Omega × Swatch Speedmaster MoonSwatch
As I hinted at in the text, and more than hinted at in the pictures, the perfect fake Omega Speedmaster MoonSwatch on my wrist was the Mission To Uranus model. Perhaps matched only by the Mission To Mars, the Uranus model is one of the most eye-catching of the Swiss made replica Omega MoonSwatches on offer. And catch eyes it did!
From the Vacheron Constantin booth, where the only thing that matched our enthusiasm for the 222 was the VC staff’s joy at seeing the MoonSwatch for the first time. This happened time and time again. At Ressence, at Czapek, at Oris, at Tudor, and at just about every other meeting we attended. Everywhere, the top UK fake Omega MoonSwatch put smiles on people’s faces.
So, the question is, what was it like wearing a €250 “plastic” copy watch at Watches And Wonders? But that’s far from the only question. To answer the first, the watch drew attention and its fair share of questions throughout the day. Questions like, “Is that the new MoonSwatch?”, “How long did you wait in line?”, and “Are you looking to flip it?” These were often followed by, “Is it OK if I try it on?” The Swiss movement replica Omega was often greeted with excitement, smiles, and a general sense of positivity. It seems most of the crowd, even at WAW2022, was genuinely happy to see it. Their reactions align perfectly with my opinion of the super clone watch. If it puts a smile on your face, that’s enough. No need to overthink it.
A one-watch show
Most people I met agreed. I say “most” as there was a little bit of eye-rolling and others who politely shared their disinterest in personally owning one. It’s a perspective that I respect but one I do not necessarily align with. Perhaps at some point, I would have agreed. A healthy distaste for the mainstream and hype is something that I got over. Nowadays, I approach these things with a healthy dose of skepticism of the high quality fake Omega Speedmaster but still allow myself to indulge and enjoy the things loved by the majority. I think that’s something which we should all do more often. Cynicism has its place, but sometimes, you just have to go with the flow and enjoy yourself.
On that note, don’t stress, don’t buy these cheap fake watches on the gray market, and DO order yours when they are eventually available online. There’s a pretty good chance it will put a smile on your face and that of those around you as well. That’s a field-tested fact.
