Whenever Swatch and luxury fake OMEGA collaborate, they make sure we know about it. The duo, who together are a force to be reckoned with, have made the cheap super clone Omega MoonSwatchUK their thing over the past 12 months, a timepiece that’s been virtually impossible to get a hold of every time they drop.
Swatch and AAA quality replica OMEGA‘s latest collaboration, which came soon after another MoonSwatch teaser on its Instagram last week, takes the watch to another level this season with the luxurious addition of ostrich leather straps.
This best 1:1 replica Omega MoonSwatch link up will retail exclusively at London’s Harvey Nichols from December 27 as the first in a series of exclusive collaborations to be stocked at the famed retailer.
Since Swatch and Swiss movement fake OMEGAUK’s debut MoonSwatch back in 2021, the desirability of the pair’s supermoon-inspired watches have skyrocketed.
From its harvest moon Mission to Moonshine Gold MoonSwatch in late summer to its super sought-after Swiss Day special, Swatch and OMEGA have had would-be customers queuing around the block such is the draw of their MoonSwatch (and the fact Swatch only sells its top quality replica OMEGA collabs in-store.) Thing is, the high quality fake Omega MoonSwatch’s popularity is no major surprise, especially when you consider that it’s essentially a more affordable Speedmaster. Sure, it’s not cheap by any means, but paying less than four figures for such a nice watch is certainly kinder on the wallet.
One surf on the interweb will show you that last year’s Mission to Moonshine Gold Moonswatch is still up on resell sites for nearly over $100. Then again, that’s pocket money compared to the Omega Speedmaster super clone for sale, which can be had secondhand for anywhere from $4,000 to upwards.
Anyways, the Swatch x Swiss made super clone OMEGA MoonSwatch story continues on for 2023 and with a few weeks left until 2024, they could even squeeze another one in, right? Wishful thinking.
Every month, we’re introducing a new 1:1 super clone Omega Speedmaster strap with the Swedish brand REM. Our ninth one for 2023 is this white Saturn V strap, which works especially well with white-dial Speedmaster models.
Saturn V The Saturn V rocket carried the Apollo 8 to Apollo 17 missions from 1968 to 1972. Additionally, in 1973, it carried the first Skylab mission. Successful missions before Apollo 8 used the predecessor of the Saturn V rocket. Since Saturn V played an essential role in many of the Apollo missions, we thought it would be nice to commemorate this rocket with the September 2023 edition of the Fratello × REM strap. This time, we chose white leather with red stitching and an engraved image of the Saturn V rocket. Due to the white and red, we also thought about the perfect super clone Omega Speedmaster Alaska Project watch. It’s a perfect pairing, but this strap will also look great on other Speedmaster models.
Some background The Speedmaster Alaska Project goes back to the late 1960s when AAA quality replica Omegaexperimented with creating a watch for NASA that would be even more protected from extreme temperatures. A white dial to reflect heat from the Sun was just one of the features. The prototype also had a specially adjusted 861 movement inside to handle high temperatures, and on top of the titanium cushion-shaped case was a big red anodized aluminum cover for extra protection. In the end, some of these high end copy watches were used in space but not by NASA astronauts. Instead, they ended up with cosmonauts who put them to use.
Omega Speedmaster Alaska Project 2008 In 2008, Swiss made super clone Omega released the Speedmaster Alaska Project as a limited edition of 1,970 pieces. It wasn’t a quick seller at first, but when the demand for top super clone Omega Speedmasters increased, all of them sold out, and the prices skyrocketed.
Fratello × REM Alaska strap with Saturn V This month’s strap goes perfectly with that 2008 high end replica Omega Speedmaster Alaska Project, which originally also came with white Velcro straps. However, it will look great on other Speedmasters too. Whether paired with the white-dial Speedmaster Silver Snoopy Award from 2015, the 1997 Omega Speedmaster Albino super clone for sale, or a blue Gemini IV model from 2005, it will look fantastic. Of course, this white strap will also work on the regular black-dial Moonwatch.
On the strap, you see an engraving of the Saturn V rocket that carried the Apollo missions toward the Moon. These large Saturn V rockets can still be admired at NASA (in Florida and Texas) in the USA. Swiss movement super clone Omega never paid tribute to the Saturn V rocket with a Speedmaster LE, so we thought it would be appropriate to do so with one of our Fratello × REM straps.
It only took me five months and five days to finally be able to find a MoonSwatch at the Swatch Boutique at North Park Mall in Dallas, Texas. The cheap fake Omega x Swatch Bioceramic MoonSwatch landed at the Swatch boutiques on March 26, 2022, a day before I headed to Switzerland for Watches & Wonders 2022. During my trip to Switzerland, I was able to peruse the perfect replica Omega MoonSwatch ‘Mission to Uranus’ —no pun intended— off of the wrist of a watch editor sitting next to me at a dinner in Zürich for the release of the new Breitling Navitimer collection. I personally wasn’t a big fan of the baby blue color scheme on that luxury super clone Omega, but I would’ve gladly taken it with me had he offered to sell. At that moment, it was impossible to get a MoonSwatch and everybody wanted one.
After venturing into every Swatch boutique I stumbled upon in Europe and in the U.S. without luck, I patiently awaited for the best 1:1 fake Omega Speedmaster MoonSwatch to be sold online as it was originally communicated at the time of the launch. To my disappointment and that of many, almost two months ago Nick Hayek Jr. —CEO of Swiss-based Swatch Group— disclosed in an interview with our friends from Fratello Watches, that the AAA quality replica Omega MoonSwatch would not be sold online but only offered at the boutiques in limited quantities. Pretty much like playing a lottery or hitting a lucky strike upon entering a Swatch boutique.
Today, I was finally lucky to enter the Swatch boutique in Dallas and find two models available —’Mission to Mars’ and ‘Mission to Venus’— of which only a couple of high quality super clone watches were still left. Even though neither were my preferred choices —as I personally love the ‘Mission to Mercury’, ‘Mission to the Moon’, and ‘Mission to Jupiter’—, I asked the sales associate if I could get both. Unfortunately, they are only authorized to sell one copy watch per customer per day so I decided to go with the ‘Mission to Mars’ because of its resemblance to the Alaska Project Speedmaster from 1969-1970. Now that I actually own a cheap super clone Omega MoonSwatch, I can honestly tell you if this $260 USD quartz watch is worth the hype or not. While my answer is somewhat ambivalent, I do have to say that this collaboration was a brilliant move by the Swatch Group.
While many watch journalists and even well-rounded watch collectors said that it was sad to see the iconic Omega Speedmaster replica for sale being bastardized into a plastic quartz watch, I think it is the complete opposite and what I consider to be a remarkable marketing strategy.
Not only has Swiss made super clone Omega brought the look and appeal of the Speedmaster to those who can’t afford it —right now— and by doing so, they are guaranteeing that that new Swatch Group customer base will aspire to get the real deal and buy an Omega Speedmaster replica online—instead of a Rolex as their first luxury watch— as soon as they can afford it. Have you guys thought of that?
Back to the hype part, I think that for us that have owned an Omega Speedmaster super clone Paypal before it is not worth the hype, but for those that haven’t been able to own one, it is totally worth it and an incredible product from Swatch. Made out of bioceramic —a blend of ceramic and bio-sourced material from castor-plant oil—, this is not your average plastic Swatch. The best quality copy Omega is extremely well finished and a perfect ode to the Speedmaster in its full glory including the twisted lugs case design, the skinny hour and minute hands, the chrono hands resembling those in the high end copy Omega Speedmaster Alaska Project, the velcro strap, and the tachymetric scale bezel. One thing I do have to point out is that the strap will feel slightly short for those with a wrist bigger than 7.5” in circumference.
While the cheapest Swatch —a 34 mm gents quartz model— will set you back $55 USD, the next best option other than the Swiss movement replica Omega MoonSwatch is the Blurang, a stainless steel SISTEM51 mechanical automatic watch priced at $240 USD. If you look solely at pricing, paying an extra $20 USD for a watch designed after the iconic top super clone Omega Speedmaster and which also bears the Omega logo on the dial, the MoonSwatch is an incredible option and hype aside a very cool watch.
Now, do I think that it would’ve been worth my time to line up at a Swatch Boutique back in March to try to get one of these best super clone watches the day they hit the stores? Absolutely not. Will I try to get the ‘Mission to Mercury’ or the ‘Mission to the Moon’ since they are my favorites? Absolutely yes.
Even though I have said that I was done buying top quality replica watches, this is a perfect watch to wear when you still want that inexpensive watch —under $300 USD— on your wrist to be cool as hell. Or why not just double wrist with a nice watch next to it?
