Speedy Tuesday - The growth from the Omega Speedmaster ReducedIn older times, I wrote an assessment article between Omega Speedmaster Professional and the so-called Omega Speedmaster Reduced (officially it absolutely was just called Speedmaster Automatic). I've remarked that over the last year or so, a persons vision from the Omega Speedmaster Reduced increased a great deal. Actually, when I retrieved everything for the involvement in Omega Speedmaster replica watches over 2015 on Chrono24, the classifieds offering the reference 3510/3810 (Omega Speedmaster Reduced and its Schumacher editions) on the market received over 270.000 unique visits.Once i just started collecting (and focussing on Speedmasters) within the mid-1990s, the Speedmaster Reduced was considered the kid-brother in the Moonwatch by many people enthusiasts and collectors, including me. In the event you were interested in buying a Speedmaster, you picked the Speedmaster Professional Moonwatch. However, some individuals didn't fancy such a large watch (42mm rather than 39mm from the Speedmaster Reduced) but probably more significant: the Speedmaster Reduced had a mechanical movement watches .Omega Speedmaster Reduced vs Speedmaster ProfessionalPowered by caliber 1140, the Omega Speedmaster Reduced didn't need any manual winding every other two days just like the 'Moonwatch'. Caliber 1140, according to ETA's 2890-A2 (the no-date sort of the famous 2892-A2, also referred to as Omega cal.1120) had a chronograph module combined with it. This module originated by Dubois-Depraz and was inside books as caliber 2020 (perhaps it still is). In the event you consider the specifications on the Speedmaster Reduced, so as to the movement has 46 jewels. That's quite a bit but could be explained as a result of utilization of a piggy back movement (add-on module). Afterwards, Omega changed the caliber from 1140 to 3220. Right after what this update actually was about, however it may have been a smaller change within the base movement or add-on module.1990 Speedmaster Reduced. Image (c) by http ://thirtyfivemill.comIt is incredibly an easy task to identify most replica watches with an add-on module chronograph (or piggy back movement). Consider the side from the watch, in which the pushers and crown can be found. You will see that you will find there's mis-alignment relating to the horizontal position on the pushers along with the crown. The pushers are situated a little greater than the crown, because the chronograph module is on the base movement. It's not at all bad though, and that i have never been aware of any real difficulties with the Speedmaster Reduced in all honesty. Other brands, even a high-end brand like Audemars Piguet, also makes use of this add-on module strategy for a few Royal Oak Offshore chronographs.The Speedmaster Reduced was introduced in 1988 by Omega, with clear design influences from the hand-wound Moonwatch. Later on, in 1991, also Date versions were travelling to the Speedmaster Reduced. Other models, much like the Speedmaster Classic with Moon phase (reference 3130.20) from 1990, the Speedmaster Perpetual Calendar from 1991 (we wrote this one here), the 1993 Day-Date or 1996 Day-Date Mk40 models etc are typical likely to be descendants in the 1988 Speedmaster Reduced 3510.50 (or 3810.50 for the version over a leather strap).Omega Speedmaster Reduced 3310.20.00 mens rolex presidential . Image by WatchFinderThe above bi-color model (reference 3310.20) dates from the early 1990s and it is - form configuration of dial and bi-color - identical to the 3510.50 references. This model can be found here, at WatchFinder.Once the Speedmaster Automatic models with Co-Axial movements (just like the Broad Arrow with 330x movement) came to the block, the Speedmaster Reduced was quickly phased out.Like I wrote in the beginning as soon as i've, the Speedmaster Reduced has become widely used in recent times. Perhaps still mainly because that people don't fancy a 42mm watch constantly or can't stand the concept of having to wind your watch manually, but times that you may pick one up for a couple hundred Euro are gone. Reference 3510.50 models after 2000 do fetch just under 2000 Euro. You will discover them starting around 1200 Euro, nevertheless these are often mid-1990s models rather than always while using box and papers still there. Special versions that has a panda dial, all-white dial (reference 3810.20) or the Japan special reference 3510.82 with blue dial by way of example (here) might fetch more. However, you can certainly still see as relevant examples for relatively low money. An interesting the first is this white dial Speedmaster from 1991 with silver sub dials. Just Over time Watches in Italy has this place available for 1490 Euro (click the link).Speedmaster Reduced reference 175.003 from JustinTime.itIs the Speedmaster Reduced worth collecting? I would not foresee why these small automatic models will end up as collectible because the Speedmaster Professional 'Moonwatch', however with the ever-increasing prices on those (especially vintage models), there may be a time men and women will commence looking for cheaper alternatives. Not specifically collectors perhaps rolex san francisco , but individuals who aim for a Speedmaster for their daily companion. Versions just like the Schumacher Racing models or perhaps the model pictured above might be sought-after with time. Before this, you ought to be able to purchase them to get a affordable price.Thanks to Thirtyfivemill.com for your picture of the black dial Reduced. replica breitling watch values
