It is important for Omega this year since it is the 50th anniversary of Apollo 11’s successful landing on the moon. Absolutely the famous Swiss watch brand created the Speedmaster Apollo 11 commemorative edition wristwatches. Meanwhile, the brand-new material – Moonshine 18k gold has been created. Here we will appreciate these magnificent Omega copy watches launched this year.
The first one must be the glorious Omega Speedmaster fake with Moonshine gold case. The timepiece perfectly reproduces the appearance and charm of the ref.BA145.022 launched in 1969. The appearance of this brand-new Speedmaster looks the same with the original one, however, it has also adopted the advanced modern technology and craftsmanship.
The second is also developed to salute to the Apollo 11’s 50th anniversary. The most distinctive feature is the Moonshine 18k gold sub-dial at 9 o’clock, on which the image that Buzz Aldrin was about to set foot on the moon had been engraved by laser. The perfect imitation watch perfectly presents the profound relationship between Speedmaster and legendary story of the moon landing.
Eddie Redmayne is one of my favorite actors and I have watched all his works for several times. He is really a charming man, a best actor and best father and husband. The reason why I love Omega is mostly because of him for he is the ambassador of Omega. What he chooses must be best. Yes, I admit that I am a die-hard fan of him – the elegant gentleman.
This time he wore the suits with the theme of Omega and a perfect Omega Constellation fake watch to attend the exhibition of the watch brand. In daily life, he is humorous and polite, but when attending the activities, he is really gentle.
Referring to the partnership between Eddie and Omega, it will date back to 2015. He wore the Omega Seamaster copy with steel case in the advertising campaign of Omega. He said that his father owned a piece of Omega De Ville when he was young and he also chose the Omega Constellation for his wife. Now Eddie Redmayne won the fame, wealth for himself but when you talk with him, you will still feel that he is still that pure and clear boy.
If you ask me the reason why I love this significant Omega Speedmaster copy watch, I will say that there’s no reason. Without any discount, I bought this timepiece for myself. My friends ask me whether I am regretful or not for Omega always offers the good discount for customers. The answer is absolutely not.
The dial is the highlight of this Omega fake watch with black ceramic case which perfectly presents the appearance of the surface of the moon. It will remind you of the legend of moon landing history of Omega. The yellow elements on the dial are every eye-catching. Comparing with my 44 mm Panerai, this Omega seems lighter and smaller due to the material – ceramic.
The rubber and leather strap fits my wrists perfectly. However, the 44 mm knockoff watch is only water resistant to a depth of 50 meters, which means you’d better take it off when washing the hands.
Last month Omega announced to release the new watch – Speedmaster “Apollo 11” anniversary limited edition. The original model of this luxury copy Omega Speedmaster is the ref.BA145.022 which is manufactured from 1969 to 1973. The new timepiece perfectly reproduced the appearance of the original model and many watch lovers even couldn’t tell the difference between them.
From the picture, it is really difficult to tell the difference. In fact, the material of the case is different. The 18K gold is exclusively developed and manufactured by Omega and it is called “Moon shine Gold”. In addition, the black hour markers are also the highlight of the new Omega fake watch with Moonshine gold case which are made from the agate.
It is worthy mentioning that the movement of the new significant US knockoff watch with yellow dial is the brand new calibre 3861. Many watch lovers thought that the calibre 321 may be used on the significant watches.
The diving watches become the most popular watches in watchmaking industry, so each watch brand releases their diving watches including Omega which has important status in the field. The new practical fake Omega Seamasterhas combined the extraordinary movement with the high-tech ceramic case, releasing a new generation of diving watch – Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean.
The new Omega copy watch with ceramic bezel has contained many innovative materials and technology. It features a 45.5 mm case, meanwhile, combining the function of GMT and diving perfectly. How to manufacture a diving watch which is all created by ceramic and ensure that it could withstand pressures up to 600 meters / 2,000 feet under the sea is the biggest technological problem.
The movement of this knockoff watch with ceramic case is also with high technology. The calibre 8906 offers greater resistance to 15,000 gauss, meaning that you can wear it doing MRI. Meanwhile, it could also provides the two time zones.
The small and exquisite watches which are engraved with many shiny diamonds or gemstones will not meet the requirements of contemporary women. What they want has changed a lot nowadays. Many stylish women want to demonstrate their special charm and personal characteristic through the timepieces on the wrist. No matter in daily life or attending the commercial meeting, a piece of delicate fake watch will enhance the charm of them and draw the attention from others.
Omega De Ville copy watch with white dial will meet all the requirements of modern ladies which has combined the classic element with the modern fashionable aesthetics. The case is thinner and distinctive, at two sides of which are engraved with shiny diamonds, adding the feminine touch to the model.
The quartz movement Omega imitationwatch will be good choice for office lady. The classic and elegant design will make the wearers more charming, independent and confident. Meanwhile, it is very cheap and many people could afford it.
Every Tuesday on my website, www.fratellowatches.com, we tackle a topic related to Omega Speedmaster watches. This article comes to us from the “Speedy Tuesday” archives, and focuses on my opportunity to review, compare and contrast the modern stainless steel case Omega Speedmaster Mark II fake watches with its vintage predecessor from 1969.
After the Omega Speedmaster Professional won the race to the Moon in 1969, Omega thought it was time to come up with a watch that was perhaps a bit more up-to-date and ready for the 1970s — design-wise, that is, as the watch would still need to handle the same abuse as the Speedmaster Professional “Moonwatch” could. Sometime in 1969, Omega introduced the first Speedmaster Mark II, which was actually a Speedmaster Professional Mark II. (For non-native-English-speaking readers: the “Mark” in the name stands for a new or revised/improved version; it is similar to calling something a “2.0 version” these days.) The Speedmaster Mark II came with the same Lemania-based movement as the Moonwatch, Reference 145.022. This movement is Omega’s Caliber 861 and was in production from 1968 through about 1996, when it was succeeded by the Caliber 1861 movement. The Speedmaster Mark II had a barrel-shaped case that looked totally different from the asymmetrical Speedmaster Professional case. The regular Speedmaster, which was issued to NASA astronauts, was still in production, however. Throughout all the Speedmaster Mark series, the regular Speedmaster Pro remained available (and, of course, remains so today).
When Omega ceased production of the Speedmaster Mark II in 1972, the Mark III already had been introduced. The Speedmaster Mark III was succeeded by the Mark IV in 1973. Then there is the Mark 4.5 (which is a Mark IV with a different movement, an Omega Caliber 1045), which came on the market in 1974. The last one of the Speedmaster Mark series is the Mark V, introduced around 1984. Confusing, right? There are even more models in between and some slight variations on the above. In any case, Omega decided to do a Speedmaster Mark II reissue in 2014, and we noticed that the watches were already in the Omega boutiques before their official introduction at Baselworld 2014. Just like the original Speedmaster (Professional) Mark II watches, there are a few variations available of the Omega Speedmaster Mark II Co-Axial 2014 models. There is a black-dial version and a racing-dial version as well as a Speedmaster Mark II “Rio 2016” Olympic Games edition (pictured below) that we saw during our appointment with Omega.
As you can see on the photo of the Speedmaster Mark II Racing (below), the barrel-shaped case and bracelet are very similar to those on the original version. We will come to that comparison later on. If you take a closer look, you will notice that the dial is somewhat different from the original. The racing track is a bit different from the original, which had a red outer track and an orange Omega logo at 12 o’clock. However, the biggest differences are perhaps in the text on the dial and the fact that the new Speedmaster Mark II 2014 model has a date aperture. Instead of a no-date, hand-wound chronograph movement – like the one that is still being used in the Speedmaster Professional 357x.xx series – Omega decided to use its Caliber 3330 movement. This movement has a column-wheel mechanism, a co-axial escapement, an Si14 silicon balance spring and a power reserve of 52 hours. It has little similarity with the original movement, except for the tri-compax layout of the dial, of course.
People have asked us about the base movement for Omega Caliber 3330, as it is not one of Omega’s in-house-developed chronograph movements (the Caliber 93xx series). We tend to think that it is based on some ETA caliber that has been tailored for exclusive use by Omega only, hence the Si14 balance spring and co-axial escapement. It is understandable that Omega decided to use this movement. It is probably not a watch for the purist – although it is an awesome timepiece – but more for someone who loves vintage watches but wants to wear something new. There also may be some collectors who just feel that they need a piece like this in their Speedmaster collection. We believe that the target audience, though, is the guy who loved seeing the vintage Speedmaster Mark II on the wrist of his father or grandfather and has decided to go with a similar timepiece with all the modern technology inside. For the purists, there are still some great pre-owned vintage Speedmaster Mark II models out there that are priced attractively.
So, would you opt for the old, original Omega Speedmaster (Professional) Mark II or would you rather have one of the modern versions? We’ve put the old Speedmaster Mark II Ref. 145.014 next to the new Ref. 3188.8.131.52.01.001 and show you the optical differences between the two. (We’ve already discussed the movements a bit so need to compare those.) The dimensions of the contemporary Speedmaster Mark II are 42.4 mm x 46.2 mm, whereas the vintage model measured 41.75 mm x 45 mm. This means that the newer model is slightly bigger, which is evident in the photos below.
On the dial, you will notice that – besides the date window, obviously – there are other differences between these two. It seems that the new black dial Omega Speedmaster Mark II fake watches with the matte black dial has the same graphics printed on it as the racing version, with the exception of the use of orange for some of its accents. The minute track and hour markers are quite different from the Speedmaster Mark II 145.014 model. It is clear that the old model has a dial that is more similar to the Speedmaster Pro “Moonwatch” than to its 45-years-younger successor. The hands have also changed a bit, and are now a mixture between the original Speedmaster hands and the Speedmaster Mark III hands. Although the vintage Mark II in the photos is a bit roughed up, you can clearly see the similarities between the style of finish on the case and bracelet. The polished edges on the case give a superb contrast to the sunburst brushed finish of the upper side of the case. Keep in mind that the Speedmaster Mark II’s sunburst brushed finish is a magnet to scratches – this doesn’t have anything to do with the material, only with the type of finishing – and it will require a pretty good watchmaker to deal with this. In any case, we’d advise you to have this finish redone by Omega, which has the proper machines and knowledge.
The bracelet clasp is also something that you will immediately notice when comparing these two. The old steel clasp is just a straightforward folding buckle whereas the new clasp is in line with all the other modern Omega clasps — two release buttons and easy to resize. Again, the one you’d choose depends on your personal preferences and whether buying a vintage watch is in your comfort zone. Buying a nice vintage watch of any kind will require a bit of research. For the modern guy who merely wants a modern watch with a cool, vintage look, today’s Omega Speedmaster Mark II Co-Axial might be the right choice. The black dial version is Reference 3184.108.40.206.01.001 and has a price tag of approx 4,600 euros (including VAT). The orange Speedmaster Mark II racing is Reference 3220.127.116.11.06.001 and has an (approx.) 4,600-euro price tag. A vintage Omega Speedmaster Mark II 145.014 in good condition can be found for below 1,800 euros. For now, that is.
The official presentation on this Speedmaster Mark II watch can be found on the Omega website, where you can switch off the light to see the illumination of the dial and where you can resize the bracelet. What model do you prefer? The charming fake watches are very beautiful which can be your best friends.
