Released just hours after Nick Jonas’ fourth solo album dropped, the music video for Spaceman shows The Voice coach wandering through a barren terrain on another planet as he tries to figure out how to get home to his wife, Priyanka Chopra who appears in hologram form.
While the Speedmaster remains fake Omega’s most successful watch, specifically since the renewal of the collection recently, the other important pillar in the collection if, of course, the Seamaster. Past years have seen the brand focusing mostly on the Diver 300M. Yet, there’s another dive watch that deserves some attention, an even more powerful model with proper diving credentials, the Planet Ocean 600m. Recently, we got our hands on a model that we consider to be sort of a hidden gem in the collection… This is the cheap fake Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean 600m 22.214.171.124.01 and we give a closer look at it.
Neither the concept of an Swiss movement replica Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean 600m GMT nor this actual watch is new. In fact, the concept came on the market in 2013 and the watch we’ll be looking at today has been launched in 2016. Still, it is part of these watches that somehow didn’t get the recognition it truly deserves. This traveller’s PO 600M is a watch that has A LOT to offer, whether regarding its specifications, its actual overall execution or its look, with a monochromatic colour scheme that is something we somehow need to love here. If today the PO 600M has been recently a bit neglected, due to the launch of the updated Diver 300M collection, it remains one of the most purposeful and comprehensive collections of high-end dive replica watches around, and that since its introduction in 2005. It is also a highly powerful watch, fully equipped for deep diving and built with impressive overall quality. Multiple variations have been created, including classic time-and-date models as well as chronographs, but the GMT only came in 2013, with this model. The combination of diving and traveller’s credentials is a classic for the industry and makes for some of the most practical models you can think of.
In 2016, the Omega copy introduced a whole new collection of Seamaster Planet Ocean 600m, including revised time-and-date models with new materials, colours and mechanics – namely, Master Chronometer movements – as well as this new edition of the GMT model. And while the brand has for long focussed on contrasting bright colours for the collection, this one plays on an opposite theme, being black and white… but striking nevertheless. The fundamentals of the collection are well present here and the Planet Ocean 600m GMT remains faithful to the basics; a 43.5mm case in stainless steel, typically Seamaster twisted “lyre” lugs, combination of brushed surfaces and polished bevels on the sides, robust case with screw-down crown, helium escape valve and external bezel and, as indicated by its name, a 600m water-resistance. The luxury fake Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean 600m has always been a large watch, available in various sizes. Yet, even in its smaller editions, it is a watch with a strong wrist presence. This GMT edition, measuring over 43mm across and 17mm in height, is no exception to the rule. However… It is a watch that deserves more than just a look at the specification sheet. It needs to be tried on the wrist as its conception is clever, specifically when worn on the present strap. First of all, while the thickness can’t be forgotten, the case wears smaller than expected, with a 49mm lug-to-lug dimensions – which isn’t that large for such a watch – as the case is short. In addition to that, the way the bracelet is attached to the watch and wraps the wrist reinforce this sensation of compactness. All in all, the watch is certainly large but far more comfortable than expected – and mostly, very balanced and firmly in position. The strap, with its rubber lining covered with a black alligator insert, is closed by a folding clasp and its execution is really pleasant.
Regarding the rest of the habillage, the most obvious evolution between this Omega replica for sale and a classic time-and-date model is the bezel. No more unidirectional bezel with a 60-minute scale here but a bi-directional bezel with 24 very smooth clicks and a specific 24h insert. This is the main difference with another Planet Ocean 600m GMT, the “Deep Black”, which benefits from a larger diameter and use the extra space on the dial to relocate its 24h scale, thus keeping the 60-minute scale on the bezel. 2 watches with a slightly different vocation, the present version being slightly more “travel-focused”. The ceramic insert is made of black and white ceramics, with the white area classically representing daytime while the black part is devoted, you’ve guessed it, to night hours. The overall watch feels solid as a rock and the level of precision is, as you’d expect from Omega, very high. Under the sapphire crystal, the brand’s in-house Calibre 8906 is at centre stage. The base for this movement is well-known amongst Omega’s collection, being the 89xx – used in the Globemaster, the Aqua Terra 150m, the Constellation and more… This automatic movement, more powerful than the 8500 as featuring two barrels for a 60h power reserve, benefits from the entire lineup of technologies offered by Omega – co-axial escapement, METAS tests, anti-magnetic properties, silicon parts, free-sprung balance. As the 8906, it receives an additional GMT complication, which is adjusted exactly as it should, meaning that it is the local time that is adjusted by one-hour increments (and not the 24h hand, as in ETA or Sellita movements).
The only downside of the new era of perfect fake Speedmaster is the new era of pricing. When considering your first luxury watch, the Speedmaster has long been a safe suggestion. It’s iconic, historic and, previously, very well-priced considering its prestige and performance capabilities. The 1861 models initially were lower in price, and over time crept up to meet the current standing of the marketplace.
The 2021 Swiss made replica Omega Speedmaster 3861 models are effectively a thousand dollars more expensive (at least in USD) than the previous models, which is leading some to cry foul. If I am being honest though, I think the increase is quite fair, all considering. These new co-axial powered models are effectively the middle ground between the previous generation and the revived 321 model. At this time, it would seem the 3861 powered models are replacing the 1861/3 models that came before them – but at the time of writing the sapphire sandwich 1861 Speedmasters are still available for purchase through Omega’s official channels while supplies last, and there will be no shortage of availability on the pre-owned market.
When I make my case for the price increase, I explain that the superior movement technology, bracelet, and subtle aesthetic changes to the dial and case go a long way to justifying the cost. Plus, considering the mass availability of these watches, I don’t see how this hike affects buyers who want 1861-powered Speedies – they’ll still be pretty easy to track down. Considering a Rolex Daytona is twice the price of the new Speedmaster, and chronographs from Breitling, Zenith, and others hover around this price point as well, it was fairly inevitable the price would eventually rise.
To sum it all up, the new watch definitely caters to the tastes and preferences of the brand’s most devoted followers and I applaud AAA quality fake Omega for making the external incremental changes we all wanted to see while also including the latest movement technology – previously only found in a much more expensive Apollo XI Moonshine watch that was a limited edition. Like the Grand Seiko dual impulse 9SA5 making its debut in steel in the SLGH003, I believe this is a real win for most buyers.
The first watch in this list is the best quality fake Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra 150M with a green dial. The watch was officially released in February of this year, along with a blue dial version. Seeing the press images made it look like a decent addition to the Aqua Terra line-up. But that changed when Robert-Jan and I had a chance to check it from up close at a local AD. The beautiful green dial is the perfect addition to the Aqua Terra line-up. As Robert-Jan stated in his review of the watch, this is the Aqua Terra to go for! The 41 mm Omega replica watch offers everything you would need from a modern daily wearer. At 41mm, this is a perfect fit for many wrists. The watch is powered by the great Master Chronometer certified caliber 8900. It features an independent hour hand, date indication at 6 o’clock, is anti-magnetic up to 15,000 gauss, and has a power reserve of 60 hours.
Overall this is the perfect modern daily wearer. But the true star of the show is the green dial. That deep green color works perfectly in combination with that typical teak deck motif. The moment you put it on your wrist, it feels incredibly comfortable and looks stunning.
By adding this to the collection, Swiss movement replica Omega has created a winner. And if Santa reads it, he knows the one to get is the version on the bracelet. At €5,700, it is only €300 more expensive than the version with the black leather strap. That’s a no-brainer, really, because you will find it to be one of the best daily wearers out there for that money. And on a stainless steel bracelet, it looks the part as well.
It sold out within just a few moments on that first morning of Baselworld 2015. Of the Fratelli, only RJ managed to get a hold of one, and no, it is not a safe queen nor being babied. That watch is for wearing and has even been signed by an Apollo astronaut. First of all, I am very happy that the finals consist of these two watches. They are well-deserved spots, although, from a personal standpoint, I wouldn’t have minded seeing the Speedy Tuesday “Tribute to Alaska III” or the Speedy Tuesday “Ultraman” in the finals. Anyway, it is the Speedmaster Silver Snoopy Award that was introduced in 2015. I am not surprised it is the Speedmaster ending up in the finals of this Speedmaster World Cup.
Let’s not talk about the connection between Snoopy and NASA again. If you’re unfamiliar with that, click here to catch up. I am getting a little bit tired of people who complain about this beagle on the dial of a Speedmaster. They’re either trolling or they don’t know about the history between NASA and this particular watchdog. Anyway, so far these complainers have been in the minority, so I am happy that common sense prevails.
Celebration of success Sure, the Speedmaster Calibre 321 “Ed White” is an amazing piece, and I am happy to own one, but it is a fairly normal Speedmaster. So far, the Calibre 321 has been even more unobtainable than the Snoopy ever was. That may sound strange, but Omega squeezed out 1,970 of these beautiful Snoopies with hand-made case backs in roughly 12 months, whereas the non-limited edition Calibre 321 is almost harder to get than a steel Daytona. Let’s all agree both Speedmasters here are nicer than any Daytona though. While the €14,000 Speedmaster Calibre 321 is a beautiful re-creation of an existing reference from the past, the fake Omega Speedmaster Silver Snoopy Award is a watch created from an almost blank canvas. To celebrate the success of the safe return of Apollo 13 and the prestigious NASA award Omega received for its role during that mission, Omega designed an amazing tribute!
I feel lucky that I’ve met with the designer of the black bezel fake Omega Speedmaster Silver Snoopy Award and I love the exquisite details she has put into this watch. Although the dog and text are a bit gimmicky on the dial, it is good fun and a sign you shouldn’t take yourself too seriously. Serious business is the case back though, amazing craftsmanship demonstrated with a sterling silver replica of the Snoopy lapel pin on a starry sky. This dark blue sky has been created from enamel with silver powder used for the stars.
What’s not to like here? Sure, you “need” a regular Moonwatch as well. A Speedmaster Professional with Hesalite crystal or even the new Speedmaster Calibre 321 “Ed White” will fit any collection and especially for that regular Speedmaster, there’s no excuse not to buy one. But this white dialed Snoopy, is a tribute version to the best chronograph ever made in combination with its successful role during Apollo 13. What’s not to like here? This steel case replica Omega Speedmaster Silver Snoopy Award has also been the starting point for many to become interested in collecting Speedmasters and its limited editions. For me, it has been good fun ever since and I am more than proud of my modest collection of Moonwatch models. This Silver Snoopy Award takes an important spot in my collection, not in the least place because it is so different from those black dialed Moonwatch variations. I know about the high resale value of this watch, but that shouldn’t play a role in choosing this watch as a winner of the Speedmaster World Cup. It is about the design, the background story of this Swiss replica watch, and its importance for the brand and Speedmaster collection in general.
The best replica Omega Speedmaster is one of the most celebrated watches of the last half-century, in part because of the countless different versions the brand has released. But in a world where a limited-edition Speedmaster isn’t a new thing anymore, is the watch community still interested in another new release? This watch has put it beyond any doubt. Absolutely, yes, they are. People can’t get enough of the latest Snoopy Speedy, with waitlists stretching around the figurative block as people line up to strap one to their wrist. But what makes the latest replica Omega Speedmaster ‘Silver Snoopy Award’ 50th Anniversary so exciting? Let’s take a closer look.
Most people will know the Swiss made fake Omega Speedmaster was worn by NASA astronauts during the space race in the late 1960s, and even worn on the moon itself. This lunar heritage kickstarted the Speedmaster stampede with thousands of collectors around the world. What is less well known is how the watch saved the lives of astronauts during the near disastrous Apollo 13 mission in 1970. After an oxygen tank exploded, crippling the Service Module, John L. “Jack” Swigert relied upon the Speedmaster’s chronograph function to time a critical 14-second rocket burn that enabled him to correct the spacecraft’s course and return home safely.
For this, AAA cheap fake Omega was given the Silver Snoopy Award (an award that was usually only given to NASA staff) to recognise the contribution the Speedmaster watches worn by the astronauts made to the safe return of everyone on board.
The Silver Snoopy Award subsequently came to symbolise the relationship between Omega and NASA, with the brand releasing the Speedmaster Professional Snoopy in 2003. This limited edition of 5441 pieces was followed in 2015 by the release of the Speedmaster Apollo 13 Silver Snoopy Award that was limited to an even leaner 1970 pieces. Both of these limited-edition watches featured the Snoopy icon in the 9 o’clock sub-dial, and have proven extremely popular, with the prices for pre-owned pieces growing steadily in the years after their release. That the new Omega Speedmaster ‘Silver Snoopy Award’ 50th Anniversary is not a limited edition has immediately sparked considerable excitement. Now, let’s get into the watch itself.
The dial of the watch is made from galvanised silver and configured in a typical “panda” format with deep blue sub-dials. The blue of the sub-dials nicely matches the ceramic bezel that frames the dial, which features the tachymeter scale you’d expect on a Speedy of any type.
In the 9 o’clock sub-dial, where the running seconds sit, you’ll find the Snoopy icon with the text “50th Anniversary” as a cartoon reminder of why the Speedmaster is so special. It isn’t till you flip the watch over that you see why this particular Speedmaster is so significant.
Based on the standard-issue Speedmaster Professional, the 42mm stainless steel case is ever so slightly asymmetrical. This is due to the case being a touch wider on its right side, in order to offer the crown and chronograph pushers some protection by being mildly recessed into the case. The famous twisted lugs are present, with a sharp blend of polished and brushed surfaces that highlight the sweeping case lines. The case thickness is kept reasonable at 14.5mm, but considering the view you get when you turn the watch over, it’s more than acceptable.
On the caseback of the watch is a scene of the moon that has been specially produced to appear 3D, with the earth in the background, set against the expanse of the universe. The first thing you’ll notice is that the earth rotates once every 60 seconds as it’s connected to the running seconds sub-dial on the dial side. But the real magic happens when you activate the chronograph. After those 14 fateful seconds elapse, Snoopy appears in his own lunar module to take a trip over the surface of the moon. The cartoon character is suspended by a very thin transparent hand that is connected to the chronograph mechanism in an ingenious way of bringing Snoopy to life.
Now, there has been some criticism (likely by folks who weren’t fans of the Speedmaster to begin with) that this mechanical animation is a bit gimmicky. I couldn’t disagree more. There is something fantastically whimsical, pure and lighthearted that you feel when you see Snoopy making his way across the backdrop of space, and Omega should be applauded for their creativity in this complication.
You can show this watch to a child or a friend with no interest in mechanical watches and both will be equally impressed by the micro-mechanical marvel that is moving before their eyes. They don’t need to know anything about watchmaking, because Snoopy speaks to something more universal than the narrow world of horology. Snoopy reminds us of the fascination that we all felt as children when we learned about mankind going to the moon. That special feeling is a hard one to coax out of technically focused or serious-minded watch enthusiasts.
Beneath the dial of the Omega Speedmaster ‘Silver Snoopy Award’ 50th Anniversary is the in-house, hand-winding Omega caliber 3861 that is supplemented with the mechanical animation. This caliber is a Master Chronometer certified movement, guaranteeing an accuracy of between 0 and +5 seconds per day. It features anti-magnetic capabilities up to 15,000-gauss and, despite the energy-draining caseback complication, still offers a respectable 50 hours of power reserve.
The strap is a navy blue nylon textile that is a similar colour to both the bezel and sub-dials. It is also secured with a pin buckle, that removes some of the bulk that comes with a folding clasp. The strap also hides another treat – embossed on the rear of the strap is the flight path of the Apollo 13 voyage that the Speedmaster famously travelled on, including the point where the crew used their watches to correct their course. This watch sure is all about the details!
Without a doubt, this is one of the most surprising and delightful watches of the year. Did we need another special edition Omega Speedmaster? Well, in this case, yes, because it offers something genuinely new and exciting. This isn’t a mere dial or bezel colour change. It’s a mechanical animation that brings to life a character that is very close to many of our hearts and tells a vital part of the Omega story. The fact that it is not a limited edition is the cherry on top that enables more collectors and enthusiasts around the world to be able to carry a small part of the Omega and NASA history on their wrist.
The comments and feedback on the new perfect replica Omega Speedmaster Silver Snoopy Award have been pretty amazing. As such, it’s time for us to talk you through all Speedmaster Snoopy watches that have been out there since 2003.
After seeing the new Swiss made fake Speedmaster Snoopy in the flesh, it immediately became my favorite of the three. Based on the comments on our previous articles and on social media, the enthusiasts love this new Speedmaster Snoopy. But, it also seemed that many still prefer the Silver Snoopy Award edition from 2015. I own the 2003 and 2015 Speedmaster Snoopy watches, and I have ordered the new one as well. Having them all three in front of me (the new Speedmaster Snoopy 50th anniversary being a prototype for review), my pick is the latest.
Another very commonly asked question is about the color. “How blue is that blue?” and how does it compare to the blue CK2998 edition from a few years ago? Although we don’t have a blue CK2998 in our possession, we did put the Snoopy side-by-side to a CK2998 (from a collector and friend of the show). It seems the blue of the Omega Speedmaster Snoopy 50th anniversary is a bit of a lighter blue.
And also, the blue of the quality replica Omega Speedmaster Snoopy watch responds more to light circumstances. It can look very light blue at times, and almost turn to black as well.
Luxury sports fake watches have seemed to undergo a revival in recent years, with the introduction of numerous interpretations from multiple watch manufacturers. The Omega watches from the 1970s and 1980s were rather interesting. They are typically stylish in design, with extensive use of colours and different case shapes to make itself stand out. The Speedmaster Mark II, which was originally launched in 1969, is certainly one of our favourite Swiss movemeng replica Omega timepieces from that era.
In Baselworld 2014, Omega had decided to launch an updated version of the steel case replica Omega Speedmaster Mark II. The 2014 variant still remains true to its roots. The watch retains its distinctive case shape, together with its dial design and the bracelet of the watch. However, the new variant features several updates as well. This includes the new Co-Axial Calibre 3330 self-winding movement, which features a Si14 silicon balance spring, a column-wheel chronograph mechanism, and a date display. In addition, the tachymeter scale glows in the dark as well, which adds a nice touch to the chronograph.
The cheap Omega Mark II copy watch is available in three different variants at the moment, although we have a slight preference for the model with the orange accents (the one that we have pictured above). Priced at S$8,250, we reckon the new Mark II offers collectors the best of both worlds – combining the latest mechanical bits into a vintage-looking timepiece from the yesteryears. It is also an interesting and slightly uncommon option for collectors who find the regular Speedmasters a little passé.
The best fake Omega Speedmaster 3126.96.36.199.04.001 is an automatic watch with a white and black dial with a date window at the 4:30 position. This chronograph features a small seconds counter, 30-minute recorder and 12-hour recorder with a central chronograph hand.
The bezel, with its tachymetric scale, is mounted on a 40mm stainless steel case and presented on a stainless steel bracelet. Being a modern Omega Speedmaster replica watch with stainless steel case , it has a scratch-resistant sapphire crystal, and ticking inside is Omega’s chronometer certified caliber 3304 (based on the Valjoux 7753). Believe it or not, it’s also 100 metres water resistant, which allowed me to actually take it into the ocean once or twice (being cognisant enough to not push down the pushers of the chronograph while wet).
What drew me to the watch was its striking panda dial, which has been popularised as a result of one of the most famous wristwatches of all time — the Paul Newman Rolex Daytona. Around the time the watch was announced to be auctioned, I knew two things: first, I loved the look; second, there was no way anytime soon I would be able to afford a Paul Newman Daytona. Especially Paul Newman’s actual Daytona, which would later sell for more than $17 million. I decided this would make a great compromise and decided to purchase the Omega replica watch with panda dial and, separately, a black bund strap to complete the pseudo Newman look. It didn’t hurt that it was an Omega watch, a brand revered for the build of its watches.
Omega has launched a brand new diving watch to enrich the family of popular Seamaster Diver 300 M. This special edition is created to pay tribute to this non-profit marine research foundation dedicated to exploring and protecting the global ocean. Why do these Omega diving watches attract numerous men?
This new Seamaster features a black ceramic dial that is crafted by the ZrO2, that is adorned with polished three dimensional waved pattern made by the laser. The 5-grade titanium bezel is decorated with diving scale ablated by laser, presenting special appearance similar to sand-blasting finish.
Extraordinary automatic movement
This Omega knockoff with titanium bezel is driven by Cal.8806, a co-axial master chronometer, providing 55 hours power reserve.
Like other models of Seamaster Diver 300 m, this new limited edition is water resistant to a depth of 300 meters, which has attracted numerous professional divers.
