Watches & Pencils #7 - Omega Darth Vader (ST 145.0023)Today Watches & Pencils enters into hyperspace. Let's discuss the helmet shaped big boy (44mm x 51mm, 15mm thickness) through the 1970s with regard number ST 145.0023, a.k.a. Darth Vader replica rolex . Chuck Maddox came program this fantastic nickname. Scratch-resistant and lightsaber-proof with a glossy Jet Black finished tungsten metal jacket and furnished with crimson sub-dials it beats several replica watches in look. Should you use your imagination you may even match/blend it with the typical helmet with the lord himself:Omega Seamaster "Darth Vader" (ST 145.0023) with aftermarket leather racing strap.Two layersJust like Darth Vader, this watch also wears a 'suit': it is build from two separate layers. The interior layer ('body') could be the core octagonal casing which protects the movement against (magnetic) forces. The surface ('suit' or 'harness') is put on the surface of this and supports the black tungsten coating.Spot the black tungsten layer into the stainless case.Hidden lugsWith the hidden lugs 'the head' with the Omega Darth Vader almost seamlessly morphs in the strap. In case you watch the back you will see the lugs. Although a major watch (specifically the 1970's) I'm quite believing that it's going to fit most average wrists due to the slightly curved lugs plus the nice tonneau shaped case.The lugs are just visible within the back in the watch.The heartThe body on the Omega Darth Vader is driven using a 861 manually wound movement (17 jewels, 21600 bph). To be sure shock protection the movement sits in a very separate container, locked by two o'rings. This will be the movement that also beats in Omega Speedmaster Moonreplica watches through the same time frame. Typical chronograph functions here: 12 hour and Half hour registration as well as a tachymeter. A true proven and reliable movement omega wristwatch .DialThe outer tachymeter-ring and raised indices make a nice depth on the dial and also the fresh orange and deep red accents make details and hands pop out. I definitely think this may be Darth Vaders favorite choice and 'daily beater'.Close-up in the dial. Some elements are a bit faded, but the color combination and balance is still spot on.Wet suitThe only thing I can't complement 'Darth Vader' would be the Omega collection in which this epic watch is released: 'Seamaster'!? Or do you've ever seen Darth Vader as or possibly a swim? The watch is water resistant to 60 meters though.Ultimate 'evil' versionFor me among the only cons on this Omega Darth Vader is the fact the crown and pushers are not black, however guess it turned out reliant on money or technique inside the seventies when this watch had been produced. In this particular variant I think it might have connected the crown and pushers better to the casing. It's purely esthetical though and it does make the functional operators less visible/optimal.The not so evil counterpartGood to bring up that there are also another variant of the Omega, a.k.a. 'Anakin Skywalker' ('Darth Vader' before he joins the negative side of 'The Force'). Many experts have reviewed in older times here on Fratelloreplica watches (go to the article regarding the 'Anakin Skywalker' variant). Simply because this variant won't have the black finishing, it is really and feels less dark or evil: Both variants of ST 145.0023. Left: Darth Vader. Right: Anakin SkywalkerOmega Darth Vader: highly collectibleNowadays these people are usually hunted by collectors, astray, also because of their cool nicknames. Since they will be rare (the 'Anakin'-variant is less rare) prices with this stunners may be high (and climbing ?.
