There are not that many watches that truly deserve the label “iconic” and, on top of that, are still somewhat affordable. The 1:1 super clone Omega Speedmaster Professional, however, belongs in that category. You can buy interesting Speedmaster models for a very acceptable amount below €4,000 or go as crazy as you’d like.
I am amazed that there are still some “undiscovered” beauties out there that can be had for a very decent price. But this article is not about getting the most affordable Omega Speedmaster super clone for sale or finding the very best bargains out there. Rather, it’s about starting a Speedmaster collection.
What makes this watch so interesting to me is that every cheap fake Omega Speedmaster owner seems to have a story to share. When my Fratello colleague Gerard had his pre-owned watch shop here in The Hague, there was a display in the center of his boutique packed with Omega Speedmasters replica online UK. Quite often, when entering the shop (it was kind of a hang-out for watch enthusiasts in the pre-social media era) there would be someone in front, above, or under the display to observe the Omega Speedmaster copy watches inside the glass box.
But even today, I receive a lot of messages from AAA super clone Omega Speedmaster owners who share their personal stories of what this watch means to them. Sometimes it is rather straightforward. It is simply about the association with the Moon landing or about the design of the cheap fake Omega Speedmaster. But besides the aesthetics or the Moonwatch story, there’s often an even more interesting reason behind owning the Speedmaster. Some inherit a Speedmaster from a father or grandfather. Others commemorate a special life event with one. Then there are people who buy a perfect copy Omega Speedmaster with the idea of passing it on to a son or daughter.
I have played a role in acquiring some of the Omega Speedmasters super clone for men that were meant to celebrate special occasions. I’ve helped with a special project that had a very personal and important meaning (which I can’t disclose). I have even been involved in bringing very special astronauts’ top fake Omega Speedmasters home. Some of the stories that came to me have been very emotional, whereas other stories are a bit more product-focused. But what all had in common was the love for the Speedmaster. Even when the reason or event was of greater importance than the watch, the choice of the high quality replica Omega Speedmaster was a deliberate one.
