The last vintage replica watch I would definitely add to my collection if it weren’t so expensive is the Swiss fake Omega Speedmaster CK2998-1. As you probably know, most of the Fratello team members love the Speedmaster. My favorite vintage piece is the first generation cheap replica Omega Speedmaster that has all the trademarks of a Speedmaster as we still know it today.
Some of the 1:1 fake Omega Speedmaster CK2915-3 executions already featured a black bezel, but the Swiss made replica watches were the first actual generation with the looks that we have come to love. Robert-Jan summed it up perfectly in his extensive article about the best quality copy Omega CK2998-1: “It represents the Speedmaster in its best form. The black bezel, leaf hands, straight-lug case, and caliber 321.” It basically says it all, really.
The uk aaa quality replica Omega Speedmaster CK2998-1 is a grail watch for many Speedmaster fans, myself included. But with prices starting at roughly 30K and moving up quickly depending on the condition, this is a seriously expensive uk super clone watch. I found one auctioned by Philips this year for a little over 35K Swiss Francs, a price that surprised me in all honesty. Versions with a so-called “Tropical” dial tend to go for a lot more.
One thing is clear, though, that I have set my sights on different top fake Omega Speedmasters to add to my collection. It starts with the brilliant current perfect fake Omega Speedmaster Professional “Moonwatch” and a Speedmaster Professional 145.022-76 from 1977, my year of birth. These two will give me as much fun as the Omega replica for men that is out of my league. But it can’t hurt to dream once in a while.
