Back in March, we have written about a watch that we dubbed the most affordable AAA Omega replica watches ever. Of course, it is not really a pure Omega release but that did not stop the pandemonium that took place at the Swatch Pavilion KL as throngs of eager fans camped overnight to get their hands on the Swatch x Omega MoonSwatch collection.
Made in collaboration with Swatch, the MoonSwatch is based on the iconic best US fake Omega Speedmaster Moonwatches chronograph. Available in 11 colourways with each of them chosen to represent the planetary bodies within the Solar System, the watch carries a price tag of RM 1,065 per piece.
Some may deem the price tag as hefty but consider this: the actual cheap replica Omega Speedmaster Moonwatches Professional currently costs RM 25,750 according to Omega Malaysia’s official website. That’s around 24 times the price of the Swiss made super clone Omega MoonSwatch watches!
Originally available only at Swatch Pavilion KL, we noticed sometime in June that the company changed the retail location list for the 1:1 copy Omega MoonSwatch collection watches to the branch in Mid Valley Megamall KL. A visit to the Swatch’s website a few days ago, Pavilion is back on the list together with another branch just across the road at Fahrenheit 88.
Despite having more stores selling the perfect replica Omega MoonSwatch collection watches, this does not mean there are more stocks available to consumers even though Swatch has early on said that it is not a limited edition release. Based on our conversation with the staff at the Mid Valley KL branch, it seemed that stocks remained scarce and they would sell out as soon as they arrived at the store.
