FAKE OMEGA SPEEDMASTER X-33
In the 1990s, Swiss replica Omega UK set out to design a more modern Speedmaster that would accompany manned missions to Mars. The Swiss watchmaker spent five years developing the watch with astronauts from around the world, and in 1998 released the original X-33. The quartz-powered super clone watch featured a titanium case, a kevlar strap, and an LCD display, and was loaded with astronaut-desired functions, like extra-strong lighting and elapsed time measurements for missions up to 1,000 days.
Designed to be used while wearing astronaut gloves, the watch was worn on dozens of Space Shuttle and space station missions, but proved to be a flop with consumers and was discontinued. However, in 2014, AAA replica Omega brought back the X-33 as the new Skywalker X-33. Sporting an arguably more palatable appearance and a movement developed, tested, and qualified by the European Space Agency, the perfect fake Omega Speedmaster X-33 has proven to have greater staying power than the original. And, like its predecessor, it’s been a major hit with astronauts and flies on many, if not most, modern missions.
REPLICA OMEGA SPEEDMASTER PROFESSIONAL
By far the most famous space watch there is, 1:1 replica Omega Speedmaster actually journeyed to the great beyond prior to the existence of the version that would come to be known as the Moonwatch. NASA astronaut Wally Schirra wore his personal cheap fake Omega Speedmaster ref. CK 2998 on board the Sigma 7 craft during the Mercury-Atlas 8 mission on October 3, 1962. It would be just two years later that another top copy Omega Speedmaster reference would be deemed suitable for manned space flights by NASA — ref. 105.003, later known as the “Ed White” after the astronaut who wore it during the first American spacewalk in 1965 — and five years after that when the Speedy would leave its mark on the surface of the moon.
Swiss movement fake Omega Speedmaster Professionals, also referred to as Moonwatches, have been on the wrists of astronauts for all six manned moon landings of the Apollo program, leaving no doubt that the watch is deserving of its moniker. The Omega Speedmaster replica for sale also played an important role during the harrowing Apollo 13 mission in 1970.
That mission did not make it to the moon after an explosion occurred on the service module, and the crew had to shut down the ship’s system to conserve power just to make it home. Without digital timing instruments, the astronauts famously used their high quality replica Omega Speedmasters to manually time the 14-second engine burns to successfully splash down back on Earth and avoid total disaster. While we don’t have an official registry to go off of, top copy Omega’s flagship watch has almost certainly been worn more in space more than any other watch.
