Why I Bought The New Luxury Replica Omega Speedmaster Moonwatch
The new Swiss fake Omega Speedmaster Moonwatch Master Chronometer was not even on my short-term wish list, as I already have a few Moonwatch references, but I simply could not resist. This time, I was initially (and finally) aiming for the best replica Omega Speedmaster Dark Side of the Moon, but the Moonwatch force was strong. I ended up buying the new copy Omega Speedmaster Moonwatch Master Chronometer, with Hesalite crystal. Allow me to explain.
I bought the new Moonwatch with Hesalite crystal, mainly because I think it is somewhat more historically correct. But more importantly, I like the looks of the Hesalite crystal. It magnifies the dial of the cheap fake Omega Speedmaster in a way that the Sapphire crystal can’t. The 1:1 replica Omega Speedmaster sapphire sandwich version does have an edge though, which is the transparent case back. If I wasn’t already a proud owner of the super clone Omega Speedmaster Apollo XI Moonshine edition, which also has the see-through case back, I might have chosen differently.
The New Moonwatch
I will be the first to admit that I don’t particularly need a new Speedmaster, of any kind. But the new luxury fake Omega Speedmaster Professional Moonwatch Master Chronometer (despite its rather lengthy name) somehow grew quicker on me than I thought. Swiss movement replica Omega has been taking it easy with its limited editions recently, although you can debate whether the latest Snoopy 50th anniversary isn’t secretly a limited edition. To me, it isn’t though, as it is in “regular production” and not numbered (or limited in numbers). Its slow production and deliveries might frustrate you (and me), but I am sure it will come to me, at some point.
I’ve been influenced
My last AAA quality fake Omega Speedmaster purchase was the Calibre 321 “Ed White” in 2020, and this year I had nothing specific in mind, except for the Snoopy 50th anniversary model. When perfect copy Omega introduced the new Moonwatch collection on the first (Speedy) Tuesday in January 2021, we received all of the variations in our office to give them proper coverage. Although I liked the new wholesale copy Omega Speedmaster Moonwatch Master Chronometer, I didn’t plan to buy one yet. It will be in Omega’s collection for many years to come, as the previous version dated all the way back to 1997. The top fake Omega Speedmaster Dark Side of the Moon was higher up on my list, as I wrote here. But the new Speedmaster Professional was simply irresistible. I do blame Ben Hodges a little bit, as he went for the Omega Speedmaster Professional fake online with sapphire crystal not too long ago and wrote about it here.
Not only Ben, but I also noticed a lot of the new copy Omega Speedmaster Moonwatch models popping up on Instagram using the #SpeedyTuesday of course, and on the feed of the #SpeedyTuesday Facebook Group. I got influenced, you could say.
