Will Ferrell Struck The Perfect Pose With Vintage UK Luxury Fake Omega Speedmaster Watches Online

Somewhere along the way, a stylist either instructed Will Ferrell to show off his perfect replica watches during photocalls—whereupon the veteran American funnyman took said instruction to the logical extreme—or he simply viewed the subtlety with which other celebrities were posing as a cop-out and thrust out his watch arm front-and-center for all to see. The irony here is that Ferrell isn’t, to our knowledge, a brand ambassador for any particular watch brand, and thus lacks the contractual obligation to strike a horological pose in the first place.

This, in turn, means that we’ve seen the guy pose with all sorts of UK AAA fake watches, from oddball Timex collabs to pink Oris pilot’s watches to the Seamaster from No Time To Die. Nowadays, he’s this writer’s favorite celebrity watch-wearer. While others may boast more horologically mind-blowing collections, Ferrell owns and wears a wide variety of cheap copy watches, and his pose-striking generally makes ID-ing a cinch. His irreverence during photocalls is in keeping with the Frat Pack ethos, thus maintaining my conviction that this man is one of the funniest of his generation.

This week’s Ferrell moment will surely rank among the favorites of die-hard watch nerds, as it saw him posing with an all-time classic: the hand-wound high quality replica Omega Speedmaster Professional watches. Dressed in an Adidas tracksuit and a pair of aviators at the Despicable Me 4 premiere, Ferrell threw up his right wrist, supported it dutifully with his left, and peeled back his sleeve enough to reveal a strap-worn version of the Speedy, which appears to be a vintage reference 145.022. While most wear their Speedies on bracelets, Ferrell opted for what looks like a black leather strap, giving it more of a vintage tool watch vibe. (If nothing else, it gelled excellently with the tracksuit and the shades.)

The Omega Speedmaster Professional is most famous as the Swiss made fake watches that landed on the moon. (Really—it was strapped outside Buzz Aldrin’s spacesuit on that fateful day in 1969.) But the Speedy was actually born as a racing chronograph in 1957. In the 1960s, NASA went through trials to select an appropriate watch for its budding space program, and the Speedy made the cut. It was worn by numerous astronauts on space walks and on all six lunar landings. And while there have been innumerable subtle tweaks to the design over the years, all Moonwatches share several readily identifiable features: A steel case, black dial (for the most part), triple-register chronograph, hand-wound movement, pump pushers, and an outer tachymeter bezel all among them.

Finding a Speedy on Ferrell’s wrist is pure joy. His wide-ranging taste and clear affinity for timepieces is fun viewing for us top super clone watches geeks, and the man clearly has a good time posing for the camera. I’m just waiting for him to pose with a Patek perpetual calendar while dressed as Ron Burgundy. Then I can retire.

Jake Gyllenhaal’s Santos de Cartier Replica Watches

Rocking up to the Tribeca Film Festival premiere of Presumed Innocent, Jake Gyllenhaal sported a Santos de Cartier large model in steel. The Santos de Cartier replica watches for sale, based upon a watch designed by the maison for Brazilian aviator Alberto Santos-Dumont in the early 20th century, was among the world’s first dedicated pilot’s watches—though you might not know it from the design’s elegant case and dial. Gyllenhaal’s large version features an automatic movement, a date complication, and a matching bracelet.
