The replica Omega Speedmaster – what a hype this replica watches has experienced in recent years and decades. Especially the moonwatch. So that legendary watch that was on the moon in 1969 with Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin. Since then, replica Omega has cleverly built and expanded both the model range and the legend around the clock. And that is reflected in the prices today. Both the new and the old “Speedies”.
For the price and performance of the replica Omega Speedmaster Moonwatch I have already written a lot here (including graphics). And as for the vintage replica watches, the most sought-after models now easily reach five to six-digit auction prices. For comparison: A new replica Omega Speedmaster Professional Moonwatch is currently (still) at 4,300 euros. And here we talk about the hand-wound classic and Plexiglas – as an introduction to the big and increasingly expensive Speedmaster world.
While the above-mentioned Speedmaster Mark range (ebay partner link) has produced quite powerful watches of 42mm and more, the replica Omega Speedmaster Automatic Triple Date is more of a filigree grade. Their housing measures only 39 millimeters. And I have to admit that it was a bit unusual for me to wear such a small Speedmaster at the beginning. But: As we know at the latest since the article The Top 3 Watch Trends of 2018, watches under 40mm are the latest craze;)
But seriously: The main reasons why I bought the replica Omega Speedmaster Automatic Triple Date (Ref. 3520.50 – partner link) on ebay (partner link) a few months ago are, on the one hand, the automatic movement (Omega 1151 or ETA 7751) and the other the complication belonging to this chronograph movement (additional function) called Triple Date. It shows you the date (long arrow pointer), the month and the day of the week (two windows in the totalizer at 12 o’clock). But that’s not all: a 24-hour ad is still on top (totalizer at 9 o’clock with a small arrow pointer). Plus stopwatch, which should not be missing from a Speedmaster. And: A beautifully curved and anti-reflective sapphire crystal. In other words, this small and compact replica Omega Speedmaster is packed with useful features and features (see replica Omega Product Sheet). That’s more than Moonwatch has to offer.
