Another itch to scratch when building a watch collection with €25,000 is the perfect replica Omega Speedmaster. Nacho already selected the current Moonwatch, the perfect modern-day version of the iconic Fratello favorite. But my pick is the Omega Speedmaster ’57 Replica ref. 3594.50. It has gotten quite a bit of coverage in recent times here at Fratello, but that’s not without reason. This tribute to the original 1:1 fake Omega Speedmaster CK2915 from 1957 is an often-overlooked model. But as Robert-Jan has explained multiple times, and Lex will also tell, the copy watch is actually brilliant. Seeing Lex wear the watch on several different straps was what made a lasting impression on me. That’s when I knew that the Replica was truly special.
Although not an exact reproduction of the CK2915, the overall look and feel are in line with the 1957 luxury replica Omega Speedmaster. I particularly love the combination of the dark gray dial, stainless steel bezel, and Broad Arrow hands. The watch also features a 42mm Speedmaster Professional case, Hesalite crystal, and trusted hand-wound caliber 1861. While it was launched in 1997 as part of the large Mission Cases carrying 23 super clone watches for sale, the Replica model was also produced as a non-limited edition from 1998 until 2003.
This makes it a neo-vintage Speedy that boasts classic looks. Thankfully, those looks haven’t lost a single bit of their impact. At just about €4,570 for this example, it is the perfect aaa quality replica Omega Speedmaster for my watch collection.
