Another perfect fake Omega Speedmaster that takes its design cues from the very first of its kind is the Speedmaster Broad Arrow 3551.50.00, which debuted in 2002. The “problem” is that the 42 × 14.5mm watch was outfitted with the self-winding Co-Axial caliber 3303. Yes, it had three sub-dials like the original Speedy, but it also had a date at 6 o‘clock. The newer/updated version is the luxury replica Omega Speedmaster ’57 Co-Axial Master Chronometer Chronograph 3126.96.36.199.01.001. The case now measures 40.5 × 12.99mm.
Proportionally, the Swiss made Omega replica watches are better than the automatic from 2002, but there are a couple of elements I can’t get over. Yes, you guessed it, the black-dial version has too much “fauxtina”. But I also don’t care for two registers on my Speedy or a date, for that matter.
The movement of the current cheap fake Omega Speedmaster ’57, the manual-wind caliber 9906, is stunning, though, and the size is perfect. Still, when it comes to Speedmasters I would like to wear/own, I want them to be a 42mm version with an asymmetric case, just like the UK top super clone Omega 3594.50 Replica.
My “Strawberry Fields Forever” Speedmaster
All sizes, dial layouts, and movement options aside, the 1:1 replica Omega Speedmaster 3594.50 Replica is the one for me because it just feels right — come on, just look at it in its utterly svelte gray attire! Yes, the “Tintin” 3188.8.131.52.01.004 that I wore the other day is also a hypnotically good watch, but it doesn’t feel perfect on my wrist like the Replica. And I don’t know if it’s wise to share this with you, but I will do so anyway: dear Fratelli, the Replica is an under-the-radar Speedy. According to RJ, by the end of 2003, the aaa fake Omega Speedmaster 3594.50 Replica was taken out of production. This model was never a bestseller. And that’s a good thing price-wise. I will say no more. Other than that, wearing RJ’s Father’s Day Speedy was like wearing “Strawberry Fields Forever” on my wrist. Just watch this space.
