To celebrate the rendezvous between cosmonauts and astronauts in 1975 (Apollo-Soyuz mission), Swiss made fake Omega introduced the Speedmaster Apollo-Soyuz in 1976. It was a special order for the Italian distributor of Omega, Fratelli de Marchi. It wasn’t the first special, numbered, or limited edition, as the gold Speedmaster had the honor of being the first. But it was surely one of the first cheap replica Omega Speedmasters that Omega produced in a limited quantity. The Speedmaster Apollo-Soyuz is based on the then-standard Speedmaster Professional 145.022, but with a special dial and an Oyster-style reference 1168 bracelet.
Also, the pushers on this perfect fake Omega Speedmaster Apollo-Soyuz are slightly larger than the ones on the standard Speedmaster Professional (5.5mm in diameter instead of the usual 5mm). This also meant that the center case needed a slight adjustment to make them fit. Antiquorum rates this 1:1 super clone watch as in excellent condition with some signs of wear on the case. In the images, it appears that there are scratches on the dial, but they are actually in the Hesalite (Plexiglass) crystal.
The hands have lost some of their tritium material as well. Antiquorum estimates this watch to sell for between €30,000 and €60,000 ($33,900 and $68,000). This high quality replica Omega Speedmaster Apollo-Soyuz is numbered 499 out of 500, in a series numbered from 0 to 499. So this example is actually the last one of the batch, assuming Swiss movement copy Omega produced in them in this order, of course.
For a long time, it was not very clear whether there were 400 or 500 of these luxury replica watches uk. Eventually, sources confirmed that there were 500 in total. On the case back, though they’re barely visible in these images, you will find the I (for Italy) and the Swiss movement fake Omega logo in a circle with the number of the watch engraved in between them.
