Among the large repertoire of designs in the history of Omega Speedmasters replica for sale, the “Ed White” is a standout because it has the best combination of vintage Speedmaster elements. The nickname comes from the American astronaut Edward Higgins White II, who, in 1965, was the first American astronaut to complete extra-vehicular activity wearing this reference on a long velcro strap around his spacesuit.
First off, it’s not noticeable at first, but if you look at the super clone watch closely, it has very strong, straight lugs instead of the more widely known twisted lyre lugs, which appeared a few years later. It’s one of those differences people know to appreciate if they know about vintage 1:1 replica Omega Speedmasters. It also has the applied Omega logo with the caliber 321 movement, compared to the printed AAA fake Omega UK logo with the caliber 861 movement in the later models. It’s simply a sharp-looking watch, inside and out.
The part that will throw most people off is the Pulsations bezel. It’s a rare bezel variant that was offered as an option to the buyers at the time. Though the Speedmasters have long been associated with US space missions, the French text, “Gradué pour 15 pulsations,” sort of gives a Swiss nod to this perfect replica Omega.
I like the international feel and how the bezel is very purpose-driven at the same time. I’d say you can never go wrong with a cheap fake Omega Speedmaster, and I’m always tempted when I see one. That sense of self-satisfaction at having something subtly different, something which most people won’t recognize, is what I live for, and this Swiss made copy watch checks that box for me.
