If I openly state I’m not a particular fan of the perfect fake Omega Speedmaster, you will certainly ask why on earth I bought this watch. Well . . . emotions. When the watch was about to come out, I had a choice to make. A “round” birthday called for a present for myself, and what better gift could I imagine?
The inner debate raged between a few different brands and pieces . . . you know the feeling, when you want to get something special but just can’t decide between this, that, or maybe even that. I struggled, I hesitated, I had doubts, and I changed my mind probably a dozen times.
Then the rumors came, predictions, first rumblings. I decided to buy the luxury fake Omega Ultraman blind without ever seeing a single piece of design, knowing the name, and not having any other information. I also had an amazing opportunity to select a number, so my birthdate is on the back.
What makes me happy every Tuesday is not necessarily the Swiss made replica Omega UK itself, but what it stands for. First there is the moon story, which is – let’s not fool ourselves – about the sexiest and most exciting story there is in watchmaking. You’ve gotta be impressed and even possibly a bit overwhelmed by the famous “Flight-Qualified By Nasa For All Manned Space Missions” engraved on the back next to the 1:1 super clone Omega Speedmaster emblem.
Then there are the people.
Speedy Tuesday was all about Fratello founder Robert-Jan Broer and his idea to create a catchy hashtag for his crazy AAA replica Omega Speedmaster obsession. What was at first just an innocent hashtag turned into the fastest growing watch community out there, with tens of thousands of devoted followers sharing the same love and affection.
The Swiss movement fake Omega that I chose has that very special bond with people and passion, people that I consider friends and even mentors in the watch world (I’m looking at you, RJ). They make the super clone watch for me, make it more than just an object to tell the time strapped on the wrist.
I cherish these emotions every time I wear high quality replica Omega. There’s no better reason to actually own a watch than that.
