Best 1:1 Replica Omega Speedmaster Professional “Tintin”
My very first Speedy was given to me by my late father in the summer of 2015 to commemorate my master’s degree. This Swiss made fake Omega is close to my heart and has seen a lot of wrist time. In fact, it was my daily watch for a few years. It might be the most scratched-up Tintin in existence. It was on my wrist while traveling to India and the Arctic Circle (in winter), and it never missed a beat.
We got the super clone watch brand new from AD at the time and even managed to receive a discount. I pay no mind to the prices this model fetches nowadays and happily use it during classic-car rallies or just for going to the office, for a walk in the forest, and so on. It’s a wonderful piece to look at, and I love that the racing dial differentiates it from a standard Speedy just enough to confuse people who are not part of the cheap fake Omega hobby.
The one that started it all
When I got it, I put it on an original AAA quality replica Omega NATO strap, and I have been wearing it like this most of the time. During the 2019 Speedy Tuesday event in Frankfurt, Charlie Duke signed this strap, which made the event very special to me (thanks again to Fratello for organizing it!). In fact, it was the 2015 Speedy Tuesday get-together in Düsseldorf that led me to get the Swiss movement copy Omega in the first place and opened my heart to the watch community. At the time, I was wearing a vintage Heuer Carrera and got in touch with RJ because I was looking for a Speedy. I was overwhelmed with all the different variations from vintage to new and limited editions at the time. I felt welcome in the community from the first moment, and I had a blast of a day seeing all these different Speedies, trying them on, and talking with fellow watch nerds about which one to get. This day really changed my view on the subject and led to five Omega Speedmasters fake for sale in my modest collection.
Would I ever sell this high quality fake Omega? Definitely not! But it’s not the only one…
