Shanka’s Cheap 1:1 Omega Speedmaster Replica Watches UK Was A Fascination Decades In The Making

While growing up in Sri Lanka and Australia, Shanka gravitated towards watches made for adventure, and none more so than the perfect Omega Speedmaster replica watches.

Shanka has been a reader for many years. Since he and I both live in Australia, I had the privilege to meet him in person over a coffee mere meters from the ocean. One of the best things about this hobby is getting to meet people from all different walks of life.

It all starts with a vintage wall clock

Shanka’s AAA UK Omega fake watches journey started when he was a kid growing up in Sri Lanka. “As a kid, I always had a fascination for mechanical things and trying to understand how things worked. Looking back, I had more fun opening up my toy robots and RC cars to see how they worked than actually playing with them, pretty much driving my parents mad.

“One of my earliest childhood memories was of being absolutely captivated by a clock. I used to spend my school holidays at my grandmother’s home in the countryside in Sri Lanka. She had this great big wall clock with a striking hour and pendulum, and if I looked closely enough, I could peek into the mechanical gears moving inside,” he said.

Shanka’s first watches

Despite his interest in mechanical objects, Shanka’s first watch was a Casio. “My first watch was a Casio F-91W, like many kids who grew up in the early ’90s. After that came a Casio G-Shock DW-5000, which got me through high school. Also being very nostalgic, I bought the 25th-anniversary edition as the original came out in my birth year (1983), and I still wear it from time to time. Anyway, I don’t think that boy ever grew up because I still am fascinated by how things work. Best replica Omega watches captivate me from the pure craftsmanship perspective but also due to their intricate and mechanical nature,” he said.

In 2000, Shanka moved to Australia. It was here that his passion for mechanical luxury Omega copy watches started to grow from that initial curiosity as a child. “I started playing around with ‘real’ mechanical watches when I was first moved to Sydney back in 2000… I was still pretty young. In fact, I really had no idea back then, and I tended to gravitate towards Seikos, which were also the only watches I could afford at the time. Anyway, I remember walking into a watchmaker in the Sydney CBD, getting a quote of $200 to fix my Seiko, and being floored because that was almost all I earned in my casual job. I had to save up for a month to get that watch serviced,” he said.

Bitten by the watch bug

Nevertheless, the costs of servicing mechanical Swiss movements replica Omega watches did not dissuade Shanka. In fact, he’d been bitten by the watch bug. “My first big-boy watch was a vintage Omega Genève with a blue dial. I wore the heck out of it for a few years. I also wore it when most of my friends were wearing chunky G-Shocks and fashion brands. Although it was only about 34mm and wore like a ladies’ watch, I absolutely loved it because it was different from what everyone else wore. Also, underneath it all was a piece of mechanical engineering that, at the time, no one else could appreciate except me.

“I’m always looking for my next watch, but my current rotation is mainly a CWC RN Diver automatic, Panerai Radiomir 512, Omega Seamaster 300M 2531.80, a Zenith Rainbow Flyback, and, of course, a Speedy. Over the years, I have dabbled a lot in vintage watches but have also tried consolidating them down to only a handful. At the moment, my most prized vintage pieces are a Heuer Autavia 11036 and a stunning Omega Seamaster 176.004 that has a lot of sentimental value as it was my late uncle’s.”

Shanka’s fascination with the Omega Speedmaster

One thing that remained with Shanka on his journey into the watch hobby, though, was a fascination with and love for the top China Omega Speedmaster fake watches. This passion is partly what led him to Fratello. As you know, Fratello has become a hub for Speedmaster enthusiasts as founder RJ is a Speedmaster collector and the “instigator” of Speedy Tuesday.

“The Omega Speedmaster was always a grail for me growing up. Space travel and science fiction took up a lot of my brain capacity as a kid growing up in the ’80s. The more I read and dug deeper into the first Moon landing, I got hooked on the idea of growing up to be an astronaut, again, pretty much like every other kid my age. The first pictures I would have seen of an Omega Speedmaster super clone watches shop would have been from the Moon landing articles or Omega ads in LIFE Magazine (my dad used to read them and would have a stack of old magazines at home). This must have been when the association was burnt into my psyche,” Shanka explained.

Owning a new Speedmaster manages to provide a watch icon with a vintage design and the advantages of modern build quality, Shanka told me. “Vintage watches always had more appeal to me than modern watches because they had more character. The only downside was that they didn’t suit my active lifestyle very well, so I was always a little worried about them. I was always mindful to take a vintage watch off when I was playing sports, swimming, and so on, whereas modern watches didn’t get the same level of attention.”

An Omega Speedmaster to celebrate a life milestone

It was a special birthday, and what that year symbolized for Shanka finally led to the purchase of his very own Swiss made replica Omega Speedmaster watches. “Although I always admired the watch from a distance, I never felt I quite deserved the Speedy until I told myself that I would get one for my 40th. I couldn’t be happier now with my 3861, which I feel is a massive step up from the previous models in terms of wearability, upgrades to the movement, and the bracelet. I’ve had it for just over a year now, and it still brings a smile when I look at it on my wrist as it brings out the sentimentality around it. As impossible as it sounds, if I ever had to go down to a one-watch collection, I think this would be it for me.”

Shanka’s other most frequently worn watch is the Tudor Black Bay 58 in navy blue, a watch I also own. “Honestly, the Tudor Black Bay 58 is one of the best watches out there both in terms of versatility and build quality. I wear it on a President-style bracelet that gives it a big bump of vintage looks,” Shanka said. The bracelet happens to be one I sold Shanka in the past, which shows just how small this watch community can be (in the best sort of way!).

Closing thoughts

It was wonderful to catch up with one of readers as part of this feature. Shanka’s journey is a testament to how we can attach meaning and emotional significance to these intricate mechanical objects. By creating memories with them on our wrists, we give them a much deeper meaning than as a simple time-telling device. As for Shanka, he’s looking at a few interesting brands for his next Omega replica watches wholesale. “I’m really happy at the moment (if that’s possible) with my current collection, and I’d like to enjoy wearing them before getting anything significant any time soon. But that doesn’t stop me from making an occasional impulse buy when I see something I really like. There’s so much value out there at the moment with a lot of the vintage reissues from brands like Doxa and Nivada Grenchen.”

Bling It On: 2024 Luxury UK Fake Omega’s Bold New Speedmaster 38 Watches Shine Bright

UK best replica Omega’s latest Speedmaster 38 watches are the brightest additions to the collection, with a diamond-paved bezel framing the line’s new dial colours—olive green and chocolate brown. These diamonds are much larger than those on the collection’s previous references with paved bezels. In fact, the brand have done away with the iconic ‘Moonwatch’ tachymeter scale so that diamonds, measuring approximately 1.5 carat, give the cheap 1:1 fake Omega Speedmaster 38 watches a brighter and more noticeable allure. Four new timepieces in steel and two each in the brand’s proprietary Sedna gold and Moonshine gold feature dials in green and brown, with diamond-ringed oval sub-dials.

Speedmaster 38: Contemporary Icon For Smaller Wrists

Designed for smaller wrist sizes, Omega introduced the Speedmaster 38 line in 2017. Design cues from the iconic and recognisable Moonwatch were fused with contemporary codes to set the collection apart from the 42mm high quality Omega Speedmaster replica watches. The addition of diamonds surrounding the tachymeter scale on the bezel, and oval sub-dials with a diamond-studded frame on the dial gave the timepiece an unmistakeable elegance.

New perfect copy Omega addition watches to the collection are decidedly bolder, with 52 large rocks on the bezel, instead of the 100-odd smaller stones that decorated the line’s earlier references. Diamonds frame the sub-dials at three, six and nine o’clock, with a vertically elongated oval date window at six, and the polished crown at three is decorated with a diamond. There are also two small diamonds on either side of the 12 o’clock marker on the dial.

Precious Metals Of The New Speedmaster 38 Collection

Dial colours on the new models are inspired by Omega’s historic references. The green takes after a 42mm Swiss made Omega Speedmaster replica watches with a green dial in Moonshine gold, while the brown dial is an almost exact replica of the brand’s De Ville Chocolate timepiece. Four green dial versions are available on steel or 18-karat Moonshine gold, with matching metal bracelets or green alligator leather straps. Similarly, the chocolate version comes in either a steel case or 18-karat Sedna gold, the pinkish hue of which beautifully complements the rich brown of the dial. Strap options include brown alligator leather ones or metal bracelets in steel and Sedna gold.

On the dial, diamond-paved rings surround oval, opaline sub-dials and the oval date window rests within the 12-hour recorder at six o’clock. Highlights matching the case include rhodium plated indexes and hands on the dials of the steel AAA wholesale Omega super clone watches, or Sedna and Moonshine gold for the precious metal timepieces.

Behind the closed caseback, powering these top replica Omega watches is the brand’s automatic co-axial chronometer calibre 3330, which offers enhanced precision, shock resistance, anti-magnetism, and a power reserve of 52 hours.

The absence of the tachymeter scale on the bezel might be a polarising choice, but for most, the shine and allure of the diamonds more than makes up for it. These bold and beautiful China online fake Omega Speedmaster 38 watches highlight the collection’s strong design code in colours and materials that make relevant an icon that once travelled into space.

Top AAA Omega Speedmaster 38MM Collection Replica Watches UK Proves Big Things Come With Small(ish) Dials

There are few timepieces in the world that boast a legacy as storied and celebrated as the OMEGA Speedmaster. The cheap Omega replica watches that famously went to the Moon has also enjoyed an illustrious career as an Olympic timing instrument, motor racing tool watch, and has long been a favourite of James Bond himself (well, sort of). To describe the timepiece as pioneering would be an astronomical understatement and even in 2024, the UK 1:1 Omega Speedmaster fake watches continues to innovate. Fresh off unveiling a duo of special edition Chronoscope models ahead of the 2024 Paris Olympic Games, OMEGA has kept the good vibes rolling, dropping not one but eight new Speedmaster 38mm releases.

New OMEGA Speedmaster 38mm Releases

Unveiled at a lavish ceremony in Milan, the updated high quality replica Omega Speedmaster 38mm collection watches refreshes the visual approach of the classic lineup with some dazzling new additions. Each chronograph is adorned with a stunning set of 52 paved diamonds around the bezel, but as if that wasn’t enough, OMEGA has also dropped diamonds into the crown and subdials.

Thankfully, best Omega copy watches hasn’t strayed too far from the beaten path design-wise, with the oval-shaped chronograph sub-dials again paying homage to the maison’s classic De Ville models of the past. The vertical date window at 6 o’clock also makes an appearance, much to delight of OMEGA fans.

Most importantly perfect Swiss Omega replica watches has updated the classic range to feature two models in its proprietary Moonshine Gold material, which now sit alongside the existing stainless steel and 18-carat Sedna Gold options. Both new Moonshine Gold models feature a green PVD dial, a vertical date window at 6 o’clock and diamond-polished 18-carat Moonshine Gold hour/minute hands. You can also choose to wear the piece on a matching polished and brushed bracelet or a green leather strap with a precious metal buckle.


At its heart, the new 38mm release remains a Speedmaster through and through. The new super clone Omega watches wholesale are powered by the Co-Axial Calibre 3330 self-winding movement, which was famously introduced to increase long-lasting accuracy and provide a more stable power reserve rate. While not OMEGA’s top-of-line movement, the Si14 silicon balance spring-adorned Calibre 3330 is an ultra-premium chronometer that still arives officially certified. Better yet, all of the new 38mm models feature a screw-in caseback that is stamped with the classic Speedmaster seahorse medallion.

Size Matters: The Small Dial Trend

While the inclusion of the precious gemstones does skew the new collection in a slightly more feminine direction, it must be said that the 38mm diameter makes for an interesting talking point. Traditionally far larger than a ladies’ watch and on the smaller side for recent OMEGAs, the latest 38mm Swiss movements replica Omega Speedmaster collection watches continues to embrace a new era of wrist-size androgeny.

When the collection was first introduced in 2017, the reduced 38mm diameter size spoke to a traditional sensibility, harking back to a bygone era of small dial watches. It opposed the big and bold design cues of the early noughties and birthed a renewed interest in sleek and refined 2024 China fake Omega watches alongside perennial luxury watchmaking mainstays such as Cartier and Zenith. Now, the brand’s slightly more feminine focus is having the same impact on women, albeit in reverse.

Closing the Size Gap

In recent years, the divide between men’s and women’s luxury Omega replica watches has slowly closed, due in part to a burgeoning horological industry but also to the influence of celebrities. Model Heidi Klum famously wears a 40mm Panerai Radiomir ref. PAM00103m while Victoria Beckham’s Patek Philippe Nautilus 5711/R could hardly be described as ‘dainty’. OMEGA is boldly (and wisely) tapping into the ethos with the Speedmaster 38mm collection, a lineup that speaks to watchmaking legacy, precision and innovation of the most fashionable sense.

The new OMEGA Speedmaster 38mm collection is available at OMEGA boutiques worldwide and via the official OMEGA online storefront. The pieces range from AUD$28,950 for the stainless steel case on strap through to AUD$77,025 for the Moonshine Gold on bracelet.
