. de Haas says that while this is technically possible, it would be extremely complex. The dates for DST where it is observed vary from city to city, and so not only would the indication have to be controlled by a perpetual calendar, there would have to be a separate more or less ad hoc mechanical solution for each city. A big part of the challenge would be that calendrical complications are really exercises in encoding cyclical patterns – you can make a perpetual calendar partly because the Leap Year occurs with regularity, once every four years, and always at the transition from February to March.

Introducing the New A. Lange & Söhne Lange 1 Time Zone Replica With Caliber L141.1

Summer Time rules, on the other hand, follow no natural rhythm. They are set arbitrarily by different nations (on top of everything else, they are more or less six months apart in the Northern and Southern hemispheres) which makes the problem even harder. Such a watch, says de Haas, is technically feasible, but making it work reliably would be an enormous challenge, and it would make for a watch at least three times as expensive as the current A. Lange & Söhne Lange 1 Time Zone replica – and all that for a complication whose benefit would be difficult to see as justifying the greatly increased cost by potential clients. (I would love to see Lange do it, but then I love complexity for its own sake, which as far as evaluating complications is concerned, is a character flaw or at least a lapse in taste).

Conclusion

The watch is easy to understand, even easy to use, and intuitive to operate. You get all the usual A. Lange & Söhne replica very high quality fit, finish and overall exceptional aesthetics (front and back) that continue to make the Lange 1 time zone really sweetens the deal. Prices, $52,900 for the white and pink gold models; $56,100 for the yellow gold limited edition.
