Of course, this is the other chronograph from a major Swiss replica watch brand. Decades of history, went to the moon, etc. It lacks a few of the features that make the Swiss fake Rolex Daytona the Daytona, namely an automatic movement and ceramic bezel, but what it doesn’t have there it makes up for in purity.
Lucky for us, AAA fake Omega UK updated the Speedmaster at the beginning of 2021. And while I haven’t historically been a “Speedy guy”, the newest 1:1 replica Omega Speedmaster Professional Moonwatch “Master Chronometer” finally has me understanding why there’s a common watch collecting axiom that “everyone needs a Speedmaster.”
The updated Omega Speedmaster replica for men features Omega’s caliber 3861, a master-chronometer certified manual-wind chronograph movement with 50 hours of power reserve that runs at 21,600 vph. The master-chronometer certification means it’s been tested to within +/-0.5 seconds per day.
The thing that got me about the newest 1:1 fake Omega Speedmaster though, is the bracelet. Compared to previous Speedmaster bracelets, the links are smaller, the clasp wears more comfortably, and it tapers more from the lugs to the clasp. The overall effect is a bracelet that wears much better than any recent cheap replica Omega Speedmaster I’ve tried on, seamlessly draping over the wrist.
Sure, the caliber upgrade is important to Speedy diehards, but when I tried on the new Omega Speedmaster replica for sale at a local boutique, it was the bracelet that immediately captured my attention (and had me thinking about opening my wallet).
Aesthetically, there are also some dial upgrades to add depth to the tracks and subdials, but the form of the latest version of the Swiss movement copy Omega ST 105.012 will be familiar: 42mm in diameter, twisted lugs, robust and asymmetrical stainless steel case. But much like a top fake Rolex Daytona, you don’t change a classic, you merely improve upon it.
