There are two main branches of the perfect super clone Omega Speedmaster Professional family, one that encompasses the Moonwatch and its myriad changes since its introduction and another branch that covers all of the anniversary models, special references, and limited editions. The first branch alone could fill a book – and does so if you are interested in the definitive resource on the subject. With the almost endless expressions of the luxury fake Omega Speedmaster over the years, not all are widely known and appreciated. Some are very rare, like the skeletonized platinum edition of 50 or the Golden Panda one-of-forty JDM Speedmaster, and some just never got their due.
Nicknamed the “Chocolate Sapphire,” this 1:1 super clone Omega Speedmaster (reference 3184.108.40.206.13.001) was produced from 2007-2013, and while it was never a limited edition, it was also not produced in large quantities. The dial is brown, like an old top quality copy Omega Speedmaster that has gone “tropical” – the term for dials that have faded from long-term exposure to sunlight. The lume is also yellowed slightly to match the tropical brown. Unlike most “fauxtina” though, this color is not overly yellow, but more off-white. It is the best use of colored Super-LumiNova this writer has ever seen. Besides the dial change, this is every bit the typical Speedy Pro of the time, with a Lemania 1863 caliber that is a better-finished version of the 1861 since it is visible through the sapphire caseback.
Possibly launched a decade too early, before modern versions of vintage super clone watches online really took off, this watch is an underappreciated gem within the deeply collectible world of the Speedmaster. Out of all the different cheap super clone Omega Speedmasters I have been fortunate enough to come across, this is the one that I personally fell in love with and have since added to my own collection.
