Being A High Quality Fake Omega Watches Mono-Brand Collector Isn’t A Sin

I’ve been a hoarder/collector all my life. As a kid, I collected comic books, resulting in boxes full of them that still need to join me every time I move houses. With comics, it was very straightforward. I just collected (all) the albums of my favorite series. Although I know of some collectors who collect all series of a certain brand, this is not a very common to approach 1:1 US Omega replica watches collecting.

That first Speedmaster I bought in 1999

When I got my first perfect fake Omega Speedmaster Professional watches in 1999, I thought that was it (and it could have been). But along the way, I started to buy more of them, and before I knew it, I had a collection. But before I did so, I just bought the watches I liked and wanted.

Collecting Speedmasters in the 1990s and 2000s

Acquiring my first Speedmaster was an isolated journey. It was simply a matter of buying the right model for the right amount of money and making sure everything was OK according to the information available back in the ’90s. However, as I became more serious about collecting Speedmasters, I made it a point to do a lot of research. Especially when going vintage, there’s homework to be done. I always try to go for original luxury replica Omega watches with the original parts. With Speedmasters, I try to get a reference for the Moonwatch from every period. Not every iteration, as that would be a bit too much, but I have my share of iterations of the regular Speedmaster.

Building up a collection was a slow process

Building up my collection took a long time, and I bought and traded many pieces until I was satisfied with what I had. Since I started at a relatively young age (my early 20s) with little money, a lot of “trading up” took place. What helped was the era of collecting. In the late ’90s and early ’00s, the prices were much friendlier than today’s market prices, not only for Rolex but for all brands. And when going after certain Speedmasters, I was also lucky to get help from people like the legendary Chuck Maddox, who said, “Chronographs, like most finer things in life, only improve with time.”

Besides Swiss made Omega Speedmaster copy watches and a focus on the Moonwatch models, I also collect Omega Constellation watches. I recently added my “grail” model, the first Constellation reference from 1952 with the bumper automatic caliber 352 inside (I wrote about it here). But searching and buying a full-set Omega Constellation “Manhattan” from 1982 brought me just as much joy, to be honest.

Although I have and have had watches by many different brands from Swatch to Audemars Piguet, I consider myself a mono-brand collector. The cheap replica Omega Speedmaster and Constellation collection watches I have somehow make me feel “in control” of purchases. If I collected pilot’s watches, dive watches, or whatever style from all sorts of brands, it would require me to study all these different brands, stories, movements, etc. It would also make me feel obligated to connect with all these brands and visit different brand forums/resources. I don’t have to go in-depth for the watches I will just wear, like those from Rolex, Grand Seiko, Tissot, or whatever brand.

Being a mono-brand collector doesn’t mean I don’t care for other brands or don’t see the charm of other brands. I just don’t have the time and resources to also get myself into other watches from other brands. I would love to have some Dirty Dozen watches, vintage Grand Seikos, or some vintage Longines Conquests, for example, but it’s just not feasible for me now.

My golden rules for collecting

Over time, I made some (big) mistakes. Buying the wrong watches, bidding on fake parts, paying too much for things… Been there, done that. It’s all part of the process, and you pay a “learning” fee. I have developed a set of golden rules for collecting top Omega fake watches, which I am happy to share with you. They might be open doors to you, but sometimes you need to kick them in anyway.

Always buy the best you can afford, even if that is not the exact reference you want. This applies to Speedmasters but can also apply to any other watch that has been in production for a while. If I have X budget, I would rather buy the best replica Omega Speedmaster Professional 145.012 or 105.012 watches for that sum than spend it on a 105.003 that is in mediocre or at least questionable condition. That said, if the 105.003 is your grail, keep on saving up.

Don’t worry about boxes and papers with vintage 1:1 Omega super clone watches. The condition of the watch counts, not the cardboard box or some papers that came with it. They’re nice to have, but the focus should be on the watch itself. If you can choose between a full set in so-so condition, but the same amount allows you to buy the watch only in mint condition, go with the latter. However, if it concerns a modern watch, especially a limited edition, always go for a full set.

Reaching out

Reach out to the brand if you have questions or need parts. Yes, there are a lot of parts being offered on eBay and Chrono24. But often, if you reach out to a brand, you will find that they are more than willing to help you. Reaching out to a brand, especially if it has a vintage department, often also gives you an insight into the story behind a certain watch or reference. Remember, most of the guys working there are just as passionate about AAA replica Omega watches as you are. And they’re happy to talk to you. Often, they can also debunk some “facts” that are posted in Facebook groups and forums.

Go to watch fairs. I’ve visited many watch fairs, where I also have bought several fake Omega watches for sale. It requires you to do some homework in advance, as looking things up on the spot is a bit stressful, I find. Prices are often friendlier than online, but you need to know what you’re looking for and keep an eye on all the details that matter to you. Talk to the sellers and other collectors, and you’ll learn more about the watches you’re after. It might also expose you to different watches that you never considered before. I remember seeing those Heuer Daytonas (that’s right) with brownish dials, and I still can’t get them out of my head (although prices have gone up tremendously since I first spotted them).

Set yourself up for success

As mentioned a few times already, do your homework. Even after all these years, I don’t dare to buy certain watches blindly if I’m not very familiar with them. Learning from forums, books, websites like this, and other sites will help make you a more confident buyer. Don’t be afraid to ask questions, also to the seller of the watch. He or she will see that you have a genuine interest. Being confident and patient will reduce the likelihood of making expensive mistakes.

Last but not least, find yourself a good watchmaker that you can trust. The good thing about collecting (vintage) Speedmasters is that Omega has a very good workshop in Biel for these Omega replica watches shop site. They respect the originality of a watch and do not replace parts when you indicate this. It is a real bonus that Omega (some other brands also have pretty good vintage departments) can support vintage collectors with service and repair. It’s one thing that holds me back from collecting (vintage) watches from brands that have ceased to exist. Servicing a generic movement will not be an issue, but replacing brand-specific parts might be.

Priorities, priorities

A collection is never complete, whether it’s because there’s a financial limitation or because there are still new watches that you want to add. I am pretty sure I will never buy a vintage Speedmaster CK2915. Even if I had the financial resources, it would be too much money for me to put into one watch. Luckily, there are so many Swiss movements fake Omega Speedmaster watches out there. There’s always something on the wish list that I can add to the collection, be it a relatively cheap Speedmaster Split-Seconds from the early 2000s or another vintage Speedmaster from the 1970s. It’s a matter of prioritizing what you can and want to spend on it. As for my Constellations, although I have a few of nearly every decade, I would love a nice pie-pan model, preferably in gold.

Never underestimate the power of a story

Let me end this article by saying that it’s not always about the watch itself. It can also be very much about the story behind a watch that makes it so attractive to buy or collect. One of my China Omega Speedmaster replica watches, the X-33, was one of the first to be produced. It was presented to an astronaut during the official introduction of the Speedmaster X-33 to the market. He was my childhood hero; every kid watched him on television, going into space with the Space Shuttle. It’s truly an honor that I had the opportunity to buy his watch from his family after he passed away. They contacted me and gave me the chance to buy the watch from them. I did not chase them for it. It’s a valuable watch to me, despite “just” being a quartz iteration of the Speedmaster to others.

Swiss Best Replica Omega Speedmaster Watches Online

My friends, sometimes it’s OK to treat yourself. Hard work deserves a reward and, if you’ve got the cash and the itch, then maybe it’s time for a little functional Omega replica watches for sale.

1967 Replica Omega Speedmaster ‘Ed White’ Ref. 105.003-65 Watches With Pulsations Bezel

Among the large repertoire of designs in the history of US luxury fake Omega Speedmaster watches, the “Ed White” is a standout because it has the best combination of vintage Speedmaster elements. The nickname comes from the American astronaut Edward Higgins White II, who, in 1965, was the first American astronaut to complete extra-vehicular activity wearing this reference on a long velcro strap around his spacesuit.

First off, it’s not noticeable at first, but if you look at the 1:1 cheap Omega replica watches closely, it has very strong, straight lugs instead of the more widely known twisted lyre lugs, which appeared a few years later. It’s one of those differences people know to appreciate if they know about vintage Speedmasters. It also has the applied Omega logo with the caliber 321 movement, compared to the printed Omega logo with the caliber 861 movement in the later models. It’s simply a sharp-looking watch, inside and out.

The part that will throw most people off is the Pulsations bezel. It’s a rare bezel variant that was offered as an option to the buyers at the time. Though the Swiss movements Omega Speedmaster copy watches have long been associated with US space missions, the French text, “Gradué pour 15 pulsations,” sort of gives a Swiss nod to this watch. I like the international feel and how the bezel is very purpose-driven at the same time. I’d say you can never go wrong with a Speedmaster, and I’m always tempted when I see one. That sense of self-satisfaction at having something subtly different, something which most people won’t recognize, is what I live for, and this high quality replica Omega watches checks that box for me.

Fake Omega Speedmaster Moonwatches Professional

What’s higher than Everest? Orbit, my friends, and the stars beyond. While not the first perfect Omega replica watches in space, the forerunner of this Omega was the first timepiece to pass NASA’s rigorous torture testing for its fledgling moonshot. Neil Armstrong, Michael Collins, and Buzz Aldrin each wore top Omega Speedmaster super clone watches ($6,400) on the Apollo 11 flight, cementing the watch’s place in history.

The chronometer function and outer tachymeter remain the same, and the mechanical movement is as robust now as it was then. And if you find yourself headed to outer space, don’t let its middling 50m of water resistance worry you — most of the liquid up there is frozen.

And unlike its fellows listed above, the China Omega Speedmaster fake watches has a slightly more attainable, nearly as interesting family of approved homage pieces. The MoonSwatch lineup features affordable quartz movements with a wide range of multicolored designs.

2022 Swiss Made Omega Speedmaster ’57 Fake Watches

July is always a special month for Speedmaster enthusiasts, as it happens to mark the anniversary of the moon landing. That glorious event in the 20th century also happened to be the greatest advertisement for a watch’s precision and robustness in history. Ever since then, the AAA luxury replica Omega Speedmaster watches, once a staple at racetracks and one of the world’s most well-known chronographs, was permanently associated with outer space. It had the sole distinction of being the only watch ever to go on the moon and continue to tick away ad infinitum, without so much as skipping a beat.

Of course, you’re familiar with the history of the Moonwatch so there’s no need to go into that. Suffice it to say that high quality Omega fake watches has milked the moon landing for years and will continue to use it, at least until the Speedy makes it to Mars. And because there are no immediate plans to do that, we get a fresh take on the perfect Omega Speedmaster replica watches every year, with the latest Speedmaster ‘57 being the freshest of the lot. Now, Omega launches plenty of tribute Speedies, vintage re-issues and it can be pretty hard to pick the right one.

Asking a Speedy enthusiast which best Omega Speedmaster copy watches they wish to pick is like asking Buzz Aldrin who he feels an urge to punch harder – moon landing deniers or flat earthers? The correct answer is “all of them”. But if there’s one Speedmaster you should buy this year, it’s got to be the 57, because it kicks off an all-new collection. Not only does it celebrate the 53rd anniversary of the moonwatch, but it also commemorates the 65th anniversary of the Swiss movements replica Omega Speedmaster watches– arguably the coolest chronograph the world has seen.

The new collection is very different from the 57 Trilogy launched in 2017. For starters, it’s a METAS Certified master chronometer, which means it represents the absolute zenith of chronological precision, at least in Omega-land. Not only does 1:1 wholesale Omega super clone watches’ Calibre 9906 boast exceptional precision, but it’s also much thinner than other commonly-found Omega movements. In fact, it’s much thinner (6.4mm) than most standard Swiss chronographs on the market. This allows it to fit inside a 40.5mm case, making it the smallest Master Chronograph-certified Speedmaster ever. That may not be the greatest technical achievement, but current sartorial trends favour more manageable and gender-neutral case sizes, adding a layer of versatility to a watch that’s already dripping with appeal.

On a personal level, the appeal lies in the top Omega replica watches’ styling, which has been inspired by the original Speedmaster CK2915-1, which broke a world record by being auctioned at $3.4 million USD last year (Rs 27.14 crore). Except it features a slightly more prominent stainless steel bezel giving it a stronger tool-watch vibe. Then there are all the rich dial colours available, which, once again, is a personal highlight. The black dial has a grainy texture giving the fake Omega watches for sale a lived-in quality, but it’s the shades of sub-brushed blue, green and burgundy that really stay with you, long after you’ve taken eyes off them – a Herculean feat if you ask me.

If you, like most mortals, don’t have millions to splurge on a vintage 2915, the new 57 is your best bet to capture a bit of history, along with having some top-shelf Swiss tech occupy the real estate on your wrists.

On the Wrist: Luxury Replica Omega Updates The Speedmaster ’57 And Moonwatches

From defying gravity to thriving against the effects of ageing, the AAA US Omega Speedmaster replica watches is trimmer, fitter and more sophisticated than ever on the 65th anniversary of its debut. Check out the watchmakers’ exciting updates to its Speedmaster ’57 and Moonwatch below.

In the momentous year of 1957, having made a name for itself in sports timekeeping with proven precision and know-how, best Omega fake watches reinforced its position as a consummate tool watchmaker with the introduction of the Professional collection consisting of three timepieces that would go on to become legends in their own rights.

They included the Seamaster 300, which ushered in a new era of underwater discovery; the Railmaster, the first commercially available perfect replica Omega watches capable of withstanding the influence of magnetism more than 1,000 gauss; and last, but by no means least, the Speedmaster, a chronograph whose evolution has unfolded in the most extraordinary way.

Although originally designed for motor racing, the cheap Omega Speedmaster copy watches was destined to fly, becoming the first watch worn in space and on the moon, hence the nickname Moonwatch, and a part of all six NASA lunar missions, including that historic time it played a vital role in the safe return of the Apollo 13 crew members.

In addition to pioneering space exploration with NASA, the Swiss made Omega Speedmaster replica watches has continuously expanded into various series of dedicated timepieces, including the Moonwatch, anniversary series, ‘Dark Side of the Moon’, and so on, in perpetual adoration of the cosmos, as Da Vinci once said, “Once you have tasted flight, you will forever walk the earth with your eyes turned skyward, for there you have been, and there you will always long to return.”

In 2022, Omega updated the top super clone Omega Speedmaster ’57 watches to modern times with a slimmer, sleeker profile, and a more powerful performance to appeal to a new generation of Speedy fans. The new collection consists of eight new stainless-steel models, all powered by the Omega Co-Axial Master Chronometer Calibre 9906.

The use of a manual-winding movement allows for a thinner case and finer bezel, giving the new 1:1 wholesale replica Omega Speedmaster ’57 watches a streamlined look. There’s a “sandwich” black dial edition with recessed hour markers filled with vintage Super-LumiNova – and three releases with PVD dials, in blue, green and a new varnished burgundy.  The entire collection is presented with stainless-steel bracelets, or matching coloured leather straps.

At just 12.99 mm, the new ’57 is considerably slimmer than its cousin the 2022 fake Omega Speedmaster Moonwatches 3861 at 13.58 mm. Of course, there is always a nod to space history on a Speedmaster. The bracelet on the steel version is inspired by the Apollo 11 tribute launched in 2019, and equipped with Omega’s patented comfort release adjustment system.

Moonshine Revelries

When it comes to case materials, fans of the Moonwatch are already spoiled for choice, with current collection models in steel, Sedna Gold and Canopus Gold. In 2022, China replica Omega watches takes lunar inspiration to the next level with two new models in Moonshine Gold. One with Moonshine Gold dial, black ceramic bezel ring and blackened subdials and indexes.

Another with a PVD green coated dial and a green ceramic bezel ring. To offer aficionados even greater choice, Omega even offers two ways to fix their Moonshine Gold high quality fake Omega Moonwatches to the wrist: a matching bracelet in 18k Moonshine Gold, or integrated black rubber strap with textured motifs resembling the moon’s surface on the back and Moonshine Gold clasp. Powering all new models is the Co-Axial Master Chronometer Calibre 3861.

Created in 2019, Moonshine Gold is an 18k yellow gold alloy, inspired by the shining moonlight in a dark blue sky. It offers a distinctive paler hue than traditional 18k yellow gold and high resistance to the fading of colour and lustre over time.

A Question From A Reader: “Which Modern AAA Perfect Fake Omega Speedmaster Watches Is Closest To The Original Moonwatch?”

One of the Fratello readers asked us the following question: Which modern luxury Omega Speedmaster replica watches is closest to the original Moonwatch?

We do get this question quite often indeed, so today, we’ll share our answer (or opinion, as you wish). The number of different Speedmaster models in the current Omega collection can be a bit confusing for people. The Moonwatch is, by definition, a hand-wound watch, but not all hand-wound Swiss made fake Omega Speedmaster watches are considered Moonwatches. Think of the now-discontinued First Omega in Space, which is based on the original CK2998 reference (1957 to 1962). It is not really a direct descendant of the Moonwatch.

Replica Omega Speedmaster Professional Moonwatches

The three references that made it to the Moon are the Speedmaster 105.003 and the Speedmaster Professional 105.012 and 145.012. These references were delivered to NASA after the qualification in 1965. Throughout the rest of the decade, Omega sent these best Omega replica watches to NASA and engraved them with their own serial number (SEB) like every other piece of equipment. Thus, you could say that the original Moonwatch is a 105.003, 105.012, or 145.012. The Speedmaster 105.003 and Speedmaster Professional 105.012 and 145.012 have become very sought-after in recent years, and there is no end to the demand in sight. The well of caliber-321-powered Speedmasters is drying up. The re-introduction of the Speedmaster Calibre 321 probably didn’t help either, as a vintage Speedmaster Professional 105.012 and 145.012 sell/sold for prices well below that of the new Calibre 321 model.

References 105.003, 105.012, and 145.012 are the ones to get if the top fake Omega Moonwatches heritage is very important to you. However, if we take into account that Omega never took the Speedmaster (Professional) out of production, we can easily determine which reference today would be the descendent of the original Moonwatch.

Reference 145.022 to 145.022

After the 145.012, in 1968, came the 145.022, which Omega produced until 1982. The 145.022 also saw several updates or changes, hence the -68/69/71/74/76/78 indicators after 145.022. Though Omega continued making the 145.022-78 until 1982, the brand had already introduced a new reference in 1981. That cheap Omega super clone watches carried the reference 145.0022 (contrary to what some people think, this is not a service-case number, as it was with the 145.0012).

A new coding system for the fake Omega Speedmaster Professional Moonwatches reference numbers

The 145.0022 was replaced by the Speedmaster reference 3590.50 in 1988. That same year, Omega started using a new coding system called PIC (Product Identity Code) for its reference numbers. The 3590.50 was replaced by the 3570.50 in 1996, and that Omega replica watches for sale was produced until 2014. That year, Omega introduced a new “full set” Speedmaster Professional Moonwatch that came with a huge presentation box, a loupe, two extra straps, and a tool to change them. This Speedmaster model has the reference number 311.30.42.30.01.005.

2021: A new Omega Speedmaster Professional Moonwatch

Since early 2021, Omega has had new Swiss movements fake Omega Speedmaster Professional Moonwatches (reference 310.30.42.50.01.001) with a number of changes and upgrades. For starters, the movement has changed to Omega’s caliber 3861. This movement is partially based on the previous 1861 but consists of 50% new parts that are non-interchangeable. This new caliber is certified as a Master Chronometer by METAS and features Omega’s Co-Axial escapement. Omega gave this model a different bracelet with a proper taper from 20mm to 15mm. This model also features the beloved dot-over-90 bezel, marking its return to the standard Moonwatch. The case design is different from the previous reference and is similar to the one used for the fourth generation Speedmaster, the 105.012. This Moonwatch case shape had also been used for the Apollo XI 50th anniversary models from 2019 and the Silver Snoopy Award 50th Anniversary from the current catalog.

On the dial, you’ll find the famous “step”, as well as the chronograph second hand with a teardrop-shaped base. The version with a Hesalite crystal has a printed Omega logo on the dial and a closed steel case back with engraving. The sapphire-crystal version comes with a sapphire case back as well to display the Omega caliber 3861. All details and a comparison between the current 2022 replica Omega Speedmaster Professional Moonwatches and the previous reference can be found here.

Is the Calibre 321 a Moonwatch?

And last but not least, there’s the Omega Speedmaster Calibre 321 reference 311.30.40.30.01.001. This AAA wholesale fake watches was introduced in 2020 and is part of the regular collection. It’s a remake of the 105.003, using Gene Cernan’s Speedmaster that he wore during Apollo 17 as a blueprint. However, it does have a ceramic bezel and a sapphire crystal. The case, dial, and caliber 321 are very close to the original 105.003 though, as is the flat-link bracelet. You can consider this model a Moonwatch as well.

In the end, the 105.003, 105.012, and 145.012 were used for the Apollo missions, and the 145.022 was qualified in 1978 for the Space Shuttle missions (we’ve found one here, and as a matter of fact, it was the inspiration for the first Speedy Tuesday limited edition). But rest assured that the current Speedmaster Professional and its predecessors are considered official Moonwatch models as well.

Perhaps the only advice I can give you is to start with a new(er) reference. And if you happen to like it that much, begin your quest for a nice vintage model and use the modern one for daily wear. The high quality copy Omega Speedmaster Professional Moonwatches reference 310.30.42.50.01.001 retails for €6,700 (including sales tax).
