Onwards into the perfect fake Omega Speedmaster’s adventures beyond Earth’s atmosphere, one of the most distinctive Speedmaster special editions is the Alaska Project from 2008. The watch has its roots deep in the 1960s, based on original prototypes tested by NASA for space missions, through an official program code named – you guessed it – “Alaska”, named so to throw any suspecting spies off the scent. The prototypes were developed with special inner and outer cases, designed to withstand the extreme temperature changes in space that craft and its occupants can endure as they rotate in and out of view from the sun’s powerful rays, ranging from -148C to 260C. The most prominent feature of the prototype was the large outer insulating case, protecting the Swiss made replica Omega from these extremities, and the dial, coated in zinc oxide to dissipate solar rays, and providing that bright white look.
In 2008, luxury replica Omega revived the design to commemorate their involvement in the project, producing a run of 1,970 pieces of an updated reference. The watch itself is classic Speedmaster, with a black tachymeter bezel, twisted lugs and hesalite crystal, however some major touches stand out, such as the bright white dial, spacecraft subdial hands, bespoke velcro strap, and of course, the huge red anodized aluminium outer shell. Don’t worry, though, this is removable so you can happily enjoy the watch without looking like you’re preparing for a mission to outer space. One of the most collectable cheap fake Omega Speedmasters around, the Alaska Project now sells for more than A$30,000 as a full set, and with so few in circulation, it’s fairly certain that these will continue to appreciate over time. I’d be remiss not to mention the MoonSwatch Mission to Mars, as it’s an homage to the aaa quality super clone Omega Alaska Project, featuring a red and white colour scheme, and even spacecraft subdial hands to finish off the look.
Speedy Tuesday “Ultraman” ref. 318.104.22.168.01.001
During the 2010s, the rise of the hashtag was sharp, and in watches no hashtag has had as much as an impact as #SpeedyTuesday – originally coined by Robert-Jan Broer, founder of Fratello Watches. The Speedmaster community fully embraced the habit, with it becoming legendary in Speedmaster lore, so much so in fact, that high quality replica Omega joined in on the fun.
One of the #SpeedyTuesday special editions that stands out significantly is the Ultraman from 2018, a fitting tribute to Return of Ultraman, a Japanese TV Show, which featured an aaa quality fake Omega Speedmaster as part of its monster-fighting kit. The watch featured a unique dial and orange hand, details which were carried over to this special edition. The watch is a Speedmaster in every way, with fitting orange details on the dial, orange trimmed NATO strap, and even including a hidden image of Ultraman himself, only visible under ultraviolet light. Omega super clone for sale, never afraid to make a unique box, took things one step further with the packaging too, creating a hexagonal case, a tribute to the futuristic settings used in the TV show, containing a bespoke leather strap and UV torch for revealing the hero on the dial. Today, the Swiss movement fake Omega Ultraman is a rare piece, trading for over A$20,000, and only 2,012 ever made.
