What better match than a replica timepiece named “Moonwatch” and a dial partially made of lunar meteorite…? It makes sense, don’t you think? Launched to celebrate the relaunch of the legendary Calibre 321, the top quality replica Omega Speedmaster is the top of the range for the lunar watch.
Not only Omega Speedmaster replica with black leather strap houses an absolute masterpiece of mechanical watchmaking, but its case is made of platinum and its dial combines two special materials – which are rare in the context of the Speedy.
The inky black base is made from black onyx and the sub-dials for the chronograph indications are all made with slices of mottled grey lunar meteorite – explaining the pattern, different from a classic iron-nickel meteorite. For the rest, the look is typical Moonwatch and the view through the caseback is simply stunning.
Quick facts: 42mm diameter – Pt950Au20 platinum case – black onyx dial with white gold applied indexes and hands, three meteorite subdials – re-creation of the calibre 321 – hand-wound – black alligator strap – EUR 59,200
Today we will have a look at a classic Omega Speedmaster replica for sale. Well, what a massacre the Grand Final turned out to be! Perhaps we should have had the Ed White ranked higher when we started the competition. Somehow, despite it clearly being beloved by the Speedy community, it feels like a bit of a dark horse winner. But I’m all for dark horses — the darker the better! And this dark-dialed beauty finally put the dog to the sword, slaying the Snoopy most of us thought would win…
But what did we want to happen? Who did we want to win? As the rounds progressed, we all threw our allegiance behind different survivors. Some of us championed the Alaska over the Tintin in that memorable back-and-forth quarter-final. A plucky one or two hopped on the seriously under-populated Apollo 45th bandwagon. And I almost abandoned my own Group winner in favor of my competitor in the quarter-final to end all quarter-finals…
Let’s round-up the bruised and battered losers in reverse order to find out their thoughts, good and bad, about a hotly contested high quality fake Omega Speedmaster World Cup.
Gerard and the Apollo 45th
At last, the black dial fake Omega Apollo XI 45th anniversary is at the top of the list! Unfortunately, here it means that it gained the last place in the Quarter Finals. Product-wise, it’s not fair: the 45th — with its laser-cut dial, titanium case, and Sedna gold trims — is a technical marvel. But in terms of image, I get it. A look at the contenders quickly shows that the others need less explanation and are easier sells all round. That simply brings a larger audience, thus more votes. I accept my loss, with my head held high.
