The Cheap Fake Omega Speedmaster That Almost Wasn’t – OMEGA Speedmaster Professional Moonwatch Chronograph ‘Tintin’ Ref. 311.

Baselworld 2013 had a heck of a Speedmaster lineup for perfect replica Omega. The Speedmaster ’57 was released as an homage to the first year of the model’s production and the Dark Side of the Moon took up all of the headlines with its black ceramic case. A footnote that year was also the release of a luxury fake Omega Speedmaster racing model with a white and red ring around the dial.

This initially overlooked model is the one that would eventually catch the attention of collectors. Rumblings about an interesting backstory behind this watch would soon come to light. Originally this watch was supposed to be a collaboration between best 1:1 replica Omega and the comic book character Tintin, inspired by the issue titled Destination Moon.

Published almost two full decades before Neil and Buzz visited the Moon with their own AAA quality fake Omega Speedmasters, it had the title character Tintin flying to the moon on a red and white checkered rocket. Unfortunately, the collaboration fell through at the last minute.

The last-minute change meant that the production run was smaller than originally planned, less marketing was given to it, and the amount that reached the market has never been verified. Those all add up to a collectors dream super clone watch with a built in story, and it looks great too.
